11.2 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured golden, clear with a medium white head. Aroma of malts, cereal and some hops. Taste is slightly bitter, but mostly grain and malts slight notes of hops. Easy to drink refreshing, quite OK.

Very classic and typical northern German Pilsener with 19th-century roots, still brewed with the same water and a rare, Frisian hop variety. Dry and crisp, clean maltiness paired with a long, agreeable, dry hop bitterness in the finish. One of my favorite Pilseners, though it is said to have declined in bitterness throughout the years.

This recently hit the Ontario market and quite a few beer geeks went nuts for it. Personally I’d take pilsner urquell or bitbuger over this every time. I do like that’s it’s only $1.95 for 500ml.

Can from the LCBO. Light gold pour with a good sized white head. Very light malt and grain nose with little else. Sweet start with a bit of apple bitterness in the middle that wasn’t obvious from the nose. Mouth is thin and watery with soft carbonation and a dry finish.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dorée, parfaitement limpide, mousse blanche à grosses bulles qui disparait vite. Très mince. Nez de maïs, d’autres céréales blondes et de houblons discrets. La bouche est mince, houblonnée plus que prévu, herbeuse et sèche, avec quand même un sucré imposant. Pas de tendance de goût aqueux ici, et plus "verte" que la plupart de ses concurrentes, mais les différences d’arrêtent là : c’est une pale lager de soif, trop sucrée et sans trop de personnalité non plus.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours saffron with a short platinum blonde cap. Aroma hints of long travels across the ocean (a metallic skunky aroma that I hereby officially call "Skunktallica"). Nothing special here, just German pilsner that would probably be tastier if it was fresh. The pure & soft water description of the beer makes me laugh. Only drinking half of this as the other half of the tall can is going into the southern style homemade cornbread I’m making for tonight’s dinner.

Good, bitter pilsener. Maybe somewhat poor in aroma, only small malty hints there. Taste is half-full, herbal. Fizzy carbonation. Rocky-frothy head, poor retention.

Shared 500 ml bottle on a balcony in a rented apartment in Prentzlauer Berg, Berlin, Germany. July 26, 2014.
Beer enjoyed from a kitchen glass.
Golden color with a white head and medium carbonation.
Aroma is grassy and citrus with some floral and hoppy tones.
A crisp Pils with a fine bitter taste and finish.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Not really sure why it’s rated somewhat decently, this is pretty run of the mill stuff. Being owned by the Oetker Group makes it kind of dubious in my mind. I thought the LCBO gave up on their obsession with Euro lagers a while ago but apparently not. Taste is flat and without much substance, or let alone hops. Just because it isn’t a train wreck doesn’t mean it’s worth a damn.
