Gassy, and with very little taste to it, with a texture akin to something similar to shampoo.

A lovely lager with a light golden body and nice white head. Sweet, malty taste with just a hint of hops. Very tasty and a typical Baltic lager style.

Overall it wasnt as bad as I expected, but pretty average overall. Mid yellow body, lots of carbonation that left a decent amount of lace. Aroma of malts, grass and upon one smell a hint of apple appeared. Flavor had a slight metallic presence and malts followed. Average European lager. Originally rated on 11/26/08

Hay nose, lightly sweet. Clear yellow, medium head. Hay, bread, mild cane sugar and skunk. Grass finish. Medium body, easy carbonation. My kind of pils.

0,5l bottle. Pours golden with medium sized white head. Malts and some grassy hops. Grassy aroma could be more crisp. Decent though.

(bottle, many thanks to sinh4 for the country tick!) clear pale golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of buttered corn and teriyaki sauce, slightly earthy, with a hint of pumpernickel and white pepper. flavour is more buttered corn and floral hops, with some notes of soy sauce and a light-bitter lightstruck finish. medium-bodied with average carbonation.

Ritzn (530) - Bavaria, GERMANY - JUN 21, 2016
Yellow but almost green with little white head. Grainy barley aroma, and buttered corn. Taste is ok barley sweetness but not much else. Not good.

Bottle, thanks rosenbergh. Clear straw color with small white head. Aroma is cooked corn, sweet, DMS, Diacetyl, lightstruck. Taste is more corn, vegetables. Low to medium carbonation. Meh. Country tick though, yay!

taunusmies (351) - FINLAND - JUN 17, 2016
Clear golden colour, white medium head. Nice malty aroma with grain. Flowery hops with notes of hay. Quite fizzy. Light bodied, slick mouthfeel. Perhaps a bit too much on the watery side.

evannell (778) - Kraków, POLAND - MAY 12, 2016
Zapewne zmęczone po pracy Kowno zapija się tym piwkiem przed telewizorem. Zwykłe, normalne, niezobowiązujące, nieciekawe.
