COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Slightly bitter, mild, with a fragrance of hops - our pilsner is a cut above the ordinary. A beer with character.

500ml bottle into wheat beer glass. Clear golden liquid with 3 fingers of white head. Flowery hoppy aroma. Smooth sweetish hoppy mid palate that finishes with a wonderfully crisp refreshing bitterness. This is a great under-rated pilsner in my opinion.

Pale golden colour, lively carbonation at first that settles down quickly... cream head, not strong. Smooth, Bitter and sweet.... slight sourness on the back of the tounge... Very refreshing... slight aftertaste.

Capa (1979) - Manama, BAHRAIN - JUL 29, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2012 Clear yellow with a pillowy white head. Earth hops, malty, and a bit of citrus in the nose. Smooth body with a light dry bite at the end. Muted flavor with the hops being the most prominent feature. Some sweet malt lies underneath. Decent, but a bit of a let down, actually.

joshwilfong (1200) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - MAY 4, 2008
golden clear with white head. flavor of munich malt but the hop finish is somewhat astringent and overpowering. an unusual pilsner that really stands upon the hop finish than the maltiness

(draft @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Clear gold color with a thin white head. Aroma is very light with some sweetness, malts, grass, corn, and metal. Flavor is light and watery with some light malt flavor, a touch of dry hops and hay, and a sweet and slightly metallic finish. Watery and plain.

Clear, pale lemon yellow in colour with a frothy white head. Some lacing. Sweet aroma. Medium bodied (a little on the watery side) with average carbonation. Low to moderate bitterness. No strong flavours, some sweetness, very slightly malty. Refreshing...Not bad. - 500ml bottle.
