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.

50cl bottle

appearance: clear golden, one finger off white head, soapy lacing medium carbonation.

smell: grainy malts, grassy hops and a bit of white bread.

taste: this is much stronger than other pilsners, taste wise, I think. Malty with a continuous grassy hop presence.

mouthfeel: refreshing and satisfaying. Crisp.

overall: I haven't tried that much german pilsners, but to this point I think this is one the best so far.

Yellow, crystal clear. Big frothy white foam, three fingers tall, diminishing. Decent lacing. Has a nice, medium strong, grainy, malt aroma. Medium malty, sweet and medium bitter hoppy taste. Medium body, soft carbonation, medium lasting medium-low dry finish.

Very good taste, well balanced with some nice bitterness. There is no astringency. Unfortunately lacks of hop aroma. Still it is a very fresh and crisp beer. There is no any cornish flavors etc. I felt a bit of diacetyl but I am aware that is tolerable in this style.

I think I might like this better than bitburger. Clear yellow, but with a big white head. Can smell and taste the hops quite well. Reminds me of why I love this style.

Clear, pale, golden color with a foamy head. Streak lacing. The aroma is light, cracker malt and herbal notes. Flavor is grass, mild floral notes, grain, and yeast. Crisp and refreshing, mild bitter aftertaste. Not a beer I'd seek out, but fine for drinking.

Pours a clear gold color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Decent retention and decent lacing. Smells of Euro yeast, pale malt, strong adjunct, and a hint of hops. Fits the style of a German Pilsner. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of Euro yeast, pale malt, strong adjunct, and a hint of hops. Overall, slightly better than average for a German Pilsner.

Trying to be able to better distinguish different pilsners, I found this to be average to above average. What makes a good pilsner? I don't know, but I'd like to find out.

500 mL can. Bottom of the can says born on 8/16/16, best before 11/16/17.

Bright, pale gold color with a huge fluffy white head that refuses to go away. Brilliant clarity, I mean you can see straight through this thing and read a book on the other side of the glass. Great looking lager.

Bready pilsner malt combined with grassy hops. That's all it is. Simple, yet refined and perfectly executed. Lingering bitterness leaves a dry finish. Medium-light bodied and incredibly easy to drink.


Don't think too much about it, just enjoy the flavors of the honest ingredients and drink up. Great value for the price and quite possibly my new go-to pilsner. Prost!
