Good lacing
Proper hops
Crisp.

It's not novel, but it's solid, well executed, and flavorful. There is something to be said for well balanced flavors and a proper, traditional rendition of a classic.

Hazy yellow with low white head. Smells of lemon orange and wheat. Tastes malty sweet upfront with a tickly lemon zest and a dried grassy mild bitter finish. Slightly creamy with a light dry finish

Reviewed from notes. 355ml bottle poured into Peroni glass.

Pours a clear medium straw yellow with a half finger of bone white head that leaves lumpy undersea rock formation lace as it recedes.

Smells of grainy crackery pale malt, apple skin, soft lemon zest and grassy, flowery noble hops.

Tastes of more grainy pale malt, faint unripe orchard fruit and more nobel hops.

Feels mild and refreshing. Light-medium bodied with adequate carbonation.

Verdict: Recommended. A tasty, refreshing pilsner.

This is a light, refreshing beer. The colour, head, nose and feel are what I would expect from a Euro Pilsner. The taste is spot on - biscuit, a bit of floral citrus zest and a hop finish. The second beer from a Bayern mixer pack - I am really looking forward to the other joys it will bring!

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a light golden color with a one finger head of white foam. The head fades quite fast leaving a trace of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is of a grainy and light fruity nature with some grape and citrus. Along with these smells are some bready aromas as well as a little bit of a yeasty and greasy smell.

Taste – The taste begins a somewhat bready and lightly caramel and fruit sweetened taste with the fruit being mainly of pear and grape. As the taste advances yeasty flavors as well as a bit of a grassy and hay flavor come to the tongue. Other lemon and orange citrus flavors develop later on, with them replacing the fruity flavors and caramel that were present upfront. In the end, one is left with a rather pleasant, lightly grainy, and fruity but crisper flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on thinner side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the average side. For the style, both are rather nice, and overall create an easy drinking and more crisp feel in light of the flavors of the brew.

Overall – A pretty nice and easy drinking pilsner with a somewhat fruity and grainy but still sweeter flavor overall.
