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.

Very good and really enjoyed it out of a champagne flute glass. Any other glass and flavor didn't shine.

not a whole lot to this one, and ive never really heard much about it, but its always nice to discover a new to me german pils, so this was a must order when i saw it on tap. poured in its own branded skinny mug, it looks pretty good, very light, short of golden even, just light yellow or straw colored, with an inch of lasting but passive white head and a ton of rising bubbles. a little european grain to the nose and taste, and some grassy slightly bitter hops that dont have a whole lot going on, but also a crisp and drying lager yeast that defines the style generally and in fact ends up defining this one. bready and snappy at the same time, light but not watery, dry but not flavorless in the end, its a nice strain of yeast and its well applied here. i like how light the body is here and how each sip ends up being a gulp, this is how beer drinkers drink beer, and i found myself literally plowing through this in anticipation of another. light but rich at the same time, quality for the price is at an all time high here, and this is just easy drinking light beer. good fun in high volume, but satisfying for a discerning drinker too...

Pours clear light gold, with slight white head and lacing.

Aroma is slightly sweet, not-quite-done-baking breadiness, with light floral/yeast/honey notes.

Taste is more-or-less the same as aroma, plus a touch of spiciness. There is a light, underlying pleasant bitterness. Feel is appropriately thin, with very fine carbonation.

Very smooth, and easy-drinking. Nothing "wow" about it ; just a solid, everyday, pils, which was just the perfect thing , at this moment. :)

Got 0.3l on draft at the BMW museum cafe.
Arrived in a branded flute with a thin disappearing head atop a bright clear golden body. Tastes of light floral honey and little else. Mouthfeel was light and clean. Too easy to drink.

True to style German Pilsner. Straw coloured with good head. Clean malt taste with properly bitter finish.
