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)

Radeberger is one of my favorites in the German Pils category. Having originally tasted it while traveling overseas in 2003, I am glad it has hit American shores. I can't believe I am just now reviewing it...

Radeberger pours a brilliant, crystal clear gold, with plenty of carbonation. A pure while head rests on top. While big and billowy at first, it quickly descends and leaves just a 1/8" covering. We do see some nice lacing, though.

The aroma is soft and floral, consisting of juicy pears, white pepper, and sugary malts.
Upon tasting, I am also picking up apple, and a very slight herbal hint, (perhaps rosemary). 'Bready' is a very apt descriptor here, and the hopds are almost lemony. The mouth feel is light and crisp. Overall, very refreshing and refined!
