Clear gold with a thick lush white head that leaves solid lacing.

Wet hay hop aroma. Clean tasting with some slight bready malt; a hint of cornand skunk; wet hay hops again; and a crisp aftertaste.

Medium bodied. Decent carbonation. An all around solid pilsner.

This must be the German equivalent of a Budweiser. Absolutely the worst German beer I've ever had. No aroma. No taste. Carbonated water

P- Poured from a 12 oz bottle,into a Cigar City pint glass.Bottled on 10/06/16 ,best by 10/06/17.

L- Frothy white colored head that stands 1 finger tall,with good retention and sticky lacing.Gold / straw colored body with very good clarity.Low amount of carbonation.

S- On the nose I get grain,wheat,lemon,and grassy notes.A little bit of earthy hops as well.

T- On the palate I get spice and earth hops up front,lemongrass in the middle,and light wheat,grain,and barley on the back end.

F- The mouth feel is a bit thin,with a moderate amount of oxidation on the tongue.Smooth finish.

O- This is a decent pilsner.Not my favorite style,and not my favorite version of the style.It's not a terrible beer,but it is also not something I would drink again.But if you're a big fan of pilsners,by all means give it a shot.

12oz can. Served in a willi becher glass. Pours a medium golden yellow body, one finger thick white head, fair retention, thick lacing. Smell is slightly perfume-y, crisp grain, touch of noble hop, slight white grape must. Flavour is sweet and crisp barley sweetness, light floral hops and a bit of earth on the finish. Solidly constructed beer, very drinkable with good flavour. Mouthfeel is medium-lighter bodied, appropriately carbonated, mild to minimal bitterness on the finish.

Pours a dark straw producing a 3+ finger of somewhat lasting, frothy, white head that leaves substantial clumps, rings & webs of lace. Aroma is thin pilsner malt, dry grass & a hint of honey & lemon zest. There is a faint mineral note in the background. Taste is light but clean pale malt, cracker, some lemon, honey & grass. Somewhat dry but not as much so as many of the German Pilseners I've tried. My guess would be that Noble hops are responsible for the bitterness in the finish & aftertaste.
