Clear gold with small white head. Sweet corn aroma. Sweet corn and grassy hops taste. Poor.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours from the can with a golden straw yellow color and a dense pillow of off-white head. The aroma is dull and uninviting, though, with a musty, grassy character contrasted by some white bread. The flavor is even more disappointing, with my first taste being most comparable to dirt, and further tastes revealing a little lemon, but mostly a dry, stale cornbread character. The medium-light body and a light carbonation play off of the light, dry flavor nicely, but the texture is not enough to save this unsatisfyingly dull and earthy beer.

This beer is shit. If the rating minimum wasn't 1, I'd give it a zero. Also, all you idiots that rate beer color using more than one word (ie yellow, brown, black, red) need to turn in your testicles.

Grainy aroma of raw sugar and blow dryer hair. Foggy yellow with one finger head that lasts for a time. Hyper sweet taste, like hair soaking in a nutrisweet solution. Prickly body that is filling in an insubstantial way. Like an ice lager on steroids.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Type: 12-oz. can
Glass: Pilsner glass
From: Trader Joe’s in La Mesa (San Diego), Calif.
Price: $3.49 for a 6-pack
Purchased: April 4, 2013
Consumed: April 5, 2013
Misc.: Meant to get the lager
Poured a golden hazy color with about two fingers of frothy white head. Initially looked like it was going to be pretty bubbly, but that calmed down quickly. Average wet, foggy lacing on the sides of the glass all the way down. Pretty good retention for a pilsner.
Smelled cereal, wheat bread, lemon grass, honey, bread, tropical fruit, sour fruits and faint caramel.
Tasted like a watered-down version of the smell. Even a bit like a hefeweizen. Got water, cereal, grass and corn. Also faint banana and/or sour fruit. Not as good as the smell (which wasn’t that good).
Light body. Thin texture. Average- carbonation. Abrupt, but clean, crisp, refreshing and watery finish.
Nothing too special about this pilsner, besides the price ($3.49 for a 6-pack). I can see this beer being consumed in about any whore movie.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On price and packaging this looks like macro lager like something from Milwaukee...but I judge this to be a step and a half over the run-of-the-mill.
Not that this is actually a legitimate "pilsner" as labeled, but it’s like the lager version of a mini-APA. Up front you get citrusy-orange hops which seem very American to me. Malt flavors are subtle but sufficient, perhaps a little light crystal or simply an all-barley grist.
In summary this is my favorite example of macrobrew. Good for sports viewing, rock listening, and eating fried food. It’s what HighLife/PBR should have been.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a golden yellow with a bubbly white head that tends to vanish quickly. Leaves some lacing as the head disappears. Light malty and mild Belgian yeast aromas. Decent mouthfeel and good carbonation. A pilsner that behaves like a lager, but well worth the few bucks I paid for a sixer of cans.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear yellow gold with a small foamy white head. After trying name tag I was afraid of anything from Minhas. This one, thankfully is not nearly as sweet and is a passable option for a cheap beer. Anything from Minhas still makes me nervous but this one at least turned out OK.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Can. Pours a clear dark golden color with a moderate white head. Nose is a little sweet with that traditional lager smell mixed in. Taste is also oddly sweet, too. Bleh.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can from Trader Joe’s. Not a pilsner, imo, but whatever. Pours a fizzy, big bubbled clear gold. Nose is sweet, some corn. Hops are incredibly faint. Grainy. On tasting, moderately sweet, low bitterness. Fizzy and a bit flabby. I wish this was actually a pilsner. Mediocre would be giving this too much credit...
