I like the glass with the 0,5l mark (I bought it actually). As for the beer, it smells hops and cereals. No skunk presence in nose. Pilsner bitterness is not disappointing and separates this beer from most very commercial products. Lack of characteristic though, a little boring.

Not a bad brew,good color ,small head with the taste being in the usual macro range with a pretty good bitterness that gives it that little diffrence to put it slightly above a macro.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2003 Typical green bottle beer grass smell. Slightly crisp and bitter tasting with a little metallic ting going on. Decent beer but not worth that import price tag.

Skunky, of course. Light on malt but has pretty decent hop presence. Dry, bitter finish. Crisp. This is a simple, mass produced German pilsener, and is kind of boring.

I'm surprised to see the lower rating on this one; I thought this was a very nice pils, if a bit plain. A decent party offering, though I prefer the Becks Dark.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2003 Had this in a can while on a rafting trip. Malty aroma with a subtle hint of hops. Slightly complex flavors without the skunky taste you get in the bottles, but with the metallic mouthfeel. Great beer for a hot day on the raft!
