3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear gold. Thick, white foam leaving a swath of lace. Sparse carbonation. Clean aroma of toasted white bread, hay and spicy hops. Crisp, bold and assertive. Immediate toasty malts with a hay background. Smooth, clean and sharp. Feisty hop bitterness but light on flavor. Light body. Quenching with a brisk aftertaste. Loses its malty oomph as it sits. Blandness creeps in as well. Surprisingly no metal taste, except for the occasional well water minerals. Finishes with a surge of floral hops which linger atop the dry, mown hay essence which is this brews hallmark. A very nice find.

Utterly neutral in aroma and crystal clear, this has a nice crispness that I was not expecting. The fact that it comes only in a can rather than a bottle is a little unusual in a German import, but that has not seemed to affect the taste at all. I can't really find anything bad to say about this, and the only reason I haven't scored it higher is due to my general preference for darker beers.
As a side note, this is also very reasonably priced.

Can. Averagare in the most boring way, and I like pilseners. Some honeyish malts, low bitterness for the style.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice golden color,small white head that had a good hang time then faded slowly to leave a slight lace behind.The aroma was grainy and sorta sweet with a light hop presence in there to go along with the lemony hints.The flavor was not bad,grainy at first with just a bit of what seemed like maybe burnt caramel or something.Then towards the middle it sweetens up a bit and a mild hop showing towards the end.Not bad but then again not great eather,but it’s worth a try.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light golden color with a small but stable white lid. Decent lace. Pale malt aromas with a touch of noble hops. Aromas more in the lines of a helles lager than a pils. Flavor right in line with a helles lager as well, with pale malt, and lemon grass hops. A touch salty in the finish and a clean near crisp linger. A simple picnic brew.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml can: Pours a clear golden color with a slender white head. Excellent carbonation. The aroma is fairly grainy, a light malt, and fairly lightly hopped for a pilsener. A sweet maltiness penetrates into the flavor and the light floral hops just give a short nip on the finish. Not a bad drink, but I wouldn’t have taken it for a pils.
