Traditional light-gold appearance, hop/grain aroma and standard palate. Flavour begins a little watery, with your typical hop/malt balance, but there’s a great swell of bitterness towards the end of the evolution cycle. Still quite average, but at least it finishes on a good note. davefortier (17) - CANADA - MAR 27, 2007
Une bonne bière. C,est pas un style que j’apprécie beaucoup mais elle est pas mauvaise... downender (8659) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2007
Straw coloured with a rocky, white head. Floral/grassy aroma with moderate carbonation. Clean, hoppy taste with a long, dry finish. A very good German pils. Drjohnrock (805) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 16, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2012 Hmm, furrowed brow time. This very pale brew can’t decide if it wants to be Warsteiner or Pilsner Urquell when it grows up. Better than the former, well behind the latter. Twelve ounce bottle from Aldi. Wonder if this tastes the same as the version sold in Germany, or if it the taste has been "adjusted for the American market" (i.e., dumbed down).

Well done plenty of malt and hops for a crisp assertive pils. Bought at the Ottawa LCBO and there was German man there telling it was the best beer in the world. I chose not to believe him. Page 492 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide.

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2007 Bottle from Aldi. Strong hop aroma. Possibly too much Sazz hops. The appearance is a pale yellow. The flavor was metallic, honey, with some notes of cherry set against a woody grainy background. Palate was thin and carbonation was harsh. Not a beer that I would buy again with my own money if I could help it. Probiere (992) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 25, 2007
My gf’s dad bought a 12 pack of this stuff from Aldis when he was in for a visit and graciously left us the remainder.....I kinda wish he hadn’t. A stale, papery-thin, stale-ly bitter rendition of a pilsner, with little backing malt and no redeeming hop crispness or flavor. About the lightest I have ever seen any beer outside of a macro.

Light yellow colored, little white head. Crispy German aroma with hops and malty lemon. Thin to medium bodied. Flavor is richer with also good hops and lemony tones. Basic pilsner, slightly boring though. daniel0017 (449) - Yukon, CANADA - JAN 21, 2007
From the 500mL can. Aroma of cattle ranch. Has an even, short bubbly white head on a golden, carbonated body. Flavor was actually pretty good considering the aroma: Heavy malted barley flavor (for a pilsner), hops and some grain with a bitter, well balanced finish. Not the best but pretty good. faroeviking (10913) - FAROE ISLANDS - JAN 21, 2007
Pils Legende. Bottle. Golden with a small white head. Aroma of grains and hops. Flavour is fresh, bit crisp, some maltiness, nice hoppiness. Bitter bit sweet finish. A typical German pilsener.
