Light and refreshing. Good Pilsener. Tasty, with a flavor to toast malt.

Decent and fairly priced german pilsener. Crisp and easy to drink. Not too bitter. It's cheap so give it a try :-)

Clear golden colour, with a good head that fades soon, leaving a good lace. Smell of grains and hops. Medium to light body, fizzy carbonation. Taste of grains, some bitterness. Dull averge beer, but easy to drink.

-look is golden not clear slightly unfiltered looking
- smells is very mellow some earth and hop tones, bread
- taste is very smooth and some hop bitterness towards the end but not as crisp as others in this style
- kinda flat almost has a skunked feel...
- overall a good pilsner better than most made but not a winner for me

A: brilliant straw gold under a 1” sudsy white foam collar that grips the glass leaving thin sheets of lace.
S: Bread, a slight earthiness.
T: light bread leading to a moderate earthy hop bitterness on the finish.
F: Medium light body and medium carbonation.
O: A decent beer but other than the cute bottle, nothing really stands out to distinguish it.

This is a bier it is hard for me to be objective about. It was considered a local brew when I lived in Hamburg and introduced me to real German beer. It's fresh, crisp and has a nice blend of hop and malt. It's best no colder than 45f. I'm always happy to find it in Idaho.

330ml bottle from Beers of Europe website (£1.89):
This one was a very nice German pilsner, maybe not a definite classic but a good beer nonetheless and one well worth trying. With this being my first time trying it from a glass as apposed to from the bottle it was about as good as I remember. easy to drink and quite crisp at the end; a decent beer.
