The can that this beer comes in is made of aluminum, therefore not allowing beer to get as cold as it should. However, it does have cool feel to it. Beer itself is a bit of suprise. Considering its a German Pilsner you wuoudl expect to have higher alcohol percentage and bit more of a bitter taste. Not so. However this still comes out to be great beer. It has average white head and its golden colour. It is very appealing visually. It has a great light taste to it that has just right amout of after taste.

Poured from a 500 ml can. Very light color with a lively carbonation. Clear and sparkling. Foam is rocky and 3 fingers tall. Slowly diminishing and stays until a small, foamed crown. Fair lacing. For a very short time on the beginning there was a light floral aroma of hops which was later dominated by a not very pleasant corn aroma. Light body with a thin texture. Average carbonation. On the beginning quite metallic finish, later dominated by a bitterness. Moderate bitter flavor with an average duration. It is a typical German pilsner. Without any special experience. Cons comes because of lacks in aromas and a head. Average mouthfeel. Pros comes for a nice touch of bitterness.

The foam height of more than two centimeters thick and very resistant. Light golden color, typical for Pilsner. The smell of beer is very clearly smells of ripe hops. Very pleasant smell, but without any highlights. Taste: Very bitter pilsner with a very distinct aftertaste. The bitterness of the language is enhanced gradually - from mild bitterness to the aftertaste of strong coffee. For lovers of bitter varieties taste just fine, but the rest of it can seem too bitter

I liked this one much better than most "export" German Pilsners. Contrasting with some of the "export" beers, I found the body was light and the overall character crisp and refreshing, more like the beers actually are in Germany. This particular one is very dry though, and has almost a suggestion of a toasty quality. The hops are pretty bitter up front but without being overbearing. Pleasant, but I think I would tire of this one if I drank it regularly.

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2015 Tap. A typical northern German style pilsener - Bitter, very dry, low malts, but not underpowered at all. Tasty!

Pours clear, gold, nice head. Malty aroma, not very intense. Not very fresh taste, malty. Medium, but not very pleasant bitterness. Good carbonation.

Clear golden color with a nice spongy head. Aroma soft and bready with a touch of yeast and nobel hops. Taste bready, refreshing, and firmly bitter - as you’d expect from a German pils. I have to say the bitterness kinda took me by surprise, since I expected a beer from Dresden to be more influenced by Czech pilsner, but it was nicely balanced. The bitterness does impair drinkability a bit though, and the big hop charge leaves a slight vegetable note on the palate, which is a shame.

500ml bottle. Pours a clear, pale golden colour, nice thick white head. Aroma of malts and hay. Hops and malts taste. Finish was rather bitter and metallic.
