Clear gold pour, small white head. Light aroma of hops, malt. Taste is crisp, OK bitter and just a little sweetness. Some light citrus in the finish. Drinkable.

Bottle from a variety pack. Very pale colour, over-carbonated. Taste is underwhelming but inoffensive.

Good standard pils. A little bitter and the flavor is slightly harsh. Nice light color. Not a fan of pils beers. Bottle

Bottle. Creamy barley malt and hay aroma. Golden yellow with moderate white head. Creamy barley malt and lightly bitter hay flavor with a hint of orange in the finish. Nice body. An excellent Helles - top notch.

Wait .. I think dirty Yankees stole Zhigulevskoe recipe from mother Russia. Damn it’s so close in taste to that gnarly beer.

Pleasant malty lager taste with just the right amount of sweetness that is sadly ruined by the flat carbonation.

Patrickctenchi (5078) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JAN 23, 2015
Bottle: Clear, light gold with a thin white head. Barley, honey-lemon aroma. Flavour is sweet barley malt, light fruit and grains. Not much too it...a fairly straightforward lager. Light, no off-notes.

gold color; light malt and floral hop aroma; a crisp, clean, light lager; well balanced; a good representation of the style (just not my favorite style)

Transfer from BA review on 10-23-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a lightly hazed medium golden colored beer with one finger of foamy white head. The head fades over about a 5 min time period, leaving a good level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is wheaty and grainy smelling with a little bit of a citrus and grassy hop aroma mixed within. Taste – The taste begins with a nice bready and doughy flavor with a decent amount of a sweet caramel flavor. These flavors create a nice smooth base for the brew, lasting till the end. Along with the aforementioned flavors, some flavors of yeast and lighter fruit flavors join the tongue. Toward the end a bit of a lemon taste as well as some light hop flavors of an herbal nature join the tongue. With just a hint of graininess and pepper joining the tongue at the very end a nice crisp yet smooth sweet and malty flavor is left to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner side with a carbonation that is rather high. Both are fantastic for the mix of bread, sweet, and hop, creating a very refreshing and quite drinkable brew. Overall -This one is nice and refreshing a great session style brew. One I will certainly get again.

On draft. Clear golden color with almost no head. Almost no aroma on this one. Really light malt taste. The definition of average.
