German Pils. Smooth , easy drinking, sweet malt. Not a bad beer but I wouldn't seek it out

Format: a giant, plain white can (1L) which is always good. Bit tacky otherwise. Was a special that came with a DAB stein glass.

Appearance: poured out a clear light yellow with chunky carbonation across the profile. A one-finger white head fluffs up and lasts for quite some time before dropping to a creamy, thick cap. Looks pretty good.

Aroma: smells a bit better than your standard lager - grass hops with biscuit malts and a bready quality. Some cereal grain and earth.

Taste: follows the nose to the letter. Grass hops, biscuit malts, grain and earth. Quite a light flavour, but that's kind of what you want with a lager.

Aftertaste: the flavours fade pretty quickly, with a slight hop bitterness lasting.

Mouth feel: light- to-moderate in body with a moderate carbonation to bring the flavour through. Works pretty well.

Overall: not a bad lager at all. A bit better than your usual American Adjunct Lager for instance. Quite enjoyable in the 1L stein glass. Okay for AU$53 a case of 24 x 330mL.
