Clear deep gold. White head then it's gone. Smell of herbal hops. Cracker.the taste is the same as the smell. Heavy carbonation, but lighter in character.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: Hazy yellow with peachy tones. Active carbonation, and a small head that dissipates quickly.

S: Light fruity aroma, with hints of apple and light honey.

T: Crisp and clean flavor. Apple and light grain, with a mild hop bite.

M: Light bodied, moderately carbonated. Appropriate for the style

O: Overall this is a good pilsner from Germany. Not as hoppy as many of the American interpretations but still and enjoyable beer.

From a 500 ml flip-top bottle consumed in Nurnberg, on to the beer:

It's a pale gold color with a clean body, a soapy yet fluffy head, and stringy lace clinging around the glass. The nose of grass and hay are nice, though are mannered in a mild intensity. The bite of fresh grass hits the palate first, which then gives the opportunity for a green apple note to kiss. A touch of citrus and hint of vague vegetables rounds the taste. The body is light-medium, closer to medium, with gentle crispness, finishing out this good pilsner.

Bottle poured into a Sam Adams glass

Poured a nice frothy two finger foam cap that settled down with considerable lacings on the glass. Deep golden color with tiny bubbles.

Faint sweet aroma, almost like honey.

Nice , light mouth feel. Clean taste with a hint of sweetness. Mild hop and malt taste. Pleasant beer , very drinkable and refreshing. Would have again but wouldn't go far out of my way to buy just one. Good beer for the price.

Poured into a pint.

A - A translucent straw yellow with a big, three-finger pale head. Soapy lacing left behind. Good retention.

S - Grain sweetness, light fruit and grass. Took some effort to detect all of them.

T - Few hops, clean and crisp throughout. Far from bold.

M - Light+ bodied, fairly dry on the finish. As far as the style, far from poor.

O - I really do not care for pilseners in general. This does a few things pretty well, without making any major mistakes. I would not return to it, although I cannot name any pils I would buy again!
