Poured into a pilsner a clear dull light to medium golden with a pretty well defined white head that left a few broken chunks of lace as it settled pretty quickly.Sweeter aromas with a mild crispness,more like a sweet cereal aroma more than anything.The sweet cereal grain notes are what you get mainly on the palate with just a light drying leafy hop note in the finish.Eh, pretty average but it goes well with food and is pretty drinkable in an average kind of way.

This beer is amazing in its ability to be neither great, nor bad. It's middle of the road, to the extreme. Imagine German Bud Light. Except with more mild/bitter hops, maybe saaz? Better dollar for dollar than BMC. apparently abv is 4.9, but seems lower as I just finished a sixxer and am not too buzzed.

Just tried this because it was available at Aldis on my grocery run and I had never tried it. Initially refreshing, nice and light. The aftertaste is a bit strange, almost soapy. I think the appearance was perfectly fine. Poured into a glass the head was light and foamy, not dense. Nothing to write home about but perfectly acceptable.

Purchased from Aldi's for 5.99 for a six pack of 11.2 oz brown bottles. After tax the price comes out to a total of $6.41, or $1.07 per bottle. Best-by-date on back of bottle. Imported from Germany.

Appearance is pale yellow, almost clear, with a foamy head 1 finger thick when poured into a weizen-shaped McDonald's glass. Head disappears rather quickly. The color is an extremely light gold, as if somebody spilled a few ounces of beer into a full glass of water.

Smell is practically nonexistent at first, but after some intense huffing, I could detect notes of grass and grains, not much else.

Taste is okay. Slight bread and apple notes, not much else I can detect. No skunk flavor, though, that's always a plus.

Mouthfeel is light, with little carbonation.

Overall, a tolerable and drinkable beer, mediocre in every imaginable category. However, just because it's imported from Germany, and just because it's got a cool German name, and just because it's relatively cheap, doesn't mean it's an excellent beer. This is a beer that you should always accept if offered one, but not a beer you should actively seek out, there's better beers to be found.

For the price, much better brews can be bought from any grocery store.

3.49/5  rDev +4.5%

500 ml can from LCBo for $2.05 CDN. Poured into a pint glass.

Appearance - Pale gold color with a tremendous 3 fingers of white frothy head. Some bubbles are present. The head lingers for a bit and retains its creamy and frothy appearance until it finally dissipates.

Smell - Light grassy and grainy notes. Not a whole lot else, but exactly what you hope for with beers in the style.

Taste - Clean, crisp, slightly sweet and quite floral tasting. Just enough bite and bitterness from the hops here to make it well balanced. Not a lot else going on but again these flavor combination is pretty good.

Mouthfeel - Light bodied and a bit watery but quite refreshing. Medium-low carbonation.

Overall - A good pils. But wish it was a little heavier bodied. Still one of the better ones out there.
