Bottle. Light golden, thin head. Aroma a faint whiff of honey. Thin body. Taste is actually quite pleasant - well-balanced bitterness with a touch of creamy hop in the finish. Better than it seems.

Aroma of noble hop with some light crystal malt. Brassy gold color with a white head that filmed. Thin to medium bodied. Moderate carbonation. Malt balanced by grassy hop. Nice level of bitter in the dry finish.

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2009 500mL can from the LCBO. The new white cans are so much cooler than the old black ones. ’Born at the Royal court of Dresden’ is a pretty cool marketing tag-line too in my opinion as a history geek. Pours a nice shimmering gold with a large white, frothy, perfect German Pilsener head. Aroma is your standard pils malt and noble hops. Flavour is more of the same, nothing extraordinary, but just extremely enjoyable and tasty. Some light biscuit followed by a dry Noble bitterness. As it warms slightly, the aroma opens up big time, and is remarkable. Tons of Noble hoppy goodness. Something about this one just really appeals to me.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2008 Bottle in Berlin... a solid German pilsner. Doesn’t blow you away with flavor, but has a nice hoppy finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2008 Bottle in Trier Germany (in the awesome Radeberger glass). Hazy straw blond body, frothy white head. Grassy aroma. Soft but prominent grassy hopping. Very refreshing, I like this a lot, but I wonder if it still tastes this good outside of Germany.

[348-20070619] 500mL. Grassy veggie yeast aroma with hints of urine. Clear, yellow body with an initially huge medium-lasting foamy white head. Veggie yeast flavour. Medium body is gravelly. Interesting taste, harsher than expected.

Pours a very plain yellow color, with a thick but quickly dissipating white head. Smells slightly spicy. Taste is also slightly spicy, but also sort of sour in the finish. There’s some hop presence, maybe a little bit towards the pine end of the spectrum. It has reasonably low carbonation.

On tap at Loreley, in NYC. More golden than the Jevers I had the same trip; I thought it tasty.
