I poured this pils from the refrigerator to a stange glass. Pinky sized head with much carbonation. A beautiful golden color with sparse lacings down the glass. It tasted mostly bitter at the back, but light on the front. Crisp and refreshing.

Great pilsener, but has a slightly less of a crisp after-taste than I prefer. Nonetheless, it is a great go to beer when in southwest Germany.

Appearance - clear golden straw color with white head

Smell - cracker, grain, grass, herb

Taste - biscuit, cracker, herb, grass, grain

Mouthfeel - medium bodied, high carbonation, slight grain/biscuit sweetness upfront, herbal/grassy finish. This is crisp and refreshing

Overall - very nice Pilsener here. I jumped at the chance to try this when I saw it on the shelf and it didn't disappoint. Recommended.

Price point - $1.69/11.2 oz bottle

Fresh, and on tap, it's like drinking malted grass.

And then finding out what a delicious thing that is.
