This is the perfect Pilsner. It’s so refreshing with a nice hop backbone. On tap.

Good beer, very easy drinking. Tap one is better than bottle/can

German beers consistently are in the top league of beer and this now international brew is one of the better examples. Full of flavour, refreshing and quality. As with any proper beer the difference in taste between bottled and canned is considerable and personally I only take the bottled version.

I have read the top rated pilsners in America. Rankings putting American craft brews as the best.
Simply absurd. For some reason, America cannot brew a decent true Pilsen.
This is world class. It sits on the tongue just right for a pilsner. Some golden midranged sweetness, subtle just right tang and some bitterness at the end with a hint of sour. But overall golden warmth of summertime, refreshing and clean. Great beer with food or as a session beer. I like to have one strong ipa, A belgian ale or a dunkel weiss and then switch to this for the rest of the night. Not too strong but gets the job done and not so sugary. Does not make you feel like crap the next day like drinking too many high calorie double ipa's

Great tall branded pilsner glass holds a 16 oz draft pour.
The straw colored body supports a 1/2 inch white head.
The odor and taste are a perfect balance of hop and malt with neither dominating.
medium carbonation gives a nice bite to the mouthfeel and makes for an active beer in this presentation.

This beer has a big tight head that stays around. Massive carbonation is streaming up with great vigour.

The aroma is a herbal hop smell typical of German pils. I detect mint and spring water in the smell.

The beer is highly drinkable. It tastes of noble hops and minerals with a mild but lingering bitter aftertaste.

The mouthfeel is like sparkling mineral water. Smooth but carbonated.

Overall, a mild but refined and delicious beer that would suffice as a standard example of a German pilsener. Very similar but not identical to Warsteiner and Bitburger.

My mark out of one hundred would be 87.
