500 ml bottle, bought at Vaaland, Bryne. Light yellow color, big white head. Grassy aroma. Too much sweetness and too little bitterness. Medium to high carbonation. Thin mouthfeel, sweet aftertaste.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a pale yellow color, topped with a nice white head.
The basic malty aroma is easily picked up, not much else here.
The taste is light, slightly watery feel, but mostly malty. Some bitterness in the finish.
OK, but average pilsener.

500ml can kindly shared by djoeye. Airy white head to a yellow coloured body. Grainy malts on the nose. Discreet taste profile of sweet lemon, apples and grain. Fruity endnotes. Lively carbonated. Rather diluted in the mouth. About drinkable (Tromsø 18.03.2014)

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Soapy big head. Pale clear baltic golden beer.
Scents of baltic malts. Tastes bread and pale malts, lacks hops - which I think a pilsener must have. Slightly dry. Boring finish in a bread.
50cl can 4.2%, b@Rimi Pärnu EE, enjoyed@RateMeet@Rune’s 18mar2014.

Canned (thanks tbone!). Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is bready malts, some slight herbal and grassy notes. Flavour is rather similar. In fact the beer is quite similar to the Saku Originaal, just a bit more watery.

I can’t see why this is called pilsener. Close to water, but still has same unpleasant flavors.

Very clear golden beer with a brief white head. Malty and sweet aroma, pretty straight forward lager aroma. Umm... how does this differ from the normal Saku, except for actually having LESS hops than the pale lager?! Wow, what a disappointment! THIS IS NOT A PILSNER!

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
50cl can from Rimi Hypermarked in Tallinn. Pours clear, very pale golden with a small, white head. Mild and weak malty aroma with cooked vegetables, grass and some slightly unpleasant aromas. Sweet, grainy and watery without much to offer. Some bitterness in the finish, but not much. Reminds me a bit of South-East Asian lager so I guess it would be better on a very hot day (or in a sauna). Slightly unpleasant.

Over the years, it just got worse and worse. I remember when it was almost as hoppy as Saku Hele. Now it is so diluted, that you can not taste anything but water. A Le Coq Pilsner is way better. Side by side comparison is fun: 9/10 choses A Le Coq.
