Pours yellow with white head. Floral, grass and grain aroma and flavors. Light body and average carbonation. Grass and floral finish. lawman834 (273) - Texas, USA - JAN 15, 2015
Pours a crystal clear golden with a thick foamy white head. Decent lacing. Smells of lemon and grass. Tastes of the same plus bread and malt with floral notes on the finish. A very fine, well balanced Pilsener. maddmatt639 (344) - Pacifica, California, USA - JAN 6, 2015
No retention and no lacing. Smells of biscuit, lemon and grass. Tastes of vegetable, floral and bitter biscuit. Semi-bitter aftertaste.

Functional label on a standard longneck. Clear, brilliant gold brew with a thin, webby white head. Not much remarkable about the aroma - just lagery and a little sunflower seed note. Frothy mouthfeel, light mineral notes, very light bittering. Flabby body overall after the initial swig. Some final bitterness at the end. This is just a whole lot of nothing - no reason to buy this instead of Bud. TJ’s, Tallahassee. PorterPounder (8355) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 4, 2015
Tallahassee, Fl - Trader Joe’s - 12 oz bottle. Sparkling medium golden pour, soft, snow white head, thin lacing. Aroma has some buttery accents, a touch of saffrron like spiciness. Classic pilsener flavor, a touch of bitter hoppiness, some bready maltiness, a touch of honey sweetness. Crisp mouthfeel. Pretty decent and a great price at TJ’s ($1.17).

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2015 12 oz. bottle from TJ’s. Poured crystal-clear golden orange with a dense, well-retained head. Nutty notes over light bready malts on the nose. The flavor is a bit of lemon and grass over soft bread and lesser caramel malts. Just enough bitterness to offset the sweetness. Pretty clean, well-balanced and tasty.

I’ve passed by this beer a few times at Trader Joes, however this time I went ahead and plunked down the money and got a sixer and I was quite happy I did. A clean, flavorful, classic example of a fresh pilsener. A nice malty, bitter walnut-like aroma mixed with some wet pine. Flavor is clean, dry, with a nice hay-like hop flavor with some cracker malt to help the balance. Solid beer and I can see several sixers of this being bought because the price is so right.

Slightly cloudy yellow, soapy white head.
Grain, corn malt, vegetal aroma.
Taste is slightly sour grains....lackluster grassy bitter.
Didn’t seem much like a pilsner at all.

12 ounce bottle from Trader Joes. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. The aroma is big sweet toast and corn. The flavor is more super sweet base malts, not very clean, a round rice or corn element to the flavor that you get in lots of cheap beer. Drinkable. I’ve proven that much. shrubber85 (11706) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 23, 2014
Bottle. Sour barley malt aroma. Golden yellow with small head. Sour corn/barley malt and lightly bitter grass flavor. Cheap crap lager taste.
