Totally disappointing!
I bought this beer cause I didn't know it but it seemed to have very good marketing (it says "Best German Beer" on the package) so I reckoned I'd give it a try.
When I did drink it though I was bitterly disappointed.
It's your typical grey, monotonous whydidIpayforthis lager beer.
No better than Heinekein. When you pour it it looks promising, with not-so-persistent head and hardly any smell.
But when you do drink it you'll be left wondering whether they were drunk or just in bad (wicked) faith when they called it a good beer, not to mention the "best" beer in Germany.

Looking for a euro lager but you're tired of the funk and skunk of Heineken and Stella? Look no further. This one is a notch above.

Pours a really clear and really pale straw color, similar to a typical AAL and the like. Nothing special with the appearance. Smells fresh and bready, with a nice dose of hops for the style.
Tastes about the same, with a touch of honey and a clean finish. This beer is great in that it mostly tastes only of beer, as it should be!

I like it a lot, but the price point is a little high for what it is. That said, if you're in the habit of paying for Stella and the like this would be a pleasant alternative. A good beer.
