Mostly gold pour with just a touch of red, not enough to make it coppery though. Head looks like sponge toffee but white, and is fading very slow with lots of lacing. Very week scent, just a touch of fresh cut grass. Very easy to drink. Very dry clean taste at first and then there’s a rush of weedy grassiness in the finish. I would enjoy this more if it wasn’t for that finish, though without it the beer really wouldn’t have any character at all. Not a favourite but not horrible.

tightslice (707) - Redwood City, California, USA - FEB 8, 2016
Bottle from Beltramos in Menlo Park, CA. Mild spicy, earthiness. Some grass and honey. A little bit of a decent pils in pale lager form.

500ml bottle from alko. Clear golden liquid, big white pillowy head. Aroma is bready and hayish malts. Starts with light sweetness, light to medium bitterness from the hops troughout. One of the better pale lagers I have tasted.

Lata temu, moja dewiza brzmiała - piwo im zimniejsze, tym lepsze. Paradoksalnie miałem rację, jednocześnie myląc się... Niska temperatura sprawiała, że pijąc (najczęściej koncernowe) piwo, cieszyłem się zimnym, orzeźwiającym napojem i wydawało mi się, że jest super! Teraz wiem, że w miarę ogrzewania uwydatniają się wady złotego trunku. Żywiec jest tego najlepszym przykładem. Kiedy przelewałem do szkła, był lekko schłodzony i rzeczywiście złoty, z ładną, białą pianą. Piana szybko pozostała wspomnieniem. Aromat lekko słodowym, lekko stęchły i nic poza tym. W smaku również niewiele poza słodem uświadczymy. Jest nieprzyjemny posmak, piwo wraz ze wzrostem temperatury robi się wręcz słodkie. Goryczki brak zupełnie. Wysycenie średnie. Piwo słabe i tyle!

foyle (360) - Wyoming, USA - JAN 11, 2016
Poured from 500ml can into pilsner glass. Appearance: a 2" pillowy white head falls slowly with a tiny bit of lacing. Color is mostly clear light gold with tons of small sediment in suspension. Moderate streaming carbonation. Aroma: yeasty bread dough and grassy hops. Mouthfeel: light and easy drinking with a dry finish. Flavor: sweet, lightly toasted barley malt and a mild but noticeable grassy and floral hop bite for balance. Overall: a generic but enjoyable euro style lager.

Kita (1676) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JAN 2, 2016
Can, 0.50l, courtesy of Adam. Pours clear straw color with thin creamy white head and sparkling appearance. Aroma is grainy, grassy, medicinal and with notes of honey and cooked corn. Taste starts moderate sweet bready with some caramel, following is sour grassy and papery, kind of stale or oxidized, while finish is not so pleasant moderate bitter. Light body, thin texture and soft carbonation in palate. Boring, but not the worst...

0,5l can. Classic pale lager just for thirst. Kind of ok, taste of plastic is very weak. Some simulation of hops

Grisza77 (320) - Poznań, POLAND - JAN 1, 2016
Jasnoz?ote, klarowne piwo o ?redniej pianie, która do?? szybko redukuje si? do zera. Aromat s?aby, lekko s?odowy. W smaku lekko wodniste, wyczuwalny lekki s?ód. Goryczka jak na koncerniaka spoko, niska w stron? ?redniej, zio?owa. Ogólnie jak na koncerniaka nie jest ?le, s?aby smak i aromat, ale wszystko ratuje ca?kiem spoko goryczka.

The toughest thing about this beer is how to say or ask for it. If your of Polish or Czech or Slav ancestry you can probably figure it out. ZEE-vits or jhivEEtz is a much better piwo than Heineken without the sulfurous taste. It compares very favorably to imported German lagers. Clean, almost..but not quite a pilsener due to soft hops. And from a price point here in the USA it is right on!
