I had this at Chicago Brauhaus, seated right next to the owner, which did not color my review on bit. There's it's served on tap, perfectly. And it tasted like the gold standard of beer, clean, light, subtly balanced, absurdly drinkable.

You can talk talk talk, but these Germans don't play when it comes to beer. Everything I had there, including this beer was 4.5+.

All good.

Overall it is... alright. The initial smell and taste were bitter, but after one drink it got better. The appearance, smell and taste were all ultimately average, with nothing really special to note. Really it was not bad, and not really great - just beer. I couldn't help think of Hugo Stiglitz every time I saw the name of the beer, which made for a fun time :-)

Served from a Weizen glass.

Has a very pale color. Huge head after pouring but doesn't stay for too long. Leaves almost no lace. Just a few bubbles rising now and then.
Has a pretty strong and malty smell.
Standard lager taste. I find the aftertaste more interesting, hoppy and quite bitter for a pilsner.
Body feels light to medium, crisp and refreshing. It leaves your mouth dry and makes you want another sip.

Overall this beer is not outstanding in any way but it isn't bad either.
