The bottle looks really good, the beer in the glass also. Aroma is very alcoholic. Flavor sweet and sourish, too less hoppy. An average beer.

Premium Pilsner that has gone from flavorful to just bitter yet refreshing like its parent co’s product. "The drier the better" is an unfortunate turn, while the truly world class Pilseners still cover a whole, complex taste spectrum. Exhibit A is Pilsner Urquell -- not that it is my one and only : there is a time and a place for a Camel or a Havana. But never for a clove stick.

I had this one in Italy, pour from bottle. This one was light and crisp which made it very refreshing in the warm evenings.

joe19612 (2734) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2007
Bottle. A typical dry crisp german pilsener. Pours a gold colour with a thick white head. Dry hoppy and body, with a very refined malt finish. The beer has a dry aftertaste. Good example of it type.

I tried this beer on October 18, 2007 after purchasing from my local LCBO outlet. The beer poured a very pale gold colour with a large foamy white head which quickly disappeared. The aroma was a combination of citrusy hops with some grainy backup. The mouthfeel was this, slightly watery, with ample carbonation. The flavour was slighty hoppy and a little bitter.

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2010 Re-Rate 12/13/2010. Bottle. Pours a clear straw yellow with a nice fizzy white head. Aroma has a nice clean malt background with a mild hop spiciness. Flavor is very much the same with a pleasant balanced bitter at then end. Light body with high carbonation. Not bad.

A very distinct German Pilsener. Very hop forward and bitter, could use more biscuit character. Still not a huge fan of German pilsener...

yarry (528) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 28, 2007
500ml can, 4.9% a/v Pours a light straw colour with a generous white head. Pretty nice looking beer. Nose is light malt with a nice sharp hop note. Tastes malty at first with a very quick move to a bitter hop flavour and then ends very dry and clean. I sampled it a bit warm, definitely would have been better cold. Overall a very nice clean pils.

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - OCT 28, 2007
Bottiglia da 33cl comprata da Squillari (l’unico posto dove non la vendono in dispendiose confezioni da 4 e più???), versa una birra giallina completamente trasparente con pochissima schiuma. Aroma noioso di cereale e qualcosa di oleoso/erbaceo (probabilmente il luppolo), sapore dolce con una punta del solito saponoso Bitburger nel finale (anche se meno presente). Corpo molto acquoso. Da dimenticare.
