Bought a bottle at the Hesse Shop at Frankfurt airport in a gift set with porcelain mug and coaster. Poured into said mug, slight head and nice orange appearance. Not much of an aroma but subtle taste of bananas and malt. I could drink this all day, great session beer. Not that heavy, good balance of heat, malt and hops. I drank a lot of good beers in Germany (Stuttgart and Frankfurt areas) this week and this is one I would stock in my fridge for everyday drinking or tailgating at the Commerzbank Arena watching Die Adler. Good, solid ale.

I live in Germany and living in the Frankfurt area, this beer is very common. If you see a group of rowdy 50 year olds at a tram stop in Frankfurt, a good bet is a least a couple of them are drinking this.

Poured from a 0.33 liter bottle into a tapered pilsner glass. Body is crystal clear with a straw to pale gold color, white head, little lacing. Aroma is not big, maybe a hops and grain. Taste is dry, good bitterness, not overly carbonated, bitterness lingers. Feel is what you expect in a pilsner, I would call it crisp.

Overall, nothing special. One of the better German Pilsners in my limited experience. I like the bitterness and for an evening after work beer - it is simple and refreshing.

Had on tap in Frankfurt on two different occasions and places. Let me say immediately, that I love German beers, pils, hells, dunkels, Weiss etc - but this must be my least favourite German brew. Tastes just like Heineken to me, very thin, over carbonated, acid after taste, no body or malt characteristics and not a patch on ANY Bavarian Pilsner or Hell. Very disappointing, but there again Frankfurt region is not known for beer, its Apple type cider which is the popular drink in this region.

I guess on a very hot summers day and served very cold (which this was) it could be considered refreshing, but as far as I am concerned you might as well drink Bud, Miller or Heineken!

There are hundreds of far superior beers in Germany to this.

A - Crystal, almost lens-like, clarity on a light gold body. Creamy white foam pours 2 fingers high with great lace and retention.

S - Simple nose. Dry, dusty lemon. Corn meal. Maybe a little Champaign.

T - True to style. Fresh white bread, soft lemon, edge of pithy bitterness.

M - Soft, medium-light frame. Brisk and refreshing carbonation.

O - A great session pils. Nice bready backbone with great drinkability.

The tried-and-true taste of classic German lagers is alive and well in Binding's fresh, light, and dry pilsner.

As expected, the beer beer opens with a bright straw coloration, high effervescence and a pillowy white foam that caps the beer from the beginning of the session 'til the end. Light lacing displays on the glass and gives a glimpse into the quality of the beer.

Herbal, hay, grain, and floral character are on full display in the aromatic profile. Fresh baking bread, light yeast and sulfur meld wonderfully as the hoppy notes of fresh lemongrass and botanicals offer light floral tones and make the beer appetizing.

Bready malts start the taste with a mix of crisp dryness to start and finish, but with doughy richness in the middle. The balance of hops start soft and flowery with notions of honeysuckle, but then develop into a grassy taste before finishing bitterly dry. Mild sulfury notes of match sticks allow flavors of apple and lemon to penetrate the hop flavors and give an added element of complexity throughout.

Very dry, crisp, and refreshing from start to finish, the light body and sprite carbonation really crispens the beer and allows the hop bitterness and accompanying dryness to take full command in finish. With just enough residual malt texture to keep the beer properly supported, the dialogue is all about the balance of malt to hops.

Satisfying enough as the beer is proper, stern, and clean. But even as the beer is brewed correctly, there's very little to celebrate or criticize.
