While living in Wisconsin, this was the best drinking beer for $4.99 a six, and still I find few examples of a decent beer for a decent price. frankenkitty (2012) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - JUL 5, 2005
Golden-copper colored with a small, off-white head. (Whoops... no head now.) Aromas were sweet breads with a touch of caramel and mild, herbal hops. Flavor was very lightly bittersweet throughout. Light fare... unassuming... a hot-weather quencher.

Bottled. The usual yeasty Berghoff taste in an otherwise basic beer. Also seems to have iron in the water. No real bitterness, and not much character. Cornfield (5569) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAR 15, 2005
The only thing that told me that this was a pilsener was the label on the bottle. Gold, flat, and headless, this has a very faint malt aroma with a suggestion of hops. The flavor is 95% sweet, grainy malts and a pinch of hops. There’s a sweet, grainy, hopless finsh. So, how is this a pils? Frank (4208) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 20, 2005
Nice golden color. No head. Nose and flavor are both very mild and veer toward the malty side. A touch of bitterness in the finish but with an odd array of off dirty off-notes as well.

Very light gold with fast moving bubbles in my lager glass. A little wisp of a head at the top. Strong vegetable aroma of carrots and celery. Hints of earthy hops. The taste is thin and metallic. Notes of carrots and even turnips are here. A decent pilsener, but a little thin and watery, even for the style. GrainBeltGuzzler (249) - Goodhue, Minnesota, USA - NOV 30, 2004
clear golden sort of color, not much of an aroma, flavor is malty/watery, a pils that is a shade above average, much more malt than hop, typical to midwest, gotta love it whiterabbit81 (244) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 24, 2004
Not amazing. MIldy flavorful with a rather odd taste (which all berghoff products have). Probably the worst of berghoff’s so-so line of offerings. Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - SEP 20, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2005 Medium gold color with a fair head and sparse lacing. Mild malty aroma, slight caramel and spice. Light to medium bodied, slightly sweet malty flavor, a hint of fruitiness with a faint hoppy note in the finish. Nice beer, easy drinking, but it’s curious that they would label this a pils as the similar Berghoff Original Lager is considerably hoppier-I think even Huber Premium may be hoppier. Yea whatever. presario (4916) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 9, 2004
Nice golden hue. Half inch head is gone in 30 seconds. Almost no aroma. A little sweet. A touch of hops and bitterness.
