This was a fairly light beer, typical of a Pilsner. It has a fair amount of carbonation. Taste is a mix of bitter with slight fruity overtones. It's a neat mix, really. It's a bit light for me, but enjoyable overall.

This beer has grown on me and has become a staple in my home. Its severely underrated here in australia and 24 cans will cost around $33 in comparison, the locally made, mass produced stuff costs $10 more and tastes 10 x worse.
It actually sits well on the pallette and leaves quite a nice after taste.

Pale, crystal-clear yellow body with very fine, slow-rising carbonation and thick, rich, fluffy white head. Crisp, bright, mild cracker and light bread malt aroma with a grassy hop aroma. Lightly toasted bread crust flavor; mild honey tones; hay; soft hop bitterness. Medium-light body; soft and smooth mouthfeel; crisp and dry.

A very satisfying pilsner that delivers subtle yet satisfying flavors with a smooth, light-bodied texture on the palate. Sublimely balanced between a delicate graininess and finely-tuned hop bitterness. Light and refreshing.

Poured into a beer jar from a can. Best by date: 1/2015

Appearance-straw color; yellowish and light gold; poured a 1-finger head that turned into a white bubbly surface; a few lines of lace down the sides; carbonation present. Could see some very small floaties, perhaps the beer was not filtered, which is a good thing. I'm positive my glass was clean so I don't think the floaties were from my glass.

Smell-grains; metallic malt; grassy notes; a very slight herbal hop presence, but not much; peppers and light spice. Smelled like a pils.

Taste-Sweet malt going in; dry, slightly bitter, and peppery aftertaste. Grains and barley malt in the front and backend. Fairly balanced. It reminded of a Czech pils style because of the peppery/grassy Saaz hop flavor in the aftertaste. I enjoyed it.

Mouthfeel-on the light bodied side; fairly smooth and crisp; carbonation on the medium side. Refreshing.

Overall, I really thought it was a solid good. I have tried Kaiserdom's other offerings, which are also pretty good, and this one is pretty decent too. Is it great, no. Drinkable, yes highly. In fact, I could drink a few of these, no problem. It beats drinking the ubiquitous big 3 Chinese beers: Tsingtao, Yanjing, and Harbin beer up here in Northeast China. It is good to know Kaiserdom exports its beers to an obscure market such as this one in North China. Cheers!

The appearance of this stuff is a disappointment.... there's almost no colour at all. The clean white head doesn't hang around for long. There's a constant stream of bubbles from the bottom of the glass.

Never mind, it smells good, there's some decent hop aroma, a little bit grassy.

The taste is dominated by the hop bitterness, which is really very strong. Once I got used to that, it's certainly quite more-ish.

I thought this would make a good session beer, I could probably drink it all night. Not a great beer by any means, but perfectly passable. Not as good as the others from the same brewery.
