I am happy with this...considering I got a 15 pack for seven and a half bucks.....date on cans is 5 months ago....so that explains the price. It tastes good though....a lot of flavor for a pilsner. Maybe cans have a longer shelf life, since no light gets in?????

Poured from a can into a pint glass. Pours light orange yellow with a small white head. Smells of sweet grain, slight corn. Tastes of adjunct grain and slight corn sweetness. Beer is light bodied, easy drinking, and a tad heavy carbonation. Overall, an average beer.

I picked up a 6-pack at Publix during a BOGO sale. It tastes like a session IPA. I enjoyed the taste. But if you’re expecting a typical German Pils, you’ll be disappointed.

Pours a completely clear gold with a white head. Smells of bread, caramel, light hops, and malt. Tastes of sweet white bread, malt, non-bitter hops, and light caramel. Medium-light body with medium carbonation. Overall an ok pils.

Not even CLOSE to a pilsner.

It's about as much of a pils as if you poured 2/3 of an IPA into 1/4 of a Coors Light. And nowhere near a "German style" pils.

Total disappointment.
