Short and sweet:

Party beer, and I would walk past it if it wasn't on sale.

This beer sampled as part of a tasting tonight. You kinda forget how nice this beer is in its simplicity and elegance.

Fairly standard when compared to other authentic German pilsners. What stands out is a very rich boquet of floral hops that hint toward fruitiness, herbal notes, and a nectar-like character that accents the sweet pilsner malt flavors and aromas. Light sulfers give the beer teeth, but that floral hop aroma and flavor supresses any would-be match stick sulfery character. Round and moderately creamy with a mild hint of grain astringency. Finishes crisp and with a balanced hop-malt lingering. A terrific small beer.

This is a classic Pilsner where the malt is highlighted and for the most part singular. The nose is bready, doughy, obviously Pilsner malty and has a toasted aroma.

The flavor has a crackery Pilsner malt taste with a tad of bitterness and a clean feel. This is super easy to drink, is very light and not nearly as poor as one would believe.

Not the best German beer, but it is ok.

I wished they had other German beer here in L.A..
