UPDATED: JAN 18, 2005 My friend Ron calls the best beer ever made. I think he’s listened to too many radio commercials. Certainly it’s a fine pils, but the not the best. Good crisp drink, with a light gold color, thin white head, and tight carbonation. Mild malty, doughy aroma. Nice malt & hop balance, but not a very strong flavor. Clean finish. It’s just "okay," Ron.

This one caught me somewhat off guard, as I typically am not a pilsner/lager fan. However, on tap at least, this was very tasty and interesting. Smelled and tasted of breads and yeasts, with some pepper in the mix and a buttery taste. Nice, clean tasting finish. A good one.

Second time purchasing this. I always see it at the local bodegas so i picked it up again to rate it. Dank smelling aroma. Head is very small and same with the oxygen bubbles. I noticed a sweetness along side being biter but none the less very solid. This pilsner has a unique style of its own and should remain an example.

I was very impressed immediately with the complex and pleasant aroma and the orange/ deep golden appearance of this pilsner. Very little white head and no lacing. Nicely bitter and an enjoyable aftertaste. My first won’t be my last.

Lives up to its reputation. A great pilsner from start to finish. Although the green bottle, I have never had a skunked Pilsner. Whether tap or bottle, it is surely to please the palate with the balance of malt and hops. And is nice on a hot summer day.

The first is still good. Light golden colour, with no real head. Crisp clean finish. Tastes like what other beers wish they were.

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2005 My old review wasn’t that informative, so I decided to update it. I still stand by my rating of the beer. 0.5l green bottle. It’s not a fresh sample, but it sure wasn’t skunky. Poured a deep golden colour, with a big fluffy white head that went completely away rather fast. I didn’t notice much lacing. The nose was faint (the beer was cold, so it figures), but it was malty, honeyish. The taste was nice, with a nice hoppy foreground and a subtle and pleasant malty and lemoney background. Good hoppy aftertaste. Flawless, but far from flashy.
The source of all pilseners is definitely an above average pilsener, with a pleasant and balanced taste. And it’s pretty refreshing too.

I don’t often buy Pilsners, but tried this upon recommendation of a friend. Have to say I was very impressed. For some reason or another, this beer reminded me of the ubiquitous St. Pauli Girl, only much better. A great, refreshing session beer that I’ll be buying again.

12oz bottle: Believe it or not, I bought this beer because I saw a review on tv (thirsty traveller for those that know the show). A very balanced flavor, with a bit of hops for an aftertaste. All in all, a very good beer. I will definately be buying this one again.
