3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Had this on tap and was impressed by the huge creamy head. Nice mouthfeel that matched the creaminess of the head. Very reserved on the hops, but well balanced and refreshing. Had a slight bubblegumminess that gave it a little complexity.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Had this right after a pisner urquell and immediately was away of much more dryness. the aroma is malty but accented with flowery hops, it was a very clean aroma. the very clear, light golden body held a creamy white head for quite some time. the malty flavor was accenteed, just like in the aroma by hops. on the second sip i got a lot more bitterness from the hops than in the first sip, probably had to cleanse my palate a bit better. the light-medium body was accompanied by moderate to high carbonation, this helped create the sensation of dryness in this beer. the very clean finish was very welcomed. i found this beer to be just a little thin feeling and tasting.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale yellow with a slight amount of carbonation. Thin white head that doesn't last. Slight hoppy aroma. Decent flavor for a pils and it's mildly bitter. Not bad for a pilsner and very refreshing.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Label says "Premium Beer," not "Premium Pils," but it appears to be the same thing. Small white head recedes quickly to nothing, very light straw-colored body, nose is slightly sweet. I didn't find this to be terribly hoppy or bitter as others have; medium bitterness, typical German light lager flavors. Some herbal notes and a slight spicy zing with an underlying malt sweetness.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: JUN 24, 2003 My first impression was very bad. I've been surprised by the bitterness. After a while, i discovered a quite interesting complexity in taste.
But the bitterness is too strong for this kind of beer and there's still a strange taste.

An easy drinking pilsner, offering little divergeance from the usual german lagers. Quality is the clear emphasis here.

UPDATED: APR 21, 2005 Good taste. Looks like a simple domestic light beer, though. Overall, pretty good beer, but a definetely weak finish. Great for a hot-working day.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A good pilsener: golden colour with a soon disappearing head. The flavour is really hoppy and bitter, with a persistent aftertaste. Good and refreshing!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This one pours a clear, golden yellow color with a small white head that rapidly dissipates into nothing. The aroma is mildly hoppy with a slight sweetness from the malts. Light bodied, the flavor is malty up front, with a clean and crisp finish that is slightly bitter from the hops. This is a nice pilsner, just enough hops to make it interesting. Smooth and very thirst quenching.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Suprising flowery and pleasing aroma for a pilsener. Pours a light yellow, low carbonation, thin head. Not much in the way of flavour, but maybe that's the point. Has a dry, crisp finish. Lacks character and complexity.
