Pours a crystal clear, deep golden amber coloration with a small, frothy head. Smells of bready, slighty grainy, toasted and caramelly malt and grassy, herbal hops. Taste follows the nose, with a good balance of bready, slightyl grainy, toasted and caramelly malt and grassy, herbal hops, as well as a certain nuttiness and just a hint of dark fruit also coming through. Finishes with a light bitterness and some dark malts and grassy hops lingering in the aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel with a light/medium body and medium carbonation.

This makes for a rather nice Amber Lager with a clear focus on the dark malts, although some grassy, slightly bitter hops are also coming through, creating a very pleasant overall balance here. It's that certain toasted, nutty character with just a touch of dates which stands out here though, although this still remains a rather light and easy-drinking beer at heart. Overall, this makes for an enjoyable Amber Lager that strikes a great balance of sweet and bitter notes, easy-drinkability and subtle richness of malt-forward character, although feeling just a tad light-bodied.

I had a bottle of this at the end of a tradeshow day. It was in a grolsch style resealable porcelain cork. I liked this a lot but I have no idea why it's called a German Pilsner. It was much too malty for that.

I drank it out of a bottle (I know) so I'm not sure what it looked like.

The aroma was very malty with a lot of dark fruit

The flavor was also very malty with dark fruit and pretty good carbonation.

Next time I try one of these I'll pour it into a glass and re-report.

A: Pours a nice brown hue with a tan head.

S: Bold aromas of toasted malt, brown sugar, and toffee.

T: Malty up front as well. Candied malt, brown sugar, toffee, and a big toasted malt. The middle to finish is quite hoppy and bitter. Long bitter finish.

M: Medium in body, rich, with a hopped up finish.

D: Pretty good. Very unique for a german beer.
