A- Pours a beautiful pale gold with a nice and long-lasting fizzy-ish white head. Lots of visible carbonation.

S- Bready/malty with a nice backing of noble hops.

T- A really nice balance of the malt notes and the hops. Both sort of tumble in and out of each sip, never over-powering each other.

M- A little thinner, but great the way it is. Crisp, with only just a hint of the visible carbonation. In no way fizzy.

O- A really good pilsner. Tasty on a hot day.

Poured from a 355 ml bottle. Pours a pale lemon yellow which belies its bold flavour. Nose is classic pilsner: crackery/grainy malt with with crisp grassy hops in the background. Taste is also well-balanced. A little sweetness up front with nutty/crackery malt notes and a decent dry, bitter finish. Ample carbonation offers a refreshing mouthfeel. Very solid.

A recent stop at Binney's (South Loop) garnered a long-standing Want for The CANQuest (TM). If anyone else wants this in the CAN, let me know.

From the CAN: "Imported from Germany"; "Radeberger Pilsner is brewed with only the choicest hops, pale malt and pure spring water"; "104 Years Brewed in Radeberg, Germany"; "The Master Brewers of Radeberger Pilsner have been dedicated to crafting nothing but this unparalleled well balanced German Pilsner ever since it was first brewed in the town of Radeberg in 1872. A tradition handed down over the generations to the present day. Its elegant texture has made Radeberger Pilsner one of the finest and most distinguished Premium Pilsners around the world."

I got a good Crack followed by an inverted Glug, resulting in two-plus fingers of dense, rocky, bone-white head that resembled the top of a soft-serve ice cream cone before it began to settle. Color was a bright sunshine-yellow with NE-quality clarity. Nose had a smell like field grain, light for a German Pils, and kind of cereal-like with no discernible hop presence. Mouthfeel was soft, light, very smooth. The taste had that same cereal-like quality that I noted on the nose, and maybe a light grassiness of hops. Finish was still cereal-like, prevalently, and the grassiness lingered lightly in the background after the finish. I feel like the style should be slightly sweeter and exhibit more Noble hops character, but YMMV.
