I've tried it on tap and bottled...nice malty pilsener, but not enough hoppy for my taste.

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.

Une autre petite bière de correction. Allez, je suis en Allemagne alors qu’un de mes élève lui, est dans le champ! Liquide jaune paille à la tête moyennement mousseuse. Effervescence moyenne et je dirais faible pour le style. Une bière typiquement allemande où les malts légers se font taquiner par de doux houblons européens et floraux. Picottement agréable sur ma langue attribuable à une effervescence plus marquée dans ma bouche que dans mon verre. Délicate amertume en fin de bouche. Saveurs discrètes, une bière qui se boit tout de même très bien en ce chaud après-midi de juin.

Pours clear gold with a decent white head. Aroma is grain, grass, and fruit. Taste is a balance of sweet and bitter with a metallic note. Light body with medium carbination. Good beer.

I drank this beer during one of my trip in Freiburg. It is a classical pils, yellow body and gold, regular carbonation, white and thin foam. The taste is watery, bitter and hop, malt but it is the hop that it is dominated like almost all the real pils, drinkable. I drank this beer in a restaurant on the tap, with a nice view of the city.

ComradeK (1100) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 21, 2016
Draught at The Bavarian Bier Cafe. Pours a clear medium gold, with a large white head, which lasts pretty well and leaves good lacing. The aroma has floral and spice hops and grainy malt. Spicy and light floral hops up front give way to caramel and white bread malt in the mid-palate. More spice finishes it off. A reasonable but uninspiring pilsner.

Aus der Flasche. Goldgelbes klares Bier mit weissem festen Schaum. Herb getreidig im Duft und Geschmack. Nichts Besonderes.

sound67 (604) - Offenbach, GERMANY - SEP 18, 2015
Bright, clear yellow golden, medium white head. Nose is typical for industrial Pilsner. Wet plaster, grain, wee hops. Medium body, not watery. Bitter hops at first, with grass, grain and son herbs. Middle is increasingly bitter, grainy. Hoppy, bitter finish and hops, plaster aftertaste. Typical mass produced pilsener, but not bad of its kind.
