Clear golden colour with low steady head and medium body. Nose of sweet hops. Taste of medium bitter hops, bitter barley, straw, hay, leaves and malt. Easy to drink and quite nice but its just quite characterless and boring.

Fuer ein Pokalfinale beinahe perfekt. Beginnt im bitteren Bereich mit etwas Gerste und geht dann ueber ins sueffig-klebrig mit einer dezenten Malzsuesse und etwas Brot. Nett zu trinken, recht ausgewogen, gut.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thank you, Kyle Durham (always number 1 son), for bringing this back from Stuttgart last week. Clear light golden amber with a white foamy hrad that reduces to a head cover; speckled lace. This is a solid pilsner - malt with sweetgrass and biscuit, joined midway through the palate by clean european hops, flowery with a polite edge, only to allow more sweet in the finish. Aroma matches taste precisely. Particularly drinkable, would be a shoo-in for sessions. As good a pilsner as I’ve ever enjoyed.

500 ml bottle in Germany. I can remember slurping down a lot of these at the Bad Cannstatter Fest back in the 80’s. Clear, pale gold color with a soft white head. Aroma is malt and fruits. Taste is sweet malt and the palate contrasts with a sharp long lasting bitterness that fades tthe more you drink it into a mellow beer..

The bottle looks good, very similar to the Volksfestbier. Aroma like a sweet wine. Tastes not as sweet as exspected, a bit dry and scratchy, a bit yeasty in the background. An average beer!

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Sweet caramel and sour malt aroma. Golden yellow color with large white head. Creamy sour milk malt flavor - light grassy hops. Almost like many other German pilseners but the sour flavor in this one does something to vault this beer above the crowd. A very nice, drinkable beer.

(bottle, with thanks to Quack-Duck) Clear, pale golden colour with a medium-sized foamy white head. Fresh aroma; slightly sweet, slightly grainy and strawy malty nose with a good dose of herbal hops and a light grassy note. Bitter flavour with a light-sweet edge, light to medium bodied, well-carbonated mouthfeel. Initially malt-accented, slightly grainy taste with delicate herbal notes, getting stronger towards the finish. clean and fresh Lager in the Pilsener style.
