Medium gold in colour with lots of carbonation. Aromas begin with sulfur, then eventually reveal some honey malt and grassy hop notes. Some grassy and spicy hop flavor notes are there, along with some more light malt notes on the back end. Its got a bitter soapy finish too, which isn't as clean as I'd like. Slightly below average for the style.

Bland pils but creamy mouthfeel as a pils ought to have. OK with overpowering strong meat. Fizzy, bit of malt and bitter hops altogether. Metalic residue yet from bottle and not can. Lace remains. Difficult to finish quickly.
most popular beer in Germany they told us?

Bottle offered to me at a dinner party in Germany.
A: Pours a clear straw yellow with a head that quickly fades
S: Smells like cereal
T: Not too strong a taste, not too offensive, not bad for a pilsner.
M: Light carbanation, light feel
D: Easy to drink, I could have a few of these.

When I opened the bottle I immediately thought 'damn, my first skunked beer in Germany'. Luckily, that was not the case. Nevertheless it made me very reluctant to take that first sip. When I did I was relieved that it was still 'good'. Color is pale and has the color of urine the morning after a hard night's drinking. Not something that makes you go yum. Taste is drinkable. Its nothing great nothing bad--a perfect 3. Herby flavors are there along with a dominate but lightly bitter hop profile. Mouthfeel is comparable to memories of American macro-lagers and not of any German Pils ive had before.

Poured from 11.2 ounce bottle to pilsener glass
A - clear bright gold with fluffy white head that dissipated quickly, but left respectable lacing
S - slightly fruity aroma which seemed a bit surprising, but not bad
T - no bitterness; malt sweetness was the most prevalent/powerful characteristic
M - little zip from carbonation; sticky finish
O - beer was good and an enjoyable, easy drinker
I picked this one up as a mixed-sixer to sample a brew that I first had on a trip Germany. It was a pleasant trip down memory lane, and a decent brew, but nothing outstanding.

330ml bottle. Footed Pilsner glass. Golden color, clear appearance, headed by white close crown. Slight honey & citric aromas & slight sulfur notes. Grainy & pale malty upfront followed by earthy bitterness. Light body. Moderate to high carbonation. Watery texture. Clean, slight harsh, bitterness & light metallic hues in the middle resolves in a long bitter finish. Refreshing & very easy drinkability.

Aroma has strong shot of fresh hops initially, and the sweet/sour quality of many of this style. Slight malt quality.
Huge full white head with decent stability. Water clear with gold color.
Intial taste is fresh malt, slightly sweet. Middle starts to take on bitterness,which increases to dominate with a long somewhat dry finish. Long bitter lingering on the tongue.
Fairly thin, somewhat watery. Has a refeshing quality and mildly crisp.
I really liked the initial flavour. But ultimately the bitterness to the exclusion of malt didn't allow enough balance to make it pleasing throughout.

adhering to the Reinheitsgebot
A: A very bright, caramel to hay color with spritely bubbles and a robust head
S: Grains and yeasts followed, slowly, by a malt or two.
T: For sure a pilsner with a very pilsnery, pils pop. She starts with that bitter and carbonation then lager yeast, grain and a lingering grassy coating.
M: harsh and dry
O: Like taking a yeasty roll in the hay this Pils embodies that simmering hot summer day when you were too stupid, too poor and too sweaty to linger in the beer isle. The problem with his beer boys and girls is that as soon as the chill haze wears off, so does the delightful bitter carbonated refreshment that first excites you. Not unlike young love, this beer is good for a quick July night under the stars, just make sure that there is plenty of ice in the cooler and a more then one.
