2.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
16 oz. can to footed pilsner at home. Pours pale gold, head is light and mostly air. Aroma is hay, no detectable hop signature. Light and drinkable, if I’m going to drink a pale lager then I could do a lot worse than this one.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pint can from Trader Joe’s in Fairfax VA. Poured a pale golden color with a large white foamy head. Aroma was pale malts, pretty neutral. No skunk thanksThis is drinkable, but it’s pretty bland and boring.

2.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap in England. Pours a golden color with a very thin white head. Aroma is well I swear it is not there at all. Taste was almost the same, but fizzy and a little hops. Palate was well the same with slight hops again. Not bad but just not there either.

Trader Joe’s, DC six-pack ($6): Pours a golden color with your standard sea-foam head. Aroma is of adjuncts and some hops. Not entirely tasteless, but still pretty watery. There is a certain amount of that Northern European hop bitterness in there. Drinkable and really cheap (this vs. 211, I would take this any day). Also, it says that it is made in Germany not Belgium on the can.

Pretty terrible swill. There were black bits floating in my beer that made it very unappetizing.

16oz can. Typical mass produced lager in all categories. Nothing great but not completely horrible.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Appearance: rich gold hue. Clear. Generous white head fades in sticky patches both on sides of glass and on top. Slow trickle of bubbles from bottom to top.
Nose: husked grains leading into lemon skin, lemon zest, and an overall brisk character. Slight dryness. Italian bread crust, extra crispy and golden.
Palate: medium body and very smooth mouthfeel. Breads underneath and in the finish with lemon up front. Brisk and full of business from first quaff to last. Grows softer with each quaff; fresh loaves of Italian bread, the insides still steaming. Crunchy crust in the background. Lemon skin underneath.
Final Thoughts: overall, not too shabby of a lager/pilsner. Despite my hate/love relationship with InBev, for a mass produced canned *see above* I found her to be rather pleasing. More on the bready then hoppy side, not that far off from authentic Dutch variants such as Zywiec.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Not a great pilsner, but far better than your standard pale lager. Bright golden color and long lasting white head. Well carbonated. Lager yeast. You know it is a pils, but just barely.
