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.

Pours a style-appropriate clear pale color with tons of effervescent bubbles spiraling to the top to supplement and keep the very tight cap going. It's a pretty world class appearance for a Pils.

Aromas of sweetbread, apples, pears, and light barley starch.

Flavor is much of the same which is a very positive thing. Tons of fruity flavors underneath a great bready, malty profile. Apples, pears, and light watered down melon sit atop bread and bread crusts, and some leafy qualities with a slight metallic presence which seems to be its only flaw. I imagine in Austria there's no time for it to sit in a container being shipped overseas so that metallic presence is probably not there. This is really, really good.

Feel is crisp, creamy, and smooth. Just crushable.

Overall, I have no problem doting on a beer if it's blowing my mind. This one is. It's a solid pilsner and worthy of attention. Best of class?

Light golden yellow colour, smells like a typical euro pils - which is good. The best thing about this is the smell. Tastes surprisingly watered down, poor flavour overall. Now I get what people say about piss beer taste. Not much aftertaste, pretty bleh though. Not buying this one again.

11-23-16 - On tap at Distrikt Steakhouse in Vienna. Our waiter teased "when in Austria....", so I got a .31 liter. Clear, crisp, and surprisingly smooth. Clear straw/golden color with oh-so-white head. Little lacing. So tasty and made me feel like a local. When my filet arrived, I allowed the wife and kids to finish the bottle of red and I ordered another. Yes, I'll get it again when I get back home.
