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.

Poured into a pilsner glass. Pours a medium golden amber with a one finger white head with great retention and lacing. A bit of skunk out of the brown bottle, which is disconcerting. Aroma in the glass is a more comforting grainy biscuit malt, grassy continental hops, a hint of lemon and skunk. Flavor is grainy biscuit hops, dry grassy hops, with a mellow husky grain and hop finish with a very slight metallic note. Medium bodied with light creaminess and active carbonation. A pretty much straight arrow German pilsner that is able to balance some husk bitterness in the malt and classic hops into a quite mellow and integrated pilsner whole. Very easy to drink. It seems a little understated at first, but the overall balance and classic flavors are well done. Don't know what's up with the initial skunk, possibly poor storage of a older bottle, although the hops seem otherwise quite nice.
