Half-liter bottle dated 27.04.08.
Vigorous pour yields two fingers of snowy head. Lots of bubbles rising. A thin, clear yellow. Great lacing down the sides of the glass even toward the second pour of the bottle.
Smell is grassy and skunky sweet. Herbal quality to the hoppiness as well. Aroma erupted the second I popped the cap.
I expected a funky taste from the smell, but it is quite clean. A small taste profile in general, few off-notes, just grassy hops with very balanced malt providing grainy flavor and sweetness.
Mouthfeel is smooth, gentle, rich. The bubbles tickle the tongue... perfectly moderated carbonation.
Very enjoyable, I wouldn't mind drinking this again, and $1.89 for a 17 oz single wasn't that pricey. It's on the sweeter side vs. sharp hops, if that bothers you then find another pils.

330ml bottle into a snifter.
beautiful golden color pour with a great 2 finger head. smell is extremely crisp and malty and refreshing...nice! taste though not so much. a bit bland. noble hops are a bit muted. just average all.around , though drinkable for sure. light body with mild carbonation.
overall an average pils. not bad.

Tried on tap at Beer Revolution in Calgary, a classic lager start to the evening. I have also tried this in bottles. Classic German pilsener in the glass, a gold straw color with a smattering of white foam on top. Aroma was quite subdued, I do not possess the world's greatest olfactory sense but I can usually get more than this, especially from something on tap ... Faint cracker malts and musty hay-like noble hops on the nose, and more of the same on the palate. Fortunately I could taste more than I could smell, the aforementioned noble hops were prominent and fairly enjoyable, fresh grass and hay playing off some herbal notes like mild licorice and bitter watermelon rind. There is a grainy cracker-like malt backbone with hints of green grape fruitiness and a grain husk astringency. Aggressive carbonation along with a little metallic copper afterburn. Crisp and dry with less residual sweetness, DMS, and doughy character than most commercial Euro lagers. A decent noble hops showcase on tap (less fresh in the bottles I've sampled) and a pretty standard German pilsener for the purists, albeit one with a macro-brewed feel: Fizzy, harsh, and rather vapid.
Serving type: on-tap
