Maybe I just got a fresher bottle or something, but I think this better this its rAvg, with a good bready pils malt character quite present. I'm sure there are scads of better examples in Germany, but as far as imports go, I thin you could do a lot worse than this.

Update: got an older bottle and the pils malt and hops had definitely fallen off some, but it didn't turn into anything undrinkable. Really just a toned down version of itself. Gonna leave the score for now, as I have a feeling fresh it could really be quite nice.
