Appearance - Pours an apple juice/straw yellow with a finger width of white bubbly head.

Smell - Grains, adjuncts (corn), hint of bready malts, lemon rind.

Taste - Grains, malts, grassy hops, light bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Overall - A step above from the other Euro Pale Lagers that I have tried in the past. There is a nice grassy hop finish that stands out in this brew in comparison to its competition.

It's hard to write a really long review for a big Euro lager because they are all so similar. This one is a cut above the rest, however.

Eastern and Central Europe make some fantastic big brews. Being from Eastern Europe myself, I say lots of North Americans must look past the stereotypes that the area is a shithole and just get some beer from there. They will be better than any Becks or Heineken you enjoy.

This beer pours a really medium yellow - not nearly as pale as coors light or that kind of stuff. The head is pretty generous at 3 fingers' worth and the smell is really hoppy, almost like a proper pilsner. The taste is fantastic for a Euro lager - it is much more hoppy than any of the big brands, with a smooth finish and a pleasant lingering bitterness on the tongue. If you enjoy a good pilsner, you'll take well to this. Definitely grabbing this again.

Smells of Pils malt sweetness and spicy Saaz-like hops with some obvious skunking (green bottles!!). Still not bad though. The flavor is right there also, first the malts make themselves known, but then the minerally hop bitterness comes in and gives the beer a drying impression. Overall, not that much different that some other green bottle Pils', but maybe not so one-dimensional as Urquell and a bit smoother on the palate. Probably would get consistenly higher ratings if they switched from the green bottles.
