Nice beer, simple bottle.
Pours golden clear with small but dense head
Smells lightly of hops, sweet
Taste is light, watery base lightly sweet with distinctive bitter hops lead, simple
Excellent drinkability, light in mouth
Overall good beer choice for a party, especially if you plan to drink much

Had this beer on tap in NYC at three different bars/restaurants. Ryan Maguires Ale House, The Heidleberg, and Fraunces Tavern. The beer was consistent (says a lot about these places barmanship/cellarmanship), it also say a lot about Radeberger. Pours a nice light gold, tartness, green apples taste perfectly balanced by bitterness from the hops at the end. Perfect beer on a hot summer day. This is the consummate German Pilsner in my humble opinion.

The Brewery dates to the previous century in Radeberg near Dresden. The communists took over E. Germany but kept the brewery open. In fact, it was the favorite of the Dresden KGB chief Vladimir Putin. Interesting story. Thank goodness this brewery survived long enough to see the fall of the iron curtain. It is thriving now that it is free.
