1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
650ml bottle. Not the right bottle for a pilsner, and luckily its not actually imperial (thank god) but it is pretty watery and savory, not great.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
This is an example of a lager in which basically everything was done wrong. It is slightly cloudy and very pale. Nose is of yeasted bread dough and it is buttery and watery once tasted with vegetable bitterness in the finish. It is really not worth drinking.
