Picked up a .5L swingtop from EuroMarket in Astoria. It poured a tall white head that left a little lacing and had a sweet bready aroma with a hint of cider. The malts are bland in the flavor, but there is a very pleasant, smooth spicy hop bitterness that quickly takes over and drowns out the sugary malt. It's drinkable, but I'd like a more barley-like taste before those lovely hops roll in. Maybe the bottle's old or been abused, but there's no dating or dust of the bottle, so I'll assume the best. Not a bad beer, but I'd certainly prefer a Pilsner Urquell.

12 oz bottle without a freshness date. Pours a mostly clear, dark gold color with a thin, bubbly white head. Retention is poor and does not give much of a chance for lacing.

Nose is pleasantly grainy with a light touch of floral hops. Not much though, I could certainly use some more cones here.

Taste is not bad, lacks some saaz hop flavoring, but has a nice, leafy bitterness on the finish that grabs on well. Grains are honeyed with a little bit of toast, which explains the darker color of this pilsner. A little undercarbonated and not as crisp as I would like, but on the other hand it has a full body and plenty of flavor. This is a pretty tasty, albeit not very classical, take on the style. Worth a purchase if you know you are getting it fresh.

Poured from a green 12 oz. bottle. Has a golden color with a small head. Smell is grainy and skunky. Taste is crisp, malts up front and finishing bitter. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and has average drinkability. Overall I would consider this a decent brew.
