APPEARANCE: pale straw colour and translucent. thin white head with medium-low retention. TASTE: clean lager flavour with mild sweet cereal notes. low bitterness with a semi-dry finish. PALATE: thin body with low carbonation. OVERALL: an average bulk german lager.

Tall half-litre bottle: BBD 15 Feb 14. Bought in a local cheap supermarket (B&M) and poured into an embossed 'Cobra' pint glass at home on 18 Dec 13.

Pale golden, bright and clear, very clean looking: on top a large white foaming head.

A hop bite to the initial taste, some hop esters in the smell, grains also. Better than a lot of the 'mainstream' German lager/pilsners in both aroma and taste. Once into it you realise It is sweeter than a lot of the well known German beers in this style, which is maybe why I've enjoyed it so (my sweet tooth coming through again).

Refreshing and somehow wholesome in it's make-up. Evokes memories of happy times in Nurnberg and Germany in general.

A 500ml bottle with a BB of Feb 2014. Acquired a little while back from my local B&M. The bottle says Pils on the front label, and states that this beer is 'Kaltgehopft'.

Poured into a tulip pint glass. A clear golden hue with medium carbonation. Yields a large head of creamy white foam that lasts for a couple of minutes before subsiding. Aroma of grassy, spicy hops with hints of light malt, pepper and faint fruitiness. More depth than the average macro lager.

Tastes of light malt and leafy hops, with a crisp bitter finish. Notes of grass/hay, subtle spice, mild grain, earthy yeast, a faint fruitiness and a hint of stewed hops. Dry, followed by a piquant bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth and tingly, with peppery hop oils stimulating the palate. Good body for the style, but a shade undercarbonated. Mildly astringent, accompanied by an aftertaste of leafy, grassy hops, yeast esters and faint malt.

Rather nice - a tasty German pils and probably the best bottled version I've encountered over here. Looks good, while the aroma and flavour have a delicate hop character that suits the style perfectly. Decent body; could be more effervescent. The dry-hopping has a discernible impact on the flavour. Goes down all too easily - worth sampling if you come across it.
