On tap (0.5l) at Cape Town, South Africa... Clear golden color, average head... Standard Pilsener, quite okay, but there are better ones...

theSlipperyPen (248) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2014
Deep clear yellow with a thin soapy head, which dissipates quickly. Clean nose of light malts and dry grassy hops. Crisp bitterness in the mouth balanced nicely by a touch of toffee malt. Gentle lemon fruitiness with a linear breadiness - perhaps brioche. Thin bodied but with a fine carbonation. Not much more can be said. It’s an accomplished effort of a rather boring style.

Rune (9500) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 10, 2014
440ml bottle as CBC Classic Lager, 5.1%, trade with djoeye. Pours a noisy, creamy white head remaining on top of a clear, pale golden body. Smell of bready malts, hints of fruits. Flavours of lemony hops and grainy malts. Fresh bitter endnotes. Lively carbonated. Crispy in the mouth. Not bad at all. Fine partner with the chicken food (Tromsø, 09.03.2014).
