Can. From Hipercor. In Bavaria hefe glass. At dinner, with trufas burger. Malty, with plenty strong bitterness and some sweetness through. Maybe slight oxidation but fitting well for my liking. High drinkability

Tastes like a budweiser with just a bit more hops going on. A typical macrolager beer. Real thirsty on a hot day after some yard work. This one will be good for that.

500 ml can
Served in a pokal glass

This beer pours a brilliant golden color and is topped with two inches of fluffy, white head that settles to a skim leaving some lacing.

I get some biscuit and bread aroma and not much else.

It has a crisp, clean taste. It doesn't have a lot of flavor, but I can pick up some light grain notes and even a slight bitterness in the finish.

Moderate to thin mouthfeel

This is a super easy drinker. It is clean, and I could drink these all day. It's a very solid German standard.

From the tall boy can in a pint glass. This old classic pours a clear pale yellow
with a nice head of white foam that settles to a thick ring, thin pool, and features
some nice light lacing. Nose of light pilsner malts and subtle grains. Flavors
lightly exceed the nose but not enough to budge the rating with lightly sweet pilsner
malts and light grains with mild hop notes. Nice mouth feel, crisp, clean, and lightly
sweet, Overall a fine brew for after mowing the lawn....or a good one to prime the
pump with.

Cheers
