I think the bottle had sat too long. Still had a good hop aroma, mixed with grass. Cloudy yellow beer with a white head. Malt had notes of bottle aging.

Im fairly impressed with this pilsner. My 2nd pilsner of late that's in a brown bottle, why can't everyone do that? I think it makes a difference not having that skunky flavor as part of the experience. Aroma is lemony with some hops and straw present. Flavor is slightly bitter and refreshing all at the same time. This is a nice lighter beer.

I'm not much for lagers or pilsners, but this pils is not so bad at all -- cloudy yellow with light malt flavor and a distinctly hoppy bitterness.

As far as pilseners go, imho Germany does it best and Pinkus is one of my favorites. I gave it a "5" for apeparance because this is what a pilsener beer should look like, nice cloudy golden color with a nice head and lacing.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
50 cL bottle, pint glass, 48 degrees. Fizzy, white head is average sized and quickly shrinks, but doesn't fully quit. Body is a hazy, deep yellow-amber color with many tiny particles and soda like carbonation. Moderate flowery, grassy hops are balanced nicely by cookie and toasted light bread malt. Hint of white grapes in the aroma. Moderately sweet, lightly bitter, lightly acidic flavor becomes a lightly sweet, moderately bitter, moderately acidic finish. Long fresh cut grass finish. Medium-light body, fizzy carbonation, watery texture. The bottom line is: pleasant, refreshing, just not incredibly interesting.

Color more golden than average, fine head, but not really longlasting. Sweet, slightly hoppy aroma. Starts sweet with significant acidity, finishes drier. Aftertaste sweet and dry and not lingering. Not dry for a pilsener.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
My 200th beer review.500ml brown bottle. No freshness date. Poured out a straw yellow color, with a huge, but short lived, thick white head. Aromas of hay, grass, sweet malts, slightly phenolic also. Tastes about like you'd expect a German Pilsner beer would. Malty, herbaceous, woody. Tart finish to it as well. Crisp, but no aftertaste. Maybe this beer is better in the fatherland.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear yellow lager. Small, everlasting, creamy white head. Thick lacing.
The nose is floral and sweet with notes of honey.
The flavor is sweet. Not quite balanced, but close.
Light-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and light carbonation. Short, bitter finish.
Not my favorite style, but a pretty good brew nonetheless.
