Pours from a bottle a pale yellow, coarse bubbles, no head (though this probably due to the glass here at the airport buffet at Schiphol.
Aroma is Pilsner malt, not of the grainy kind and continental hop extract without depth
Taste is Pilsner malt with rather strong but unfortunately biting bitterness enhanced by its dry taste
Rather thin though carbonation comes in a balanced way
Northern German Pilsener that is typical but not great. Industrial Lager. Not too bad but also nothing interesting

Poured from a 330 cl brown bottle into a Samuel Adams Perfect Pint glass. Best by 06.23.15 stamped on back label. 12-pack purchased cold at Harris Teeter (Charlottesville, VA) for $14.49.

A: Crystal clear honey-gold with disappointing 1/2-finger stark white head hat dissipated quickly and leaves no lacing.

S: Clean crackery, grainy malt and grassy, noble hops with minerally quality

T: Great German pils flavor, clean and crisp, with slight grainy pale pilsner malt sweetness, not corny, which plays well off of the clean, grassy, spicy, and slightly floral moderate hop bitterness. There's a reason this a top example of the German pils style. Well-handled beer -- no skunkiness.

M: Very dry throughout, not a beer to drink for body, but slightly prickly carbonation enhances the dry finish.

O: Excellent beer which is inherently drinkable yet provides plenty of crackery maltiness, grasy hops bitterness, and the classic exquisitely dry finish. Comes off drier than Prima Pils but less hoppy - both are great.

05/22/12 Not a fav. I found a bit of a piney aftertaste. I prefer a cleaner mouth-feel & beyond.
