Clear golden appearance, crisp flavor and nice hop bitterness to the finish. Always deliciously refreshing, this has been a go to beer for me in the last couple of years.

Keg at Beerhouse on Long. It pours crystal-clear gold with a medium white head. The aroma is predominantly bready, lemonade, straw, hay and cracker. The taste is crisp, clean, bitter - sweet, grassy, straw, hay, fragrant, lemonade, white bread, cracker and a touch of metal with a dry finish. Light - medium body and moderate carbonation. Decent enough lager bier.

Beerclubsa (147) - Strand, SOUTH AFRICA - SEP 4, 2016
Pours a crystal clear gold with a rocky white head with good retention. Aromas of grainy sweet malt and some earthy/herby hops. Flavor is grainy-sweet cracker-like malts upfront with a solid earthy hop bitterness to finish. Medium light body, high carbonation. Still my favorite local pilsner.
