Sven1973 (278) - GERMANY - OCT 13, 2016
Gezapft im Neni in Berlin. Gold-gelb, klar, normaler Schaum. Typisches Pils in Aroma und Geschmack, moderat herb und moderat malzig, zum Schluss dann aber süß werdend. Nichts besonderes.

Clear yellow, white lacing foam head. Typical pilsener aroma and taste, not strong, not outspoken. Decent drinking beer. (Velp 201610)

Pailhead (6426) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - SEP 22, 2016
On tap: The aroma consists of mild florals, cereal notes, and grass. It’s a transparent gold with a two finger white head that fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. There are some thin soapy rings left on the sides of the glass with each sip. The flavor starts with mild sweet cereal notes with a hint of honey. The finish has light-moderate grass and florals. It’s light bodied with light-moderate carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel.

Bierdimpfe (501) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 6, 2016
Bright pale straw color with a high amount of activity. Slightly frothy white 2 finger head, lasting around 10 minutes, with a good amount of legs. Aromas of faint metal, sweet grains, and noble spices. Flavors of sweet malts, lemon, herbal spices. Slightly grassy and bready with a nice sharpness. Slick light to medium body with prickly carbonation. Light finish that lingers a little, ending with a grassy noble spicy feel and faint citrus. Overall average in quality. A little faint but still enjoyable. Decent flavors with good balance. Slightly flat with passable freshness.

In the world of Pilsner Beers this beer is not very remarkable at all. The Premium would imply something special and for me this genrally implies a richness to the taste, perhaps a special bitterness or aftertaste or even a special note to it. I cannot find this specialness in this beer but it is not in any way bad.
