Pours a crisp, clean golden color into the pilsner glass. Hoppy, crisp aroma. A decent pils that doesn’t distinguish itself much from others. Clean, crisp taste...but not very exciting.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light aroma of noble hop with some malt behind it. Golden color with a fluffy white head that sort of laced. Near medium in body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is noble hop over light malt. The bitter builds into the finish. It’s not exactly crisp. Fits the style, but not as sharp as Urquell. Definitely a decent pils.

A 1.7/5 is probably being generous. Close your eyes and this could be Budweiser with a slightly better almost ricey finish. Not buying this again.

straw colored, rocky white head. aroma is of wet paper sack and lightly spiced hops. flavor is lightly spiced and a bit earthy. not bad but not terribly interesting.

BOTTLE: pours very clear golden with white head and effervescent bubbles rising. Aroma and appearance are nice for a pils. Nice body at finish as it rolls down the tongue. Short finish. Not bad for a pils.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2008 Beer club selection. Good looking pilsener, poured a clear pale yellow with a brilliant white head.
Nothing special in the aroma - slight bready maltiness offset by slightly spicy hops.
Just a sense of sweet maltiness and no hoppiness to speak of.
Very nice carbonation on the light body.
Not a great beer, but certainly very refreshing and drinkable.

Very matter of fact drinking beer. It’s a Pilsner yes, but there’s many others which have more style and flavor. Weak aroma and that nice easy drinkability. Bone dry finish is fine, but the level of hop flavor is very shallow. Any flavor present is very hesitant to rise up and be heard, tasted or seen. Feels like a discount beer to my senses.
