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.

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.

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?

05/09/12 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. A bit heavy on taste & texture. Some flavor which I can't place was a bit up front.
