Comparable to Warsteiner. Light, elegent malt with a grainy finish that vies with some rather nice hops. Fine for a Rhineland Pils, more hop character than Warsteiner, but ultimately a bit too austere. Actually found it goes well with tomatoes and bread. Best served as the first beer of the day.

Standard Pilsener. Light golden color, slightly hoppy aroma/taste. Dry finish. Good and refreshing.

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2003 I was born in Bitburg germany so I may be a bit biased for this beer, even if I hate pilsners. Having little pilsner experience outside the world of American Standards I really found this rather nice. Good swell of bitter hoppines without that nasty afterbite particular to American fizzy beers. This beer loses its appeal a bit after it warms, but it's the best pilsner I've had as of yet.

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2007 Bottle. Straw gold, good white head and good condition. Gentle grassy hop and sweet malt in the nose, soft and slight in the mouth with some sweet grain and muted hops, low hop bitterness in the finish. Bitte ein Bit? Nein danke.

This pilsener is a extremely nice beer. It IS the classic great German. Very hoppy head.

A lighter pilesener that leaves something to be desired. Not very much flavor, but consumable.

On tap at the Gold Dust: Holy friggin diacatyl! This was like sucking on a Werthers! I couldn’t get past the butterscotch. I’m not sure if this was intentional or not but this beer was close to undrinkable. Even though you can expect some diacetyl from a pils, this was way, way too much.

A decent German brew that is not too overpowering. Very drinkable in my opinion, though not very complex. Very good with a nice dish of saurbraten and spatzel.
