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.

Transparently clear golden color, medium sized white head. Aroma is corn and vegetables. Traces of caramel deeply hidden. Heavy sweetness. Watery, thin body, lively carbonation. Well, this one is bad.

Can. Frankly, I don’t understand the excessively low ratings, compared with the standard European macrolager fare.this one is actually pretty decent. First and foremost, it is hoppy. Yes, you can easily get those woodsy Styrian Goldings notes in here. It is watery and sweetish, and at the same time it gives way for a medium strong, soft, slightly lingering bitterness. It tastes like an average German pils or if someone tried to augment a macrolager by throwing more hops into the kettle but hey - it is above what the macros usually sell. And it’s cheaper than them.

rosenbergh (6990) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 12, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2014 500 ml bottle. BB 13/09/2014. From a gas station in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
Clear golden colour with a small white head. Mild grassy hops, mild sweetness and grainy malt. No bitterness to talk about. The flavour is grassy hops, mild bitterness, wet malt and mild sweetness. A bland Pils.

MarkoNm (577) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUN 10, 2014
Pours a clear golden color topped with average white head. Slight skunk is followed by malty and grainy aroma. The taste is sweet, watery with just slight bittery feel in the finish.

Zhou (2) - Marseille, FRANCE - APR 27, 2014 does not count
Bouteille de 66 cl. Une couleur dorée très pale avec peu de bulles. Le gout est assez insignifiant, sans arôme particulier. La Union Pils n’a pas un grand intérêt et rempli tout juste sa fonction de déshaltérer.

veceo (544) - 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 (171) - 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.

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!
