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.

Pours a bit darker than say Warsteiner, but is still nice and clear and well carbonated. Tasted a lot better than the first time I tried it . In a closed 12 pack with an April 2018 best by date this was very good.

Once again I see that a famous German import gets a low rating compared to what I think. But what do I know? We were drinking these as a big treat way before all the American Crafters exploded on the scene. So maybe I'm being sentimental.
