Take this Anheuser-Busch. Thats how you brew a decent Lager-style beer. Golden in color pours in with a nice white head. Malty in aroma with a nice dry finish! Go for it!

Pale golden color, clear; lasting white head - aroma: grains, cereals, some grassy hops - taste is slightly sweet and slightly bitter - light to medium body, thin to oily texture, average carbonation - long grainy finish.

I’m confused by the name game on the can. Beer is a bit of a let down. Almost lifeless in its hopping & the finish lacks that pilsner smack to the mouth that I enjoy. Feels like this can is old, sitting in boats & warehouses & shelves while other more exciting beer is being brewed elsewhere.

Blonde pale légčrement dorée, beaucoup de bulle, léger col de mousse blanche. Nez de malts et de miel. Bouche maltée, légčrement houblonnée, épicée. Gentille amertume, bien sucrée. Buvable sans plus...

Golden clear. Minimal and brief head. Light floral and grass aroma. Bitterness is nearly nice. Thin and maybe oily texture. Does it finish at all?

Bottle. Pours golden with small white head. Nice grassy hops, malt and skunk(green bottle) in aroma. Taste too malty sweet, low bitterness, thin shade of hops. Due to its maltiness quite heavy to drink. Really, years ago it was much better!

12pz bottle (North American) in snifter. Golden hue nice head skunky aroma. Good skunky lager. Not near as good as I remember it in Poland (room temp from grocery store). But I might have been really thirsty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Flaska på jägers - Fin gyllene färg. Klassisk lager arom. Försiktig sötma och en viss beska. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at Brooklyn Beet Co. in Bay Ridge. Pours a clear orange gold with small head. Aroma is earthy and grassy hops and crackery malts, with an unusually fruity profile too: something like roasted apple and honey. Obviously fresh; I imagine this beer is often consumed past its prime from bottles. Taste is crisp, mildly sweet grain with earthy and spicy finish, lightly herbal. Very pleasant.

0.5 bottle beer, no foam, clear golden color. If I wanted to show someone how pilsner taste like i would give then Budweiser. You taste the hops but there is no bitterness. Very pleasant beer to drink.
