3.63/5 rDev +6.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Appearance: Semi-transparent golden color. Head is big and frothy and lacing is rampant.
Smell: Light herbal hop aroma.
Taste: Slightly sweet with a mild biscuit character. Grassy hops give this a bitter, dry finish.
Mouthfeel: Crisp and clean, with a lighter body.
Drinkability: This screams for a session. Seems like it would be palette-cleansing.
Notes: One of the better German pilseners that is widely available. It's not that exciting; it's just a decent, low ABV German lager. Sometimes that's all a beer advocate needs!
Serving type: bottle

0.5L can brought in from Germany in a suitcase. Poured into some kind of pilsner. I actually have a glass from a bottle bought in the US, too, just as a curiosity if the imported versus local versions taste perceptibly different. Unfortunately, I couldn't find the same packaging.
Pours crystal clear, golden, with a fizzy head and light carbonation. This is essentially what I expect pilsners to look like. Smell is sweet, straw, lagery yeast, surprisingly mild.
Taste is sweet and crisp. Something a little corny about it, but it's German, so there shouldn't be. Straw again, less of the lagery yeast. Again, quite mild. I'd like something with more bitterness a little more.
Mouthfeel is actually kind of thick. Certainly not a light and dry as I think of with other pilsners. Overall, I'd take this over a BMC AAL any day.
The American bottle looks identical. Maybe slightly, slightly more carbonated. Smell is a little skunkier, but that could be can versus bottle. Taste is noticeably different. Again, more skunkiness in the American bottle; the German can is much sweeter. American bottle has the advantage of seeming crisper due to the extra bitterness.

330 ml. bottle. Pours a clear yellow colour, with a nosrmal head that does not hold for too long, leaving some lace. Smell of grass, malt and citrus. Medium body and good carbonation, crispy palate. Taste is bitter, with citrus, grass, grains and some malt. OK.
