Very light straw color with a fluffy white head. Aroma of hops with a malt undertone. Mild malty flavor with a fairly long dry finish. A nice pils.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2005 500ml euro-can (import). Put a pale straw colored lager in my Pilsner flute....moderate head but good lacing on the glass sides. Moderate carbonation. This German Pils has a good/different aroma...instead of the expected Saaz floral bouquet we get a deep blast of herbal-musty German hop varieties over a sweet bready undertone...very nice. As a Pils hound my palate is over worked with the expected Bohemian/Czech profile pils... I’m beginning to be more partial to the Northern German Pilsners...this one did not disappoint....good biscuity malt spine balanced with the marvelous blend of herbal German hop varieties one would expect in a rich Marzen...I like the mix...this is a very good, and well made, Pilsner...fresh refreshing slightly dry but with enormous taste.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light straw color with a wispy white head. Herbal and grassy noble hops, a touch to grassy and quite weak in the malt nose. Dry malt and a decent floral hops balance. A decent mid echelon pils.

The Aroma is not the most appealing but definitely not too bad. I have never liked pilsner beer, especially Labatt Blue..but this beer seems to have a smooth pilsner flavor that is not over powering and it does not leave an overpowering after-taste. If you like Pilsner beer than I recommend this beer over Molson and Labatt! Surprised that this beer came from Aldis, I was worried it was going to taste like skunk urine! But i was wrong. Cheers

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear yellow colour with frothy white head. It is a well made (northern style) german Pilsener, which is available throughout Germany. Medium bodied, hoppy dry taste with spicy crispy finish. One of the better average Pilseners.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Thin and slightly oily taste. Moderate and quickly disappearing head. Slight but pleasant aroma. Clear, pale straw appearance. A little acrid on the palate for my taste, and overall a little disappointing.

One bottle acquired in a trade. Poured a large white head that stayed around awhile. Nice light hops aroma. Very pale in color. Light hops flavor throughout. A decent Pils.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
NIce hop aroma of typical German pils. Head retention not that great. Nice & white and rocky but didn’t last very long. Beer was very drinkable. One of the better German pils available, though not near a Bitburger or Jever.

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Smells funky, piss in color with meringue head - in appearance and flavor. At least it taste better than it looks or smells. Has a slight spice to it. Taste lingers pleasantly - overall an average beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Mildly grainy pils malt aroma with spicy and flowery hops and just a touch of DMS. Clear light golden body is topped by a decent, fine-bubbled white head that lasts nicely. Mild, crisp bitterness with a slight grainy flavour to the very dry, yet malty flavour with some floral hop flavour. Bitterness lingers pleasantly on the tongue. Medium-light body while moderately high carbonation is engaging on the tongue. Seems to be a very good example of the style. Can (LCBO - Nov. 2004).
