had it at a bar in kreuzberg, very nice for the typical cheap pilsener that it is, the palate was quite rich even though we were pounding it

drougkolya (276) - Otterburn Park, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 2, 2010
Bière avec une amertume de houblon prononcé. Belle étiquette, pétillante et rafraichissante.

wiosna (269) - - DEC 20, 2014
0,5l tölkki Axelin häissä. Kirkas pissankeltainen. Tuoksussa mallasta, festaribajamajoja. Tuoksuu basic lagerilta. Festariolut. Maussa geneeristä mallasta, ei juuri muuta. Liian kevyt.

robloc303 (268) - Erie, Colorado, USA - SEP 6, 2012
Pours pale yellow, nose of a bread and a hint of citrus. A funky flavor at first, but later followed by some yeast, sourdough, and wheat. Not bad.

Bottle. I have a general prejudice against beer in a plastic bottle, but this wasn’t as bad as some. Not too much aroma, and tastes are on the malty side. Unoffensive.

aroma hops, grass, light golden with a nice white head that sadly dissolves to quick. Taste some bitterness. Hardly the king of beers.

turboespresso (256) - Port Moody, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 1, 2011
Can. Deep clear gold with decent head that disappears quickly. Low to average carbonation. Mild hop aroma. Mouth feel okay, but very dense maltiness. Taste is very malty, surprisingly so for an inexpensive export beer. No skimping on the grain bill here. Hops are there, but take the back seat. This beer would be closer to the original pilsener style if it had stronger hop bitterness. I enjoyed this beer, but it is too sweet, thick and malty for sessioning, and would be better with more assertive hopping.

mustang3 (254) - Whitby, CANADA - SEP 7, 2004
From a can: Apple juice colour and thin white head. Decent grassy and straw aromas. Flavour is decent with moderately bitter finish. Pretty good thirst quencher.

Skidds (252) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 24, 2009
Clear, crisp, and refreshing as any pilsener ought to be, but there were things that made this brew, in my mind, stand out for other pilseners. Was fairly malty and tasted grape-ish and sweet to start. Finished with a hint of hops.A good pilsener, as far as they go.

norsedoc (248) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 8, 2007
I remember drinking this on tap a a bar on Lincoln in Chicago. Seemed much wonderful then. Now at home in bottle, just not the same. Clear gold color, head dissipates. Light straw aroma, some hops. Decent body, not too bitter.
