11.2 oz oddly-shaped green bottle, organic.
Pours a hazy gold, appears to be unfiltered. It has a fluffy white head that leaves lots of lacing.
The smell is earthy baked bread all the way. Im not smelling much variance form the hops besides straight up earth and a bit of cat urine. It isn’t a skunky urine smell either. It is reminiscent of American pilseners.
The taste is decent. The hops are super earthy and floral and they dominate the taste with an underlying bread tone. There is not much bitterness, only a subtle kiss.
It is interesting, the hops seem very american and they caught me off guard. They aren’t super bitter but very key to the flavor, usually a German pilsener is a perfect combo of malt and hops, this one is a bit more skewed, and not in the best way but an acceptable way. It is like a better version of Prima Pils.

Cloudy yellow color, white head and strong lacing. Aroma of yeast and lemon hops. Taste is refreshing, with a lemon citrus character. thirdeye11 (6162) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 31, 2010
(330ml bottle thanks to Cavie) clearish pale yellow, few white bubbles. Nose is absolutely atrocious. Very skunky, weird fruit, stale grain, metallic, sugar, and lemonade. Everything that could smell wrong with a beer does in this one. Tastes like a pilsner though. Earthy, raw grain, sweet, and soft carbonation. DeanF (2522) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 21, 2010
500ml bottle found somewhere in Paris. Pours a perfect bright yellow, excellent head, but could be just a little more solid for a perfect score. Aroma of hops, not overpowering, but enough. Taste is a smooth pilsner, plenty of hops but again not too excessive, smooth finish. Watery aftertaste, no bitterness. Very drinkable, well engineered. culchiem (4151) - Berlin, GERMANY - SEP 4, 2010
Bottle. Clear golden with a small white head. Slightly bitter on the palate.

Világos aranyszőke színű itóka közepes hófehér buborékos habbal,ami közepesen tartósnak bizonyul.Illata füves,szalmás és gyógyvizes.Íze édeskésen kezdődik ami átúszik egy finom komlós kesernyésségbe és gyümölcsösségbe.Enyhén vizes teste van és finoman szénsavas.Utóíze étvágygerjesztően száraz és hosszan tartó,kellemesen frissítő.Nagyon könnyen iható kis német pils,se több se kevesebb,de szerintem nem is akar más lenni.Finom. halfonit (1408) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 6, 2009
Clear yellow color. Aroma is a skunked, nutty scent. Taste is skunked, fruity, and hoppy. Has a clean crisp aftertaste. Saarlander (1920) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - JUN 24, 2009

Classic and correct german pils, nothing more. Clear palate and aroma, nice appearance. Fine grainy malt and herbal hop in the aroma, sourish-citrus yeast with some sweet start of malt, moderated and balanced dry hop-bitterness in the finish. Exciting because of bio, and not a boring one. Ron (4180) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 27, 2008
A classic Pils. I think the commercial description of this beer says it all. Aroma of fruit, malt and hops. Flavor of citrus and malt. Small amount of hops bitterness.
