3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Horseshoe pub: Nice bitterness. Lacks malt balance. Thin bodied and a little watery. Crisp mouth feel and good pilsener dryness. OK but a little disappointing.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A friend of mine had his brother-in-law bring this over from Germany, and it was a nice pilsner that I hadn’t previosuly heard of. The packaging looked cheap, but the beer was pretty good.
Very pale yellow with tightly packed bubbles in a fairly weak head with little lacing. Smell was somehow "import smelling" without the skunky methyl-butyl-thiol smell that we usually associate with the green-bottle-beers. Taste good - an above average pilsner.
I liked it - and if it were more widely available here, I would gladly take it over some of the more common German lagers like Beck’s, Krombacher, Warsteiner, Bitburger.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sample at a beer tasting event at "Pannrummet" in Gothenburg, Sweden.
Light yellow color. Malty scent. High bitterness, malty a bit hoppy taste. A German classic by all means. The low score is only because of my recent lack of appreciating light lagers, this is well made and a classic, but just not right for me.

Bottle. Eh, okay. Bitter. Okay, but the bitterness is strong. Hoppy. Slightly smooth, but not a very smooth finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml can. Clear golden with an average white head. Metallic hoppy aromas. Medium bodied. Quite bitter. Slightly harsh bitterness as there is not really enough body to stand up against most of the hop punch. Aftertaste is dry from hop bitterness. Nice and refreshing, but slightly challenging as it is a bit mouth puckering.

Decent pils...not great, not bad either. Solid beer. Good aroma, head retention and mouthfeel. Would have again. Not exactly a Pilsner Urquell, though.
