3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2008 I finally got a fresh bottle and had to re-rate this beer. Man what a difference. A fresh bottle is truely a perfect example of what a pilsner should be. Refreshing, crisp, and a good bite without a bad or strong aftertaste.

Skunky aroma when first opened.Nice deep head, but dissipates quickly with no lacing. Color is a beautiful golden color. Smooth taste with a small amount of bitterness in the finish. Good for a pilsner.

Pours with a nice golden hue and with a correct proportion of foam. Light malty taste with subtle dry hops incorporation. This is my favorite pilsner thus far even though it originates from a large brewery.

Light malty aroma with some citrus. Appearence is wonderfull, fully lasting creamy head. Heavy bitter flavour, with average duration. Soft carbonated.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a 12 oz. bottle
Pours out sparkling gold with little head. Lots of carbonation. Looks great.
Smells of hops and not much else. No malt smell save a bit a fresh hay smell.
Bitter taste of hops. Dry. Hops overpower any malt taste completely. Light to medium body. Good taste but I like a bit of malt taste to my pilsner. Taste is nice but it all comes from the hops. Little aftertaste. A good pilsner but not as good as I remember it from a few years back.

This is a pretty good pilsner, but too light for me. I gotta say its pretty good if you are limited to the local grocery store. One of the best on the "common" shelves.

Bottle. Pours a dark yellowish color with decent head. Smells of grass and malt, a bit skunky but could be do to the age of the bottle and it being at World Market near flourescent lights. Tastes of malt with a bit of floral hop flavor and then inter-mixes spiciness and bitterness. Light and highly carbonated this would be a good lawnmower beeer.

Not much for the nose and I hate to use this word but, crispy, a good pils, but not my favorite. Ok

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a beautiful golden color with a half inch white head. Aroma was light malts and floral hops. Flavor was malty but some upfront sweetness was present. It is carbonated well and is another good beer for a warm summer day. Quite drinkable and delicious.
