Decent flavor and easy mouthfeel. Metallic aftertaste kind turns me off of it. Decent head that hangs around for a while but bot quite long enough.

The beer is a pale straw and very clear with a lot or carbonation. The head was frothy for a while but thinned out. The beer has a nice wheat and hay smell to it. The beer has a mild grassy taste to it. The beer is nice and very drinkable

Nice straw color with a sustained head and even lacing going down. Refreshingly light hop bitterness and a crisp finish and good carbonation as well. Easy drinker with low alcohol. Good summer beer.

Very nice beer with presence. This is a very solid choice for flavor and character. Mildly carbonated. At the forefront of this beer is pure malt with good tingle on your tounge. Afterward you are left with a nice bitterness from the hops. The hopp notes stay with your pallet for a few minutes. This beer is not sweet at all, you get burned toast-like flavor. Best of all, you dont get that copper penny smell or aftertaste like the American beers. Pure goodness.

I've had this many, many times. In fact. years ago, before microbreweries were everywhere (and I was on a very limited beer budget) I used to buy 12 packs of this locally at a fairly cheap price. It's a decent pilsener, one that I typically now purchase in tall cans (and still at a good price). It pairs with pizza. The hops are subtle, but it has some crispness. When I'm in the mood for this style, I slightly prefer Bitburger to be honest.
