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.

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.

Gelb-pilsig. Grasig hopfig in der Nase, frisch. Am Gaumen herb, bitterer als vergleichbare Macro-Pilsener aus Deutschland. Leichte Süße vom Malz, gut. Körper recht schmal, erfrischend.

Sweet malt, grassy hop. Rich sweet malt, pine hops, touch of mint, clean finish. Fairly simple but a solid classic pils.
