Served cold from 500ml brown bottle into straight pilsner mug.

L) Bright golden colour, clear, decent fluffy white head. Lots of small bubbles rising. Typical for the style, a good example.

S) Strong odour for a cold beer, strong bready malts.

T) Follows the odour, bready lager malt flavour dominates over hops. There is a bit of hop bitterness but quite light for a German pils.

F) Very easy drinking, no bitterness on the aftertaste, mild carbonation means no gassiness.

O) Very easy drinking pils, can't fault it and not expensive. Can't go wrong.

Thought this was a pretty good German pilsner. Pours a bright yellow with a decent foam head. Aroma was a subtle citrus, while taste balanced hops and malt characteristics quite well. Nothing overwhelming in terms of flavor or character. Just a well-executed pils that you could easily drink while still getting a rewarding experience.

Great tall branded pilsner glass holds a 16 oz draft pour.
The straw colored body supports a 1/2 inch white head.
The odor and taste are a perfect balance of hop and malt with neither dominating.
medium carbonation gives a nice bite to the mouthfeel and makes for an active beer in this presentation.
