3.24/5  rDev +12.5%
look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Pours out a medium golden yellow in color. Head is white and foamy at the top. Retention is moderate with minimal lacing.
Picking up lots of grains and bread in the nose. Also getting light floral hops. A little better than i remember it.
The taste is of light grains and floral hops with a bit of honey like sweetness. Ends on a semi bitter not that lingers for a bit.
The mouthfeel is crisp and refreshing and well carbonated.

I am a little taken back. This beer isn't half bad. I would rate it a solid 3 at the very least. I see one guy reviewing from memory and a few others reviewing it as a German Pilsener instead of a Euro Pale Lager. Maybe that is the reason for the low score.

12 ounce bottle into lager glass; bottled on 1/3/2018, best before 1/2019. Pours crystal clear medium golden yellow color with a 1 finger dense and rocky white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of cracker, white bread, and lightly toasted biscuit; with light notes of honey, nuttiness, pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. A touch of skunky aromas that went away as it sat in the glass. Nice and pleasant aromas with pale malt and light earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of cracker, white bread, and lightly toasted biscuit; with light notes of honey, nuttiness, pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Mild herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of cracker, white bread, lightly toasted biscuit, light honey/nutty/pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness of pale malt and light earthy hop flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Fairly crisp/clean finishing. Perfectly clean on lager flavors, with zero fruity notes present. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5%. Overall this is a very good pale lager. All around nice robustness of pale malt and light earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink with the mildly bitter/drying finish. Very flavorful and never watery for the ABV. Very clean pils malt flavors, with light earthy hop balance. A very enjoyable and well made offering for the style.

Poured from 12-ounce bottle into a stemmed flute. Crystal clear pale golden colored body, with a couple fingers of evanescent white head. Aromas and flavors of light biscuity malt, grain, grass, straw, and tart apple, with floral overtones and a hint of skunkiness. A little sweetness on the palate, not at all overbearing. Finishes on the dry side with some pleasant bitterness and a touch of astringence. There is even a little alcohol warmth as the beer reaches cellar temperature. Don't make the mistake of passing on this because of the rather low rating. You might be pleasantly surprised.

Pours a clear light yellow with medium head.
Smell is sweet grain and slightly floral.
Taste is bready followed by a mildly grassy bitter finish.
Much maligned, but not as bad as the hype.

Working from memory, I had this beer from a bottle poured into a glass, the smell of this beer is what hit me first it was very skunky and I was not to crazy about it. It pours a clear yellow color with faint taste of hops and malt. Simply put there are much better German Pilsners in mu opinion and this beer just was not for me and I have no plans to re visit in the near future.

Gold colored beer with a rapidly fading head. I was lucky and got a non skunked bottle. It is a pretty decent beer in my opinion. I guess it all depends if your lucky enough not to get the skunked bottles.
