2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle - aroma is slight malt and slight skunk. Looked like Budweiser. Very little head and it was quickly gone. Flavor was like the aroma. Malt and skunk. I’m hoping that this is just an old bottle. May have to try again. I’m certain that this beer is better than this sample.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Crystal goldenrod pour with a tall and airy white head (but little retention or lacing). Hoppy, bright and floral nose. Crisp citrus and bitter hoppy flavor with a very dry finish. If you like pilsners, you can’t go wrong with this one but don’t ask it to be more than it is.

(Bottle 50 cl) Nicely golden with a decent head. Fantastic malty AND flowery nose. Very soft mouthfeel in spite of the very pronounced hoppiness - although it apperently has diminished in recent years. A very classic nice pilsener. THE pilsener...

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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
