Very pale color, decent head. Mild but pleasant German hops aroma, decent hoppy palate, but overall it made me long for times in Germany sampling the real thing.

Nice pale golden color,small white head that faded quickly leaving little behind.The aroma was lightly malty with some decent hopping and a slight medicinal side as well.The flavor wasn’t totaly bad but nothing special eather.Lightly malty taste with a decent hop presence in the middle and a slight medicinal taste towards the end with a sort of dry finish.This might just be an old bottle or something but i guess at $3.99/6er i can deal with it for a few more.

An Aldi’s special that was too good to be true. While this beer is cheap and drinkable, it is not what I would expect from a German brewery. This beer, at best, is a poorly made american lager. Acetylaldehyde dominates the nose with a wisp of cardboard and hops. No malt aroma. Very light colored with a thin weak head. Little malt flavor to balance the distinct hop middle and finish. Over attenuated, thin and lifeless. To much carbonation causes the beer to spill out of the bottle when opened. Not a bad beer, just flat out the worst German brewed beer I have ever had.

Deep, somewhat spicy aroma. Average head and straw color. moderate hops and medium bitter after taste. Some slight spice in the backdrop detected. I’m not a big Pilsener fan, so my grading my be tougher than others. This is one of several brews I’ve purchased at Aldis. What befuddles me is that I’ve not seen these beers anywhere else, including the specialty liquor stores. Where is Aldi getting this stuff!?!

I didn’t have much faith in this one as I bought at Aldis for a whopping 4.49 for a sixer. I opened the bottle and poured into my glass and was presented with one heck of a white head. Amazing smell of decency awaits you, and a nice first sip with a nice hop boquet. Who says the discount supermarket can’t produce a find every now and then.

Large white head. Pale yellow, clear lager. Nicely hopped, good aftertaste. refreshing, a good thirst quencher. Light and dry, thin bodied.

Yellow in color with little head. Aroma is malty with citrus and herbs. Flavor is slightly bitter, notes of grass and grain. Finish is clean and smooth. Nice

FOAMer (45) - Bartlesville, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 27, 2004
AROMA: Light aroma with apparent DMS. Very low hop aroma with a low maltiness. DMS makes beer seem to have adjuncts. APPEARANCE: Straw to light golden in color. Very Clear with nice creamy head at pour. Very nice lacing as beer finishes glass. FLAVOR: Dryness is noticable in finish, with some sweetness upfront. Very low hop bitterness for a pilsner. DMS is notciable. Not sure if DMS is due to adjuncts like corn, or if in fermentation. MOUTHFEEL: some astringetnt character, medium mouth-feel OVERALL IMPRESSION: Overall a very drinkable beer, not what I consider a great pilsner, but very good. This beer would do well as a Northern German Pilsner or even a Contential Pilsner. Low bitterness and DMS take away from this beer.
