A: Poured into a pint glass, this is a crystal clear pale straw colored beer with a dense, tall head, about 3/4ths of an inch.
S: Aroma is a bit disappointing. Putting my nose close to the class, I do get the appropriate pils malt aroma, with light noble hops.
T: Disappointing bitterness as well--fairly low, with little hop flavor. Malt is alright, but what's a German pils that just relies on malt?
M: average.

Disappointing pils. I've been in the mood for German pils lately, and I'd never tried this one before.

Poured from a bottle into a beer mug. Large white head with excellent retention. Golden amber color with a strong smell and taste of hops. The aftertaste is delightfully bitter. I bought this bottle as part of a build your own six pack deal, and I'm glad I did. It is an excellent beer.

This beer has a big tight head that stays around. Massive carbonation is streaming up with great vigour.

The aroma is a herbal hop smell typical of German pils. I detect mint and spring water in the smell.

The beer is highly drinkable. It tastes of noble hops and minerals with a mild but lingering bitter aftertaste.

The mouthfeel is like sparkling mineral water. Smooth but carbonated.

Overall, a mild but refined and delicious beer that would suffice as a standard example of a German pilsener. Very similar but not identical to Warsteiner and Bitburger.

My mark out of one hundred would be 87.
