Look is what you’d expect. Not much smell. Taste is very “grainy” has a barnyard quality, but not in a bad way. Hay, grain, dust, funk. It seems to work. Different from other Pilsners with the more complex malt character. Hops are nondescript floral German variety. It’s not bad at all.

Tastes pretty much like a Pilsener but I think just slightly below average in all aspects. Nothing to write home about but relatively cheap and still better than an American lager.

I've got to admit I like Pilsner, as the beer my Dad raved about after being in the occupation forces, but so long as it's decent quality, it's tough to tease the clear, mass pilsners apart. liked this one the deeper I got into it.
a) Mine is crystal clear, straw yellow that pumps a good head that rings and lacely nicely in a wine glass.
s) Germanic hops, lemony, grassy, herbacious, crackery/ biscuity. But as always, too faint.
t) Lemony clean with a cracker malt flavor; with the mid palate lemon, grass, and bright hops.
f) Light, right, nicely carbonated and nice clear, clean finish. Sharp. Sessionable.

It is what it is. A nice German lager.

I’m all for bourbon barrel aged, 13% abv, stouts with mocha and peppers, but sometimes I just want a “beer”.

That’s when I head back to the old reliable German styles. Easy drinking, nicely balanced with that crackery, bready, quality that Germans seem to do better than Americans. With a nice mild hop finish that reminds you they’re there.

A nice version of the style.
