4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 mL Can. Straw yellow body with a 2-finger white foamy head that quickly settles to a scanty ring leaving some lace. The aroma is an intriguing one like a field of wildflowers dominating over the malt/grains and hint of honey, like a field of wildflowers and grasses with a nearby pine forest being warmed by a summer morning sun in Northern Ontario. The flavor is a like a light pilsner, light sweet malt with a nutty note following in the aftertaste, and a mild nutty-hoppy finish. In German, "Koenig" means King, and this is my vision of a Pilsner of Kings. Shame on that outfit hailing from my continent for stealing that title.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Distinct pilsener malt aroma which is somewhat grassy, chlorine-like and green, a little bit of aquarium smell too. Pours clear and light golden from the can and with a little bit of loose forming white head that quickly dissipates, heavy carbonation is evident. Taste is slightly sugary sweet, and I really mean white sugar sweet. Fairly neutral malt flavors, slightly biscuity but leaning more toward a dry cracker. Leaves much to be desired and feels a bit one-dimensional. Hops are slightly grassy and not much else. Bittering however does balance this beer and the carbonations cleans up the finish. Considering that many bottled Pilseners from Germany are often slightly oxidized and or stale by the time they are sold in the US, the canned version may be quite different than the bottled. But for now even the canned version is ho-hum.

Pours a clear gold with almost no head. Lots of carbonation. Not much of a nose, but a touch of honey which carries through to the taste, along with some malt and a touch of bitterness. Not a great beer, but a very good pilsner (given that I am not a huge fan of the style). A little more complex and substantive than a typical pils.

UPDATED: OCT 8, 2007 Bought this in Ottawa, an assertive pilsener and not much else, oh well one could do worse. Page 264 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide and only 349 of his classic brews to go.

Easy sessioning pils but again, like Jever, it left much to be desired. A very simple pils with little bang, however fortunately not for much buck.

Malt und hop aroma. Pours straw coloured with a thick but very short-lived head. Delicious, lingering malt flavour and hop bitterness. A great pilsner
