Standard pilsner. You know the drill, a little bitter, a little malty. Drink it for the tick.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330 ml bottle, into a footed pilsner glass. Bought online. ABV 5%
Golden yellow colour on the body, with two fingers of snow white, fluffy head, with surprisingly good retention, collapsing very slowly and leaving no lacing on the glass. Good activity too in the glass.
I don’t get any hops on the aroma, instead I get a bread and cookie-like smell, which is not bad but it’s not what I want from a pilsner either.
The taste is much better though. Still the bread maltiness but at least mow I get some very light hoppy bitterness.
Thin to medium body, good carbonation, dry palate.
Overall a mediocre pilsener, their bio one is much better.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
30 cl. bottle @ home, bought online @ Mitra. Golden colour with a white head. Sweet grainy aroma with some faint hops. Bitter taste but overall a bit too watery. Decent but boring pilsener.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pretty low carbonation, light gold, straw and a bit of florals on the nose, mildly metallic but mostly straw on the tongue, medium finish. Not that bad, an alright pils, deserves a slightly higher rating imho.

Looks decent, clear golden, nice white head. Very malty and sweet pilsnener, prefer the better non-alcoholic ones...

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
30cl bottle, NL sampler. - just drinkable, very sweet pilsener which puts its quality Hallertauers to shame, as they are allowed to emerge from the all-pervasive chewy sweet malt aroma only in the burp aftertaste. Nose is a disaster, a tired old dishrag soaked in a water-bread solution. Dry and sweet in an entry level pilsener = not good. Cheap lager in fancy-ish bottle. Had to finish this for the Ms, not my choice..
