How cool is this; the label of this German Pilsener is picture of the Swedish king Gustaf II Adolf (wikipedia him), who kicked ass in the Thirty Years Wars in Germany.
A: Pour is clear golden with a massive large white compact creamy head that after slow dissipation sets into nice lacings.
S: Nettles, grain and lots of bitter hops. Semi-sweet malts.
T: Follows the nose but is a bit stonger in every aspect. Creamy smoothness from the malts and nice bitterness from the hops.
M: Aftertaste is long with a mild bitterness. Body is medium while carbonation is on the stronger side.
O: Well as a Swede I gotto love the pic of the Swedish king on the label, but putting that aside; a pretty darn nice German Pilsener.

Served from a bottle into a generic pilsner glass at an underground soup kitchen called "157 Untergrund" in Leipzig (don't ask). Reviewed from notes.
A: Pours a four finger head of below average thickness and retention. Devoid of cream. Colour is a clear pale yellow. So far so bad.
Sm: Clean barley with slight crystal hops. A light strength aroma.
T: A light barley body with mild crystal hops. A bit of cream on the climax. Cream surges to prominence in the finish thereafter. Simple and unrefreshing.
Mf: Too coarse - especially on the open - for a pilsner. Nicely wet but - as aforementioned - unrefreshing.
Dr: One euro in a soup kitchen is a bit steep (especially by German standards). She drinks easy, but severely lacks flavour.

This is easy to get on tap in Leipzig and the surroundings, but unfortunately it's a very average German pilsner. Smell is weak floral hops, but surprisingly the taste and mouthfeel are both too bitter--in the mineral sense, not really the hoppy sense--to make it a good pilsner, and it's certainly drinkable, but not desirable.
I would skip it next time I was in town.

Served out of an 16.9 Oz white can, with green, red and gold letters. Pours Crystal gold as expected. Thin white head does not stay for long, though leaves some lace. nice little bubbles.
The DMS aroma hits you first but clears into a grainy-earthy smell.
Where are the hops on the nose? not exist. maybe on the tongue.
Wrong again. Totally boring lager-like taste with fainted malt sweetness and a finish that sums up to nothing much. Light bodied and uninspired.
Look elsewhere for a true pils - this one left the hops behind
Serving type: can
