Pilsner? Doesn’t it need to have hops for that? Pale yellow. Nose vaguely grassy, some skunk, thin malts. Tastes like watered-down ginger ale that had old people’s feet soaking in it. Not a good thing. ALLOVATE (3074) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 16, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2005 Talk about fully imported, my samples label has no English at all on it and I am guessing its the right beer simply from the windmill on the front. Sold as ’Old miller’, I waited a good three months for its arrival at my local beer shop. Poured into a stem glass, it took on a white wine look that wasn’t reassuring. Clear pale straw body with light carbonation that failed to raise a head. Dry, lemony hop and gritty grain aroma, fairly clean and peppery. It was actually a pleasant smelling beer. Light weight in the mouth and lively in carbonation, it seemed to cross the tongue with considerable ease. Lemon cordial, castor sugar and a light hint of grain made for a reasonably sweet beer, but its subtlety in flavour kept it from becoming sugary. Finish is short, with a little grassy hops and husky malt in the back. Not too bad a beer, boring and a little watery, but hard to fault.

bubbly, clear goldish colour, euro lager definitely not a pilsener! dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - JUN 14, 2005
has that bittery firm flavor that i ve been looking for a long time.
Bottled. Pale golden colour. Medium bubbly head. Slightly skunky, hoppy aroma. Rather bland, somewhat sweetish, grainy taste. Lightbodied. Overall a watery and bland lager. SDalkoholic (2434) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JUN 4, 2005
Bottle: Not a horrible aroma like pale lagers usually have, but it’s still not that appealing. Surpised to see such little haze in the beer even though this is a 2003 bottle. A clear water goldish color with just enough head to cover the liquid. Flavor is full of that corn and rice paper that we all have come to love in a crappy beer except this is somewhat more drinkable than the other macros. $2 bucks for a bottle was okay, i guess, because i was able to drink a beer tonight.

So this is a pilsner? Should I rate this as one or a typical Euro lager, albeit as eastern as we can get? Emil (6064) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 3, 2005
it looks like I expected as it said ’I am an eastern euro brew/ed beer so what do you want, tovarich?’ Well, da, I mean duh, it is a typical beer of is kind from my fond memories of living in the region for a while. It is certainly grainy with a light touch of hops in the background. There is some balance in this beer that compares more favourably to those macro swills we have in this part of the world. Look, it is a reasonable beer that won’t excite anyone but it will do.
Bottle. Clere watery golden colour with a small white head. Weak malty aroma and a weak taste. Light almost watery body and a sweet finish. Dorqui (2262) - Brescia, ITALY - MAR 13, 2005
Compact and enough permanent foam. Yellow pale color, clear and limpid. Firm. Ordinary scent, to read notes of malt. Fresh but not particularly stinging. Without relief characteristics. Cornfield (5569) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 2, 2005
Pale yellow with little carbonation yet sporting a huge soapy head.... and that’s about all I have to say. No aroma. Not much flavor. No finish. I just booted my ratings for this ’cause I feel sorry for the folk in European Russia who have this as their mainstream beer. thegreenrooster (4588) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 10, 2004
Pour is a cloudy yellow with a huge white head. No real aroma and the flavor is sweet and gainy. Skip this one if you are in Russia.
