Had one of these on tap at Riva (on the Wharf) while visiting Santa Cruz last Sunday. This brew pours light sparkling golden. The tight white creamy head is rocky with decent lacing and lasts to the bottom. The nose is straight pils - a touch of grass and grains. Keep in mind though I was on a wharf, where the smell of fish and cooked seafood predominates. The taste is cereal and bready grain, balanced but shallow. The palate was perfect for the day - light, creamy and soft, the finish feels clean.

7/19/03: bottle. uh! god!! fresh skunk stench as soon as you pop the cap on this one.. i wonder if they farm skunks to create this odor? pale yellow body. not too good, i just can’t get over the smell. (just a suggestion... maybe they should rename this beer Stenchae Aromas).

bender (293) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - JUL 19, 2003
A light straw colored with a wispy and quickly diminshing white head. Lacing.
Smells 100% skunked.
Watery, skunked flavor. The hops try to come through but they are quickly overcome by the skunk.
Typical smooth lager mouthfeel.

This is pretty much a middle-of-the-road Continental Lager. Personally, I wouldn't call it a Pilsner. I suppose some people will meddle the two styles. At least this is much better than Heineken.

Nice beer for the trivial tap. A trace of toasted coffee aroma at the end, as a little bitterness after you have swallowed it. Above the media, but nothing unforgettable.

jercraigs (7921) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 11, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2006 April 2006 - 500mL Can. Crisp yellow body with a moderate white head and half decent lacing on the glass. Light muted grassy hop aroma. Flavour is fairly clean with very light bitterness over minute malt. Average palate. Pretty bland but inoffensive and lacking in flaws. Can clearly is better than the potentially skunky bottles. 5/3+/5/3/10<P> Oct 2000 - decent lager, less hoppy than some German ones, but decent beer for dinner. Not worth the $6 it cost me though... 4/3/5/2/9

Tap-just a pilsner, nothing special here. just had to give it a rating. definately better on tap than the bottle.

Reasurringly expensive? Well - it's overpriced, sure. I just have no clue why it remains the beer of choice for so many. The only outstanding quality is how gassy this foul brew is.

Norton (329) - Southside, Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUL 6, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2003 Draft. Absolutely no head. Mega-carbonation overkill. After tasting, was so unimpressed, I tried to chug it and it burned my throat into oblivion. Ouch! Crystal clear gold hue. I challenge anybody to differentiate this from any BudMillerCoors brew in a blind taste test. The epitome of "run-of-the-mill".

Piss colored, bland, but fairly clean, non-skunked, german hop aroma/taste. By no means any good.
