Got this classic 500mL bottle at The Drink Store in Stoneybatter.
Pours a light pale/clear color with a nice 1.5 finger off-white bubbly head. Some carbonation in the pour and the head drops down to a nice light bubbly film.
Smells of a pilsner/lager with some very light fruits/hops/bitter tones. Definitely light though overall with some sweet notes detected at the end.
For a light, in appearance, beer there is actually a few things going on here which is nice in the taste. The light citrus notes come first, then a bit of sweet hops, and then finished with a slight bitterness. Nice. Reminds me alot of some Czech pilseners too.
This isn't a super-filling mouthfeel beer, but there is enough going on that it finishes nice and makes you want to take another sip and isn't too full.
I could have another one of these and would definitely see how if the weather was warmer in the sun I could down a couple of these no problem.

I got this at the Binny's store in Bloomingdale, IL. $2.99 for a 330ml brown bottle with a ceramic flip top cap. There is a best before freshness date stamped on the bottom of the back label. Mine is marked 8/12/14, so it's still plenty fresh.
The beer poured a mostly clear pale gold color with a 2½-finger fluffy white head that lasted several minutes. There was also a fair amount of thick lacing left on the glass.
Rather weak nose. Just picking up a little grassy hops.
Stronger than anticipated hop presence here. It's a bit bitter, but there's plenty of bready malt and lemon twang to keep it balanced. The bitterness continues to linger in the aftertaste.
Light to medium body with moderate to medium carbonation.
This is a decent German pilsener.
