First of all, I love the design of the can, where you can open fully and try to get aroma without pouring it in a glass. Nonetheless...

Virtually no aroma.

Decent bitterness up front, doesn't taste like any Pils malts were used, not much Pils malt sweetness, needs maltier aftertaste.

Decent thickness but could be thicker. VERY disappointing.

12 oz can, but date is illegible.

pale yellow color, slightly hazy. thin bright white head. grassy earthy aroma. mild flavor, slight corn/grain taste and mild earthy hops. thin body, medium carbonation. easy drinking. not my favorite style, but easy drinking summer beer.

355ml Can from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (£2.80):
Golden to straw colour twith good clarity and is topped with a 0.5cm, foamy white head.

Hoppy with citrus smell and some fresh, light malts. There is some touches of pine on the nose too and an earthy bitterness towards the end.

Citrus and pine mix with light hops and a touch of pilsener malts. There is some light bitterness from the middle onwards and I could detect some lemon and grassy hops too.

Light bodied and coming with a nice citrus tang and a smooth crisp feel. There is some bitterness toward the end but this is quite light and refreshing.

Not a bad pilsener at all. It has a great light and refreshing taste that goes down very easily and would make a great session beer.

A- Served in a Pilsner glass. Pours a full three inch tall billowy white head on a hazy dull straw golden colored body. Splotchy lacing with a nice white cap sticking around the very end.

S- Clean, noble hop aromas. About as authentic of an aroma as a German Pils from Pennsylvania can get.

T- Agin with the cleanliness, this time pale malts with the hops presence. Has just the slightest citrus kick on the tail end of each sip that I am really digging. Hides what (relatively) little alcohol it has very well; could drink for days.

M- Smoother mouthfeel than I was expecting. I was thinking the carbonation would be more biting than it actually is.

D/O- The orange pithy aftertaste would make me keep coming back if this were available to me all the time. Highly drinkable. As is, it will stay on my "wants" list in hopes for another try in the future. Well received by this dude and recommended to pils fans. Thanks a ton to PAbeerdude for getting me a couple cans of this long time want!

Had this on 2013-05-30 in Columbia, PA

A - Clear yellow with a 1-finger white head that fades pretty quickly and leaves mild lace.

S - Light bread, hints of lemon and floral. Pretty mild.

T - Bread, lemon tartness, white pepper, light herbal. Lingering citrus, pepper and a good amount of bitterness. It has its own Pils flavor thing going on. Certainly different that a Victory Prima Pils or a Troegs Sunshine Pils.

M - Light-medium body and medium carbonation. It's got some substance at first and then dries nicely. Refreshing.

O - I enjoyed this brew on a hot, almost-summer day and would be glad to have it again.
