For a lager this is some top stuff. I have no idea what others are talking about when they badmouth it. Thia beer is light but with a light spiceyness to it. Nice light hop taste to it too. Perfect for these spring days. Very drinkable with a medium/light mouthfeel that is very hydrating and refreshing. Cheers!

DO NOT BUY.
DO NOT DRINK
unless you enjoy drinking your own urine. I was tempted to buy this because of the price and my current financial situation dictated that it might work out with in my budget.
What a mistake...

No need to do all that fancy review $*@!

Poured 2 12 oz bottles hard into a 27 oz Stein (why the heck not!) and this brew has some cumulonimbusly fluffy head about an inch over the top and half an inch into the stein! Its a beautiful amber color that really looks like organic Maple syrup.
Its smell opens up with a lager and moves to a very biscuity note while at the same time it smells very much like a pilsner.
The taste starts off with all that biscuit smoothes into the pilsner and bitterness after you swallow and mellowing into a nice stickyness
The mouth feel was a little on the flat side most likely due to my "Hard pour". Not to sticky not to sweet just right!

Over all a great beer at 2/3 the price of other micro 24 packs! I rated it for the value and quality of the product! Gordon Biersch did a great job on this one.
