UPDATED: FEB 21, 2011 500ml can. A very good pilsener, very smooth mouthfeel and excellent taste of fresh lemony, springy hops, Der Koenig der Biere? Maybe not, but it beats the shit out of Budweiser. ____________________________ 12 oz bottle, I’ve also had this from a can and it was pretty good. It pours a deep gold with a nice big white head. One of the better smelling pilseners, this is the definition of a balanced traditional pilsener in the nose. It is one of the more flavorful pilseners, it is nicely balanced, not the best flavor, but good. It’s a great pilsener, maybe better out of the can too which is rare.

Highly carbed, pale piss colour. Earthy aromas with a typical pilsener scent. Quite dry. Not as pronounced pilsener flavours as other cheaper pilseners, more lager-y. Ok.

0,33l Flasche. Gelbes Pils mit kleiner Schaumkrone. Leichter Geruch nach Malz, wird im Geschmack bestätigt, wirkt leicht metallisch zum Schluss.

prawlie (1283) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2015
Bottle at the Atlantic Airport Lounge in Munich. Golden and gassy, with a fair head. Dry, straw aroma, typical pils aroma. Straightforward for its style, drinkable but no frills. That said it was actually better than I was expecting.

A light yellow beer, a head is small and white. Aroma has light malts, some grass, slightly aromatic, pure. Taste is strongly malty, quite mild bitterness that is still long, some grass. Medium bodied, slightly harsh carbonation. Very simple pils, strong maltyness and mild bittterness.

jamaty (1246) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 17, 2015
Aspecto de pilsen típica. Muy clara. Aroma delicado a malta. Sabor agradable, sin destacar especialmente. Una buena pilsen, sin más, bebible y menos amarga que la media.

glennmastrange (2431) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUN 15, 2015
Bottle. Light to moderate grain for the malt, herbs for the hops, and faint paper in the background. Head is small, fizzy, white with no lacing and is fully diminishing. Color is sparkling clear light amber. Flavor starts lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes moderately to heavily bitter. Palate is light, watery with a fizzy carbonation and finishes dry. Light and crisp, and a tasty Pilsener

11.2 oz. bottle from old notes. Pours a clear light golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have grainy malts, some mild Noble hops, grass, light body, pretty basic and nothing to repeat.
