look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: The same gold shade seen in most macrobrews. Good head that dissipates quickly, thin lacing.

Smell: Faint grainy grassy aroma. Basically, it smells like beer.

Taste: Grainy and grassy. Basically, it tastes like beer.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with almost no aftertaste.

The Verdict: Average. If you're looking for an affordable alternative to Heineken or Budweiser, this German beer would be a good choice. Drinkable, but forgettable.

500ml can, drank outta the can

can't comment on the look as it's in the can. smell is corny with some stanky hops and a metallic tinge. taste is light wheat, dusty grain. tastes like a metal table dusted with powdered sugar. 

ok lager with a sweet, nasty metallic zip to it.

Peter’s Brand has a thick, slightly off-white head, a clear, bubbly, deep golden appearance, and a heavy lacing sheen left behind on the glass. The aroma is of pungent, buttery, malt, and the flavor is of sweet, biscuit-like malt, grassy hops, and subdued sugars. Bitterness is appropriate. Mouthfeel is tending towards light and watery, and Peter’s Brand finishes mostly dry, refreshing, and enjoyable. For a private label brand (and, for beer in general) this is a good one.

This beer's color is the color of your piss after a long night of drinking. IT looks a little dark for a pilsner. The smell isn't too pungent which is a bad thing. THe taste is slightly atringent but it follows with that European crispness. The mouth is a little heavy. but overall it's a decent beer. I'd say this is my beach beer.

A medium sized white head quickly falls into a thin lacing above a clear bright golden colored pils.

Sour to light skunky grain malt with some light hops characteristics sneaking in the aroma of this beer.

Light sour to skunky grain malt with some bittering hops aiding in the taste.

A light dry aftertaste with just a bit of the sourness hanging around on this light bodied beer.

Not much to brang about here, standard light sour to skunky pilsener, next.

Another TJs bargain grab. Poured into 9oz pilsener glass. Poured a typical clean, clear light gold color with about 1/2 inch of white head that had moderate retention and no lacing.

The aroma was kinda bland, some grains, a bit of sweetness, soft hops and just a general "beer" scent. The flavors were all the same benign, bland features that the aroma had, nothing really stood out.

The body was crisp and a bit fuller than most of the style. The beer was mostly clean across the tongue, but did have a slightly sweet finish. Drinkability was a bit better than average for the style, the beer went down quickly and easily enough. Overall, a good brew, one that's probably a bit better than average. If you're looking for a good bargain "chore beer", this would be a good choice.

Got this at Trader Joe's. Poured into a half liter dimple mug, and the brew makes a three finger thick bright white head, and the body is dark gold with perfect clarity.

The aroma is grain and husk, tobacco, lemon, and slight metallic.

Taste wise, it's of corn husk, tobacco, and maybe some butterscotch.

Feels light in body, cleansing to the palate, and very quaffable. Too much adjunct taste here for me to stick with a German Style Pilsner. I'd just claim this a typical Euro Lager.
