0.5 l bottle. Golden color with medium head. Herbal-peppery hops, grainy notes and straw in the aroma. Dry, somewhat malty and bitter flavor with some herbal hoppiness in the finish. Fairly weak flavor for a german pils.

Pretty much your typical pilsener. Nothing spectacular about it, but not offensive in any way.

Average for a pilsner I’d say. Nice additional hop bitterness and aroma. Better than a lot of alternatives but still lacking something compared to such comparables as Brooklyn or Dogfish.

This was definitely my favorite East German beer. The beer has a nice golden color and a crisp refreshing taste. Not nearly as bitter as other pilsners. Das Bier erinnert mich an die schoene Stadt, Dresden.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pale ,clear yellow lager, with a good sized thick/frothy pure white head.Pleasant bready aromas with a good backing of fresh grassy hop, nice.
THis one has quite a luscious malt taste to it with the hops popping through like pinpricks, hops are grassy/lemony not harsh.
I loved the pleasing silky thick ( for the style) palate to this one.
Very nice Pils indeed, underrated IMO.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: Translucent straw, lively carbonation, large white foamy head, some lacing.   Grassy nose, a little cereal.
Noticing a little wax like presense, candles, etc...   Pale malts on the tongue, a little grassy, some cereal, kinda sticky.   Minor
plastic/wax like flavors on the backside.   Otherwise fairly clean, and a bit heftier than I expected.   Body and mouthfeel are
moderate.   Tiz okay, but not as crisp as I would have hoped.   Still decent tho.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2008 This is a wonderful, tasty pilsner, with great malty body balanced with light hop bitterness and a crisp finish. It’s gold with a big, lasting white head that leaves nice lacing. The aroma is yeast, grain, pine and grapefruit. The taste is nice malty grain , yeast, with strong malty sweetness balanced by nice pine bitterness, leaving a crisp, light, dry finish. It’s smooth, tasty, and very nice.

Used to be a cult beer from East Germany, available only on night trains in West Germany that used to be catered by Mitropa Sleeper Co. Definitely a high quality, even if volume produced, beer. Quality of ingredients easily detectable. More warmth (malt) than overly lean (to some) Bitburger or Jever Pilsner.
