look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a one finger white head. Lots of lacing. Golden body.

Grainy and metallic smell to it. Also plenty of skunk, despite it being in a can.

Lots of grain and skunk on the tongue. Low hop bitterness through all those grain notes, and no malt presence. Skunky, bitter aftertaste.

Watery, but decent carbonation.

Heard decent things about this pilsner, but what I got was a mess. Even though it was in a can with a best by date of April 2013, there was a lot of skunk notes in it. Lots of grain notes too, similar to an adjunct. Not a good pilsner.

Re-review on July 31, 2014. Poured from a 500ml can, best before date of December 22, 2014.

One finger white bubbly head, golden copper body.

Slight honey and fruity notes on the nose. Bit of sweet leafy hop note.

Bready and caramel notes on the tongue, followed by sweet fruity and honey notes. Decent bitter and dry aftertaste.

Medium body, nice amount of carbonation.

Decided to try it again while deciding what to buy at the liquor store. Glad I did it, I suppose the can I got 1.5 years ago was a bad one. Now a pretty nice tasting and refreshing pilsner. Well done.

Golden and somehow clearer than water. Pilsner flutes were designed to accentuate the beer’s color, clarity and carbonation. An inch of pure white frothy is replenished by rising bubbles.

Slight skunk, lots of sweet honey, saltine crackers, Subtly spicy, herbal nose, maybe cilantro, crushed black pepper, a whiff of grass blades.

Honey, saltines, grassy, earthy, dried spices and herbs. bitter salad greens, slightly musty grain, just-baked bread loaf, hint of dried lemon shaved onto bitter salad greens. Black pepper swirls before a more malty-sweet, balanced finish.

Light to medium-light in body with mild massaging carbonation. a bit of snappy bitterness at the finish has you reaching for another sip forthwith.
