Can. A pale golden beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of hops and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and hay - not very exciting, leading to a dry and bitter finsih.

Strong flavored pilsner with large foamy head, light malt flavor, undertone of butter cream. I liked the graphics on the can itself, and the pilsner does hold up very well canned.

FlacoAlto (4176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 3, 2009
Canned March 2009; Sampled July 2009,br> A solid pour into my 25cl tulip glass produces a fat-three-finger thick, lightly tan colored head. The beer is a deep gold color that shows a brilliantly clear, bright gold color when held up to the light. The aroma smells of grassy grain, a touch of sweet corn, some light lemon notes and an herbal floral finish. This is simple, fairly clean, but could use a touch more hop character and even a touch more malt; it seems a bit lackluster when compared to the best of the category, but it is still pretty decent smelling.

The beer is nice and crisp tasting and does have a touch of clean grain sweetness to it. The beer finishes with some herbal hop notes and a touch of a biting bitterness that helps to balance the up front, light sweetness. The carbonation provides a touch of a peppery bite; this doesnt keep the beer from having a certain buttery texture though. There seems to be a bit of sweet corn flavor here (a touch of DMS), that doesnt detract too much. Some soft lemon notes from the hops are noticeable underneath the more prominent grassy / herbal hop notes.

Not bad, but somehow seems a bit discordant some how. This doesnt have any serious flaws to it, but somehow just doesnt seem to work for me (and I can really dig a solid Pils). The hop character here is nice, I just wish it was a little more pronounced than it is; this seems a bit too malty for a Pils. Still this is not a bad beer and is even enjoyable.

Strong grain aroma with a little yeast. Clear golden color with a medium white head. Sweet grain beginning fading in the finish.

I gotta tell ya...I bought this case sight unseen (uh, tasted)...and I was not impressed...a bit let down actually...I was so impressed with Dales and OC that I assumed this would be great...well, it wasnt...although, since I had to drink 24 of them, I did aquire the taste and overall it wasnt terrible...I will give it the drinkability factor...I could put a few down real easy...had an overall nice earthy grassy taste to it...slightly bitter, and chewy...good to have in the cooler when the BBQ is outside...otherwise, ehhh, Im not so sure...as Ive seen in some of the other ratings, better than most of the mass produced stuff.

Light yellow pour with creamy white head and lace. Aroma of wet paper and malt. Light slightly sweet malt flavor followed by a tad of bitter. Medium bodied but a tad fizzy. A very drinkable beer.

Hopper (827) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JUL 1, 2009
Pours gold with little head. Aroma-not really any just smells like beer. Taste is crisp with a peppery hops taste. Definitely good to drink outside.

crackedmachine (479) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 1, 2009
Pours clear gold with a creamy white head. Aroma is lacking...not much there. Mild, slightly sweet, bready flavor with a slightly bitter aftertaste, and a tiny hint of alcohol. Nice and refreshing.

ross (2146) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - JUN 30, 2009
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.

For a pilsner, this was a really good beer. Its 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.
