Nothing special, but a solid German Pilsener. Plenty of malts and grains with a touch of hops, moderate bodied and goes down fairly smoothly. A good beer with meals, I find it goes very good with pasta and other Italian foods.

Don't drink it much anymore, but before the craft beers took off, this was one of my goto beers.

Like many others, I'm reviewing this for old times' sake and because it was marked down....I go with an aggressive pour from a 22 ounce green bomber produces about a 3/4 inch head that settles quickly but does stick pretty well. It's a medium straw color with carbonation just a little on the high side. It has a sparkle to it and looks kinda pretty.

Skunky and floral aromas and flavors. I suppose there are noble hops present but the skunk overrides them to a large degree. It's really tough to detect any malt flavor. Thin mouth feel but fairly thirst quenching.

Granted that this isn't craft beer, it's not swill either. I remember me and a friend getting this or St. Pauli on payday back in the stone age (1980s). We thought we were pretty darn worldly and sophisticated! I sometimes still like beers such as Becks or Heinies for the lawnmowing or fence painting. I had not tried a Becks in awhile. I might have to go for a St. Pauli next.
