Pours out of the bottle in a clear golden colour with low head and crisp body. Aroma of hops and grass with some citrus hints. Taste of hops, grass, flowers, grains and bread. Citrus-grainy finish. Very refreshing and easy to drink: Nice one!

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy, light gold with a frothy white head.
Lemon, floral aroma.
Taste is a floral bitter....and little else.
Musty, thin....maybe a little old.
Not exactly pleasant.

(bottle - 500 ml fliptop) Clear yellow pour with no head and very light carbonation. Very light aroma. Almost nonexistent. Light sweet and grass notes, but that’s about it. Dry sweetness at the start of the flavor. Light and crisp with a mild hop bitterness at the middle leading toward the aftertaste. Smooth and very refreshing.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2009 I felt like I needed to re-rate this given that my most recent experience with this beer was not all that good. Similar ceramic swing-top bottle as my initial rating. Pours a pale clear gold with a thin white head. There is a noticeable smell of sulphur in the aroma that is off-putting. It is not a heavy smell, but is most definitely there and gets in the way. The flavor is malt with some grassy hops, but the sulphur vapors continue to waft into the nose despite my efforts to ignore it. Mild bitterness at the finish.
500 ml ceramic flip-top bottle. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a dense white head that lasted through about half the glass. Pleasant aroma of malt, grass and hops. Flavor was again malt, grass and hops. Light bitterness at the finish. Solid beer. 7-3-7-3-14=3.4

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
American Beer Distro ($4): Pours a pale gold with a head that is as good as a German pilsener typically has. Aroma of grassy German hops. Taste is somewhat bitter, but only as much as the style gets and even less so. There is a veritable malt backbone, as thin as it might be. Very German, refreshing and nice. Oh how I love pilseners.

Lack of aroma keeps the score down for this beer although it is quite nice. Pours a clear light amber with a small head. The only bit of aroma I get is some caramel. The flavor has all of what you would expect of a good German Pilsner. Nice clean finish.
