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.

Pale golden. Dryish, bitter and clean. Does not match the better German pilseners in crispness and intensity.

Bottle, bought @ Ambrosett, Berlin.
Pours pale golden with a fine, small, creamy, white head. Aroma is sweet, some brewing cereal, bready malts, some grassy malts. Small prickly bubbles, fair dry mouthfeel. Flavour is mild, some bready sweet malts and a little bit of grassy malts. Fair pilsner, though it isn’t that spectacular.

Travlr (11016) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 19, 2009
Golden yellow with white head. Aroma of malt and pepper. Somewhat lighter than a typical pilsner. Nice bitter edge and finish, but not much complexity overall.

bhensonb (10933) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 29, 2007
Bottle. Aroma of pale malt and noble hop. Brassy gold color with a frothy white head. Medium bodied. Creamy carbonation. It’s a well balanced pale malt sweetness with grassy, spicy hop. The finish is more than dry, and the final impact is bitter. It’s nearly astringently bitter. Crisp and clean it is. I’d say this one has been slightly underrated*, but I have not had so many of the competitors. Quelle dommage. *But look how my numbers turned out!

Bottle. Poured clear pale color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting and good lacing. Moderate grass balanced aroma. Medium body with a smooth dry texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Soft brew.
