2.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear gold with a creamy white head. Aroma is lacking...not much there. Mild, slightly sweet, bready flavor with a slightly bitter aftertaste, and a tiny hint of alcohol. Nice and refreshing.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can from the grocery store. Never had this, figured I would give it a shot. Pours out looking like Budweiser, but really, why did I pour this out? It is a pilsner, from a can, it should be consumed that way. Smell is full of corn and actually some hops here too. Taste is kind of watery, but lively carbonation, and a real easy beer to drink when it is hot outside. For what it is, this beer is good. This is a good alternative to Heineken and its priced the same. Better from the can than from a glass.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
For a pilsner, this was a really good beer. Itís just not my favorite style. Pours a crystal clear yellow with a large, fine white head. It has a dusty, lemony hop aroma with a hint of sweetness. The flavor is a yummy lemony orange with the great pilsner malts showing through. Crisp, clean and pretty dry, but again, a hint of sweetness to balance it out nicely. A bit seltzery, but very tasty.

Can. This beer is very light. Not too much flavor or aroma wise still better than the normal mass produced pilsners.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can; purchased at Liquor Mart in Boulder. Pours a nearly-clear dark gold with a frothy white head that slowly recedes leaving behind patchy lace. The nose is pretty muted: lightly sweet biscuity malt with just a hint of earthy/grassy hops. Light-bodied with soft effervescence and a crisp, drying, mildly bitter finish. The flavor is a round/solid pils malt body with a surprisingly bitter grassy counterbalance that isnít nearly as prevalent on the nose. (Curiously, they get a flavor from the Saaz that I havenít ever tasted in another pilsener before. Itís still "grassy" but itís like a different species of grass...itís difficult to describe.) This beer grew on me as I got deeper into the glass, but it certainly didnít "wow" me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Canned. Poured slightly hazy paler golden with a sticky, well-retained cap of white head. The aroma picked up ground lemon rind, floral, and black peppery notes over a soft pale malt and bready base.. juicy and well-presented. The flavor opened with tangy lemony notes, rolling into a thicker honey and pale malt base.. peppery spices were laced throughout.. finished with some sticky malts plus refreshing lemon and spice. Light-medium bodied, but it got caught up at a few points on the palate.. flow was just OK.. overall a tasty brew that Iíd drink again.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz can. Pours a pale gold with a small, foamy, white head. Mild malt aroma with crisp hop notes. A little grass and mineral in the nose as well. Medium-high carbonation with a light mouthfeel. Pleasing hop bitterness tries to offset all of the malt sweetness, but doesnít quite get the job done. Light notes of grass and a touch of lemon on the palate too. Short finish. An okay pils.

Clear golden yellow with a medium quickly fading white topper. Aroma of grassy hops, sweet malt, mild floral hops and a touch of pepper. Taste is grassy as well with some sweet malt mixed in. Pretty easy to drink with a hoppy finish.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Oskar has let me down. I was very surprised at the cheap taste of this beer. Something in it reminded me of malt liquor in a brown bag. I am a fan of Daleís, Gordon, Ten Fiddy, but not this stuff. I didnít find any of the great pils aromas, quickly bitting bitterness that fades to become herbal spices against sweet golden malts. It just wasnít there. It reminded me of corn laden, industrial lager. Sorry, I donít think Iíll be comign back to revisit this any time soon.
