0.5l bottle. Clear golden body, white head. Aroma of sweet bread, apples and some floral hops. Taste reflects the aroma. Balanced, easy drinking beer. Probably a tiny bit too weak bodied, but I like it.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle, bought in Germany. Poured into a footed pilsner glass, ABV 4.8%.
I poured it while scratching my head as to why they are mentioning 12% less alcohol than a "normal" pilsner when most of the german beers are less than 5% alcohol, so actually it has the same alcohol as any other german pilsner. The rest, about less calories and such, I couldn’t care less since I posses the power of drinking without getting any weight. Back to the beer, it has a slighty pae golden yellow colour on the body, with a bit more than one finger of white, soapy head on top. Nice activity in the glass. Head has a good retention and it leaves some light lacing on the glass.
Bad aroma of dirty hay and rubber.
Taste is not that bad on the other hand. Nothing extra ordinary, a usual pilsner taste, some malts, a bit of apples and mildly bitter on the aftertaste, it is quite pleasantly drinkable.
Medium thin body, carbonation above average. Nice dryness on the palate.
Overall, not that bad, if they could only do something about the aroma.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hoppy pilsener. Faint aroma but taste has a snappy, tangy character. Appearance is normal for the style, mouthfeel leans to watery. Nothing spectacular here, but if you like bitter beers, this may be to your liking.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
A kinézete alapján akár egy minőségi pils is lehetne, de ez bizony nem az! Furcsán füves, malátás, illata van, amibe keveredik egy adag több napja a sarokban felejtett, nedves mosogatórongy szúrós, dohos szaga és egy kis ecetes savanyúság. Olyan íze van, mintha kukoricadarát áztattak volna, élesztős, enyhén ecetes vízben, öntöttek volna hozzá gyenge minőségű malátát és egy marék csalánt. Összehúzza a szánkat és kellemetlen, savanyú szájíz marad utána. Pár korty után kiöntöttem...

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden blonde, small head, fine bubbles. Aroma is like a pilsner, grains, some malts. Smooth taste, slightly bitter, not sweet at all, that’s a plus point for me.
