Draught. Nice Munich pilsner style lager. Very light, hoppy and slighlty bitter urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - JUL 7, 2004
I was pleasantly surprised by this beer. I doubt another sample of it would garner my high rating, but I found it to have a billowing head with a wonderful floral hop smell plus a malt base whcih was far more substantial and developed than I had anticipated, given their somewhat thin Helles. Great. LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - MAY 30, 2004
A surprisingly average beer from Paulaner. Too sweet for a great Pils. Needs more Hop bitterness. Brodie (540) - Boone, North Carolina, USA - MAY 6, 2004
Malty sweet aroma, grainy malty flavor. Oxidized cardboard flavor and aroma. Slightly sweet. Watery mouthfeel. willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - APR 21, 2004
Bottle, 04.21.04. Pour is pale yellow, like Bud, with a medium but fading white head, lasting as a trace and amply lacing. Aromas of French bread, light citrusy hops, clean and totally unskunked. Hop bitterness presents itself immediately in this brew, although not drastic. There is noticible, bready sweetness from front to back. Finish is crisp and dry, but surprisingly persistent. A very nice example of a German pilsner, one I'll be glad to try again.

Light clean color with a big bountiful head. Pale citrus hoppy aroma. Dry hoppy initial taste with a crisp somewhat clean flavor. Dry and a little bitter in the aftertaste. A decent Pils. TBone (17565) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 2, 2004

Crisp hoppy, almost citron and slightly yeasty aroma. Urine yellow color. Steady white head, lace. Typical hoppy pilsener taste, dry, firm but nothing special. (5/274/2/9 2.2)
Pale yellow, creamy white head. Lemony, dish-cleaner nose. Same crisp lemon also dominates flavor. Decently hopped, light pils. (5/2/6/2/9 2.4)
Highly carbonated and very dry. Spicy hops. The bottle I sampled was showing its age - slight sour and cardboard. Would like to get a fresher sample. beastdog75 (364) - Brick, New Jersey, USA - APR 1, 2004
A nice, well-balanced pils which is crisp and quite refreshing. A bit "cleaner" flavored than Paulaner's München Lager. Good light malt flavors with citric/grassy hop presence. sayravai (4710) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 25, 2004
(Bottled, BBE 08/2004) Paleish lager color with big, quickly decaying, foamy and lacy head. Strong, yeasty and hoppy aroma - almost like in Belgian ales. Sweetish, malty and hoppy flavor. Oily, quite carbonated, medium-bodied palate. A nice, well-balanced, well above average pilsener.
