3.5/5  rDev -1.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

330ml flip top bottle, poured into a straight sided pint glass

Pours with a light yellow body. Head forms about half an inch thick, pure white. Settles down to a thin whispy layer, fair retention. Lots of lacing up and down the glass

Smell, grassy and ever so slightly floral hops, biscuity malt with a hint of mustiness. Little touch of fresh wort, steeping grains and a little bit of fresh herbs

Taste, crisp and grassy on the mouthfeel, little bit of hop bitterness and lemon zest character. Fairly thin mouthfeel, biscuity malt on the finish with some floral hops

A fairly solid pilsner, drinkable and with enough flavour to make the experience enjoyable

Got it from Germany. Bottle 0,33l.

A - Light golden with thin white foam. Low carbonation.
S - Mostly citrus and some adjuncts. Really nothing to exited.
T/M - Drinkable,nice bitter aftertaste,lots of grains. Medium carbonation. Not so good aroma,it is more industrial lager then good Pilsener.

O - I am not satisfied to be honest. Really nothing special in this beer.

3.74/5  rDev +5.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a crystal clear pale straw yellow in color with light to moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and just a hint of light golden yellow highlights. The beer has a half finger tall foamy white head that reduces to a couple of small patches of thick film surrounded by a thin film covering the entire surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of bready and cereal grain malts with light aromas of grassy hops.

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of cereal grain and bready malts followed by a light to moderate flavor of grassy hops. There is a light amount of bitterness which fades pretty quickly.

M: Slightly less than medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Light amounts of dryness are present in the finish.

O: I really enjoy the flavors and aromas of this German Pilsener - and it comes in a swing top which is a bonus (I just love that kind of bottle). Very easy to drink and sessionable.

look: 5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

11.2 oz. bottle poured into pilsener
(01.04.15 best by date)

L: clear as water, light yellow, very pale with a thick marshmallow of a head, over 1 inch of pure white that sticks and laces and is making me tear up -- THIS is a beer! bubbles continue to cascade up through the column and keeps a thick skin on top ... so much foam. not a hint of amber.

S: grain ice cold; a hint of grass; opens up into some nice bready malt notes as it warms

T: perfect balance of sharp hop bite and sweet bready malt ... very green grassy spicy hops; lightly toasted barley -- really tastes good even when ice cold (taste is there before the nose opens up)

F: perhaps just a hair light, watery ... otherwise, fantastic -- plenty of carbonation and enough weight

O: those German purity laws rock! LOVE this brew, and while it's just a twinge over-priced, this brew is going into my permanent rotation. it's simply what beer should be about -- no gimmicks, nothing tricked up or blinged out, just water, barley, hops and yeast in perfect concert
