This beer, albeit from a macro brewery, highlights that Americans need a better easy to purchase, go to beer. I love this beer. It is clean, very tasty and gives me the feel if drinking real beer without breaking pocketbook. I wish an American Macro could make a beer of this quality. Love it

Had it on draft in Berlin and it was enjoyable. Nice golden color with a large head and a nice amount of hoppiness. Very smooth as well.

Served cold from 500ml brown bottle into straight pilsner mug.

L) Bright golden colour, clear, decent fluffy white head. Lots of small bubbles rising. Typical for the style, a good example.

S) Strong odour for a cold beer, strong bready malts.

T) Follows the odour, bready lager malt flavour dominates over hops. There is a bit of hop bitterness but quite light for a German pils.

F) Very easy drinking, no bitterness on the aftertaste, mild carbonation means no gassiness.

O) Very easy drinking pils, can't fault it and not expensive. Can't go wrong.

This pils presents itself picture perfectly, lots of white head, and a nice golden and clean looking body. There is a lot of carbonation here, even after a moderate pour. This is how a pilsner should look.

This brew has only a slight fragrance. Not much in the way of malt, but a hint of slight lemon.

In the way of taste, this is a bit more than on par. It's actually a little bit more on the malty side than expected. Somewhat husky and mildly sweet, but nicely counter balanced with a hint of lemon.

This is about as refreshing as one can get in the lager family. Definitely totally balanced and is a swell session cervesa.

Pours a straw color with lots of bubbles and a nice head that sticks around and leaves some decent lacing.

Smell is of fruit banana/apple, malt and some hops.

Taste is pretty good, some fruitiness to it, apple, and a bit of sweet malt and some hops to clean of the taste and give it a floral note. This is what I want a pilsner to taste like. Mouthfeel is light to medium with medium carbonation. Goes down easy and tasty.

A good pilsner, for some reason it's hard to find good ones anywhere.

Appearance: Pale yellow, big head, good lacing.

Smell: Floral, grassy.

Taste: Tasty balanced pilsner, though I get a fair amount of corny sweetness from it. Mild grassy hops.

Overall: I received this as a re-gift, my aunt received it from a German exchange student. The bottle had a best-before date of mid-August, so I was pleasantly surprised how good it tasted despite being out of date. Brown bottle and constant refrigeration probably helped. Anyway, this is a solid pilsner with a little more corn flavor than it probably should have, but that's ok with me.

Poured from a bottle into a beer mug. Large white head with excellent retention. Golden amber color with a strong smell and taste of hops. The aftertaste is delightfully bitter. I bought this bottle as part of a build your own six pack deal, and I'm glad I did. It is an excellent beer.

This is a top German pilsner. Clear gold lies under a beautifully contoured white head that lingers all the way to the bottom leaving a veritable blanket of lace all along the side. The smell is a well-balanced mix of malt and flowery hops. The mouthfeel is just a tad tingly and dominated by malt. The taste starts as sweet barley, with a lovely flowery hop bitterness giving chase. The aftertaste is all hops. A fine product indeed.
