Simply put, this is one of the finest Pilsners I've ever drank...and I've drank plenty...most of the popular ones. This beer pours utterly clear, with a beautifully contrasting white, large head that becomes frothy and asymmetrically placed on top of the beer. It remains significant all the way down...which is awesome as well all know that a great deal of a beer's flavor is in it's head. Plenty, and I mean PLENTY of lacing adhering to my imperial pint glass. Now on to the taste. Exotic, period. The hops used to make this beer evoke a floral flavor that is unique and different from all other Euro Pils that I have tried. This is a very unique Pils. I love the Czech variety of course, as well as many of the German offerings, but this IS THE BEST.

Now, this beer, unlike, and unfortunately like many other beers, is available in half liter cans, (16.9 oz) 4 packs that are reasonably priced. This not only represents a great value, but it ALSO ensures you beer will be fresh and NOT like struck! I think on average here in my Chicago neck of the woods I can buy a 4 pack with tax for around $7.00..more in Chicago of course because of high sales tax, but in the burbs, much cheaper. If you do the math the you'll see the volume content is nearly the same as a 6 pack of 12oz bottles. This also equates to less > $1.50 per beer. Not bad AT ALL when you consider the outstanding quality of this brew, and it IS a brew... If you're a fan of Lager/Pils type beers this is a must try. Get the cans if available..pour into a nice clean glass and prepare to be hoppily entertained!

It's a German Pilsner so it's dry, bitter and sour - nothing really more to add. Mediocre and uninteresting. Would much more prefer a Czech Pilsener instead...

Cloudy amberish yellow with a thick head
Smells very sweet with a sharp skunky smell and noticeable hops
The taste is strong of malt, like a dortmunder, with considerable hops
Overall a really tasty brew that's just a little ballsy

Clear straw yellow color with a decent white head that lasts well.

The aroma is bread with notes of apple.

The taste is sweet malt, apple, pear, fresh bread, and some grassy notes with a somewhat metallic aftertaste.

Light bodied, smooth and very drinkable.

Overall a very decent pilsner, refreshing.

File this one under "wow I'm surprised I haven't written a review of that beer I've had several times over the years."

Pours a familiar slightly stronger than straw yellow. Puffs up to around 3/4" white head. A little bit of grain and apple/pear to it. Lacks Euro skunkiness. Taste is also familiar, in that there isn't too much of it there. Its mild, as style dictates. Slight lemon bitterness, toasted pale pilsner malts. A mild dry and grassiness to it. Seems right in the wheelhouse for what German Pils is rocking. A little bit of sweetness makes you question about corn, but this is Germany, so prolly not.

Sitting down on a warm Hawaiian night.

Tastes like a typical pils with a little bit of a bite. Leaves a nice pils after taste.

Not much smell to it.

Overall a decent pils.

Pours a clear light golden with a large white fluffy crown,nice look with good carbonation.Somewhat bland in the nose,lightly toasted grain and a metallic note mainly.There is quite a sweetness present on the palate like others have notes a tinge of honey,light toasted and metallic in the finish.A little sweeter than expected but useful for a grilling day like today.
