UPDATED: APR 22, 2008 **Highly underrated** Pours bright, pale yellow w/ a full, creamy froth. Good head retention reveals a silky canopy w/ a few spattered islands and a full ring of lace. Aromas of fresh malts and herbs. Medium nectar w/ ample soft residual effers. Texture is close to cream. Flavors are bright, crisp and clean w/ delicious vanilla cream, citrus nectar, and mild herbs. This has got to be the best tasting lager I’ve ever had. The finish has a most excellent bittering component keeping me in the ready for another sip. Overall: flavorful and well balanced with none of the typical skunky flavors present in most lagers. Thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommended. Wulfstan (509) - California, USA - DEC 7, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2008 After trying this once and being unimpressed, I have several months later revisited it. I don’t klnow what the explanation is, but this seems to me clearly to be an unequivocally all-round outstanding beer. It’s gold with a huge white head steadily shrinking to a permanent smaller head. It leaves very nice lace. The aroma is bread, honey, hints of pine, and light fruit, and overall extremely nice. The taste is wonderful, sublte, complex, balanced, with a lot of flavour and full, even body. It tastes of bread, pine, honey, hints of lemon, sweetish with light bitterness. It is exceedingly drinkable and one of those beers that fits the definition, to me, of "beer." BusBoy (38) - , California, USA - JAN 9, 2011
My dream Lager. Spicy Bavarian Malt Bomb. Who cares about hops when you can have lager malty sweetness. Surely a better brew than Reutberger. I keep getting a taste of caramelized malt in it. Decoction mashing+aging=Malty goodness. Yummy! I just found my new favorite. kingofthemtn (55) - - DEC 4, 2014
One of the few times I lost the king of the mountain title was when this beer was in my mug. It was soooo good I drank the whole thing. Even though I crossed the finish line first, there was no beer left in my mug. All other lagers look to this beer with wistful eyes and dreams of someday being it. Pairs well with a bbq grilled bratwurst, dijon mustard, oven roasted potatos tossed with peanut oil, paprika, garlic, salt and pepper and coleslaw. Don’t forget the celery seed in the coleslaw.

The unchallenged king of Pilsners. A true taste of pure, artisanal brewing skill from the oldest brewery in the world. Completely dominates the competetion.

This pours a clear gold, it is a crisp, clean lager that holds up to the best of them. ordybill (1815) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - SEP 6, 2015
Poured from a 500 ML bottle into a pint glass. Crystal clear yellow colored beer with a large white head. The aroma is big on grass and a slight floral scent. The crisp flavor of grains and some lemon zest with a dry finish is a well balanced touch. The palate overall is composed of a medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Overall, this is an outstanding beer. mikeben (355) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2003
Good lager. Similer to Hacker Pshorre Munich, it is one of the best non weiss.
