Pours a crystal clear golden with a very short white head. Corn and green grape on the nose. Full body and a crispness on the back of the tongue. Corn flavor with ample bitterness at the finish.

So you have to take the south of the border beers for what they are. Outstanding? No. But with a slice of lime after a day of yard work, pretty gosh darn good. Modelo along with Corona may be the best of the lot. A pale yellow with not much head. And no scent that I can discern. It tastes of straw and grain. Lime saves it. Very slight bitter ending. Toss one down and then drink another. You can do worse.

When served ice cold, its a good light beer with a lime or lemon. Price is decent as well when compared to others.

PapaVillum (929) - Valby, DENMARK - JAN 17, 2017
A refreshing bavarian pilsner-style beer. Almost zero aftertaste, but an excellent beer to the summertime. The aroma is present, but hard to distinguish. An average pilsner beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not much to comment on. Some straw on the nose. Pours a clear golden honey colour with minimal head. Tastes bland, adjuncts prominent.

Bierdimpfe (633) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 8, 2016
Very bright pale color with storming pearly activity. Weak white 2 finger head, lasting around a minute, with poor legs. Flavors of sweet grains, corn, lemon, caramel, and herbal spices. Lots of malt and fruity sweetness with a dash of bitter leafy hops. Slick full body with prickly and crispy carbonation. Light bitter finish of lingering floral hops, smoked skunk, with light syrupy grainy malts and soft lime citrus. Overly accessible, but at least it doesn’t taste adjunct too much. The finish has a nice intensity, very flowery. The flavors are okay, while basic and a little off. The freshness is a bit lacking, but decent. Overall below average quality craft.
