Pours light golden yellow from bottle. Not much on the nose, faint grassy aroma and hops. Taste very balanced between malt and hops, dry slightly oily aftertaste. Medium body with light carbonation. Overall refreshing, balanced pilsner, no major complaints, very drinkable.

Ein nettes, recht würziges Pilsner mit einer ausgewogenen Bitterkeit, milder Getreidigkeit und vernünftiger Hopfung. Recht einfach zu trinken, erfrischend, nett.

Pours a beautiful golden color...clear and light, with little head. Exceptionally bitter for a Pilsner. I normally like the combination of strong bitterness with a light body. Aroma is predominately malty, with less hops in the aroma than I expect. I’m a little puzzled by the combination of low hoppiness in the aroma, with strong bitterness, but it’s at least interesting for a change of pace. Overall, this one was pleasant though. By the end of the cup, it’s just a tad heavy, though. Not my favorite German Pilsener, but good.
