From the bottle, it pours a nice light golden color with a nice pilsner style head. Lacing as you drink the beer. A bit of bready malt and a touch of hops in the nose. The mouth enjoys a nice crisp taste.

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

Poured from a half liter can dated Oct 17. Pours a clear gold with huge, dense, rocky white head, leaves a mess of lace down the glass. Looks great! Smell: bready, honey grahams, a little white grape, mildly floral. Taste: flavors are alright but the watered down feel really drags it down... white bread, spicy and mildly peppery, fleeting lemon and grapeskin pops in the finish. Extra light bodied.

This beer had a great taste. Light and crisp, with more flavor than other major German Pils brands like Becks and St Pauli Girl. I could drink this all day.

The first beer that I ever was drunk on during my German exchange when I was 14...so of highly sentimental value.

Great foamy head for a pilsner, usual colour, aroma is complex and well cultured.

Taste is surprisingly good, in comparison to most pilsners. It has a courageous kick, and a very intertwined malt and hops flavour. Great. I love the malty bitterness that kicks in after the initial sip. Not as flowery as a Czech pilsner, and crisper, drier and more natural/pleasant tasting malt than a Polish one...and generally more smooth.

Brings back memories

Not really that much to comment. A bit watered-down version of the German Pilsner, therefore a bit easier to drink but leaves a bit weird, sour aftertaste and you keep looking for a decent body. I gave it a good 3, thinking that I might have overrated it...

Pours a pale straw color with a slight honey hue. The head is white and wispy and leaves some spotty lacing.

The aroma is clean and grassy. Some cracker malt notes.

The taste is crisp, crackery with grassy and peppery hops. Nice Pils flavor.

The feel is light and crisp. Lightly dry and bitter. Very drinkable.

Very nice Pils. Very refreshing.

Poured a hazy yellow with one finger head into a Pilsner glass. Subtle malt smell. Taste is also not overpowering either malts. A little on the watery side but there is still flavor here. A proper German pils that is very drinkable.

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
