Went down Ok with my bowl of noodles. Nothing to write home about. Not bad just quite underwhelming really. Meh.

I had this yesterday and I remember to be quite bland. Grainy nose with some Diacetyl as would be expected in a Czech Pilsener, but without any hops whatsoever. Did not like drinking it, but there were no apparent faults either.

Pours a perfectly clear golden colour with a billowy white head that settles to a tiny cap, leaving some lacing. They make it very clear on the label that this uses exclusively German malts and hops and by the look of it, they intend this beer to be 'by the book.'

It's quite sweet on the nose, with clean pils malts and no noticeable skunk or sulphur. There's also no noticeable hops, but it's still very appealing and to style.

I was a bit too nonchalant with my pour, and it seems there wasn't all that much carbonation to begin with because most of the carbonation is gone. For a 4.8% beer there's isn't as much body as I'd hoped, and it comes across as watered down. It's not unpleasant, just boring, and I wish it had some hop character to brighten it up. Bitterness however is in balance.

A great start that went absolutely nowhere. Commit to the style, add some hop character, make it crisp, and I think this could be quite a decent beer.

look: 2.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

Pours clear and gold with a fluffy white head.

Smells slightly malty

Taste- Not much there. Some malts and grain. A little bit of sweetness.

Mouthfeel- Light, a little watery.

Overall- Better than Hite, Cass, and Cafri thats for sure. Not great though.
