Poured from my trusty 12 fl oz (355 ml) bottle into a tulip glass.

I've wondered for the longest time if the cheapest beer from Germany is far superior to the cheapest U.S. beer. So far, Yes, Yeah and Hell Yah. Pours a very light sunshine yellow (almost like that of a wine spritzer), with an OK head. The nose is light, airy, mild floral, hops and grass; Nothing at all overpowering. A nice taste of lemon and grapefruit and I do detect a white wine spritzer, but GOOD white wine, that is, along with a bit of the buttery and corn at the finish. It's an OK, no frills, brew: The type that's economically prepared and probable high-risk to skunkiness. This is a decent pilsner: Nothing fancy, but nothing bad either. And dirt cheap! My supermarket (Pathmark) is selling this stuff 10 for $10 ($1 a 500ml can). That's cheaper than a can of Coke! A Decent, Refreshing, German Pilsner.

6/15...pours bright gold, very little foam remains. Light pils nose. Light citrus tinged pils flavor. Lemon pokes through at the end. Clean. Needs more bite. But otherwise clean crisp pils.

Cheap pint can, canned Dec/14 best by Mar/16. Clear gold with thick soapy white head, settles slowly with a light spray of lace down the glass. Smell: lightly bready and floral, grape. Taste: white grape, white nectarine, spicy, a little biscuit, lightly grassy. Sweet tea feel to the finish, not crisp but with decent bitterness. Decent.

Poured from 500ml can into 10oz goblet. Poured a very lightly hazy yellow-gold color with about 1/4 inch of white head that had low retention and lacing.

The aroma was mostly grainy, slightly sweet, with some soft, earthy hops in the background. The taste was the same, with the hops having a bit of a brighter presence.

The body was crisp and clean, with a dry finish. Drinkability was very good. Overall, a pretty nice brew, well worth the $2 i spent on it, and a great option for a dog-walking brew. Worth trying if you see it.
