3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Overall, a solid german pilsener. Appearance-wise, this beer has an appetizing golden color, with great lacing and decent head retention. The aroma on the other hand is a less appetizing straw hoppy smell. Regarding taste, its a lighter beer that still manages a fuller mouthfeel, featuring a relatively strong but not complex hoppiness. In short, an enjoyable import, and at about $6 a six pack it's a good value beer.

500 ml can. Pours a clear straw/yellow with full white head. Aromas of grain and bread. Flavors are sharp grain/hay, toast, and dusty malts. Light bitter finish.

Pour from can, lively light gold color liquid with adequate head that flattens fast. Smell metal, and taste accordingly with somewhat alcohol like aftertaste. Not a great pilsener in my opinion.

Tried this beer last Halloween and I was very impressed with the taste! A traditional pilsner beer. I really liked the bitterness and the aftertaste. Poured golden yellow, dissipating head, long lasting lacing. Overall this was great!

500ml can. It is a traditional pils with a large amount of malty sweetness so you can feel slightly hoppy. But there are hop with grassy hint at the end of all gulps. Foam is long-lasting, small-bubbling. Nice work!

11.2oz bottle, thanks to Jay. Clear golden color. Thin white head, with decent retention. Leaves pretty good lace. Looks pretty decent. Flavor is not bad. Soggy crusty bread, pilsner malts, light pepper. Very little skunk or unwelcome off flavors, maybe just a very slight bit of metallic. Moderate sweet taste, light bit of bitterness, and just a very light nice bit of lagery bite. Medium body.Kinda slick. Smooth, light carbonation. Surprisingly approachable, decent pils.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2014 Vom Faß im Ratskeller Köpenick. - Strohgelb, blank. In der Nase Noten von Petersilie. Im Antrunk frisch-zitroniger Hopfen. Mild rezent, fein perlend. Leichte Fehlaromen wie von Schweineschmalz (alter Hopfen?). Zarte Malzsüße. Appetitlich trocken, leicht chininartig. Im Abgang ausreichend herber Abgang, mittellanger bitterer Nachtrunk. - Eins der besten Industriebiere aus Deutschland, mild und angenehm zu trinken und dabei doch gut hopfenaromatisch. Vom Faß deutlich besser als aus der Flasche. Für die leichten Fehlaromen gibt’s Punktabzug.

From Aldi. Quickly dissipating head gives way to lasting lacing on the glass. Well done here. Taste is noticeable Noble hops and adequate crispness. As others have noted, there is a slightly invasive level of sweetness that knocks this beer just a bit out of balance; otherwise this could be an excellent German Pils. Overall, pretty decent, and a really good find for $7 a six.

I don’t rate too much anymore, but this beer was awesome. Sent extra by Hopscotch, thanks Eric. Over the years I have learned to appreciate pilsners. I know many people only want the big beers and the whales, whatever that means. A good beer is a good beer and this is a great beer. Great grassy notes with hops. Very clean and refreshing. Thin mouthfeel with lots of carbonation. But to me it was the crisp bite with lemons throughout that I found nice. Just a great pils. Will seek this out again.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein goldgelbes Pils mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch hopfig, grasig. Geschmack herb, grasig, minimal würzig.
