Standard 500mL can purchased from my store this evening. It's one of our best selling Euro beers, so I don't know why it has taken so long to review it.

It pours a light yellow colour with a tremendous, fluffy head. It pours like how I expect a German pilsner to pour - good start. The aroma is subtle with some slight bitterness. It doesn't reek of hops - which is a good thing, because I tend to reserve that sort of trait with IPAs. The taste is perfectly hoppy for a pilsner with a subtle backing of malt. The feel is good - a thick feel on the tongue with a solid rush of carbonation.

This is a very good example of a German Pilsner. There are better ones, sure, but this one is inexpensive and made very well.

Bottle poured into a Sam Adams glass

Pours a solid three finger foam cap which slowly settles into an effervescent lid leaving the frothy lacings grabbing the side of the glass. Crystal clear golden yellow with faint carbonation.

Grassy hop aroma.

Light mouthfeel. Light pilsener flavor. Faint hop after taste.

Looks better than it tasted.I expected more from a German pilsner.

I was at the brewery on a tour from the Dresden Dampflok Treffen and after the brewery tour was given a tase. It is a very old beer brewery and produces a quality pilsner. I feel it too like most really good beers in Germany they have suffered from success and if they are producing enough beer to keep 60,000 bottles an hour bottling machines busy the beer is being mass produced and is suffering from its success. I have tasted the bottled beer and it is not as tasty as that at the brewery also.

Crystal clear golden color with bright white head that recedes to a thin lace quickly. Sweet grainy breads and herbal hops on the nose.

Very nice, no astringency or off putting skunk flavors I normally find in the style. On the heavier side of being light bodied, creamy carbonation. Initial bready sweetness. Sweetness through off by nice brisk carbonated bite and a spicy and earthy hop character. Bitterness is moderate and the beer is more balanced then anything. Flavorful and very drinkable.

A: Nice clear gold with a close to perfect head

S: Nice mild aroma with hoppy hint.

T: Light with a grainy sweetness and a hoppy bite.

M: Above average, nothing to brag about.

O: This is one of my favorites, can drink it everytime; seems to be the beer of choice for "Two and a half men" (meaningless fact)
