look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Appearance - Pours a semi-clear, golden straw color with a half finger of head. Sub-par retention, leaving a thin, broken layer of microbubbles on the surface.

Smell - Grain and dextrin sweetness.

Taste - Follows the nose; grain and malty, sugary sweetness. Passing note of grassy hop character in the aftertaste that really does nothing to balance the brew.

Mouthfeel - Medium in body, with a malty presence. Somewhat lively carbonation.

Overall - Malt forward, unbalanced brew. Not a good German Pils by any stretch of the imagination.

CAN my local, in-person trader, tone77, come through in a big way, or what?!? I unloaded his big box o' beer from the other night and I could not believe all of the CANs that he had unearthed in support of The CANQuest (TM)!

From the CAN: "Uncompromising quality"; "Exclusive aromatic hops"; "By appointment to the Royal Danish Court"; "Premium beer"; "Copenhagen 1847".

In a 500 ml tallboy CAN, no less! I Cracked it open and after marveling at its fullness, began a standard Glug, still resulting in a massive amount of dense, eggshell-white head with good retention. Color was a deep golden-yellow with NE-plus quality clarity, enabling me to see into the future. Tomorrow looks to be a nice day outside with me stuck inside for most of it and no beer to dull the pain. Nose smelled like lager, the pleasant kind, with a honey-like sweetness and just a kiss of hops, to borrow from an old advertising slogan. I am not taking the piss, either. I have been subjected to so many shite lagers in CANs over these last several years that I have come to really enjoy a simple, adjunct (read, corn)-free lager when one happens my way. Mouthfeel was soft, not quite creamy, but without the kind of forced carbonation that seems to want to scrub my tongue. The taste was mild and unassuming, slightly grassy, mildly sweet and much like everything that belonged to Baby Bear - just right. Finish was semi-dry and very refreshing. I CAN easily see myself hanging out in the backyard, grabbing some of these out of a cooler and making a day of it. I CANnot speak for it from a bottle, but out of a CAN, it was just the ticket as a nightcap.
