altonbrownd (4615) - Brussels, - JAN 30, 2013
Can in Trieste. Golden body with medium head. Nose is corny, pilsener. Taste is malty, some hops and metallic notes. Bitter in there too. Fine enough, on a warm taxi trip back to the airport.

veceo (229) - CROATIA - MAR 24, 2014
Clear golden color, small white head that quickly disappeared. Light body, average carbonation. Very watery texture. Aroma is hops, malts, corn, metal. Taste is medium bitter. Awful pilsener.

Usko (149) - Bavaria, GERMANY - MAR 23, 2014
0.5l can. Golden color, white head. Nose of bread and cereals, lacks of hop notes. Taste is the same, a bit corny and metallic. Medium bitterness, medium body.

bhensonb (10354) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 16, 2013
66 cl bottle from a small market in Firenze. Pours gold with a slight white head. Nice noble aroma. Med body, almost. Flavor is rather bready, and there is a decent noble hop presence. Pilsner Urquil it’s not, but I think it qualifies as an under hopped pilsner. Given the price it’s a deal!

JaKeAFC (452) - ITALY - JUN 19, 2013
66 cl bottle. Yellow color, standard head. Metallic nose, metallic taste. Unmalted cereals, straw, with some faint grassy hops. Gassy. Macrolager with a pilsener attitude, dry burpy finish. Easily forgettable.

Juusto (37) - FINLAND - APR 18, 2013
0,66l Pretty basic pils. Grassy and lightly bitter. Aroma is quite simple without anything special. Weird bottle size. (at least in Finland) Cheapish, but would buy again.

artyom (356) - Osijek, CROATIA - MAR 9, 2013
0,66l bottle. Golden color. Aroma is hops and grass. Taste is grass, pretty bitter, not so good. I don’t like it.

Kita (863) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JAN 20, 2013
Bottled, 0.66l. Pours clear golden with medium sized frothy white head. Aroma of grainy malt, grassy hops, nothing else. Crisp and dry malty taste, a bit papery with relatively bitter finish. Light to medium body, slick texture and lively carbonation in palate. Average thirst killer...

Yellow coloured and clear. Has a white head, medium duration. Nice hoppy aroma, some malts too. Flavor starts light sweet, finish moderate to heavy bitter. Dry texture.
