A nice German pilsener, pours a clear golden color, topped with a generous and slowly disappearing white head.
There is a pleasant mild malty aroma complemeted by some grains. Nothing special, but nice.
The taste starts slighty more on the sweet side and is followed by a nicely balanced body with some bitterness added. Finishes with a decent bittery feel, lasting for some time after.
A very drinkable and tasty pilsener. I also love to have one of these, whenever I can.

T: Grain flavor with sweet malty presence and hints of grape and lemon zest.

Poured it from bottle into Pilsner glass. Good head of over one inch, slight retention, leaving behind a little lace. Color is light yellow, clear with medium carbonation. First smell is bright floral. Medium mouthfeel, with balanced taste with slight bitterness and aftertaste. Overall a pleasant beer, nothing overwhelming but also nothing memorable.

I love the taste; not too sweet or bitter, and it's an overall stronger flavor of course than American style lagers. I usually drink it straight from the bottle a little cooler than room temp. My only gripe is that under those conditions it nearly always overflows out of the top upon being opened. Foam may look good in the TV spots but when there's enough to shave with it's too much. Others may disagree. I prefer Bitburger but that's not available in my area.
