3.15/5  rDev -8.4%

Light straw color and quite fizzy.

Crisp, clean and sessionable.

Not a surprise that a mass produced German beer beats out American AALs by a mile but can’t hang with the elite American craft pils.

Can served on lufthansa airlines, best before 1-30-13.

Pours a very pale golden yellow color with a two finger pillowy white head that very slowly fades into a lasting ring. Glass is left coated with sheets of soapy lacing.

Light crisp hop aroma with a subtle earthy, floral character countered by pale malt and faint bready yeast. Pretty bland really other than the faint hop character with a little bread and biscuit.

Medium bodied with a spicy hop bite up front that lingers over the bready yeast and pale malt notes into a slightly dry finish. Nice grassy, earthy flavor with a decent amount of dry bitterness that doesn't overpower the other flavors. Hints of straw and bready yeast followed by pale biscuity malt. Well balanced, enjoyable session(able) beer.

Pours pale yellow with a fluffy white head that holds good retention and leaves some lacing on the glass. Aromas and tastes are similar: pilsner malt, sweet, grassy, finishes with a moderate sharp hop bite. Mouth-feel is rather thin with plenty of carbonation. Overall, it's obviously a German Pilsner, but there are better ones out there for the style = pretty average across the board.

Hard to rate this beer because I believe there are two types, the dark lager and the light lager. However, this review perteins to the dark one. The taste is very different to that of Newcasttle Brown Ale. Except for the nice caramely taste of that of Newcasttle.

It is very strong on the malt and bitternes, taste darker than it looks.

Overall a great beer if you like that dark bitter taste.
