look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from the bomber into a tall Goose Island 312 weizen glass.

Pours golden straw yellow with a fluffy pure white head. Head drops down to a thin but resilient film across the beer's surface but sticks around. Lacing is impressive at first but not very resilient.

Nose is biscuity malt aromas with a hint of grassiness and a fleeting note of acerbic citrus.

Taste is very clean and straightforward. Much like the nose - biscuity malt, some grassiness. Very slight hints of sour lemon. Usually with a beer with this flavor profile I'm expecting off-flavors and the typical low-quality adjunct grain funk, but this is crisp and clean. Finish starts off with a surge of satisfying hop bitterness, followed by a palate clearing dryness and giving slight rise to a bitter herbal, hoppy aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is crisp and clean, fairly light bodied, but not a pushover. Carbonation is active and what you would expect from the style - part of why it is so drinkable and refreshing.

It's not a fancy, innovative beer nor is it a big brooding complex beer. It's simple, straightforward, but well-executed. Not the best pilsner out there, but it does it's job. I've been drinking a lot of sweet and fancy beers and winter seasonals lately. This is a nice, crisp and refreshing change of pace at the moment.

A nice German pilsener, pours a clear golden color, topped with a generous and slowly disappearing white head.
There is a pleasant mild malty aroma complemeted by some grains. Nothing special, but nice.
The taste starts slighty more on the sweet side and is followed by a nicely balanced body with some bitterness added. Finishes with a decent bittery feel, lasting for some time after.
A very drinkable and tasty pilsener. I also love to have one of these, whenever I can.

Poured it from bottle into Pilsner glass. Good head of over one inch, slight retention, leaving behind a little lace. Color is light yellow, clear with medium carbonation. First smell is bright floral. Medium mouthfeel, with balanced taste with slight bitterness and aftertaste. Overall a pleasant beer, nothing overwhelming but also nothing memorable.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

I love the taste; not too sweet or bitter, and it's an overall stronger flavor of course than American style lagers. I usually drink it straight from the bottle a little cooler than room temp. My only gripe is that under those conditions it nearly always overflows out of the top upon being opened. Foam may look good in the TV spots but when there's enough to shave with it's too much. Others may disagree. I prefer Bitburger but that's not available in my area.
