3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This stuff is a solid okay. Nothing wrong w/ it and no off flavors but not really flavorful. It does have a nice perfumy hop character and interesting creamy texture but beyond that it strikes me as a little bit bland. Not the worst thing in the world, I must admit. I wouldn’t complain about knocking a few of these back in whatever country it’s being made in currently.

After picking this up, along with some Baltic skunk juice, from an ethnic grocer that’s going out of business, I find that in over 3 years, I’ve only had one new rating from Germany. So this is worth something, especially as it ticks off one more German state for me.
For a brewer in the former East Germany, they’re kind of far away to be slapping the word "Belgium" all over their can. Does anyone else think this has a Belgian character or just a neighborhood cheap German beer?
Well, this does pour a decent pils smell, and the beer is a clean, golden color under a spongy head that’s leaving some lace behind. Gotta say the taste is not bad, just not noticeable. Yes, it does start to leave a sugary taste on my mouth past the middle of the .5 L can, and the alcohol does start to hit a little hard. For a cheap beer that’s usually found among the Baltic swill, I would have not trouble setting out a bucket of these at a gathering.

0.5L can thanks to my good beer buddy Cheap. I was surprised by the low ratings and comments on this one, I loved this German pilsner. Clean crisp taste, I could easily do another!!

Found a 24 pack of 0.5L cans at my local distributor, Beaver Co Beverage for $19. Even warm from the can, this is not a bad brew, fairly smooth and easy going. Can’t wait to try it cold. Does have some of tat mild euro pils smell when you first pop the can but its all smooth sailing after that. Glad I stopped over at the local PALCB distributor today! This was pretty good compared to that bitter nebraska IPA I had earlier, quite refreshing.

Bought these consistently for a month on sale@ 20 bucks for 24 16oz. Drank many with family and friends and all thought were good for that price point. Pours pale yellow with huge carbonation of white suds. Aroma sweet with slight say pilsener tang. Flavor likewise reflection. Good medium mouthfeel, some dry grassiness. Overall a worthy buy if price is right.
