Pours into a Bitburger pils glass a slightly hazy yellow with a finger or so of head. Looks the part. Well carbed. Looks like beer, you know?
Flowers, crackers, grass. Both in the nose and the taste. A pils doing what we all probably wish more of them would do - be refreshing and super drinkable but without being boring. Lovely hop presence - floral, lemony, grassy/herbal sitting atop a bed of crackers and bread dough. A spot of honey, perhaps. Longish bitter finish. The hops are definitely in charge here.
Light-bodied, fizzy and ridiculously easy to drink. Crisp, just a little creamy. This is pretty much as good as people will generally tell you it is. The embodiment of Summer. You shuck some oysters, I'll go buy some more.

On draft at Buen Apetito Mexican Restaurant in Waterville, Maine. Served in a 16-ounce shaker glass.
Appearance - bubbly, clear, and yellow;
Smell - Slight floral hop aroma that grew as the lager warmed;
Taste - Dry and refreshing with a floral hop taste in the finish;
Mouthfeel - thoroughly carbonated and not watery;
Overall - One of the best lagers that I've had. This is what green bottled Euro beers should probably taste like if they weren't always skunked.

I recently tried it when in the UK and I am seriously surprised that something like this is sold. It's pretty much like a homebrewer's first pils. It is nowhere near the subtley balanced flavours other examples such as Pilsner Urquell display.
The taste is quite harsh, steely. The body is way too thin and lacks just a little bit of the sweetness that is necessary for even the dry beers like "Flensburger" or "Jever".
I'd go back to the drawing board with this one...
