4.02/5  rDev +18.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours a pale straw color leaving a thin dense white head. touch of lacing.

Aroma: It's subtle, but refined. Sharp, grassy, biscuits, honey, cheerios.

Taste: Starts with a nice grainy, biscuity malt sweetness, then is quenched by a moderate dose of grassy/herbal hops. Overall flavor is a tad on the light side, like the aroma.

Mouthfeel: Medium mouthfeel with moderate carboanation

Drinkability: High. This beer is incredibly drinkable due to it's slightly lighter flavor. It's still delicious though, but it's a pils that won't leave you thinking about it afterwards, it's just nice and enjoyable while you have it. Worth a shot if you're in the mood for a sessionable pils.

Ahhh...I love hunting for north German pilseners, and this one was a good find.

Appearance: A very clean, pale gold color. Nicely carbonated.
Smell: Summer personified! faint cut grass, lightly aromatic hop aromas.
Taste: A nice pale malty sweetness up front, balanced well in the middle, and finished bitter and fairly dry. Very nice.
Mouthfeel: In two words: properly balanced. The interplay between the sweet and dry is sublime. This would pair nicely with a dish of fried North Sea cod and roasted potatoes.

Is this the best beer from Germany I've had? No. Is this simply a well-made German pilsener that doesn't pretend to be anything extraordinary? Yes. It's hard to explain, but I get the feeling that when the brewers produced this beer, they didn't have a particular export market in mind, they simply stuck to their original recipe and shipped it afterwards. Nice job, folks!

A very drinkable pils, it was really a pleasure to consume. However, I do feel like there should be something more here. As a drinker of Pennsylvania pilsners offered by Victory and Sly Fox, I am expecting more when I buy a case from Europe. The hops here offer a ghostly hint of what could be.

As it is though, it is a lawnmower beer, but also an authentic German beer at a good price.

If you are bored of your local step above the mass produced (Yuengling in my case) this is an A+ choice as an affordable alternative, just expect a good beer, not something to knock your socks off.
