Looks like bud light, miller lite, coors light, take your pick. Then the head sticks around and there is actual lacing. You get a pleasant mild sweet malt aroma, and that is followed by a similar taste with the addition of citrus leaning toward lemon. The finish is a little bitter. I am not really a huge pilsner fan, but tgis is not bad.

Idiosynkrasie (4244) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JAN 13, 2015
355ml bottle. Clear, yellow-ish, pale golden colour with small, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Grainy, strawy aroma, a grassy hoppy touch. Taste is grassy, bitter hoppy, slightly strawy, pale malty basis. More "German" than "zesty".

malvrich (35) - durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 8, 2015
A: pale straw yellow with a fine bubbly head of a finger height. very clear S: faint bread, cracker malt notes. a slight hint of herbal or floral hoppiness but very slight T: sharp bite of malt hits the palate first. lightly toasted bread. mild floral hop notes along with a hint of citrus to round out the back end with a lingering resinous bitterness. nice balance of flavors all of which are mild. very good tasting M: very light with fine creamy carbonation. extremely drinkable O: a very nice pilsner with no off flavors or bad points. light and flavorful. a little expensive at $10/6 but worth buying from time to time. another great beer from left hand

Saw some reviews on this and was a little hesitant, but decided that I need to make my own decisions. Glad I did. The pale lemon liquid is very aromatic and topped with a soapy white head that sticks with a vengeance to the sides of the glass. Light sweet corn is the backdrop with an accent of hay and dough, and I’ve experienced that combo before, but this time it seems light and pleasant. The body is so light that it’s almost not there, but the taste is very present; slightly salty sour with an extremely short, dry finish. I’m not a fan of this style, but definitely this is one of the better that I have tried in the last few months. I would definitely reach for this again; an ice cold option for a hot summer day!

McNeillR (1391) - SCOTLAND - NOV 11, 2014
Clear very pale golden, almost solver bit of visible carbonation and a squirt if filmy head. Bit soapy tinfoil nose. Clean, light tinny lemon throughout. Punchy pale malt. Light citrus nash throughout dove tailing with a stern carbonation well. Finishes a well rimmed tinny lemon and light chalk smash on the linger. Bottle, Appellation Wines.

bluemooner (655) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - OCT 27, 2014
Pours a clear yellow with a medium white head. Aroma is sour grain and some grassy notes but mild overall. Flavor straw with some bready notes and light grassy hops with decent balance. Light body with medium carbonation. All right.
