UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 Pours straw in color, slightly hazy with a nice head that stays a while and leaves some lacing on the glass.
Grainy, bready smell that resembles a helles more then a pilsener.
Taste is also bready and very well balanced. Nice bitterness in the aftertaste.
Light bodied with just enough carbonation for my taste. Very drinkable.
Overall, a good unfiltered lager. I really start enjoying this style more and more.

50cl bottle @ home. Clear golden color, medium to full sized white head. Smell and taste some malts, some bitter, quite crisp. I must adnmit I just went for a 6 km run so I guess virtually any beer would have tasted nice, but still this is a nice thirstquencher.

Thanks to quack-duck for that one! Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass zippy, small head. Starts dry-malty, more and more hoppy-grasy, light bitter background. Some fruity notes of lemon. Finish less fruity, more dry-malty. Not bad!

Bottle. Golden yellow color, fine white head. Fresh, fruity, floral hop aroma. Medium sweet taste, high bitterness. Grainy, bready aftertaste, slight floral touch. Nice, full body, medium to fresh carbonation.
Good Pils, it is not too sweet and raises itself from the rest.

0,5 l Flasche. Orangegelbes, trübes Bier mit viel Schwebfracht, weißer Schaum, tolle Gardine. Schön herb und frisch mit leichtem Zitrusgeschmack, im Abgang kommt das Bittere ganz gut durch.

Soft beer, with nice bready malt, spicy hop balance (but a little milquetoast in the process - just not enough flavor going on). Nicely conditioned, as seems to be the case with Engel beers. Recommended by a very nice waitress at Katedra, a must beer bar in Krakow. Nicer in aroma than flavor, the exact opposite of the much better Engel Premium Herbfrisces Pils.
