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!

Liter steins served at Karl's Sausage in Peabody, MA.

Pretty pour. Dark filtered gold with a billowing white head.

Smells lively and fruity--definitely a German (not Czech pils). Tastes rich and crisp, with mild fruit up front giving way to light nodes of hay and some earthy hops. Finish is super clean. A very solid example of a difficult style, and I'm glad I got to try some that was relatively fresh.

Transparent golden in body with white bubbly head that sticks around. Aroma of fresh grain, cereal, mild honey, some grass. Tastes of mild honey cereal, grain, some floral, grass, super dry, mild bitterness towards the finish. Light bodied with medium carbonation. Refreshing and dry.

This is one of the better Euro lagers I have tried, it tastes good and has a descent head and lacing. I recommend that you give it a try.

Beautiful golden color. Grain country smell, like I am in the Bavarian countryside with a view of the Alps in the distance. Taste is medium like most German biers but absolutely no staleness. Very refreshing and relaxing feel.

Pours a beautiful, crystal clear golden yellow color with a three finger, rocky, satin white head.

The flavor is refreshingly bitter initially with grassy, floral and slightly spicy notes of earthy pilsner malt. Notes of baked apples and biscuits develop over time. Finishes with a slightly sweet, understated, whipped frosting taste.

The feel is phenomenal, the beer is exceptionally thirst quenching - while still maintaining a rich flavor that isn't cloying or taxing on the palate. I could see myself enjoying quite a few of these over the course of an evening.

Glad I found out about this.
