Bottle. The colour is pale white; the foam is white, airy and it forms a large firm head.
The smell is full of bread-like malt with a shade of sweetness and some bitter hops.
The carbonation is fresh and a bit soft on the tongue.
The taste is rather soft at first, but it develops into a generous bitterness and an increasing sweetness with some fine body. The aftertaste is long wits some bittersweet notes and a grand bitterness.
I found this German pilsner much better than I had expected!
