3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear pale straw colow with white head. Floral hop aroma with some grainy malt. Some vegatable mixed in. Hop bitterness is a little sharper than the malt, but the sweetness still makes it way through.

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2008 Bottle. Creamy barley malt and grass hops aroma. Golden yellow with a moderate head. Creamy malt flavor with a light grass hops finish. Probably the most reliable German pils that is available worldwide (along with Warsteiner).

Bottle at Decoy, Birmingham. I’ve had this plenty of times before, especially in Germnay, and it’s one of the most reliable Lagers. Crisp, tasty hops and a light, fresh bitterness. A good flavour, very refreshing and maintains it’s quality across the palate. Excellent.

Good solid performer. Bottled version wins no outstanding kudos, but preferred as a pils / lager over say Yuengling or Fosters. Nice almost deeper yellow coloring, expected hoppy nose decent+ body.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Strong, herbal hop nose. Clear golden coloured body with fine white head that recedes to cover. Crisp bitterness offsets sweet malt with some mild spicy hop flavours. Body is light but could use a bit higher carbonation to punch it up. Simple, straight-forward and well-made German Pils. Very drinkable. Bottle.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bland lagery pils aroma that didn’t show any particular characteristics. Yellow gold with a small head. Some hoppy notes that weren’t Saaz spicey that I would have expected from A Classic German Pilsener.

Drinking it here in the US it reminds me, not surprisingly, of cheap draught pils I’ve had in German bars - nothing wrong with it, but not the best either. Good taste and aroma but a little flat.

This is a classic German Pilsner, just easy drinking and enjoyable, with decent flavor. Great for barbecues.
