3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle. Classic pilsner aroma. Fruity: White grape juice, apple, apricot, and peach scents. Cream and vanilla. A little bit of smoke, char, and tobacco, surprisingly. Caramel roll. Tangy: grapefruit. Appetizing and impressively complex smell. Pours a clear, dull gold / light brass with a moderate amount of bubbles that rise at a moderate to fast pace. Light to moderate amount of head. Dry and creamy flavor. Bland but balanced and satisfying taste. Crabapple and mineral water elements. Plastic and clay in the finish. Easy to drink. Light to medium body. Smooth and somewhat frothy in the palate. Not quite as crisp and lively as ideal for a lager; a bit flat and watery (but just a bit). I know this is a mediocre review, but I actually quite enjoyed this beer, certainly more than I expected. I don’t know where I can fairly boost the rating except to give it a solid 15 in the overall category.

Aroma suave. Boa aparência, coloração amarela-dourada com pouca formação e pouca retenção de espuma. Bom sabor, levemente amarga (sem retrogosto). Cerveja boa mas comum (sem um algo a mais).

12 oz can brought back from Peru. Not a huge pilsner fan, and this one has a distinct after taste. Not a big fan.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bought as a can from a Chinese supermarket. Poured a shade darker than what’s pictured. Taste stays true to form as a pilsener but does not stand out. Average at best and, at least where I am in China, overpriced for what it’s worth.

330 ml. Clear golden with a covering of creamy bubbles. Aroma has toasted grain, scorched popcorn and burning rubber. Flavor has the same components, with some honey and corn. Long finish shows a touch of dry grass. Medium body is well balanced and has medium carbonation. I should have known better than to buy a green bottle.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Picked up a few bottles in Beijing but for lack of refrigerated convenience lugged them back with me to Oz.
Chilled and into a tulip. Sparkling medium amber with a tidy, two finger thick foam atop that left a fine lace. There is a strong, toasty, cereal-like graininess and balanced, spicy, herbal hops on the nose. Meaty, chunky, malt dominated palate by contrast. Toasty and cereal-like like the aroma with a nutty, haystack edge. Hops are peppery in back with just a brief flashing of bitterness before a crisp and very short swallow. Good body, clean and simple. Does its job well!! (33cL, BB 04/01/13, Off-license, Beijing, China)
