A very fine pils. Strawy with a good lot of salt at the end. A very pleasant suprise.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour is straw golden yellow and slightly hazed with a nice bright tight bubbled off white head...smell is a little grainy and earthy with a slight vegetal aroma, but good...taste is lingeringly sweet and the beer seems almost still in the mouth...cirus, lemons etc. are there...not bad...

What a nice lager! Beautiful golden colour, and very aromatic in the nose. Nice malts, and a little smokey. That reflects the taste aswell. Nice full palate, of malts, little smokey flavour, sweetness but what a hopps sensation in tha aftertaste. It stay’s there for ever.The best foreign lager in my opinion.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(330 ml bottle: Hi-Time Wine Cellars in Costa Mesa, CA) Grainy, lightly sweet, and quite grassy, this beer smells like it might have some promise. And the flavor makes good on that, presenting me with a pleasant, very grainy- and grassy-tasting beer. Light bodied, but reasonably clean. Medium straw in color with a slight haze. Size, retention and lacing of the off-white head is average across the board. I thought this would be a really crappy imported lager, but this has been all right.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can (500ml). Okay, here goes, another pils. Poured glowing very pale yellow with a big finely foamed white head that dropped visibly, leaving a scum-like lace behind. Aroma oddly like fresh-picked mint (tangy, sweet, almost musky), with some sour grain notes - very odd. Taste is of straw, wheat flour, sugary malt - eventually finishes very bitter-harsh, not like hops, more like burnt straw - to the point of leavingan unpleasant lingering aftertaste. Harsh, brackish, thin mouthfeel. Too bitter (yet also too sugary) for me, but it has more going on than most EuroLagerCans, even if it does get very vegetal as it warms slightly

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear pale gold colour with fast fading rockiy white head. Mild malt nose with slight yeast hints. Bitting bitter taste with mild bitter finish and mild malt undertones.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
a decent pilsner, golden looks, fastly dissapearing head, medium crispyness with some faint hops. Decent, or just more

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I drank two of these straight from the bottle, but I’m guessing: Golden with a white head (correct me if I’m wrong). Malted aromas, low in caramel, with herbal hops, metal & sweat. Nicely balanced flavor ending on a light, hoppy note with pencil shavings (?). A good pils... an even better "premium lager".

rated this one for free. pale yellow, lively carbonation, light bodied, finishes bitter but lacking much character. very quaffable, however, would make a decent session beer, but i would imagine that this is a little on the pricy side in this country, but it wasnt for me this past sunday.
