A GREAT beer. A crisp, full flavored pilsner, that is one of the best beers ever (if you are a german pilsner fan). I'd rate it higher except maybe some day there will be another beer better. I had this in a bottle several years ago and did not like it. Had it recently on tap and it was wonderful, so I picked up a six pack to try it in the bottle. Just as good!
The moral of this story is to try a beer more than once- that first bottle may have been really old- or my taste buds off.
I can't account for other reviews that are not stellar; other than to think that those reviewers do not like pilsners. After almost 50 years of beer drinking, I think I can say that the current trend of overly hopped ales will pass, and good pilsners (which is harder to make- you can't cover things up with more hops) will become more appreciated.
