Basically a Heineken in a different bottle. Defiantly drinkable on a sunny afternoon.

On-tap @ Reichenbach Hall in New York, NY. Served in a 1 Liter Maß.

Pale gold, clear, with a big creamy white head. Fresh bready malt aroma with a nice balance of noble hops. Crisp and slightly sweet in its flavor, the balance is excellent with grassy noble hops showing enough strength to counteract the malt. Super clean and dry finish makes it easily to drink in large quantities.

Simple, yet full of flavor and very pleasant. This is drinking beer, my friends. Don't think too much about it, just let the lager consume you.

One of my favorites. Looks and smells great. Taste is classic German lager. My only gripe is with the feel which I think is a bit on the fizzy side. Overall you can't go wrong with this if you are looking for a classic beer that is easy to love.

A pretty boring pour: yellow and clear, a finger's worth of head. Very translucent with a lot of carbonation present. It left some sticky lace behind, but not much. After the head dissipated it left a little bubbly ring around the edges. The nose was a typical lager/pils ; grain, soda crackers, perhaps a little lemon. It tasted like white bread, malt, some crunchy crackers. The backend was dry with a balance of sweet. Very crisp and light mouthfeel; smooth. I liked it for a good summer lager! I'll smash a few of these, yo!
