Bottle. On opening the good fresh continental hop smell goes quickly. Medium yellow to gold in colour. Some decent lacing. A tad thinner than I last remember some 20 years ago without much complexity. Bit burpy. Bit dull. Was better, especially on draft at the source.

Bif (1507) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a nice head and lacing. Aroma of citrus malt sweetness and bit of grain. Taste is similar with citrus , malt sweetness and light grain in the background. Nice bitterness and a clean finish. Light body, crisp, clean and refreshing. Enjoyable beer that goes down easy.

eduardovl (891) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
330ml bottle poured in a chalice. A: Pours a pale (very clear) yellow color with a medium bubbled white head. Medium to low retention. A lot o bubbles are formed in the glass too. Some considerable lacings are formed too S: Quite simple smell. Very malty and bready. A bit metallic and some citrus hops T: Follows the nose. Crispy malts and hops, basically. Metallic. Not bad at all, pleasant beer. Aftertaste is dry hop. Nice bitterness is a point of strength M: Very light body. Good carbonation. Nice dry, stingy hop aftertaste and mouthfeel O: A beer made to be drinkable. Quite light body with a nice mild bitterness. Germans do simple beer very well... [ BA Review @ 2/11/2012 ]

Bricks (613) - Delaware, USA - OCT 10, 2014
Golden pissy appearance. Smells of fairly floral, pleasant malt and grasses. A bitter, pissy palate. It’s OK.

Smells a tad bit bitter, light ye allow colored very similar to bud light or miller light, very unique taste that is very difficult to describe, taste boarders on medium bitter, astringent and bitter finish. Decent pilsner but not one that I would buy again.

AlainG (1297) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 27, 2014
D’un blond pâle et lumineux, ayant une mousse aérée, qui se résorbe dans les temps. Une belle trace se dessine sur la paroi. Un nez d’herbes fraîches au travers un malt timide, qui ne s’impose pas et un houblon discret, qui est dans la famille du style. L’amertume en bouche est bien agréable. Il y a des saveurs de malt, de miel et plus légèrement, de fruits, tel que le melon miel, alors qu’une finale qui semble poivrée. Une bière bien plaisante, qui est des plus simples et des plus efficaces. M.A. 01.05.14 (1226-050914)

Pleasant medium-bitter pilsner with a floral hoppiness dominating the taste. Very crisp, very refreshing.
