From a 500 ml flip-top bottle consumed in Nurnberg, on to the beer:

It's a pale gold color with a clean body, a soapy yet fluffy head, and stringy lace clinging around the glass. The nose of grass and hay are nice, though are mannered in a mild intensity. The bite of fresh grass hits the palate first, which then gives the opportunity for a green apple note to kiss. A touch of citrus and hint of vague vegetables rounds the taste. The body is light-medium, closer to medium, with gentle crispness, finishing out this good pilsner.

Bottle poured into a Sam Adams glass

Poured a nice frothy two finger foam cap that settled down with considerable lacings on the glass. Deep golden color with tiny bubbles.

Faint sweet aroma, almost like honey.

Nice , light mouth feel. Clean taste with a hint of sweetness. Mild hop and malt taste. Pleasant beer , very drinkable and refreshing. Would have again but wouldn't go far out of my way to buy just one. Good beer for the price.

Poured into a pint.

A - A translucent straw yellow with a big, three-finger pale head. Soapy lacing left behind. Good retention.

S - Grain sweetness, light fruit and grass. Took some effort to detect all of them.

T - Few hops, clean and crisp throughout. Far from bold.

M - Light+ bodied, fairly dry on the finish. As far as the style, far from poor.

O - I really do not care for pilseners in general. This does a few things pretty well, without making any major mistakes. I would not return to it, although I cannot name any pils I would buy again!

Pours a hazy golden yellow color with a two finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Large streaks and chunks of soapy lacing left behind.

Slightly earthy aroma with spicy hops, grass and straw countered by bready yeast, light fruit and pale malt. Some sticky pine needle followed by some apple, pear and pilsner malt.

Medium bodied with a crisp, spicy hop bite that lingers over the sweeter notes and pale malts into a dry finish. A decent amount of dry, earthy bitterness that dominates the flavor. Hints of grass and straw countered by some light fruit, bread, biscuit and pilsner malt. There's a subtle metallic presence that lingers after the finish hurting the drinkability a bit. A bit hopper than expected but pretty standard.

0.4 Litre served in a Pils flute. Large thick head, light golden colour, clear. Nice noble hop smell. Taste was on the sweet side for a Pils, had notes of fruit which reminded me of gummi bears. Smooth with a bit of fiz. Overall a nice refreshing Pils, easy to drink and decent value for money.

Poured from a 16.9 oz bottle into a Paulaner Weisbier glass, served chilled.

Slightly hazy lemon gold with cotton ball whitte head,nice lacing.

Slightly citrusy, grassy, sour, peppery. Nice.

Mouthfeel: slightly flat

taste: Doesn't taste attenuated like a lager should, do I detect a little diacetyl?

Notes: How old is this beer? There is a freshness date of 16/09 on it. Is this 3 years old or does that mean to drink by 2016? This one is off, drainpour.
