A mild tasting, low body, clear looking and clean pilsner. Some bready characteristics and light hops flavor. Not ordinarily something that I would have on a regular basis. However, being that I was at a European style tavern run by and patronized by people from various parts of the former Yugoslavia, the mood was perfect. Furthermore, the spicy sausage I ate with it was the perfect counterpoint.

Clear dark golden body and a thin soapy white head that leaves some lace.

Herbal and grassy hop with some biscuit malt.

Light hop notes with the bigger malty/grainy contribution. Not the best of flavors.

Light bodied with some nice little scrubby carbonation.

Decent enough beer.

Light golden, with the typical thin head.
Grainy nose, like a first pressing of grain.
Taste of apples. First mouthful sifts into a bitter afterbite that is the primary reason I don't like pilseners to begin with.
Second mouthful, not so bad. Maybe I should have cleansed better beforehand.

Same thin, limpid pilsener feel in the mouth. Nothing much happening.
Not bad for a pilsener, but I probably should have tried it in on a sunny May or June afternoon, instead of a rainy October evening.

A: Poured from a bottle to a pilsner glass. Had a golden yellow color and a clear texture. There was a big, creamy, fairly long-lasting head. Good lacing.

S: A strong skunky quality is apparent the second you open the bottle, but there are traces of hops and malt mixed in. An uneven smell.

T: Tasted of light hops, light malt and the aforementioned skunkiness. Pilsner flavors typically aren't overly complex, but this one doesn't reach the heights of the best of the style. It isn't hops forward enough, nor does it have a strong citrus presence. Not awful, but could have been better.

M: A decent amount of carbonation with a smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

O: This is a pretty standard mass produced pilsner. It seems to be designed less to impress the drinker and more to sell.

Has a pleasant aroma that can't put my finger on as to what it is, but nothing I have experienced in another pilsner, or any other beer. Otherwise, the beer has the typical light body of a pilsner, along with a mild bitterness.

Pretty good beer if you're looking for something on the lighter side.
