ineedbeer (1091) - Oakland, California, USA - FEB 11, 2013
Aroma is grainy with a touch of sulfur and some light corn notes. A hint of a herbal hop aroma. The aroma is fairly clean but there is some light fruitiness as well. Pours a super clear yellow-gold with a thin white head that quickly recedes to the edges. Decent lacing and medium legs. Flavor starts with slightly sweet malt notes - grainy with some corn to it. A low floral hop flavor is also present as well as a light sulfur note. Moderate bitterness in the finish. Crisp, medium light body with medium carbonation. Low hop astringency and no alcohol warmth. Overall this beer isn't impressive but it is clean and to style. I may be imagining it but there seems to be some light esters in the aroma. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mircoas (187) - ITALY - MAY 28, 2015
Birra tedesca senza pretese. Aspetto tipico delle birre industriali, aroma inesistente. Molto beverina, poco alcolica, scorre liscia. Birra da pasto.

This is a good German Pilsener. It has a medium body with a delightful malt taste. It needs more hops. Compared to German beers available in the U.S. this is one of the best.

SznycelWagen (11) - POLAND - MAY 20, 2015
Strong hops aroma, something not plesant, but can not name it. Poor head. Clear and sparkling a little. Pale color. Medium bitter, sustaining. Light sour. Dry. Very light body, thin texture, fizzy but medium carbonation, long, to long astringent bitter finish.

This is a nice thirst quencher! It is un-offensive and lighter tasting with decent , dry flavor. I’ve had it in cans, bottles, and once on tap and they all taste pretty much the same. So I say it is a consistent brew. Nice beer!

cervmagpt (355) - PORTUGAL - MAY 18, 2015
Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 5D). Bottle 33 cl - Batch 12A11. AROMA: slight sweet grainy malt aroma with very faint herbal hop notes. clean lager profile. APPEARANCE: light gold color and translucent. medium white head with average retention. TASTE: medium-low malt flavour and slight sweet. medium bitterness that lingers into a semi-dry finish. PALATE: medium-light body with medium-low carbonation. OVERALL: a commercial german pils without much intensity on the malt and hop fronts.

Pours golden with medium white head. Nose is grain and some hop. Few grainy and sweet aromas. Rather watery. Light body, low carbonation. Short bitter finish. Not interesting.
