Nothing special here. Seems the more I drink some of these pilsners, the more I dislike them. There was something about the taste and smell of this one that turned me off.....like a dead skunk with rotten fruit. Not pleasant at all, but better than Olde English , Schlitz, or any brew of that ilk.

Overall, bland. Light golden appearance, pillowy white head, good lacing. Lifeless mouthfeel. Flavor has some peppery essence to it with just a tad bit of Saaz hop bitterness. A bit of a biscuity flavor to it as well. Not much else going on with this. Dull.

Yet another green bottled lager from Europe. Of course the skunk aroma hit me right away. Has a bright gold coloring with a very thin head. The aroma has a little skunk with dirt and cooked carrots. The taste is a a fairly light metallic tinge. It also has celery and a little bit of pepper in the finish.

Bottled: Golden coloured. Clear. Off white small head. Sweet and metallic aroma. Flavour is malty and very sweet. Is very thin bodied and ends on a artificial sweet note. Not much hops present in this one.

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2007 Green 11 point something oz bottle. These UC countries are always shorting me by 8/10 of an ounce. Nice wrapper on the lid. Pours somewhat like transparent apple cider into my poor steeler stein. Aroma of yeast and a background of skunky vegetableness. Looks like lots of carbonation with the initial pour. The flavor is pleasing and has a light astringentness to it. The palate is cool with it’s tingly carbonation on the back of the throat. The finish is very different, it starts off mild and as time goes by it builds to the bitterness of a pilsner. Usually the bitterness fades on the finish, this one builds…interesting. Except for the odd bitterness on the finish this is an overall decent brew.

Golden with no head. Not a bad pils here. Pretty dry, a nice texture, but not a whole lot of flavor. Pretty good and refreshing though.

Pours a clear, gold with a light white head, disappearin quickly. Smell id preety grainy, some corn, yeast, and just a semblance of a little cinnamon. Maybe thats trying to be nice. Taste is very grainy as I was expecting, a little bitter, good amount of corn. Definitely drinkable, but nothing I’d drink again.

Pours clear yellow with fizzy white head. Nose is faint soap, malt. Flavor of faint stale malt, rather bitter towards the end. Forgettable.
