I got this at the Binny's store in Bloomingdale, IL. $2.99 for a 330ml brown bottle with a ceramic flip top cap. There is a best before freshness date stamped on the bottom of the back label. Mine is marked 8/12/14, so it's still plenty fresh.

The beer poured a mostly clear pale gold color with a 2½-finger fluffy white head that lasted several minutes. There was also a fair amount of thick lacing left on the glass.

Rather weak nose. Just picking up a little grassy hops.

Stronger than anticipated hop presence here. It's a bit bitter, but there's plenty of bready malt and lemon twang to keep it balanced. The bitterness continues to linger in the aftertaste.

Light to medium body with moderate to medium carbonation.

This is a decent German pilsener.

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.

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.
