mateuszk (2252) - Poznań, - AUG 28, 2013
On tap. Pours clear and golden with nice white head, which stays till end with lacing on the glass. Aroma is grassy hops plus some hints of bread, malt. The beer is dry, bitter with light body and high carbonation. Leaves medium bitter aftertaste. Nice balanced beer. Very good example of german pilsner.

nickd717 (4289) - Sofia, BULGARIA - DEC 3, 2016
33cl bottle. Brilliant clear yellow-golden with a lacy white head. The aroma is nice, grassy, crisp, some hay, black pepper, bread, and honey notes. The flavor is very crisp and polished with a great grassy/peppery hop kick, otherwise dry. Pretty light and crisp on the feel, but not watery. Very drinkable. This should be rated better. It is a top-tier pilsner, as Id expect from this brewery. Exactly on point for the style, just very well done and flavorful. People must not be getting fresh bottles or something.

TedE (1051) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 21, 2016
500ml bottle into weizen glass. Crystal clear pale amber beer with large crown of foam and fine steady carbonation. Laces well. Sweet wheat nose with just a hint of peppery grain. Surprisingly flat mouthfeel. Slight sweet grain taste which becomes more bitter and grainy into the finish. Almost tastes like rye bread by the end. Looks magnificent, nice refreshing pils.

Bottle from Albertsons. Crisp malt up front with a good amount of graininess. A bit of a metallic flavor to it. Fairly tasty. Light grassy hops in the finish. A little bit watery, but enjoyable.
