Canette de 500 ml. La bičre se présente avec une robe dorée-soleil surmontée d’une mousse blanche fugace. Au nez on découvre des arômes de céréales, de jus de pomme et de houblon frais. En bouche le corps est mince. La bičre nous révčles des saveurs de grain, de pomme et de houblon.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can, LCBO, Beer #2 Jeff’s pils fest, Champions League ’08 final viewing one man party. Medium yellow, small quickly diminishing bubbly white head, thin, only one or two streaming bubbles. Mild grassy aroma that features a surprisingly fruity characteristic, along with some hay notes. Taste - sharper hops than the can of Wernesgruner that I had previous to this, but they do seem to work as well - the sort of malty body (for the pils style) and the hops do not work. And I know of no other way to describe it, but the finish in the beer tastes like when you bite your bite accidentally - that mix of blood and saliva. Gross eh? Anyway, this is not to say I didn’t enjoy it - the sharper hops make this rather refreshing and again, I am finding my second German pils of the day fuller in body than a Czech pils - so overall, ok, but I would have to say I would not buy this one again (I would buy the Wernesgruner again).

Pours a pale gold color, with hardly any head. Aroma is of malty grass, tastes mostly like the grass part, with a little bit of a bitter aftertaste. There are a lot better pilsners out there.

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2008 Pale Yellow..quickly diminishing head. Mild aroma of hay hops, malt, tiny banana esters. Descent palate. Brewed with soft water I think. No real complaints, no real praise..I think that would please a german.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
pale gold pour with a thin later of white froth. german hop scent that’s slightly funky. thin on the palate but i was really expecting those hops to shine. not so much though, mainly just grass and cardboard. this would be a good beer after mowing lawns all day long.

A solid pilsener i would definitely try again i wouldn’t say the bitterness is harsh on this like some others are saying maybe the first taste or two but its slight ..... a little sweet and smooth going down .... don’t worry about this one its a good bet cheers
