honey, malts and yeast. Taste: honey, malts and a tiny bit of tropical fruits. Finish is sour and yeasty. This beer aims for a modern Kellerbier to get the cool kids back to buying big industry beer but it is just a mess.

Very good example of my favorite style of beer . Was quite tasty but still refreshing and easy to drink . Doesn't top radeberger in my opinion but is still good and would not complain about only having this in my fridge

Clear gold with small white head. Smells of yeast and salt. Taste pretty much follows. Clean with a slight sourdough flavor. A little on the watery side. It is crisp and highly drinkable, but not that exciting of a beer.

It's pleasant, even if I am not a big fan of this style. This beer has a mildly bitter taste, with presence of hop and grain. The smell is not strong, as you can expect from a pilsener, with reminiscences of herbs, spice and, again, grain. Color is very pale and the foam, that is dense and almost white, vanishes in less then a minute

330 ml bottle into lager glass, best before 6/15/2017. Pours fairly crystal clear pale golden/straw color with a 1 finger dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of cracker, lightly toasted biscuit, light honey, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Slight fruitiness in the nose, but pretty minimal. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of cracker, lightly toasted biscuit, light honey, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of cracker, lightly toasted biscuit, pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness and balance of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero astringent flavors after the finish. Moderate dryness from bitterness, increasing through the glass. Very clean on lager flavors, with zero yeast notes present. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, and fairly grainy/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is good. A little thin, but not watery feeling. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.8%. Overall this is a good German pilsener style. All around good robustness and balance of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.
