From a can. At first the taste did not appeal to me but after a couple of seconds I started to like it. The only thing that I didn’t like was the colour which was too light.

Bottle. Bought in a Co-Operative shop in the isle of Man, July 2011. Pleasant aroma on opening.Clear with a small head and no lacing. Innofensive and bland Euro pils but probably the best beer on the island!

rarbring (2262) - Linköping, SWEDEN - OCT 29, 2012
Aroma: The smell has some bread, wheat crackers, slightly citric, some banana and hay.
Appearance: A pale straw colored clear brew, a white small head that leaves little lacing.
Taste: Starts with some white bread, not so sweet, lemon, a medium low bitterness.
Palate: Medium carbonation, small foamy bubbles, a fresh texture, a medium body, a dry finish.
Overall: Not bad, refreshing and dry. ABV 5%.
Note: On-tap at beer samplin at De Klomp. Reviewed 2011-07-02.

Had this can from the colder glass front cooler at the Bodega Brew Pub downtown La Crosse, Wisconsin USA. Poured with a huge frothy foamy textured off-white head and plenty of lace. Nice beery, light malt, light hop fresh aroma. Color is a yellow gold. Flavor’s similar to aroma, with a bit more hop bitterness. A bit thin in body. Good beer, good value.

500ml can. Looks like a pilsener, smells like a pilsener, and hey, it tastes like a pilsener! Quite smooth and refreshing, a solid all around lager. I don’t really understand the low percentile. Rate it by style, jerks.

Bavaria pilsener.. it’s the regular beer to drink at parties in my region. Decent pilsener, like most others. Nothing special though.

Good, full hoppy taste, very bitter palate. White, medium thock foam, stays for 3 minutes. Very light, but interesting, colour. Overall, good massively produced lager.

A nice smelling Pilsener with a light clean taste. Not the best Pilsener out there, but very far from the worst.
