Little aroma and only a vague malt flavor. Made for the Bud drinkers I guess. Good light pils but without distinction.

grainy honey aroma, kinda cloudy, weak honey flavors not enough crispness or hop presence

Golden yellow body with small white head. Flavor is unspectacular with fizzy carbonation. Finish is somewhat flat and buttery.

On draft. Pours a clear golden with a well formed white head but very little effervescents. The aroma is spice and grass, light biscuity malts. Body is med. light with very low CO2 for the style. The flavors are on the hoppier side; again spice and grass. The finish is dry but shows a great deal of oxidation. I would like to try this bottled.

Ungstrup (38858) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2009
Bottled. A light golden beer with a white head. The aroma has notes of straw and some malt - quite clean. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, straw, and some bread, leading to a medium bitter finish.

Bottle 12fl.oz.

Clear medium orange yellow colour with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, white head. Aroma is moderate malty, grain, hay, toasted. Flavour is moderate sweet and light moderate bitter with a average to long duration, grassy, malty. Body is medium, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is soft. [20111211]

BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 20, 2012
[355ml bottle, Appellation Wines, Edinburgh] Pours a golden clear yellow with a beamingly bright head. Plenty of rising carbonation. Soft, sweet aroma of biscuity malt. Slightly tangy on the palate, leading to a bitter, crisp finish. A decent pilsner – some faint flowery hop in there, the whole thing is (as you’d expect) very drinkable [09032012]

Onionkid (390) - Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA - OCT 20, 2012
Bottle. The aroma is grassy and malty. Flavor is similar, with some bread crust and zest along with the grass and malts. Crisp finish, slightly sweet. Very tasty for a pilsner!

12 oz. bottle. It pours a very effervescent clear yellow color with a disappearing white head. The aroma is very floral and minerally. The flavor is the same with a nice noble hop presence and a clean palate. A little bit of aspirin in the finish that throws it a bit off for me. I’m not sure if this is the new version of their old Pilsner, but I liked the previous one better.
Earlier Rating: 5/27/2011 Total Score: 3.4
Pours golden yellow with a nice white head. The aroma is bready/grainy with some sweet corn and some grassy, noble hops. The flavor is pretty big with a full body and some bread and corn. Strong noble hop presence offsets the sweetness. The finish is nice with some earthy bitterness and a touch of sulfer. Overall, a nice flavorful pils that’s just a little too sweet for my tastes.
