An excellent pilsner. One of the best. Not to be underestimated. Smooth, clean flavor, with a nice rich malt backbone and bright finish. It is really good beer. Never disappoints.

Poured from a cool 12 oz. bottle into a lager glass. Golden yellow color, 2 fingers of head, some aeration and lacing.

Aroma of mostly barley and malt (equal parts). No hops.

Taste of barley and hay, some light hops.

Mouthfeel: Nothing significant to report.

Overall: A mildly hoppy beer. Good introduction to pilsners. With its history, I conclude that this is how pilsners must've tasted.

Germany, the land of the pilsener and then Radeberger.
I really like a good German pils, but this is not one of them.

Smell: Nothing
Taste: carbonation with a tuch of hops.
Mouthfeel is solid.

I'm usually very critical with my reviews, but this one was a pleasant surprise. I purchased a can from the LCBO. Pours a beautiful amber, with very little head that doesn't stay long. Smells slightly musky and spicy with a grassy overtone. Initial mouthfeel is very pleasant: beautiful carbonation, taste that is expansive but stops just short of full bodied. The hops character is well balanced. A very nice lingering aftertaste and refreshing and satisfying overall. For $2.45 CAD a can, this is a very light and refreshing brew. Definitely not the best German style Pilsner around, but it is authentic enough and quite good. The irony is that I lived in Germany for many years and never had a chance to taste this particular beer :-)
