12 oz bottle pours a pale golden color with moderate white head and a little lacing. Aroma has grass, grains, and some floral hops. Taste is slightly bitter with a short finish. Body is light with average carbonation and a crisp mouthfeel. Nothing negative here, but nothing to rave about, either.

Nice easy drinker for a warm day - it is 20 outside (F not C)! Clear yellow in color with a large white head. Does remind me of the beer in Czech Republic, maybe a bit less bitter. Would not mind having a few of these after mowing the lawn.

Poured a nice mid-gold with a frothy head that faded slowly to lacing which remained throughout. Aroma was a mix of hops with a slight pear hue along with malts. Pearish hops predominate the taste although a nice malty backbone comes thru. Palate was nice. Overall a decent, drinkable pilsner.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear light yellow good carbonation frothy light good retaining head.
Aroma is sweet bread with a light refined fruit/floral sweet butter carmel almost.
Tastey beer nice hop profile in a mildly bready slight sweet beer with citrus and spicey bittering, kind of floral with a nice tartness mildly lemon. This brewery never seems to let me down.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a light golden yellow with a pure white head with lots of carbonation. Nose is a mixture of malt and hops. Very creamy on the palate, the taste is clean and smooth and finishes with a nice hops kick, crisp and clear. A better than average pilsner that can be a great companion to anything from soup to nuts.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
European Pilsner? Not even close. The flavor profile is strongly dominated by the late addition of very coarse hops. The aroma is similarly floral. Not sure why Shell´s is making a Pils that tastes like a West Coast IPA, but that is what this is. It would appear that they do not know how to produce a genuine Czech or German Pilsner, so they pawn this off on us instead.
