Tap? Golden colour with a medium lasting white head. Fine and solid sweet aroma of hay and cereals. Pleasant light malty taste with just a bit hops in it.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. It pours a clear, a bit pale golden body topped by a finger-thick, white head leaving some lacings. Grassy and fruity aroma with some faint peppery hints. Rather subdued maltyness. A touch of hay as well. The flavor is quite bitter, with a far from dominating maltyness. Some notes of citrus peel and green pine cones. Medium body, dry, and a bit hard on the carbonation. Bitter finish with maltyness. A quaffable and quenching beer that could just a little tweak on the carbonation level. 110818

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bière limpide, paille, coiffée d’un fin col blanc éphèmère laissant une légère dentelle au verre. Des arômes plus ou moins maltés avec un houblonnage herbal. Moyennement amère. Légèrement effervescente, légère, lisse, finale honnête et légèrement amère.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle 33cl, a clear yellow beer with medium head. Nose is very hopy. Aroma is very hopy, dry with a huge bitterness and a horrible and intense hops finish, very difficult to finish, a bad pilsner, hops is not floral or grassy just intense and bitter.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Originally rated November 2006. Second pilsener of the night. Purchased at the SAQ in front of the casino in Hull, Quebec. Pours a light golden colour with a white frothy head that stays a while and runs off some good lacing. Boring aromas of mild malt and hop (I almost smell corn). Same for the taste and mouthfeel. Boring. Very close to the Veltins Pilsener I just had before, but this is worst (except for the appearance).

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
My Bottom Line :
Honeyed malts and alcoholic angles swerve into a hoppy finish in this lackluster, industrial German Pilsener.
Further Personal Perceptions :
-A ring of foam circles the clear golden.
-The nose exhibits Pilsener malt, but it seems to be doused in higher alcohols… Freshness seems to be an issue, but the best-before date is fine...
-The sparsely-bubbled mouthfeel is deficient for the style.
-This remains drinkable, which is key, but freshness and refinement are absent.

Blond color, with fake head. The usual, poor, smell: corn and some dirty water. Dry mouthfeel, strong bitterness, poor flavor. Indistinguishable.
