I’ve had a 660ml bottle sitting around for a few weeks now. Was part of a mixed multibuy offer at supermarket.
Poured in standard pint glass.
Mid yellow colour with small head with small bubbles that quickly disappeared leaving a small cloud on top.
Smell a little bit skunky, some hops presence.
Taste was okay. Bready and some hops. Nothing amazing but definitely better then a rice filled mass produced lager.
A little sweeness on the aftertaste after a few sips.

Overall, an okay drink but I wouldn’t go out of my way to seek it out.

I wouldn’t exactly call this a Pepe Le Pew beer, but it has a lil bit of skunk to it. Along with that are dry, bready-like features that the Raul man is kind of into. Like a Sunday afternoon romp, no way he turns this beer down, but she ain’t the best cheerleader on the squad, either. Ya feel me?

Pours a clear light yellow with a thick white pillow of a head that leaves great lacing. The aroma is light bread and European hops. The flavor is a great combo of sweet malt and slightly bitter hops. The feel is light and decently carbonated. Nice beer.

Aroma: Floral with some fresh cut grass. Pretty floral approaching perfume, colonge.
Taste: Get some malts that are bread, biscuits. Dry hops

Crisp, clean, refreshing.

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.
