Pretty gold color. Nicely carbonated. Small white head, a little bit of lace.
Grain and grassy aroma.
Taste of grain with a late hit of hops.
Light and easy to drink.

I am surprised the rating isn't higher. Smell is grain followed by a neutral hop that was perfect for the style. Taste was similar to the smell with neither the grain or hops overpowering the other. Finished very clean with just a little bitter aftertaste. It is much more flavorful than Heineken. I drank it from a 500 ml can and poured out a small amount and saw it to be medium yellow/gold, the carbonation was moderately high. Very good, enjoyed it and will buy again.

This is a great German pilsner.
It is easy to drink and has a great malty taste, with the bitterness of hop present.
Drink and enjoy it as a pilsner, not too cold.

For a pilsner this is as good as it gets with its super malty, crisp flavors. Drink it cellared and flavors truly pop. Do not drink it ice cold or you will be disappointed. Remember it's a pilsner so with that said it's near perfect.

A nice German pilsner sampled from a fresh 500ml can dated best but 5/18. Straw color, soapy white head. Taste is pilsner malts and some faint hops. Dry finish. Good beer for the price. Would be a good summer refreshing beer. Far from the best German Pilsners I've had.

A pleasant beer overall but not as flavorful as I thought it might have been for a German made product. Quality is outstanding for a pilsner/lager. The color was a clear lemony-amber color, like liquid sunshine. It very little foam when poured but a nice lacing. Flavor was light but I was expecting more. It was refreshing and had a nice overall pleasant feel. I would have another if offered to me.
