Fairly generic pils. Slight hint of malt. Very light yellow. Slight head. Nothing to write home about.

Westkyoto77 (623) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 7, 2013
Can. Good-looking toffee-coloured body. Slightly skunky hops in the nose also some sourness, bread, and wet cardboard. Bit too much fizz, but on the whole pretty pleasant. Outstanding value. May put it on the emergency list.

Sample from bottle. A crisp lager. Refreshing for hot weather. Taste isn't all that special, some slightly skunky European hops and mild malt. Basically a thirst quencher. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SVD (1439) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 30, 2013
25CL bottle at home, Clear golden beer with a white head, aroma is strong, can’’t find what it is. Taste really soft, nothing harsh in bitterness or like that, It’’s drinkable, especially for the 40 cent’’s i paid for the bottle.

Beergeek23322 (2602) - Chester, Virginia, USA - APR 28, 2013
March 2011. From bottle. Pours golden yellow with a white head. Bready aromas blended with malt and hops. An OK beer if it’s cold, but nothing special.

Swaroga (2106) - Gdańsk, POLAND - MAR 23, 2013
33cl bottle. Golden with small head. Nose : skunk and citrus, bread, sugar. Sip : creamy with water like density . Soft carbonation. Sweet beer with delicate notes of caramel and even tart. Citrus notes and kind bitterness on the finish. Not bad for a pils.

Shaney (2423) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - NOV 24, 2012
#393 Gelbes Pils mit grobporigem Schaum. Grasig-hopfige Aromen in der Nase. Im Antrunk sehr erfrischend und gut rezent. Der Hopfen zieht im Abgang schön an, ohne bitter zu werden. Ein rundum gelungenes Pils. Der Slogan auf dem Etikett "Kenners kennen geen beter" ist zwar maßlos übertrieben, aber lecker ist das belgische Pils allemal. Die Flasche ist auch nett gemacht (grün-gold-weiß), aber viiiel zu klein! Gerade mal 25 cl sind schon sehr wenig Bier fürs Geld. Test vom 2.12.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,10,11,11,11,11 - 10,65

Beautiful rocky foam head. Nose is basic macro pils. In the mouth it has a touch more going for it - straw, honey, and a solid light bitter floral finish. Nothing special but for 160 yen a can, damn good value.

I am pretty sure this is the same with the Martens Pilsener, on my bottle says Pilsener and ABV is 5% I bought this in the Netherlands and it doesn’t say anywhere that it is imported, also everything on the bottle is written in Dutch.Bottle is also different, the usual dutch beer bottle. Anyway. Second beer I buy this week and its appearance (of the bottle) looks so fake, like someone made a fake label and glued it on the bottle of another brand. . When poured it produced a golden yellow coloured beer, with a two finger soapy head, with very good retention though. Lots of bubbles rising to the top too. Aroma is of malts and hay. Taste is slight bitter, with some corn traces and also sort of metallic. Medium thickness on the body and very carbonated. Overall, an average pilsener and with that bottle’s appearance, not so attractive too.

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2012 500ml can in Cyprus supped out of dinky little glass toothbrush holder- a handy sampling measure. Beer of the trip. Nose instantly fruitier than any of the Portuguese/ German/ Swedish/ Danish/ Romanian/ occasionally Cypriot crap I’ve been forced to drink this week; orange and lemon winegums, chopped herbs and honey, (impression of) ground coriander seed, Belgian yeast. The only beer whose aroma has made me want to drink it this week. Bright, fizzless with a low, fine head. Oddly, pleasantly fruity taste recalling the coriander in the aroma but it’s all yeast, hop, ’céréales non maltées’. A little yeast, wheat and Belgian devilry goes a long, long way when stranded in the desert, believe me. No adjunct or off flavours discernible; just a light, vaguely grassy winegum and coriander-accented wheatiness. Bad pils but not a bad beer; something like a tripel shandy, actually.
