I didn’t really care for this Bayern product. It gave off a metallic taste...almost similar to a coors product. I tried this one with pretzels and even those didn’t help.

Cloudy, pale yellow body. Very little head. Lots of banana on top of a light, sweet grainy malt body. A tad sour and strange spice.

Did Cougar and I have the same beer as the others at the tasting? Haha. Anyway a yellow appearance with a moderate white head. The aroma is rather malty with some lemons and whipped cream. The flavor is nice on this one with a good malt backbone and a slight bitterness. A refreshing pilsner.

Bottle thanks to kyzr: Pours a transparent golden with a thin, wispy-lacing white head. Aroma of lightly sweet pale grainy malt and some saaz hops. Body starts lightly sweet and nicely balanced with a bitter hoppy presence before a crisp, clean finish. A pretty good pilsener.
