Sorry for the german rating, but this is a lousy rating from my "newbie" time (2007-2009), and it’s not worth of being translated. I just added it for the statistics, and to complete my backlog!
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein kräftig goldgelbes Pils mit hoher, mittelporiger Krone und viel emporsteigendem CO2. Der Geruch zeigt sich hopfig süßlich. Der Antrunk erfolgt angenehm frisch aromahopfig, leicht sü. Der Abgang ist angenehm herb hopfig ausklingend. Überraschend gutes Pils!

33cl can. Pale golden colour, with a white head with poor retention. Smells sweet, like a cheap pilsner, which it is. The taste is a bit better than the aroma suggests. Bitter pilsner hops, sweet caramel. A nice carbonation and light body. Pretty refreshing, as far as pilsners go.

A nice pilsener. As with most southern Dtuch pilsener, they are not too sweet. Nice bitter tones and a sweet aftertaste.

McWorta (1196) - LUXEMBOURG - DEC 9, 2015
Regular golden medium rocky white lasting head with good lacings. Lightly toasted malts up front with notes of grass, straw and barnyard otes, faintly hopped. Soft and rather smooth medium body. Juicy light toasty malt centre with a light bitterness and a medium finish. Drinkable.

My longtime favorite pilsener from the local supermarkets. Firm blonde body with rich and smooth barley, and a bitter hop finishing. Backlog from 2014/03/16.

Drank about half of a 330 ml. can on the train. BBF 07/2016. Nose is hugely oily cardboard, very sweet sugar & corn,… Taste is sweet corn, lightly vegetable, big sugar, cardboard, oily,… Very oily body. Macro pale lager fare,… Not too enjoyable but nothing really bad either as far as macro pale lager go, this is quite decent.

Een nogal weinige smaak, flets zou ik zeggen. Kan genuttigd worden bij een warme maaltijd.

Pours nice clear golden color with strong white foam. Aroma of hops, has bit of thet bitter aroma and hint of malt. Taste is very light and malty, no aftertaste, very easy going. Overall very average beer.
