Picked it up at the Home Plus in Busan Korea. Of course, compared to most Korean beers it stands tall. Color is a warm gold. Smell is somewhat hoppy and grainy. It gave a gentle lacing to the Rok Navy Club cocktail glass. Taste was somewhat grainy a little hoppy but average. Definitely a great beer for after a dry week and a good run/hike around the Orykdo coastal trails.
I could drink maybe one more.

Drank this beer in a hotel in Wolfenbuttel in Germany. They had it on tap and that is always the best thing to drink this German beer.

Poured in the glass you get a well balanced beer with a nice white head and a light yellow fluid.

You can smell the good hops and the citrus which comes along with it.

A very enjoyable and drinkable beer which can be drank all over Germany. It is a well known and commercial beer.

Drank in a Stein at Belfast NI Oktoberfest 2014

Appearance – A good amber golden colour with decent CO2 activity in the glass. This beer raised a great head that lasted well over the average 3-4 minute marker. There was also a lot of heavy lacing from this beer.
Smell – The nose in this beer was very much dominated by the malt profile. The hop aromas were somewhat lost as the beer was served in a Stein glass. There was some evidence of solvent in the aroma but it was not enough to be a problem for me personally.
Taste – The malt aromas from the nose were very noticeable in the flavour of this beer and the lost hops finally came through here. There was a decent amount of mild sweetness from the malt and a nice bitter finish from the hop. This beer was straight up and did what it set out to do and it did it very well.
Mouthfeel – The CO2 gave great tingle in this beer that had very nice body and amazing linger.
Overall – This beer is pretty damned good. The flavour profile is pretty much exactly what a Pilsner in this style should be. Of all the German Pils I have had the pleasure to drink this is one of the best.
