Can from the grocery store. Never had this, figured I would give it a shot. Pours out looking like Budweiser, but really, why did I pour this out? It is a pilsner, from a can, it should be consumed that way. Smell is full of corn and actually some hops here too. Taste is kind of watery, but lively carbonation, and a real easy beer to drink when it is hot outside. For what it is, this beer is good. This is a good alternative to Heineken and its priced the same. Better from the can than from a glass. joeneugs (6372) - Livermore, California, USA - JUN 29, 2009
For a pilsner, this was a really good beer. It’s just not my favorite style. Pours a crystal clear yellow with a large, fine white head. It has a dusty, lemony hop aroma with a hint of sweetness. The flavor is a yummy lemony orange with the great pilsner malts showing through. Crisp, clean and pretty dry, but again, a hint of sweetness to balance it out nicely. A bit seltzery, but very tasty. vtafro (7444) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - JUN 29, 2009
Can. This beer is very light. Not too much flavor or aroma wise still better than the normal mass produced pilsners. Gregis (1291) - Stilwell, Kansas, USA - JUN 28, 2009
Can; purchased at Liquor Mart in Boulder. Pours a nearly-clear dark gold with a frothy white head that slowly recedes leaving behind patchy lace. The nose is pretty muted: lightly sweet biscuity malt with just a hint of earthy/grassy hops. Light-bodied with soft effervescence and a crisp, drying, mildly bitter finish. The flavor is a round/solid pils malt body with a surprisingly bitter grassy counterbalance that isn’t nearly as prevalent on the nose. (Curiously, they get a flavor from the Saaz that I haven’t ever tasted in another pilsener before. It’s still "grassy" but it’s like a different species of grass...it’s difficult to describe.) This beer grew on me as I got deeper into the glass, but it certainly didn’t "wow" me. Ughsmash (7510) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 26, 2009
Canned. Poured slightly hazy paler golden with a sticky, well-retained cap of white head. The aroma picked up ground lemon rind, floral, and black peppery notes over a soft pale malt and bready base.. juicy and well-presented. The flavor opened with tangy lemony notes, rolling into a thicker honey and pale malt base.. peppery spices were laced throughout.. finished with some sticky malts plus refreshing lemon and spice. Light-medium bodied, but it got caught up at a few points on the palate.. flow was just OK.. overall a tasty brew that I’d drink again.

12 oz can. Pours a pale gold with a small, foamy, white head. Mild malt aroma with crisp hop notes. A little grass and mineral in the nose as well. Medium-high carbonation with a light mouthfeel. Pleasing hop bitterness tries to offset all of the malt sweetness, but doesn’t quite get the job done. Light notes of grass and a touch of lemon on the palate too. Short finish. An okay pils. esjaygee (3906) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 24, 2009
Clear golden yellow with a medium quickly fading white topper. Aroma of grassy hops, sweet malt, mild floral hops and a touch of pepper. Taste is grassy as well with some sweet malt mixed in. Pretty easy to drink with a hoppy finish. BeerFanDan17 (1121) - Brunswick, Maine, USA - JUN 23, 2009
A very tasty pilsener done just right. Nice balance of hops and malt. Good color and mouth feel. Davetopay (54) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUN 22, 2009
Oskar has let me down. I was very surprised at the cheap taste of this beer. Something in it reminded me of malt liquor in a brown bag. I am a fan of Dale’s, Gordon, Ten Fiddy, but not this stuff. I didn’t find any of the great pils aromas, quickly bitting bitterness that fades to become herbal spices against sweet golden malts. It just wasn’t there. It reminded me of corn laden, industrial lager. Sorry, I don’t think I’ll be comign back to revisit this any time soon. BlackForestCO (1288) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - JUN 20, 2009
Can. Poured a crystal clear yellow color with an inch and a half thick, rocky white head that steadily receded to a bubbly layer while leaving some spotty lacing. Aroma of light pilsner malt, some sweet honey, light orange, and some spicy, grassy hops. Crisp, lightly spicy entry with some orange flesh, a bit of sweet honey, and graham cracker lead into a rather spicy hoppiness with a light grassy character that finishes lightly dry. Soft carbonation and a bit heavier mouth feel than most pilsners. Overall, a pretty drinkable beer, but it seems a bit spicier and heavier than other, more enjoyable examples of the style.
