For a pilsner, you can't get much better than this. Full bodied mouth feel, touch of cream but crisp, clean finish. Don't have to wait for a hot day to drink. Solid on its own but great with food.

A: Crystal clear pale pale gold with a substantial head.
S: Pilsner malt aroma with a light floral hop scent.
T: Delicious bitterness up front, with earthy, vegetal hop taste. In reverse of aroma, it's the malt that comes across very light, with the hops the flavor to enjoy.
M: Light, well-carbonated.

Very good pils. There's been a new push towards session beers, but pils has always been the original great hoppy session beer.

Pale straw colour. Medium carbonation. Head fades quickly to healthy foam film and very good lacing is displayed.

Aroma is classic German pils with good herbal hops.

Taste is classic German herbal hop flavour with crisp biscuity light maltiness. The bitterness is high for the style with a lingering dry finish. Some mineral flavour is noticeably as if the water comes from a fine spring.

Overall a very good dry German pils. Similar to Bitburger. Really a good example of the style and a very dry and bitter, though subtle, pils.

For the price... this one is hard to beat!
@ $6.99 for a 4pk of Pint cans...
For a hot summer day by the grill - this is the go to beer!
I care for the taste and the finish wayyy better than the smell.
This is my first encounter with this particular brew. I like it better than Pilsner Urquell!
No attacks please!

Decent overall Pils. Good taste. Not too heavy. Good pour from the bottle. A very affordable, good drinking beer. Perfect for hot weather- enjoy at a cookout or a day on the gold course, or a day fishing.
Not bitter, light in color, good palatable Pils.
It's usually priced well, too- for the budget conscious consumer. Enjoy!

11.2 ounce bottle poured into pilsener flute glass

A - crystal clear light gold/straw in color, with a small one inch head, decent retention and lacing.

S - The smell is fairly weak, mostly grasses and grains

T - sweet malt taste with a crisp, dry, yeasty, but surprising bitter finish. But everything about this is fairly subtle. The Germans just make this style a little better than we do.

M - gold carbonation but not much aftertaste

O - a good example of the style!!!
