Like the graphic design of the cans. Very early 20c.

A: 4.25 Crystal clear golden straw with a tall, thick head.
S: 3.75 Aroma is light, but is classic pils malt with a modest hop scent.
T: 3.5 A bit disappointing flavor wise, because of the lack of flavor. Doesn't come close to matching the best German examples. Bitterness is medium-low, leave it somewhat sweet. Malt is likewise very light.
M: 3.75 easy drinking
O: 3.25 Just not that pleasant to drink. I love a good German pils. This Austrian example has no real flaws, except being very uninteresting.

Tall can pictured here poured into the available pint glass at a Calgary pub. A bright golden amber color with a decent dose of creamy white head, I get a pleasing, assertive but not aggressive aroma of fresh bread, grain husks, some fruity esters that almost grade into orange-like citrus, apple, and faint sulfur that recalls coconut flakes along with noble hop grassy and spice notes (dare I say cinnamon). Palate largely mirrors this, if a little more rough around the edges, some grain husk and darker than usual malts that almost enter nutty territory for a moment, a yogurt-like lactic tartness, slight vinous character, and a moderate degree of carbonation for the style. Nice body that has a bit more substance than the average macro-brewed pilsener. Finishes crisp but also rather bready. Nice hop aroma and flavor throughout. Quite a lot is going on here and this is one of my favorite continental pilseners, relatively easy to track down and with an almost ale-like fruitiness that makes it stand out from the pack.

A clear and very bright yellow gold, this pils develops an bone-white airy head to about half a finger that falls somewhat slowly to a layer on top that puts down a mixture of spotting and patching on the glass.
Leaf and grass have a very light peppery spiciness to it in the hops, balanced by a somewhat honey-like sweetness and some fruity esters that are a little more tart than I expect. Breadiness in the malts, not quite as dry as some, leads to a little bit of a graininess sliding in underneath before going more crackery, as expected. The hops bite a little stronger on the tongue than I think, which is a pleasant surprise.
It's crisp and creamy with a high carbonation and, interestingly, a bit too much to the medium body. It's clean up front, something building lightly but just.
