500ml can. Pours a crystal clear yellow with a one finger, white head. Aroma has notes of grain, pilsner malt, classic hops, and a bot of hay/grass. Taste is balanced. Pilsner malt, lager yeast esters, traditional, earthy/spicy hops, and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation. Clean and refreshing in the mouth. Overall pretty standard but that isn’t a bad thing when it comes to a classic style.

jamesewelch (175) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Notes from BJCP tasting session, 2-4oz sample from 12oz bottle

Aroma: grainy sweet, rich malt, slight cracker, with spicy (saaz?) hops, sweet almost fruity

Appearance: straw gold with brilliant clarity, off white head

Taste: medium bitterness that lingers to aftertaste, grainy malt, floral and spicy hop taste, clean, dry finish

Palate: medium body

Overall: A nice light colored Pilsner. Very clean with bitterness that persists and lingers onto aftertaste. Nice and dry finish with a grainy malt taste.

TH28 (216) - - MAY 9, 2015
330cl bottle. 2/8/16 code date. Appearance: Pale yellow and crystal clear with a nice white foam head. Aroma: Light bready malt with a bit of floral hop notes. Taste: Light crackery malt with a sharp bitterness that bites on the swallow. Floral, somewhat spicy hop notes. Mouthfeel: Light body with a strong carbonation that bites. Finish: Lingering strong bitterness with some bready malt. Overall: Definitely has the key components of a German Pilsner, and is very light and drinkable. The issue I have is that the aromas and flavors seem to be muted and not as strong as some other examples.

On tap. A: Clear gold, drifting bubbles, thin foamy white head. N: White grape juice, spent grains, some lemon, light hops with a noticeable peppercorn and light earth. Ground cornmeal. T: High sweetness, light bitterness. M: Light body, prickly carbonation, no alcohol. O: Nice pilsner. A bit on the sweet side for me, but clean and easy drinking.

Crystal clear light straw hue with a foamy big white head. Nose of standard toast and biscuity cracker grains. Clean, crisp flavor with just a kiss of toffee alongside more classical pilsner crackeriness. Crisp, dry, hardly bitter. I can see the appeal.

v.zoltan (83) - HUNGARY - MAR 22, 2015
Világos sárga szín fehér habbal. Illata malátás és virágos. Íze; közepesen testes szánalmassága belesimul, enyhén szalmás és malátás nem igazán keser? de hosszantartó. Nem rossz.

Tap. White head with good retention. Clear and brigth pale yellow. Very weak aroma, some pilsen hoppyness. Taste is simple malt and pilsner bitterness with bitter finish and aftertaste. Ligth body, high carbonation. Rigth pilsner.
