From BeerAdvocate Magazine Volume II, Issue V:

Finally, the traditional 500mL bottle has arrived. This is the same bottle size that a German would get, yet it comes in a reusable plastic carrier that holds 20 bottles. Now if we could only convince the US consumer this is more practical.

The lacing from a hard pour leaves a lively crest on the glass--right-to-style clarity shows its bright golden yellow color. Fragrant hop aroma of earthy, minty wild herbs and fresh cut grass, clean through and through. Crispness rides on top with a big refreshing character, smoothness rolls over the palate and cleans house with a fluffy moderately-sized body. Bitterness is drawn out and does not simply hit the taste buds with one whack. Within that it throws a smattering of lemon, herbal, faint mint and spicy flavor. The dry malt backbone sustains and holds this beer together very well. Crusty baguettes come to mind as it wraps up.

Looking for a straight up, everyday Pils? Here it is.

Presentation: 11.2 oz brown bottle with a white a gold label, “Enjoy the best taste before” date and a blurb about the beer in the back label.

Appearance: Mild haze amongst the stiff straw colour and topped with a white fluffy and creamy head that leaves a web like lace down the glass.

Smell: Faint white grape and a noticeable spicy herbal hop in the clean aroma, fresh husked grain in the nose too.

Taste: Light to medium in body and powdery crisp mouth feel. Light but sturdy malt flavour, grain flavour start to finish. Sharp bitterness that hits as soon as the carbonation peaks, assertive spicy flavours with herbal, tea and dried veggie undertones are complexities the hop profile lends. Hop leaf / herbal flavour lingers further than the spiciness with a very clean grain after taste.

Notes: An easy to drink traditional German Pils, clean and quick. A very refreshing light session beer. Surely a step or two above St. Pauli Girl and Beck’s. Could make for a most excellent fall back beer to have in the fridge year round.

I didn't mind this beer at all. A very crisp and refreshing pils with a fairly unique, spicy and interesting hop character ... and a slighly sweet, bready/grain rounding malt sweetness and medium body. Loved the pillowy creamy white head and its retention too. Aroma was typical though -- light sulfur, grain with delicate herbal hops on the side.

Easy drinking ... with some character.

I am generally not a fan of pilsners, and this one is no exception. This beer is very thin and bright-ish yellow, with no head to speak of. And it tastes thin, and very flat, and bland. The lack of flavor only accentuates the flatness, and vice versa. I've had this beer before and disliked it then too. Will definitely avoid in the future.

The beer comes in a clear yellow color.

The aroma has traditional lager yeast, a breadiness, some grain, a nice grassy hop.

The flavor follows with grassy hops, then onto a light crackery malt, and then a slight grainy quality. A clean drinking beer.

A bit thin on the mouthfeel, but still very crisp. The flavors aren't very exciting, but it's still clean drinking and good for the style.

Found this one at a local beer pusher for $6.99 a sixer and figured it was worth a try... Generic look/color, average foam, good carbonation/mouthfeel... Crisp, clean flavor... Yeah, I could pound back a boat-load of these... While Nothing spectacular, there's also nothing offensive or heavy--a good drinking beer with friends. Worth a try. Cheers!

Bought a 48 pack of these from Costco. Served in a pilsner.

A: Pours a transparent yellow with a very thin white head leaving small amounts of lacing.

S: Smells of wheat, grains, grass, malts

T: Has a mellow and sweet profile to it. Tastes of wheat, grass, grains, malts, tinge of hops

M: Very carbonated, has a light body to it. Very crisp and refreshing

O: Overall, at $0.75 per bottle, this was an excellent deal. A refreshing pilsner with an excellent flavor palate and great mouth feel, I'd recommend this though it is not ground shaking, it's still good.
