0.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Appearance: light straw, clear. Pours with a decent head which fades into a collar surrounding a blotchy puddle. Swirls with no lace and a minimal head.
Nose: very faint. Finally able to discern lemon cream and lemon meringue. French bread and baguettes and finishing with withering blades of green grass.
Palate: chewiness of French rolls with a crusty finish which is where I find dried out blades of green grass and lemon pith. Rather decent mouthfeel for a macro lager, though nothing to write home about. Dried flower petals in the breath. A super hard finish makes for an eventually unpleasant finish to each quaff; like sucking on minerals, rock, and hard salt.
Final Thoughts: meh. Been there and tasted it. Considering her region of origin and contract brewer, a descent attempt but a descent attempt not a good beer make.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Big bottle about 16 oz. Nice clean looken pale lager pilsner fer sure. Clean aroma too, no inkling of skunk here pal. Rolling CO2 visble. Oh yes, nice tasting but I can’t seem to say its much different than typical pale lagers. Its pilsner bite is much less than other beers I’ve tasted that have been classified as pilsner. Smooth and rather refreshing, pleasantly surprised. Goodly amount of pleasing CO2 on the tongue. I was expecting some kind bitter pale lager beer thing that is so common and typical from that part of the world. Perhaps this is what pilsner really should taste like? Pretty good over all. On the finish it tries to go into pilzy bite but never really gets there.

Can, 50 cl. Golden coloured beer with medium head that lasts and has some lacing also. Aroma of grains and malts, light sweet also. Taste is grainy, malty, light sweet, with some hops giving the beer a light bitter touch at the end. Overall nice pils.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A medium gold colored body with a large bright white head. The nose has some notes of raw potato along with a little bit of hay. The taste is initially raw potato along with a sharp celery spice finish. There is also a metallic note in the finish. Actually, this is a decent pils, just boring more than anything.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
A new country for me. A soapy white head on a clear golden liquid with moderate carbonation. Aroma is almost nothing. Flavor has some bitterness. Light cereal, metal, honey. Some hops, perhaps Saaz, appears late. Like the aroma there isn’t much of anything going on here. There is nothing offensive here, just not nearly enough to like.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pale golden pour. White head. Nose of light eastern European malt and a fairly assertive but completely non-descript bitterness. Fairly adjuncty with a sort of herbal/grassy finish. Lightly sweet but not really chewy. Dry and pretty awful nonetheless.
