HUGE thanks to my cousin for getting me a mixed six-pack for Christmas! Poured aggressively into a frosted beer mug, and served ice cold.
A: Pours a straw colored body that's sparkling clear. Due to the aggressive pour, the head was an amazingly tall, fluffy 4-finger eggshell white color, with plenty of lacing, but only decent retention.
S: Earthy aromatic hops with just a hint of tang to it, and luckily, no skunk. I'm beginning to wonder if I suck at smelling beers...
T: Very crisp tasting, with only a mild tangy hop bite on the middle and back ends. Some malt sweetness can be found at the front as well. A little simplistic, but man is it refreshing. I can detect a bit of skunkiness on the flavor profile, though, which hurts the score some.
M: Smooth and slick going down. It's not watery per se, but it drinks like water. Very good carbonation, without being overpowering.
O: Not a huge, huge fan of this, but it'll work in a pinch, or if I want something to wash down German cuisine with. I probably wouldn't buy it, simply because there's way too much else to try.

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.
