On tap at Ludwig's Garten in Philadelphia, PA on 1/5/08. Served in tall stange glass.
A - Clear golden body with very light carbonation and short, rocky white head that transformed into a whispy film. Not much lacing at all. Textbook pilsener appearance.
S - Grassy noble hops with grainy and bready malt aroma. I also sense a light aroma of sweet grapes and white wine that became more apparent as the liquid warmed up.
T - Pretty much tastes as it smells - grassy hops and grainy, bready light malt. Finishes almost like a white wine. This is about as crisp and clean as it gets! Finish is perfect. Exceptional balance of ingredients make this an exemplary representation of the German pilsener style.
M - Medium body with watery texture and dry, crisp finish. Nice and prickly on the tongue.
D - True classic German pilsener all the way. Exremely easy to drink. I am surprised by the low scores for this beer. Perhaps it is much better on tap.

Bottle poured into a glass
Golden color with no carbonation and a thin white foam cap. No lacings
Faint malt and more of hops aroma.
Light to medium light mouthfeel. Malt, hops and fresh beer yeast taste. Grassy. No aftertaste . Clean , crisp and quaffable. Classic pilsener beer taste. Would have another.

Classic pale yellow German Pilsner pour with a quickly fading head but decent lacing. Grassy, grainy nose was pretty typical for the style. Taste was much the same with a good amount of grassiness with a hint of a metal. Nice crisp dry bitterness made it very drinkable. Would make a great lawn mower beer. I enjoyed this a lot more than some of the previous reviews and will definitely seek it out next time I'm in Berlin. In fact, I'm wishing I had another right now...

12oz bottle into a glass.
A- Yellowish golden with hardly a cap from a hard pour, no lacing.
S- European hops, some grassy scents, maybe some lemons, malted barley, a simple nose from a simple style.
T- A bit better than anticipated, bright earthy hops give a grassy taste with a bit of grain in the back. A good amount of pale malt leaving for a rather sweet finish with some corn and a bit of bread.
M- Light and hardly carbed, this is smooth and goes down easy. The body is light and where it needs to be at. The grainy malty aftertaste lingers a bit than leaves just as quick. In and out.
D- On a hot day, a German Pils is what the doctor ordered, yet I still cant drink more than two without yearning for something else. They all pretty much taste the same no matter who brews it. The fresher the better.

Good head that lingers for some time. Bright golden colour.
Malty aroma with some hops. It has a very balanced taste between the sweetness from its maltand the bitterness from its hops. Bitterness lingers in the after taste. Faithful, actually a master recipe for its style.

A: Pours pale golden with a really large white head. Dissipation takes some time and leaves decent lacings.
S: Bready kind of sweet malt with some faint bitter hops and even fainter citric notes.
T: Sweet bready malt, light roasted. Bitter hops. I'm tasting floral hops, quite surprisingly a bit piney - very faint American stylee (I know there's no American hops in it, but still...).
M: Long nice aftertaste with a clean bitterness that lingers. Body is medium and the rich carbonation is smooth.
D: A German Pilsener that's weak in smell but otherwise a nice example of the style. Next time I'm in Germany I'm getting myself a case.

A-light golden color with a thin white head
S-bready with some slight bitter notes
T-crisp clean with some hoppiness, but not much of a lingering finish
M-light body with moderate carbonation
O-decent, but not special, OK with food, but not for savoring
