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.

This brew has a light and grainy aroma that hints at caramel. Pours a light sparkling golden. The huge fluffy white head has excellent lacing and is everlasting with a full 2 inches remaining at the bottom of my pilsener flute. The sweet flavor has no acidity and finishes mildly bitter. The light watery palate is lively and finishes clean. Probably better on tap, since I did detect the typical aluminum flash of stagnicity in the aftertaste.

Average German beer with nothing special to make you want to drink this beer in the pubs or with food. It's one of those not-bad-not-good beers which you would go for an alternative if there was one but wouldn't refuse to drink it if there wasn't any other beer...

Yeah, i liked it OK. Sweetsih palate, with mild maltiness and hoppiness, quite light in body, thinish palate, but highly drinkable and in-offensive, maybe a bit fizzy aswell.

Taken from a 5 liter mini-keg. Classic German Pils taste, well-balanced sweet pale malts and Noble hops. I have to believe the mini-keg served this beer well as it was smoother than most German-style pilsners I've had and had no hint of sulfur or skunk. Would be interesting to compare to the bottled version.

Fairly average pilsener. Bottle is a lighter shade of brown, needs to be a little darker, as mine had a slighty light-struck (skunky) aroma. OK, but nothing special.
