330 ml bottle into lager glass, bottled on 3/3/2017. Pours slightly hazy pale golden yellow color with a 1 finger dense and rocky white head with awesome retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of cracker, white bread dough, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness/pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. A bit of fruity aromas, but not overwhelming. Nice and pleasant aromas with pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of cracker, white bread dough, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness/pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate herbal, grassy, peppery bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of cracker, white bread dough, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness, pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and balance of pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance. Slight lingering hop astringency, but not overwhelming. Nicely clean on lager flavors, with minimal fruity/yeasty notes. Moderate increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, and bready/grainy/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.9%. Overall this is a very nice German pilsener. All around nice robustness and balance of pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, and refreshing to drink with the moderately bitter/drying finish. Very flavorful for the ABV. Clean and nicely rich pils malt showcase, with nice noble hop presence/balance. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.

From the 16 oz. can with a 01/31/2018 expiration date. Tasted on January 28, 2018.

It pours straw yellow with a tremendous white foamy head and a little murkiness. Relatively good clarity but there is something foggy it up.

The aroma is a delight of toasted bread, grain, barley malt, and grass, and I would expect little less from a German Pilsener.

The body is smooth and almost in the medium range. It has a little depth to it.

The taste is bread and biscuit, sweet, a touch of lemon zing and a mild dry bitter finish. PIlseners are meant to be this way and this is a good example of the style. 30+ years ago I had a friend who drank this all the time so I was pleased to find it in a store recently.

Pours a clear gold color. 3/4 inch head of a white color. Great retention and slight lacing. Smells of citrus hops, hint of wheat, pale malt, hint of sweet malt, hint of rice, and a hint of Euro yeast. Fits the style of a German Pilsner. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. There is also a noticeable dryness. Tastes of hint of citrus hops, hint of wheat, pale malt, hint of sweet malt, slight rice, and a hint of Euro yeast. Overall, good appearance, rice dryness unpleasant, but otherwise a good German Pils.

.5 L can poured into a pint glass

Pours a clear pale straw color with a white bright head, good amount of carbonation, good amount of lacing, looks crisp and clean. Subtle aromas of pale malts, lemon, hay, honey, light spice as well, not very aromatic. Not much flavor, light notes of wet hay, honey, spice, finish is dry with lingering notes of lemon and grass. Mouthfeel is light with an easy drinkability and crisp clean finish. An easy drinking beer not as much flavor as other German pilsners I've tasted but I could have a few of these without complaint.

Very smooth and full of flavor. Not too malty or fizzy. Will buy again.
