A beer I never fail to enjoy. Better to drink at least 2 of these so the flavour begins to coat your mouth. Can seem bland at first, especially if you drink a bigger flavoured beer first. Subtle, herbaceous, beauitifully noble hopped. Like a good dry white wine it keeps throwing up different subtle flavours with each sip. They're not very strong flavours. They're delicate and refined. Grassy hops. Minerals. Spring water fresh from a mountain stream... but multiplied and amplified. That would be the mountain of dreams. A work of art. I might give this the edge over Bitburger even though Bitburger is stronger flavoured. This is more herbal and certainly as good.

My mark out of one hundred would be 87.

Clear light golden pour with an immense head. Good lacing and retention for a pilsner. The nose is a light biscuit sweetness over just a touch of hops. Light medium body with normal carbonation which effervesces a bit on the finish. The flavor profile is low key, yet nicely balanced. It begins with a slight biscuit that flows into a slight bitterness against a slightly sweet background. The finish is crisp with a pleasant light bitterness that lingers a bit.
