0.5L. can sample at an anti-facist march in Tel Aviv. Thanks Ambar for sharing. Drank straight from can so metal was dominant in the aroma, taste and aftertaste. Other than that, grainy aroma, lagerish bitterness, light body and lively carbonation.

thanatosti (970) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 23, 2012
30 cl. bottle @ home. Golden yellow with a white head. Grassy smell. Surprisingly strong bitter taste. Slightly metallic taste but certainly not bad for a budget pilsener.

GregClow (2910) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 14, 2012
Can from the LCBO. Light golden colour with a slight haze and white layer on top that is too thin and scummy looking to call a "head". Aroma of sweet and cheap lager - dirty malt, bit of corn, anemic hops - with more booze in the background than I should be getting from a 5% beer. Body is actually not bad, at least while it’s cold - fairly crisp and palate cleansing - but once it warms, it starts to get sticky. Flavour is pretty much what the aroma promises - too-sweet malt, hops that are paradoxically barely there and harsh in the throat, and a finish reminiscent of creamed corn. In a word: Yuck.

Martinus (3046) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - MAY 4, 2012
Light golden colour, white head. Aroma of grass, hay and grains. Flavour light bitter, light malty, quite sweet. Short bitter finish. Light and refreshing, not a lot of flavour.
(From bottle @ local ’frituur’)

maekchu (2283) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAY 1, 2012
Can. Grass aromas -- actually more like mouldering lawn cuttings, leaves. Clear gold straw, almost no head. Flavors: more grass, with a tiny bit of sweetness, and just barely detectable bitter notes in final. Very thin. Cheap ingredients for export?

30cl bottle. Golden color with small, white head. The aroma is grassy and taste is malt. Not the pest pilsner.

AWS9 (504) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 19, 2012
Can. Mild hops, grain, cereal, somewhat skunky. Decently bitter finish. Doesn’t really accomplish much, but is right up there with the rest of the macro Euro lagers.

alexsdad06 (5865) - Ohio, USA - JAN 14, 2012
Can shared by shigadeyo. Pours a clear light golden color with a small bubbly white head. The aroma is grainy, corn, grassy; actually not much going on. The flavor is grainy, corn, some metallic notes. This serves as a tick, not much more.

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 2, 2012
Canette 500ml. De couleur dorée et claire. Nez de grains de malt pâle, de houblon herbeux (foin) avec des notes de pain ainsi que de faibles traces de maïs sucré et de légumes bouillis. Plutôt mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture aux petites notes aqueuses. Goût de grains de malt pâle sucrés accompagné de traces de légumes bouillis lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un léger goût de pain puis en finale l’on retrouve une légère amertume asséchante de houblon herbeux (foin, léger gazon mouillé). Post-goût moyen et aux notes sèches, légèrement amer de houblon herbeux.
