Man, these Austrian lagers are alike...
Pale gold, decent head. Pleasant taste and rather anonymous taste. Fluffy mouthfeel.

Hazy yellow, doughy aroma w/ some floral hops. Taste is initially very dry with spicy saaz hops. Toward s the end the some fruity malts come out. Dry finish. Decent German pilsener.

For my 700th, I offer a different take on what I think is a superb beer. Tons of Germanic pale malt, which tastes an awful lot like their superb bock. The hops give the malt striking shape. Perfect warm weather beer.

Very nice golden color, with a long-lasting head of white. Very noticable hop aroma -advertised as Saaz, but some Hallertau? A bit light on malt for my liking. Not much of a finish, but overall, I liked this beer. I'd like to try it on draft.

Clear golden color with small whit head. Lots of bubbles. Aroma is very faint, but theres a hint or two of hops i think. Slight bitter notes with malty finish. Doesnt linger on for long. An average pils.

Pale amber with white foamy head. Hoppy aroma. Unimpressive flavor. Good cold and with food but that's it.

UPDATED: NOV 15, 2009 Import keg draft Enjoyed this in a heated tent at Chicago’s downtown Kristkindl Market. For a pilsener, it’s kind of light on the malts. There’s a thin but persistent head, a straw colored body with bubbles that don’t stop. Clean lager taste with a light hop balance, not as pronounced as, say, a Pilsner Urquell. Still, nice to have.

I used to work for a man from Austria and he used to talk about this beer quite a bit. Pours a pale golden yellow and has a thick foamy head. The aroma was slightly fruity and a bit spicey. You could taste the hopps. The finish was a bit dry. Not a bad beer. Better than other beers of theis style.
