Beautiful clear, golden pour with ample creamy head. Subtle aroma of bread, grain and a bit of herbal hoppiness. Smells just like good German beer should. Drinks clean, crisp, and refreshing. Begins moderately sweet with lightly toasted malts and finishes crisp and slightly bitter with a nice herbal hop. A Little hit of spiciness and lemon zest. Great pilsner and makes me want to go back to Germany. I wish well-made lagers would get rated higher on this site.

ChainGangGuy (4472) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 1, 2013
330ml bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a hazed, straw-hued body with a frothy, but soon receding, white head.

Smell: Doughy, grainy scent of pils malt, a little yeast, and some noted grassy tones. It’s a pils!

Taste: As with the nose, pilsner malt with touches of fresh dough, cracked grains, and a little basic sweetness. Thin vein of lemon with some herbaceously grassy hops. Amply bitter. Dry, crispish finish yielding both refreshment and a quenched thirst.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation, nearingly crisp.

Overall: A sure-footed, solid pils.

COMRADEJOSH (318) - Ft Hood, Texas, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Crisp clean malt taste with the light bittering hops characteristic of the style. Good lacing and head retention. Does wonderful credit to a pilsener and very refreshing.

Beautiful fluffy head on pour, and nice strong malty aroma. This is going to be good, right? Taste is weak and watery, unexpected as it smelled so good. Nothing is left on the palate either, so I makrked it down for that. I was posed for something great, and got just plain mediocre....
