Pedestrian label, standard longneck. Clear, bright citrine beer with a wispy white head. Light, grainy-sweet lager malt aroma. Grainy, slightly sweet, oat tones, a little olive brine in the flavor. Crisp mouthfeel, medium to slightly light body, eurohops cling just a tad in the aftertaste. TJ’s Tallahassee. PorterPounder (7896) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 4, 2015

6-Pack from Trader Joes’s. Non distinct aroma and appearance. Classic medium body with a nice white head. Taste is hops with hints of corn, pine and a slightly seer caramel finish. Drinks easy, not bad especially given the price. radagast83 (8019) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - NOV 6, 2014
Trader Joes bottle - 12oz. Poured a clear golden color with a pretty large white head. Aroma was notes of toasted malts, light grassy hops, some earthy notes. Flavor was grassy hops, light grain. Middle of the road. Great value though for what you’re getting.

12 oz bottle. BB 02/18/15. (Trader Joe’s) Greenville, SC.slowrunner77 (11930) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Clear golden colour with a small white head.
Grassy hops, moderate bitterness and grainy malt in the aroma.
The flavour is cardboardy malt, grassy hops and some bitterness. Not the worst Pilsener but a bit cardboardy.
"more refreshing than the vienna lager, and therefore better. nothing that’ll blow you away, but for $5 a six-pack? i’ll give that a light recommendation." crossovert (12667) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 8, 2014
355ml Bottle. So TJ’s markets 2 different czech pilseners. This one is a biiit on the lighter side for a bohemian lager, nice qhite head, large carbonation bubbles. Smell is sweet with pie crust and spices, dense malt character underneath. Flavor is spicy and bready, fairly dry with a mild but noticeable noble bitterness. Bit of bittersweetness in the finish that reminds you it is czech and not a german pils. Its good for what it is, a toastier, maltier alternative to Urquell.

This is too sweet and not bitter enough for a Pilsner, I would say. It is closer to a helles, I suppose. I don’t really care about that but I do care that this is really just not all that great. It is orange in color w/ a small white head and lacing in patches. Its nose is honey-like malt and some grassy hops. Taste, as I mentioned, is a touch on the sweet side and what little bitterness it has has a slight medicinal edge to it. It is medium bodied and not too heavy despite its sweetness and finishes w/ a lingering bit of vague fruitiness and slightly metallic bitterness. This is actually close to being a really good beer. If it were dryer and the hop character more pleasant, it’d be excellent, but this is a style where you pay for every little mistake and this beer surely does. sawbuck (725) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Nice aroma of sweet bread and spicy,peppery hops. Deep golden color wiht a thin white head. Weak off-sweat malt flavor up front. Floowed by peppery, spicy hops. Watery in mouth feel. Finishes with some sweetness and spicy hops and a little salty. Average.
