Not the most exciting German pilsener out there. This one was a bit skunked, but still had some decent malt flavors. Grassy flavor, moderate bitterness and dryness. Similar to some Northern German pils (like Jever).

Yellow, white head. Clean, fresh aroma, which is amazing, given the green bottle. Thin but not watery mouthfeel. Citric and slightly piney hops flavor, and a crisp finish. Not bad.

Wonderful clear golden color, tastes as good as it looks. One of my favorite pilsners. Extra points for the funky bottles!

Bottle. Solid pilsener. A little more bitter and dry than Bitburger. Malt is bready/grassy

Had this and the Bitburger the same night. Got the same impression from both, so I'll simply repeat what I said about the Bitburger. Pale yellow body with a weak white head. Aroma was, er, well, beer. That's all I can say bout it. The flavor? Again, beer. Seemed like just a generic beer. Refreshing, good with food, but nothing remarkable.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Skunk over malt aroma with some minor floral whiffs. Very pale, stiff white head, green bottle, utilitarian label. Tinny, garden-variety europils – fairly dry, grainy, unpleasantly Saaz bittered. Clingy Saaz finish. No hidden treasure here.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very nice aroma for a pilsener. Hoppy, malty and flowery. Sweetish, malty and hoppy flavor with hay, orange and even a bit of tartness. Very nice pilsener, smooth and tasty. Recommended.
