500 ml can. Clear light golden color with white head. Aroma has sourdough and fermented grains, some grassy hops as well. Taste is a bit acrid and grainy with almost no hop bitterness, just a hint on the aftertaste. Not really bad but neither good.

From Hipercor. In Bavaria glass. Can 50cl. Watching Los Soprano 5x05. Plenty of drinkability here. The body may be a bit thin and there may not be much taste, but it goes down the throat really quick and smoothly

Smooth pilsener with a slight "tang" at the finish. Large airy head and pale straw color with fine carbonation. Aroma is slightly sour and musty, but flavor has elements of straw and citrus. Just above average for this one.

I used to drink this beer for dinner 2 days a week over a 4 year period.
BY FAR, without question, my all time favorite Pilsner over many, many samples from around the world.
You can only get this beer locally from Mannheim Germany, and if you ever have a chance to visit, this is a must try for any Pilsner lover. The bottle is dark brown and has a green and white label with a picture of the Eichbaum tree.
Clean, crisp, perfectly hopped Pilsner with some type of flavor twist that comes from a local tree during the aging process. Light yellow in color, but can fool you as it is more medium bodied than most German Pilsners.
The head is mild and the carbonation is medium to high.
Best at cool temps around 40-45, and can be served at room temps also. The main thing about this beer is it tastes good during the first one, and still tastes good after 3 or 4... or 5.
It will not blow you away with flavor on the first drink, but over time you become addicted to it's alluring tree like hoppiness flavors.
I would pay alot of money to be able to get this beer in the US.

Intense yellow color, clean, white foam, creamy. Good appearance.
Intense herbal and grassy smell, bitterness and hay.
A light, but present malt in the taste, but the grassy hop prevails, with a dry and pleasant finish.
Short and dry aftertaste, for a good drinkability.
Thirst quenching, and pleasant.
