Enjoyable But sour better beers can be had much cheaper. This was typical for a pilsner, a strong flavor of hops with a slightly sour aftertaste.

I am doing something that I would not normally ever do. I am going to rate this beer based on my experiences with the sales and marketing staff that this company employs. So here it goes- THEY SUCK.
Ok, really not too bad a beer for a mass produced German lager. It would probably get a 2 or 2.2 if it weren;t for the idiots that work for the North American sales force.
WHEW- I feel better now.

Not a bad beer if you’re looking for something with a lighter taste along the lines of Heineken.

Very German, but too hoppy for my likes. Poors okay and I occassionally have problems with varience from bottle to bottle. I prefer their dark beer.

Pretty much a disgrace to German Brewing. When I had it, it was a tad skunky and flat. Drink St. Pauli Girl, it’s a little better.

I don’t understand why this even cracks the 2.0 barrier. It has to be one of the worst german pilseners. Ice cold it’s drinkable, but towards the end of a glass it becomes downright foul, almost resembles Bud Light.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2005 Not a favourite beer of mine. Not a bad drink, but inferior to most German lagers and with a number of faults - overly gassy, too often skunky and slightly too bitter. Little character either. Awful if not served cold.

Crisp and smooth with a toasty flavor. Not the greatest beer, but not bad either.

it tasted like a german pilsner aftertaste blended with a Budweiserish palate taste. I enjoyed it best with a nice cigar. Not the best tasting beer out there, but it was smooth, nice, plain-pilsnerish aroma. definitly a beer better from the bottle.
