Slightly malty, hopbitter flavor with a longish bitter aftertaste. Tasty pilsener, but doesn’t exceed the "normal" German standards. Decent and reliable.

This had just arrived at Andy’s. I love to find fresh German pils, for it is so rare. Pale yellow, clear, nice fluffy white head. The hops were very present in the nose, along with a touch of hay and maybe even a little sulfur. Flavor is nice and fresh with flavor and bitterness. The sweet malt comes through nicely. Love those noble hops. No oxidation present. Too bad it is tough to distinguish a fresh bottle from an old one without opening it up, for I would buy this again if I knew what I was going to get.

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2005 i get this stuff fresh in illinois... across the arch. it’s a very solid pilsner (no "e," as per the bottle) . i love to mix it with sessions/combos of mojo, red rye, indica, bigfoot, etc. it doesn’t just break things up, it really adds a great flavor and counter to the utter rawness that i prefer in my beer. the nose, the (very) full body, the crispness... excellent and not common for the style.

A really great crisp Pilsner. Mice grassy, malty flavors and excellent finish. Really enjoyable

11.2oz bottle: Pours light yellow with a white head. Nothing too outstanding about this one. A typical German pils. That’s not to say it’s a bad beer, but it’s average as far as German pils go. All in all a decent beer, if it was on sale I wouldn’t pass it up. However, I paid $1.80 a bottle and wouldn’t pick it over others at that price.

What a pleasant surprise. My wife picked up this beer at a grocery store because it was on sale. Good-tasting beer at a bargain price.

Hazy straw color with a head that was thick and white. A malty flavor with a balance of bitterness. This was an ordinary beer.
