500 ml can, $1.99 plus deposit at a BC Liquor Store.

When I was in university, one of my friends dated a German guy, studied German, and drank mainly German beer. I think this was the beer she drank the most. I had it a few times back then, but I haven't had it since.

A: Straw yellow, clear, some carbonation.

S: Lightly grassy, a bit metallic.

T: I was expecting a fairly generic lager taste. While this isn't awful, that generic lager taste would be an improvement. It's drinkable, but I'd never get it again. It's kind of watery, and there's something about it that reminds me a little of apple juice.

F: A bit watery, but the carbonation gives it a pleasant crispness at least.

O: I suppose there's a reason it was only $1.99.

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.
