COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer has a somewhat more noticeable bitterness, and its mixture of malts and rice makes it rather dry. With a refreshing feeling, balanced bouquet and full body, it works very well as an accompaniment to food. Pilsen has been on the national beer market since 1888.

JoeinDahlem (1329) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 12, 2010
Bright and clear yellow-gold with a fairly generous white head. Even getting some textbook lace. Delicate, sweetish cereal nose with hints of corn and metal. Light bitterness but thankfully quite dry compared to Bavaria or Imperial for example, which can both be a touch sweet. Some nutty notes in the backtaste. Absurdly clean. If you think you are craving one of these, in fact your body may be crying out for some nice cool water. Which is probably the secret of light pale lagers in the first place.

DSG (6105) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - FEB 23, 2010
Bottle sample at a tasting. Thanks zvikar. Clear golden. Aroma has some sweet graininess (corn) and some hops with light flowery and grassy hints. Sweetish bready flavor with some cereals and a bitter, slightly metallic, finish. Light-bodied. Better than I expected.

tomer (1746) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - FEB 17, 2010
At a tasting, thanks Zvikar, little head, clear pale yellow colour, a light hoppy aroma, some sulphur which becomes stronger in time, and a touch of vanila. Sweetish with a touch of bitterness, both fading away leaving a diluted watery sensation.

It so very hot out as I lie on the beach, it’s so hot in fact I think I’ll drink a beer hell why not review it to. Looks like a big old mug of piss in front of me tasty, refreshing, thirst quenching pee that is. What the hell I smell hops wasn’t expecting that but I also smell sour corn and mild amounts of Euro skunk. Mmmmmmm………grassy. Ice cold this beer is pretty refreshing and does the trick. Light, crisp, is heavy on the bread flavor and starts to turn sour if you let it warm slightly. I recommend drinking it straight from the bottle while it’s still in the cooler surrounded by ice. Can a beer taste bas while on vacation? This slightly above swill and marks are probably inflated because I’m on the beach and dying of thirst.
