ThisWangsChung (836) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Reviewed 12/25/2012. 11.2 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a lighter straw color with fantastic clarity. The head is a one finger white color with okay retention. Basically, it’s everything you’d expect a decent pilsner to look like. S: I was really wary when I first popped open the weird pulltab and whiffed a MASSIVE amount of skunk, but in the glass it’s calmed down well. Lots of zesty noble hops with no real malt aroma. Weak in general, but not bad. T: There’s almost a green pepper flavor that really catches me off guard - yeah, it definitely tastes like bell pepper. Not really a good thing. There’s a bit of grass and sweet malts on the finish, but that off flavor really throws everything off guard. M: Well carbonated and nicely light - there’s no mouthfeel problems keeping it from going down easy, just the flavors. O: This...doesn’t work. The pepper character kills what could have been a good pilsner. At the very least, it would pair decently with Mexican food.

jp199820022004 (2) - SCOTLAND - JUL 29, 2016 does not count
Aroma nothing special It's yellow Tastes likes pils but nothing special Surprised to read its 5.1% Palette quite buttery in fact but not that much taste otherwise. Overall would prefer some more but it's just a bit wet blanket.

Garrafa 330 ml. Cor de dourado claro achampanhado, translúcida, alguma espuma de média duração. É uma cerveja muito leve, de razoável carbonação, pouco amargor e pouca presença de lúpulo. O aroma também é bem leve, com alguma presença de malte.
