Very good Brew. Delightful and enjoyable. Goes down smooth like any good German beer.

12oz can. Served in a willi becher glass. Pours a medium golden yellow body, one finger thick white head, fair retention, thick lacing. Smell is slightly perfume-y, crisp grain, touch of noble hop, slight white grape must. Flavour is sweet and crisp barley sweetness, light floral hops and a bit of earth on the finish. Solidly constructed beer, very drinkable with good flavour. Mouthfeel is medium-lighter bodied, appropriately carbonated, mild to minimal bitterness on the finish.

Pours a dark straw producing a 3+ finger of somewhat lasting, frothy, white head that leaves substantial clumps, rings & webs of lace. Aroma is thin pilsner malt, dry grass & a hint of honey & lemon zest. There is a faint mineral note in the background. Taste is light but clean pale malt, cracker, some lemon, honey & grass. Somewhat dry but not as much so as many of the German Pilseners I've tried. My guess would be that Noble hops are responsible for the bitterness in the finish & aftertaste.

Pours a golden body with decent enough foaming white head
Aroma of icing sugars, farmhouse loaves and brewing copper
Nice malty taste with slight bitter finish
Decent enough mf
Probably now my favourite traditional German pils

This is an above average beer for a Euro lager. It comes in a brown bottle as opposed to other Euro lagers than come in a green bottle. It has a typical Euro lager smell as soon as you pop the cap, it pours with a descent head, and leaves a good amount of lacing on a pilsner glass. This is definitely worth a try.
