Pours golden and clear with a nice frothy head. Aroma is of decent strength and hoppy. Taste of saaz hops, dry with medium bitterness to the finish. Palate is medium carbonation and light bodied. Decent pilsner

czlowiekwiadro (462) - POLAND - OCT 3, 2015
zapach słodowy ale też sporo kwaskowych nut, trochę kurzu. odrobina kwiatów i estrów. przyjemny, ale nie w stylu. kolor złoty, klarowny, piana przeciętna, ale ładnie koronkuje. półpełne, dość mocno kurzowe, trochę pestek z jabłek ale niewiele poza tym. goryczka niska, ale dość wyczuwalna - zioła i pestki z jabłek. nasycenie raczej niskie. bardzo średnie.

Moravius (888) - Beijing, CHINA - SEP 30, 2015
Flasche (50 cl) vom Pyongyang Shop, Pyongyang. - Schönes Goldgelb, blank, pilstypischer Schaum. - In der Nase angenehme helle Malznoten und sehr milde, schwach grasige Hopfenanklänge, dazu ein Hauch von feuchter Pappe. - Antrunk ein wenig voller malzig als bei anderen Pilsenern, mild malzsüß mit einem zart säuerlich-herben Stich. Hopfenaromen sind enttäuschend schwach und beschränken sich auf eine Andeutung von Orangenschale und Gras. Mild rezent, weiches Mundgefühl. Auch im Abgang nur milde, ein wenig vage Hopfenherbe. - Süffig und schön malzig aber enttäuschend schwach gehopft - ein typisches Massenbier halt.

tombutlin (112) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 17, 2015
The first taste was a typical lager, but quite a malty one. Finished it OK and opened the 2nd bottle and found a saltiness that had been masked. It became stronger as the bottle wore on. I declined a third one

Not a bad pilsner... But the appearance isn’t very well. Taste well with a hop finish.

12 oz bottle pours golden with a white head. Aroma of grain, grass, and dough. Taste is much the same.

butelka. wszystko to, czego mozna sie spodziewac po takim piwie, czyli slodowosc, brak chmielu, wodniste. ale zarazem tez wad nijakich nie odnotowano ;) czyli jako napoj chlodzacy jest OK, jako piwo - tylko z braku laku

Paladares (124) - Madrid, SPAIN - SEP 4, 2015
Botella. Dorada clara. No demasiada espuma. Aroma cereal y un tanto metálico. En boca se nota muy carbonatada. Tiene una base amarga y deja un final seco. Bueno.... no está mal del todo (siendo de tipo industrial, claro )

Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Belle blonde dorée, fines bulles. Bonne pils rafraichissante, houblon discret, finale forale.

Golden, medium light body, moderate carbonation. Fair hop finish but not overly bitter. Enjoyable.
