Pours a clear pale yellow. Large amount of head fades in to fair lacing.
Smell is slightly sweet, grassy hops.
The taste is sweet malt. Smooth with some mild pepper and citrus at the finish.

L:gives a light yellow color.clear, a decent top of head that stay there for a while.good lacings on the glass.

A: light malts.floral hops and different herbs as spices.i can sense cinnamon in small notes

T&F: starts of sweet and crisp ,the middle are more floral hops dominant.i also sense lemon rinds., I sense some notes of herbs to that are very noticable in the aftertaste, that is the one thing that I was not so impressed with. Else I find this pilsner have a very crisp mouthfeel and and very easy drinkable. Was a very refreshing taste

O: all inn all a good and thirst quenching pilsner that was easy drinking and good. Much better than a lot of other pilsner I tasted.

All in all a suprisingly good bear a hot summer day.
Taste is good and it hold its good taste throughout the bottle.
Will try again. If I see this on a restaurant or bar I know wich beer I am getting.

I have tried this beer several times at several different places, most of them being World Of Beer.

Apperance: Served in .3 Liter Lederer Pilsner glass, which I was allowed to take home. The beer is a clear golden color with a large light head, which takes a few minutes to disappate leaving a constanct quarter inch head.

Smell: Mild sweetness, hop notes, and a bit of spice.

Taste: Very crisp and clean, flavorful malt notes, noble hops as well, earth/grass notes. None of that skunky flavor you may associate with other pilsners (ie heineken). It has a crisp bite at the end as well, which may explain the alligator logo (are there even aligators in Germany?)

All in all, this is an excellent example of a pilsner and is indeed one of my go too beers. Be aware that it does have a bit of a bite, however, a pleasant one that most should find enjoyable.

A: single finger white head with excellent retention on a clear bright golden straw body. Excellent lacing. This is as good ad a pilsner can look.

S: light grains, herbs, lemon and lime.

T: very clean. The grains and pale malts are flavorful without harsh notes or aftertaste. Some mild peppery zest and light lemon lime citrus. Hops are mostly herbal.

M: light body and moderate to high carbonation.

Overall: may be the smoothest and best pilsner I have had. I don't know if this style deserves many 5s but this may be as good as a pilsner gets.

I'm a huge fan of good quality pilsners. So maybe i'm biased. Also, never had this out of glass - only tap from my local german bar. But its a great pilsner.

A - very beautiful pale golden color but not super clear (which is a good sign on quality pilsners). White and light frothy head.

S - wonderful subdued pilsner malt sweetness with a bit of noble hop earthiness and grassiness.

T - I really love this beer. Totally flawless as far as off tastes go (no metallic notes or diacetyl or anything bad). You get a rich, pure, pilsner malt sweetness with cracker followed by a phenomenal woody, foresty, earthy character from the hops. I LOVED the hop character to this beer - just crazy intense yet elegant german noble hop essense. You either love that or hate it. I love that earthy, grassy, flowery, slightly piney essence. Finishes dry and soft with the hops ligering nicely - and you can tell the water used in this beer is so soft soft soft

M- nice texture! light feel, yet seems so full and a bit grainy.

D - off the charts. I could drink this beer all night long.

I loved this beer. If you love high quality pilsners you will love this too. Some beer snobs sneer at pilsners but I find them to be beautiful in their simplicity if done correctly.

Poured into a tall Lederer glass with a handle (22 oz). The aroma is of grass and earthy hops. The taste is not as crisp or bitter as a pils ususally is. Carbonation is medium and the head retention is a foamy white head of three fingers. Very light in color, pale straw with a little chill haze. A very bland pils that is not what I am looking for at a nice beer bar.
