COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottom fermented pilsner style beer. Very elegant, pale in color, dry and hoppy. Its crisp clean taste is due to the extra fine Bavarian hops.

A good Pils - absolutely true to type. In bottles, a draw with Warsteiner. But Warsteiner isn’t as good on draft - haven’t had this on draft, as of yet.

Pale straw color with a large foamy head. Lightly sour aroma with some hops. Surprisingly rich flavor with soft malts and lightly tingly hops.

not much aroma, not much flavor, w/ an unpleasant finish. Pass

Pretty clear yellow-gold color. Mild, fizzy head, diminishing quickly. Aroma fairly mild; suggestive of wheat, perhaps? Pleasant flavor, though not as hoppy as I might have expected. Feels good in my mouth; not too carbonated. A nice beer, but not really a standout. I’d probably like it more if I were a fan of pale beers.

MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 14, 2002
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2003 Clear golden color with a decent white foamy head that sticks to the sides of the glass, light bready and flowery aromas, balanced malt and hop flavors, light to medium body with a crisp mouthfeel, finishes clean and dry, all in all not a bad pils, well done.

pilsner is not my style - but this one has a enough body / strength to make it good. very snappy. good hot day beer (if you don’t have a bottle of bock around that is)

jayme9874 (756) - Hamburg, New York, USA - MAY 21, 2002
Clear, golden yellow. A decent head. Nice sweet malt nose with some snappy hops evident. The taste is the same, decent pilsner malt, clean with better then average hop bite. Nothing great but a respectable pils.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAY 20, 2002
Clear gold in color, frothy white head and decent lace. Nose malt, front is malt and lightly sweet, the top light, the finish is dry, acidic, crisp and clean with a nice hop presence. Quite a decent beer even if it is a ’Pils’!

Diego (79) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 17, 2002
Nice tarty smell as you crack open the cap. Good head. Tastes is good and refreshing. Expensive but worth the few coins more.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - MAR 28, 2002
Dry, crisp, and very refreshing. Pretty medium bodied and medium hop bitterness in the finish. It’s such a shame that in the USA Miller Lite can label its beer pilsner but Spaten has to label its beer ’malt liquor’.
