Served on tap, almost no head. Nice bitter finish and good feel. I'll need to try this from the bottle.

Pours a nice transparent golden color.
Smells like sweet bread, honey and pears.
Taste is outstanding! Sweet bread malt with honey, pear and a light lingering zing of hops.
Outstanding session beer.

Pours a light golden color with a nice finger length head which retains as a persistent lace throughout.
Aroma reminded me mostly of fruity esters.
What a taste! This is not your average pilsner by any means. Lots of complexity to the taste yet wonderful balance. Starts off as a fruity taste; like apples or pears. As I drink further, the hops element becomes more pronounced and leaves a dry and bitter aftertaste that perfectly balances the fruity and malty sweetness. There is also lots of bread like elements as well as herbal and spicy characteristics. Really a lot going on in this one.
Great feel. Light bodied and crisp, a spritzy carbonation that prickles the tongue. So drinkable, I could drink 10 more of these. (o.k. maybe not)
Truly one of my favorite german pilsners. I've had it before and enjoyed it each time. This will continue to be a go to beer for me!

Average. Better than your super mass produced but not as good as others.
