Brief write-up. Had this at a restaurant last night...and it wasn't that skunked?! In fact, I don't recall much skunk at all. Granted, the nose wasn't anything inspiring (it was a typical Euro lager aroma, nothing more), but it wasn't some light-struck disaster. The flavor profile was a bit better. Granted, it was a bit sweet for a pilsner - with its slight bubblegum and nutty flavors, it reminded me of a typical Euro lager more than anything. I get no notes of corn or cooked veggies. In fact, it finished with a slight hoppiness, though it remained fairly sweet throughout. When it's not skunked, however, this honestly shits all over BMC/Stella/Heineken from a great height.

2.81/5: Eat your heart out, BMC

Clear, yellow color with minimal bubbles steaming up the glass. White head that retains as a very small ring.

Grassy, hoppy aroma.

Very light flavor: a grain backbone, with lots of freshly cut grass. Very slight carbonation bite at the end.

Light and watery mouthfeel.

Went finish.

Pauli's girl is a bit skunked.very grainy to me but I jerk'd off twice to the smokin' hot blonde on the bottle so I guess you could say this beer hit the spot.

Used to drink this a lot in high school. Thought it was good until I had something truly good.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured from 12 oz bottle into pilsner glass

Appearance: pours a 1+" frothy head that drops slowly. Color is clear pale straw with mild streaming carbonation.

Aroma: initially a bit of skunk (green bottle) once that subsided, some mild sweet malt and grassiness.

Mouthfeel: light and watery with a somewhat dry finish.

Flavor: sweet yeast rolls with a mild hop bite that lingers in the finish.

Overall: nothing offensive (other than the initial skunk), but not near the best in this style.

This is my absolute favorite beer of all time. I think it tastes great, even if it does not have a reputation of being an excellent beer. To me, it is just a higher quality, slightly more sophisticated version of domestic party and game-day beers like Budweiser and Miller, and if that does't sound appealing to you, then I don't know what to tell you.

Traditional german taste. Great pilsner. Reminds me a lot of Heineken but tastes better to me.

picked up because I love the style and knew it came from an area that I know I like the beer. a finger head and golden color. smell is a bit skunky. the taste is clean, crisp, refreshing, maybe a very tiny bit skunky but in a good way. on the same level as Becks for me. if I wanted this style, I'd go to this or Becks. good beer.

A light lager, easy drinking. Not much complexity but that is the point.

Poured into a pint glass and the color reminded me much of that of Miller Lite. Golden in color with a head that does not last more than a few seconds. I personally enjoyed the taste of this beer as it goes down smooth and very drinkable. Taste was good, not great but good. I bought a 12 pack and shared them with the guys and they thought it was quite good as well. Feel- smooth. Overall i was happy with the beer and enjoy how easy it is to drink.

Very smooth drinking beer with a good taste. I think it fills that niche well. I'd recommend it. Think Stella Artois or Pilsner Urquell
