Good german pilsner. I had this a pub in London and it turned out to be a better alternative to what they had on tap. It had a nice deep golden color and generated a nice looking head in the bottle. The aroma is very distinct with hops. Great bitterness and just enough malt which tasted fairly rich for the quantity. It was a very good brew and make seek it out to drink again, if i can find it.

500 ml can from LCBO poured into a pint glass.
Appearance - Clear golden colour. 2 fingers of head, but dissapears quickly. Some carbonation appears to be evident based on the visible carbonation bubbles in the pint glass.
Smell - Light grassy notes but malts are a bit stronger here. There is also a funky metallic smell, that isn't strong but is there. Otherwise good smelling beer.
Taste - Clean and crisp, some vague hints of spicy flavors. Malty backbone as the bready and yeasty tastes move forward on the tongue. Nothing bad here, but nothing terrible inspiring.
Mouthfeel - decent mouthfeel, moderately rich in feel, but the thing that surprised me was the lack of carbonation in my mouth, especially considering much of its is visible. Was expecting more here honestly.
Overall - A decent German brew and used to be one of my favorites before I started to try many of the others in the style. Probably won't be buying this one again.
