One of the two best Pils I can remember drinking, the other Holsten Pils. The beer poured a very clear gold with a white head. While receding , the head clung to the glass leaving nice looking lace work. The smell was a nice balance between the sweet malts and spicy hops. It felt very nice in the mouth; not too heavy, but not on the light side either. A slight, and I say again, slight bitter aftertaste was present. Final outcome, this is/was a great tasting pilsner. It’s very drinkable and I’m highly looking forward to the next one!

Next to Pilsner Urquell, this is my favorite “non ale” beer, as it epitomizes the mastery of the brewer’s art. The beer pours a liquid gold with a modest head and the color bright white, as it evaporates the laces forms a satin curtain to drape the glass. Nose is malt, citrus crisp and clean, sweet as is the malt start with a top skinny in feel. The finish has medium acidity with the hops perky in their spiciness, quite dry and long lasting aftertaste, and one well worth the try

3.53/5  rDev -5.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a golden-yellow color, average fizzy foamy white head, light grainy and flowery aroma. Grainy and mild sweetness turns to a hoppy and bitter dryness in the finish. Light bodied with a fizzy watery mouthfeel, very clean and crisp, this is a very good pils.

Pours a clear pale straw color with a thin white head. Aroma is dominated by sweet malts and fresh baked bread with some floral notes. It is quite crisp and refreshing in the mouth with a nice flavor mix of sweet malts and bitter hops. One of the top Pilsners on the market.

4.43/5  rDev +18.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

Pours a glowing straw gold body topped by a frothy bright white head that holds quite well. It eventually receeds but keeps a thin surface covering and leaves some very nice lace. The nose is fragrant with a bright, fresh, sweet malt atop a light grassy, floral and mildly spicy hop aroma. The body is medium with a very fine and moderate carbonation that's lightly crisp in the mouth. The flavor is more hoppy than the aroma indicates with a firm bitterness and floral/grassy hop flavor. Well balanced. It finishes dry, crisp and clean with just some minor residual sweet malt and lingering bitterness. Very refreshing! A nice, easy finish. Overall, it seems to fall somewhere between a Bohemian and German Pils. Very well done and exceptionally drinkable.

Hot summer day guzzlin truly make this a "Crown Pils of Europe." Similar to the czechs' Pilsner Urquell. Elegant in both presentation and flavor, Premium Pils' big, dry, hoppy head takes from 7 to 10 minutes to pour properly. The results are bright color, a light, crisp taste and the traditional dry, hoppy Pils finish. Naturally dry, hoppy finish.

Very, very solid pils.
Pours golden with nice effervescence.
Floral hop aroma.
Also floral on the buds, with a faint lemon rind kick. Bready maltiness backs this up. Finishes with more hops, and some lingering, pleasant grassy flavor.
Light, and easy to drink, yet holds the attention with it's presence in the mouth.
Great hot weather brew

Had this on tap. Beatiful golden color with carbonation evident. Nice maltiness on the nose as well as a flowery hop boquet. Very nice taste. Has a bit of a bite, but is very easy to drink. Great pils maltiness. Could drink a lot of these.

3.65/5  rDev -2.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Presentation: 12oz Euro style brown bottle with a freshness date stamped on the lower right hand corner of the label.

Appearance: Crystal clear shimmering bright pale golden brew, the mid-sized bubbles race to the top to keep the white lace in good form.

Smell: Fresh baked bulky rolls come to mind, malt sweetness is present as well as a delicate herbal hop aroma. Fresh aromatics entice the nose.

Taste: Very smooth and increasingly crisp mouth feel within the deceptive medium body. Swirling malt flavours wrap around the taste buds leaving bread crust flavours, very well structured malt profile with a lightness yet not lacking in complexity at all. Hops are solely one flavour that is like a wave in the tide of bitterness, perfectly round bitterness blankets the palate with a balancing effect. Herbal hop flavour surrounds the tongue with a soft and pleasant taste throughout. Clean other than some low level grainy husk flavour, alcohol is faint but slightly warming. Fresh cut hay in the mouth during the finish, not dry and not sweet but somewhere in between (even though it says extra dry on the label this is still not a "dry" beer compared to other lager or pilsners in around the world).

Notes: Tasty little pils here, well place flavours and relatively delicate other than the husk character. A clean and fresh example to the euro pilsner style and great for someone that wants to jump ship from the big macro lager freighter.
