3.88/5  rDev +9.6%

Poured from the tap to a pils glass the liquid is gold clear and full of great carbonation. The head it tall and thick, lasting quite a while like a whipped cream topping.

The smell is crisp clean hops over a semi sweet white bread malt.

The taste follows, a nice crunchy bread crust followed by a refreshing crisp hop finish.

The mouthfeel is nice, good crisp carbonation and good medium body.

The drinkability is good this is a fine example of a fresh German pils.

Prosit, MK

It has a grassy aroma with some mild citrus hop tones. The flavor is mainly grainy and cereal like with some tones of corn. Its appearance was on par for a pils. Thin transparent yellow body with the normal amount of carbonation. There was a pure white two fingers of he and just a little bit of lacing.

Found in a Moscow grocery store, this brew's immediate distinction is the serpentine neck on the green 33cl bottle. The label is silver and black, with the slogan "because we felt like it" below the name. Purity law applies. Best before Feb. 2005, I opened it on 12/20/04.

Pours an unremarkable clear gold under a 1 finger white head that lingers a bit but is rather runny and incapable of generating any lace. The nose is full of malt, a bit musty perhaps but not at all unpleasant or inappropriate for the style. The mouth is very prickly and fairly light. Sweet malt fills the opening taste, almost bread-like chewiness in the mouth. There are definitely hops here, too, with a good crisp bite following the sweeter opening. The malt never disappears, however, leaving a bready grainy finish. A touch of bitterness in the aftertaste rounds out the experience. While rather unimaginative, it is a solid representative of the style.

**My cousin sent this to me from Germany**

Appearance- Poured a golden straw color with a thin white head that disappears quickly.

Smell- Smells like a macro beer with hints of citrus.

Taste- Tastes like a pilsner. Has hints of hops but not much.

Mouthfeel- Light body and very carbonated.

Drinkability- Not too bad. This wasn't the best beer though. I wouldn't drink it on a regular basis.

I've been resold on this beer. My original review of this beer was such a bad review for the beer that what I've tried recently makes me wonder if I'm drinking the same beer.

Appearance wise this brew has it all. Nice mounds of fluffy white head, with a light gold and clear body.

Aroma qualities are actually hop dominant: lemony Hallertau. There is a slight new mown hay fragrance too.

The taste is also lemony, with a hint of cereal grain. Truly well balanced and not boring at all.

I could drink this beer and never get bored of it. I feel I either misjudged this beer initially, or got a spoiled batch. None the less, I'm sold on this brew!

3.5/5  rDev -1.1%

A- Pours from the unique looking bottle with a thin white head, which quickly evaporates, revealing a mildly carbonated, pale yellow body.

S- Smells of pale malts and corn, kissed with German noble hops. Slightly sweet smelling, with an undertone of huskiness.

T- The pale malts and corn flavors come through as expected along with the huskiness, mild noble hop flavor, and the introduction of a mild (pleasant) DMS. The finish is an brief echo of the characteristics detailed above.

M- A medium body, which is surprisingly big for this style; a mild soft carbonation; and no astringency.

Overall- This is a very drinkable pilsener, one that I would definitely reach for again.

Germany

3.9/5  rDev +10.2%

A -This bier poured with a nice 1 finger white head with good retention through out the glass. The body had a clear golden appearance.

S- As soon as you open the beer and start pouring your sense of smell is dominated with the strong hops fragrance.

T/M - Crisp, Zesty, refreshing, little after taste

D - Nice clean beer that you can drink at any event.

Bought this beer in a getrankemarkt near Heidelberg.
20 x .5 liter uniquely shaped bottles in an open plastic rack.

I was extremely thirsty so I gulped it from the bottle, which has a kind of corkscrew shape.

The smell was citrus and grain.

The taste was a great mixture of grain and noble hops, ending crisply and entirely refreshing.

The carbonation is on the heavy side and welcome.

I could drink this beer on any occasion.

This is a great beer but not the best that I can find in this style at the same price here in Germany.

This beers most interesting thing about it was...the green, curvy necked bottle. It was a bit cold when served, so had a bit of a chill haze at first. I ended up with a golden beer, topped with a fluffy white head. Nice biscuit aroma. The taste however was rather plain, my notes say slightly sweet, with absolutely no aftertaste. Not a big beer by any means. Uses hop extracts.

2.85/5  rDev -19.5%

half liter on tap poured into mug in heidelberg, germany. pours a light golden color with a single finger of tight white head that lasts for a couple minutes.

aroma consists of very subtle sweet malts with a bit of floral yeast mixed in. well proportioned, but could use a bit more character.

taste is of mild pale and munich malts with a floral yeast base. still subtle, but concentrated enough to provide a decent character.

mouthfeel is light bodied, with a lightly creamy texture.

drinkability is good. this is a subtle brew that could use a bit more character. there are much better pils out there.

For a description of this beer I refer you to the BA description of German Pilsner.
It fits it to a tee.
I drank it on another depressingly hot day , with the threat of bushfires still around.
It was a pure delight .Crisp and refreshingly refreshing.(ie good)
The odd thing is that it has nothing particularly remarkable about it. It sort of goes about its beery busy of being very drinkable.Descriptive words failed me.
Not the least of interest is the off set cork screw neck.
