1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
500ml can. Small white head with blonde color. Grassy, bland and very watery. Maybe the bottled one is better, but the one I had barely tasted something...

Bottle. This one is also a typical German pilsener. Always nice for the evening. Hops, good balance. Ok.

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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden with a nice white head. Light malt and grassy hops in the aroma. Flavor is more light malt with a touch of butter. Crisp finish. One of my favorite German pils.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a bright, clear gold with some very attractive carbonation in the body and a decent snow white head. Some very nice white lacing as the glass gets lower. The aroma is of mostly straw with a bit of citrus, light bitter hops and mild malt sweetness. The flavor is classic pilsener - straw and grass with a clean, mild, and refreshing hop bite. There is also a hint of strange, earthy citrus in the flavor. The mouthfeel is light and foamy with a bit slight tingle of carbonation, very nicely balanced with the flavor. Overall a very solid brew (for a guy who enjoys a good pilsener), possibly my favorite example of the style.

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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.
