Poured from 12oz bottlw into standard Pint glass.

L: Clear straw yellow, half finger white head has decent retention and sticks to the glass well.

S: Grainy, slightly bready, herbal hops are subdued.

T: Again grainy and slightly bready but the herbal hops are more prevalent here and it’s nice.

F: Light, crisp, lingering herbal hop note.

O: Not a bad Pilsener.

A 500ml bottle with a BB of Jan 2018. Acquired recently from a webshop. While the label is in German it seems to relate the story of this once being the 'table beer' of German royalty.

A: Poured into a tulip pint glass. A bright golden colour with excellent clarity and good carbonation. Produces a large head of creamy white foam that lasts for a few minutes before reducing to a patchy surface layer. Slight lacing.

S: Aroma of grainy malt with hints of noble hops, subtle peppery spice, leafiness, mild earthy yeast and stewed husks. Perhaps a twinge of corn in the background. Pretty clean though unexciting.

T: Tastes of pale malt with notes of crisp noble hops, spice, leafiness, mild grass/hay, earthy yeast, subtle grain and stewed husks. Very dry, followed by a sturdy hop-driven bitterness upon swallowing.

M: Mouthfeel is smooth, tingly and dry, with spritzy carbonation and decent body for the style. Quite light but effervescent. Aftertaste of grassy noble hops, faint spice, grainy malt and mild earthy yeast.

O: Not bad; certainly a cut above most industrial lagers out there. Looks alright, while the aroma and flavour are crisp, dry and surprisingly hoppy. Body is OK. That said, it's a tad manufactured and lacks the depth of character that sets apart the very best. Drinkable but no need to hunt it down.

This one works for me. One of the best pilsners. Clean and tasty.

Pretends to be a good German Pilsner. Typical mass production, industrial brew. No character, no soul. Very disappointing beer. Particularly as they advertise it as a premium German brew. IT IS NOT!!!!!!

Poured from a 12 ounce can into a WIlli Becher glass. Canned 10 May 2017. Best before 10 August 2018.
3.25/4/3/4/3.75
Light head. Fizzy, pale, clear yellow beer.
Smells like an excellent pils. Lightly grainy, lightly fruity, crisp and fresh.
A little low-impact. There's not a long going on in the maintaste, and the aftertaste is somewhat oversweet. Pretty spritely and easy-drinking. More grain than anything else; not sulfuric.
A workable, drinkable pilsner. If you want a pils, this is a good option. That said, there are better ones.

Taste like a cheap German lager that pretends-to-be-a-pilsener-but-nothing-of-that-sort-still-not-as-bad-as-a-lager - and that sums it up for me. Weak. Watery. Transparent. Never again.
