Average for a pilsner Id 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.

Draught: Faint, sweet, herbal, earthy aroma. Poured light gold in color with a medium-sized rocky, creamy, white head. Clear. Lightly sparkling. Flavor of Pils malts, lemon, herbs, Hellertau hops, and honey. Light body. Sticky texture. Average to lively carbonation. Long, herbal, honey finish.

500ml bottle. 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.

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.

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2008 This is a wonderful, tasty pilsner, with great malty body balanced with light hop bitterness and a crisp finish. Its 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. Its smooth, tasty, and very nice.

BierFilz (9) - GERMANY - DEC 28, 2007 does not count
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.

Drinkable beer with light golden color, small, but good head. Little sweety, little hoppy, light carbonation. A good hoppy aftertaste. Not a big one, but you can drink it easy:)

very light colored pilsner; light aroma; clean and crisp but strong hops in taste and aftertaste; needs more malts blended in; not impressed; would buy other pilsners over this one.

Overall...not bad. Poured golden with a medium head in a pilsner glass. Aroma of pale malt. Taste of malt with a sharp bite of hops.
