This was properly chilled. It was placed in the proper glass and was consumed during a bizarre Bears whooping of the Giants. Both were almost a waste of time. But as time progressed the Bears and the beer came into their own.
The appearance of this beer is typical--light straw. Also, it contained almost no foam whatsoever. The beer is visually boring on all accounts.
The smell was truly unfortunate as it carried the dreaded skunk spoiled smell. It definitely reminded me of a Heineken or Becks. However, the smell did dissipate as time progressed.
The taste was typical of a pills but sub par. It starts somewhat sweet and quickly finishes bitterly and sour. Honestly, I do not understand why people rate this higher. There are so many better beers in this category. To its credit, as time progressed it did improve, but barely.
Its mouthfeel is fine with a pure tightly carbonated bite that is enjoyable. Someone here said that it would be good to enjoy while mowing the law. That just about says it all.

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.
