3.03/5  rDev -21.7%

Appearance: Straw color; big, white head.
Smell: Some very light grass, hops
Taste: Overall fairly balanced between malts and hops; Starts with a slightly bitter, grassy taste but develops into a more level, perhaps biscuity ending.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium body. Medium carbonation, besides the big head; refreshing but lacks any kind of a “kick”. A rather oily aftertaste.
Drinkability: An OK, refreshing beer but it’s failed to impress me all 3 times I’ve drank it.

330ml bottle. Footed Pilsner glass. Enjoyed on jun´12. Pale straw color. White , rocky, crown shows good retention. Floral, mildy malt, aromas & piney touch. Crispy with subtle citric touch upfront. Clean earthy bitterness lingers into the finish balanced by moderate maltiness. Smooth palate. Light to medium body, lively carbonation.

Appearance: Crystal-clear light golden color, with a small white head, which fades rather quickly, with slight carbonation.

Aroma: Very clear with bread notes from pale malt, and subtle herbal hops.

Taste: Crisp, slightly tart pale malt, followed by moderately bitter herbal hops. Finishes with only a mild, lingering note of mild herbal hops.

Mouth feel: Smooth and full, pleasant.

Drinkability/notes: A well-crafted example of a classic, albeit bland style.

Many thanks to Max for hand-carrying this from Germany.

3.45/5  rDev -10.9%

Look: Pours a pale straw color, half inch head that lasts about a minute or two.
Smell: Grain, grass, very light citrus.
Taste: Well balanced and clean. Slight malty sweetness comes at the end with a mild hoppy bite. Very drinkable and refreshing.
Mouthfeel: Feels a little thicker than I had expected, but still crisp and light.
Overall: Its a tasty beer. I would buy it again for a hot day, but wouldn't search it out specifically.

Poured a crystal clear Light yellow from the bottle into a water glass. One inch white fluffy head with good retention, better retention than your avwrage pils.

That said, I'm really not a fan of pilsener, but this is one if the best I've tried. Very clean smell and flavor, exactly what one would want from the style. No aftertaste, fresh, crisp and refreshing. I would recommend this to anyone.
