look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Bright light golden in color. Thin white head. Loads of carbonation, champagne like. Constant and consistent effervescence.

Smell: Slight hints of citrus but most of this beer’s nose is hops, big noble hops.

Taste: Sweet dry front turns dry in the middle and finishes with huge harsh noble hops. Great!

Mouthfeel: Fun and bubbly. Dry and ubergehopft!

Drinkability: Fantastik! Would be my light session beer of choice were it available in the states.

Beer number six during my 17th Jan 2014 visit to Berlin's Green Week, this beer was on-tap in the Hessen area: so I had a draught 0.3 litre glass poured for me.

Liked it, crisp and sharp taste.

Looked very good in it's lovely glass, golden, bright, clear and clean. A good white crown on top.

Hop front with a mild malt content to prevent the beer becoming too dry or bitter, although the finish is quite dry. Very refreshing and although not blessed with any great aroma or flavours it is a well made and good Pilsner.

Beer has a full golden color with a light head and good carbonation. Aroma was mixture of grain and hops. Taste was refreshing and a bit on the dry side. It finished with a smooth pleasant feeling. Great beer for more than one or to enjoy with friends.

I don't know what it is, but most of the beers that I got at a nearby quickmart today ahve been on flat side. This one poured with a large, foamy, frothy, fluffy white head that soon faded and some lace. Color is a clear yellow. Aroma is at first, skunk ( second whiff saw that waning), malt, and hop, plus some grain. Flavor's like aroma. Body is good, but a little on the flat side. Finish is short to medium in length and forgettavle.

half liter bottle poured into a pilsener glass. pours a light golden color with a couple fingers of tight white head.

aroma is of light malts, with notes of munich and a touch of caramel. a pleasant floral yeast rounds out the profile into a well proportioned aroma.

taste is more of the same with a solid profile and a note of grain. a rich and complex pils on the palate.

mouthfeel is light bodied with a smooth and slightly silky texture. finishes smooth with residual grain and a slick mouthfeel.

drinkability is good. this is an excellent pils with solid flavors and a rich profile. so many pils fall short of the richness here. prost!

Golden blond color, intense. Beautiful foam on the sides, a bit less beautiful on top.
Quite fresh smell, with a decent hop, with light citrus notes.
At the taste a lightly honeyed malt, and hop, light and fresh.
Balanced and drinkable, with malt and hop in good balance in the aftertaste too.
Quite pleasant.
