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 :-)

I am no Pilsner fan, but this one was just aweful.

look: 3.25 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2.5

Format: an embossed light brown bottle and a standard German macro label. Reaks of average.

Appearance: a light amber with scarce carbonation. A three-finger white head froths up before settling to a rocky finger with good retention and a decent lace. Looks reasonable.

Aroma: not much aroma to this one - just boring cheap grains and a touch of floral / earth hops. A bit 'meh'.

Taste: more awkward grain fug on the taste, with some grass hops in there. Not the best pilsener ever. By a long shot.

Aftertaste: quite an unfortunate mouth-turning vinegary bitterness right on the finish. I don't feel like making funny noises each time I finish a mouthful.

Mouth feel: moderate in body with a lighter to medium carbonation. Feels a bit flat.

Overall: this certainly ain't a good pilsener. Awkward aroma and flavour with a bittering aftertaste that is vinegary instead of hop-driven. I'll leave this one alone, even for AU$43 a case.
