ineedbeer (739) - Oakland, California, USA - FEB 11, 2013
Aroma is grainy with a touch of sulfur and some light corn notes. A hint of a herbal hop aroma. The aroma is fairly clean but there is some light fruitiness as well. Pours a super clear yellow-gold with a thin white head that quickly recedes to the edges. Decent lacing and medium legs. Flavor starts with slightly sweet malt notes - grainy with some corn to it. A low floral hop flavor is also present as well as a light sulfur note. Moderate bitterness in the finish. Crisp, medium light body with medium carbonation. Low hop astringency and no alcohol warmth. Overall this beer isn't impressive but it is clean and to style. I may be imagining it but there seems to be some light esters in the aroma. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

budedou (391) - Saint Etienne, FRANCE - SEP 23, 2014
Clean golden color, medium white head. Aroma of malt and grassy hops. Taste has similar notes plus grain and light citrus. Thin body and lively carbonation. Very typical pilsner but quite ok.

digopossobon (285) - MACAE, BRAZIL - SEP 22, 2014
Belo creme! Bonito mesmo. Espesso na medida, claro, consistente. A cor, belíssima. Amarelo dourado bem translúcido. O aroma se espalhou bravamente pelo ar. Refrescante, bem típico e agradável. Vamos ao primeiro gole... O amargor é pungente e se destaca. A refrescância vem em seguida. Não é uma cerveja leve, embora também não possa ser classificada como densa. Tem alguma acidez associada a carbonatação, que atrapalha um pouco a drinkability. Mas muito pouco. Se oferecida novamente, aceitaria sem problema. Não que eu seja muito de negar cervejas...

loco_gallego (63) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 21, 2014
Blonde dorée limpide. Mousse blanche très peu persistante. Bonne carbonation. Arôme subtil et balancé d’orge. Légèrement fruité, manque d’arômatique tout de même. En bouche typique pils, certes bien balancée mais manquant d’arômatique et d’houblonnage. Très légère amertume et sécheresse en fin de bouche. Peu de caractère, mais au dessus de la moyenne parmi les macro-brasseries.

kafarion (53) - POLAND - SEP 17, 2014
Aromat słodowy. jest chmiel, troszeczkę orzechowy, jest też żelazo. Piana wysoka, szybko opada ale nie do końca, dobrze zdobi szkło, kolor słomkowy, prawie woda. Gorycz średnio niska, czuć słód, orzeszki, alkohol. Piwo bardzo pijalne, goryczka nie zalega. Ogólnie bardzo dobre piwo do ugaszenia pragnienia.

Bottle. Pale straw, carbonated white head. Aroma is doughy malts. Flavour has some nice hops to balance. Not bad.

BuckeyeBoy (2725) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 8, 2014
From a tall .5 liter can. With a big thanks to Alex for bringing this over. Pours out a crisp pale straw topped with a white head. Nose is sweet malts fresh cut grass and some dough. Taste is as the nose with a clean and refreshing taste.

Corrente. Agradável, leve, fresca deixa um travo ligeiramente amargo e seco no final.

nose: i dont know why the smell of this makes me go to beer heaven even after ive tried many pilsners etc. there’s just something about it [when i get it fresh, otherwise it just skunks]. to me, it smells like a very specific new leather boot from mexico and ficus trees, or something like that. palate: beautifully balanced. it’s all in the initial atack and then it trails off graciously with the nuanced hops hanging on for an extra little bit. it’s not necessarily distinctive in flavors but it gets it ’right’. nuff said!
