A very nice light golden pils with great clarity and a fizzy white head. Very crisp and refreshing the whole way though with spicy hops and a long dry finish.that is my beer,drinking every day

Tap at Gostilna Pri Planincu in Bled. Sweetish, crisp, malty, light with a certain fullness. An alright eurolager.

500 ml can. Pours clear golden yellow with a big frothy dissipating head. Aroma shade of grassy hops. Taste is mild sweet malty, grainy, light hay and grass, watery.

Can from a supermarket at home. Cheap beer, hence the taste.. Nothing special, typical lager.

GreenCat (170) - SLOVENIA - SEP 23, 2017
0,5 l can. Pours clear golden yellow with a big frothy dissipating head. Aroma of bread, light grassy and herbal. Taste is light to medium sweet, light bitter. Body is medium, texture slick, carbonation average. Finish is medium, sweet, bready with light bitterness.

BBHansen (979) - Køge, DENMARK - SEP 4, 2017
Bottle @ Home w senior before Zatech 2017. Appearance: pours clear yellow with ok short lived white soapy head and lacing. aroma/taste: barley, light straw and grassy notes. palette: weak malty aroma, average carbonation, light to medium body, average sweetness, somewhat balanced by a light to medium bitterness, short duration and a watery texture. Overall: uninspiring

Draft. Rather awful beer. Barely anything beerish inside. Avoid and you won’t miss anything.

budedou (1046) - Saint Etienne, FRANCE - AUG 27, 2017
Typical lager. Clear golden, malty aroma and taste with shade of grassy hops. Low bitterness if any.

drank straight from the can (in style) whilst playing some shows in the area. very cheap, very good cold but a bit heady, even though it isn’t so strong ABV wise. as far as cheap lager goes, it was pretty standard, but tastier than most british offerings.

The brewing process for this beer developed in the mid-19th century when Gabriel Sedlmayr took pale ale brewing techniques back to the Spaten Brewery in Germany and applied them to existing lagering methods. This approach was picked up by other brewers, most notably Josef Groll of Bavaria who produced Pilsner Urquell in the city of Pilsen in the Austro-Hungarian Empire (now in the Czech Republic). The resulting Pilsner beers – pale-coloured, lean and stable beers – were very successful[clarification needed] and gradually spread around the globe to become the most common form of beer consumed in the world today.
