Lack of aroma keeps the score down for this beer although it is quite nice. Pours a clear light amber with a small head. The only bit of aroma I get is some caramel. The flavor has all of what you would expect of a good German Pilsner. Nice clean finish. asheft (3082) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 4, 2010
Sweet hay aroma with some nice, very fresh base malt and pleasant noble hops. Clear straw appearance with a thin, white cover on top. Sweet base malt that is a touch soapy and sort of weak, but still gentle and with some herbal noble hops. Light body, medium carbonation, gentle bitter ending.

Light straw/gold color; Medium body; Aroma of malt, hay/cereal, & some hops; Flavor of slight sweet malt, grain/hay, light hops, and some citrus; Finish is slightly bitter; Overall, pretty decent. glennmastrange (2868) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - NOV 19, 2009
Bottle. Light aromas of straw, dried grass and a hint of pepper. Head is small, frothy/bubbly white with thin but good lacing and is mostly diminishing. Flavor starts lightly acidic, and is followed by a long, faintly sweet and acidic and a lightly bitter finish. Palate is light to medium, watery with a lively carbonation. Not very complex like most Classic German Pilseners, but this was an easy drinker. Kristall-König (2820) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - SEP 14, 2011
Hopfig-herber Geruch, würzig. Geschmacklich eine schöne durchgehende Bitterlinie untermalt von ausgewogener Würze. Im Abgang legt der Hopfen nochmals zu und zieht lang ins Finish hinein.
Sehr angenehmes Pils. Test vom 6.6.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche
heavy (2817) - Split, CROATIA - MAR 30, 2010
18/03 0.5 l fliptop bottle. It pours pale yellow body with medium sized head. Lemony hop aroma, some vegetable malty notes. Flavor is fine though, has fine herbal bitterness and weaker honey and biscuit malt. It’s medium bodied with nice bitterish finish. Simple, but not bad at all for my taste. corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2012
Pours a hazy golden yellow color with a two finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Large streaks and chunks of soapy lacing left behind.
Slightly earthy aroma with spicy hops, grass and straw countered by bready yeast, light fruit and pale malt. Some sticky pine needle followed by some apple, pear and pilsner malt.
Medium bodied with a crisp, spicy hop bite that lingers over the sweeter notes and pale malts into a dry finish. A decent amount of dry, earthy bitterness that dominates the flavor. Hints of grass and straw countered by some light fruit, bread, biscuit and pilsner malt. There’s a subtle metallic presence that lingers after the finish hurting the drinkability a bit. A bit hopper than expected but pretty standard.

Nice swing top bottle. Good aroma for the style - malty sweet plus a dash of lemon. Pale malt dominates the flavor with hops on the muted side. Better than expected - an above average pils. 17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 28, 2011
I like this beer. Very bready, lightly metallic, soft, not super crisp but more like a helles. I like the breadiness, especially in the aroma, quite floral, bit soapy. I enjoy it. Thin and quaffable, bit chalky. fidelis83 (2437) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAY 23, 2012
Pours yellow-gold with a 3 finger, fluffy bright white head that has great retention and leaves nice lacing. Aroma is full of cereeal grain, floral and spicy hops, a bit of bready yeast and sweet hay. Flavor is more cereal grain, light fruitiness, floral and light spicy hops, a little too much malty sweetness and light planty hops. Palate is light bodied with a lightly creamy entry, moderate strength carbonation and off dry, slightly chalky finish. Decent Pils overall, a little on the sweet and fruity side though.
