500 ml bottle, clear yellow color. slightly flowery smell, but overall not very aromatic. Taste is light, floral and watery with a slight hop bitterness thats hangs around on the back end. mouthfeel is smooth with good carbonation. Overall this is a good beer. slightly above average. Refreshing very easy to drink and no off tastes. Good for a hot day.

Best by July, 2012

Staw with a finger of fine whites, brilliant clarity. Sweet pilsner malts with a nice, woody and piny nose. Interesting take on the style for the geography, takes on a almost peppery nose. Flavor is grain with a hint of corn and some dry, earthy hops. Flavor not as interesting as the nose. Thin with moderate carb and an off-dry finish. Decent, but nothing to call for seconds on.

Poured from 500mL bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: golden-yellow hue with a haze-free body and a light effervescence. Head poured two thick fingers of pillowy white foam with good retention.

Smell: nice, though light, aroma of sweet malt, a dash of grain and a dose of noble hops. I like it.

Taste: light malt flavor with some grain at the end. Bitterness and hop flavor are pretty low, but this beer is pretty free of flaws. I like it.

Mouthfeel: light body with a good carbonation. Not creamy, but interesting enough.

Overall: a middle of the road Pilsner which is highly quaffable. It comes together well on this sunny spring day.

Ap: Golden yellow color. Tiny bit of head with minimal lace.

Ar: Light and sweet candy smell. Apple cider off smell. Very faint but pleasant.

Ta: light and refreshing. Crisp and engaging. It isn't over-powering and you don't want it to be. Mild bitterness but I like it.

Mf: Refreshing and crisp. Very sessionable. Me like.

Ov: It doesn't blow you away but it isn't supposed to. You drink one, it becomes two then three. It's engaging and invites you to keep drinking. I'm glad this bar has it half off. I hope the keg doesn't blow. Cheers!

A: Pale gold as usual for a pilsner. Looks nice in the light, crystal clear with small bubble carbonation.

S: A light and clean barley with not much else.

T: Pretty crisp and refreshing. Not a whole lot of complexity going on, as expected. Fresh tasting with a tiny hop kick.

M: Clean and light, but not totally wimpy. A good warm weather mouthfeel.

O: I like it. It's not my first choice, but not my last either. There's nothing standout about it in any regards.

Another evening, another pilsner. It's an early spring here and these make the heat bearable.

-Appearance 3.5: Poured out a brilliant coppery golden color. Head was short (less than 1") and quickly disappeared.

-Smell 4.0: Very nice bouquet. I smell subtle hops, barley and a floral scent that is very appealing. Bouquet is subdued, however.

-Taste 4.0: Front is dry, but refreshing. Middle is a somewhat soapy tasting barley with very subtle hop overtones, which is surprisingly good. Finish is yeast and barley. Aftertaste is dry and crisp. Very unusual and very good pilsner.

-Mouthfeel 4.0: Carbonation is thirst-quenching and enhances this brew. Very good.

-Overall 4.0: Very good beer. This would be amazing with rich food as I could see its dryness cutting through the rich food like a razor. As a session beer, it is excellent, light and satisfying. Highly recommended.

The beer is clear, golden yellow color with a very nice head on top of it. Quite white clear color foam too. Sticks excessively to the glass, nice. Very nice looking beer, some haziness would make this perfect.

On the nose, the beer is floral... mainly floral, but light. Refreshing in the aroma. Taste is thin and light. Malty with somewhat of a bitterness but nothing to call your mom. Similar as Bitburger. Nice summer beer, nice pilsner but not aggressive at all. Thin bodied. Refreshing. Overall a good pilsner but it is missing some punch to be great. I like it for thirsty and hot summer days.

Another one of the beers I brought back from my recent trip to Germany, the only one which was half litre though.

Poured into a tall wide glass, light golden yellow colour and a two finger head, with some bubbles rising to the top.

Aroma is the usual for pilseners malts.

Taste is quite bitter, the hops really kick in once you swalloed it.

Thin in body with medium carbonation, and a bit dry.

I found it quite average, although it comes in a bottle with lots of golden colours on the label and a golden foil on the neck, so I expected it to be one bit more "premium".

Found in Denver, CO in a sixer of 12 oz. bottles.

Looks a clear, strong golden colour. Smells fresh, hints of hay and...wet grass? Subtle malty notes as well.

Tastes very malty, much more is present than hides behind the faint smell. Strong carbonation the whole way through, but strangely little head remains on top. Overall, this beer makes itself known in your mouth, and that's not a bad thing. I'd definitely drink this again, though I'm not sure I'd seek it out especially.
