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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can, 0.5l. Clear golden pour, soapy, short lasting white head. Nose is mostly malty, with yeast and some hops in the background.
Thin to medium body, regular to high carbonation with watery texture. Bittersweet. Aroma of malts, yeast, corn, grains, a bit of hops. Regular finish.
Overall, nothing to write home about here. Avarage pilsener. When served ice cold it’s refreshing and quite drinkable.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2016 500ml can BB 7/11/16
Strong grainy cereal aroma with cardboard note.
Poured light gold with OK head.
Mild bitterness. Slightly grainy taste but otherwise it’s all about wet cardboard with this one and not much else. This reminded me of a bog standard oxidized Euro lager than a Pilsener.

Can. Thin sweetish malt aroma, with grain and a small floral note. Medium dark straw color. Flavors of grass, hay, and very thin sort of maltiness. Very thin body, watery. Not a heck of a lot going on here.

500ml can...clear golden pour with a small white head. Biscuity nose and bready flavor...quite average, but at $1 a can a decent value.
