Bland lagery pils aroma that didnít show any particular characteristics. Yellow gold with a small head. Some hoppy notes that werenít 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 Iíve 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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear golden colour with a foamy white head. Mild herbal aroma. Thin, watery body. Mild flavour with a faint hint of malt and a very dry finish. Refreshing, but rather lifeless.

As the description says, there is a good tart, hop bitterness in the first sip, but the finish was lacking. Ended up dry and watery with no flavor. Not bad overall, but not great.

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2004 Brown Bottle (Plastic). Distinctive honey aroma. Honey carries in to the flavour with a big bitterness. Decent pils.

Pours light yellow with a foamy white head. Comes in a nice brown bottle so thereís not a trace of skunk in the aroma. Aroma is mostly malt with some hops. Smells very clean and crisp. Flavor is malty, creamy, with some nice hop notes in the finish. Overall, I find this beer very agreeable, possibly my favorite of this style.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
nice appearance with lasting creme. Ok smell. But thatís the end of this. Metalic in can taste. Strong carbonation and water. The type of beer you expect in the summer at a soccer game.

My sample said "Premium Beer", not Premium Pils. I'm not sure if they're the same. I paid $2.88 for a 4 pack of 16 ounce cans at Discount Liquors in Milwaukee, WI. 04/25/04.
Hearty aroma. Medium yellow color. Average head. EXCELLENT, SIMPLY EXCELLENT bitter flavor and after-taste. It's not TOO bitter, mind you. But it's also not wimpy and light like most American brews. Very good character. I really, really like this beer. You can chug it. You can sip it. It goes well with food. An all around great beer. Strong presences of hops.
This is my current favorite, and may end up my favorite of all time!
