Pours a very pale straw, with good clarity. Bubbly three finger head with excellent retention that leaves nice spiderweb lacing. Citrus hop nose, and a faint munich malt aroma. Weak malt flavor, and dissapointing hops that seem to turn sour. Flat carbonation and thin body that finish clean, and boring. Nothing unpleasent, but it lacks the crisp mouthfeel and zesty hop character that make a pilsener appealing.

This randomly showed up in a local market today where it had never been before. I"ve never even heard of this beer after two years in Europe. It comes in six packs of silver and blue 330ml cans, not overly inspiring but enough of a curiosity to give a shot. The can has a freshness date on the bottom and writing in several languages on the side.
Light golden color without a lasting head. Smells faintly of sugar but barely there at all.
I wonder if this beer is new or just getting established mainstream because it tastes pretty good. Full flavor with crisp hop finish and agreeable, less carbonated, texture.
The taste saves this beer from being labeled mediocre and rises it to the level of pretty good. I'll keep an eye out for it again.

This was only 0.29 Euros at the beverage store and was the least expensive beer I drank in Germany this month. Light to medium golden when poured, fluffy white head is the result. It had a clean fresh aroma, with good carbonation. Mouthfeel was medium. Good bargain for the money, standard non-offensive pils brewed with hop extracts.
