Golden color with a small white head. The taste is light malty with a earthy sort of grassy hoppy palate. Kind of watery and boring.

Aroma first out of the bottle was a little skunked. As it aired out, it became more pleasant. Had dirt and a little orange peel. The color is very light with an active head. The taste is light and thin with a metallic finish. There is nothing offensive here, but also very little character.

This be good. A pale colour but a taste that is terrific... a bit of bitterness, clean and hoppy. My favourite german beer to date up there with the best Czechs.

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2005 This is one sleeper pilsner. I Loooove pilsners and hadn’t tried this one till now because A) It has an undeserved reputation as Euro-macro piddle water and B) I pick Czech Pilsners over German most of the time for my personal consumption. This beer is well put together and a good rendition of the traditional dry-tart pilsners from the CZ republic. Poured a very pale yellow...clear with some particulate in it...a white chunky cap reduces to a nice lace quickly as the effervescence dies down. The nose is very aromatic without being overpowering.....saaz hop tang with a more herbal bouquet and some nice biscuit malt notes. Starts very mellow then builds to a nice light silky body permeated with a good hop-malt presence in fair balance ...then the finish is the best part of this beer.....it goes into a lovely dry clean finish where the herbal tones are departed then a lingering metallic twang of saaz bittering parties on the tongue in the after taste. This is a very nice German Pilsner with a dry herbal tone to it I think you’ll like if you are a fan of the Pilsner style.

It looks like a typical macrobrew. The taste was slightly wheaty. Not sure if I would recommend it to anyone.

UPDATED: DEC 24, 2005 I like this one. A good, solid pilsner that’s easy to drink. A good choice.

Deep straw in color with a small white head. Mellow skunky hop aroma. Sweet malt flavor with a touch of earthy hops.

Straw yellow with a nice creamy white head. Flowery hops and a decent mouthfeel. Ends bitter with a dry finish.

Clear pale straw colow with white head. Floral hop aroma with some grainy malt. Some vegatable mixed in. Hop bitterness is a little sharper than the malt, but the sweetness still makes it way through.

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2008 Bottle. Creamy barley malt and grass hops aroma. Golden yellow with a moderate head. Creamy malt flavor with a light grass hops finish. Probably the most reliable German pils that is available worldwide (along with Warsteiner).
