Bought this from a local liquor store because I thought the label looked kinda cool. 1pt. 0.9 l oz. bottle with no bottling date or ABV listed.

A - Pours a dull hazy light straw color. <1" head took a fairly aggressive pour to achieve but manages to stick around a little.

S - Spicy and yeasty. Oranges, and a little residual sweetness in the nose. Maybe a little maltiness to it too.

T - This thing is pretty light in the flavor department. Not necessarily bad, but nothing to write home about either. It's slightly sweet with a fruity spiciness to it. There's more of a maltiness to it than expected. For the most part it's kinda bland. The more I drink the less I like.

M - Not much mouthfeel and the carbonation is much lighter than I had hoped for.

D - It's easy to drink but it's not that great. Better than BMC but not too far from it either.

2.35/5  rDev -6%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Appearance – Yellowish-orange in color with a rather smallish head.

Smell – The light floral hopping is spoiled by a sour aroma.

Taste – The soft flavor is overpowered by a tangy lemon-type of intrusion. I’m not sure what this is, but it’s nothing like any German Pils that I’ve had before. There’s almost a malt backbone here.

Mouthfeel – This one lacks the light smoothness and fluffy mouthfeel of a good German Pils.

Drinkability – I would not recommend this one for the style.

The beer poured weak, with a fast dissapating head. The color was dull orange. The smell was of faint hops. The initial taste was of a less-than-average German pils, but didn't carry any rancid tastes that the other rater seemed to imply. However, it was below standard for a German beer. The body was medium, however, and there was a decent residual malty sweetness with this Bavarian beer. The finish was quick, and there wasn't much to savor here.

Overall, this was an under-achieving beer. It's too bad, as it was produced in Bavaria, and they're known for their care and craftsmanship with pilseners. I'm not entirely sure that this beer was within its "best-before" designation (no indication on the label). I have a feeling that this beer found its way to my beer shop way too long past its prime. My hunch says, given the proper treatment (released in a reasonable manner), this beer would be a great and quaffable Bavarian offing. As it was, it just tasted old and dated.
