look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12 oz. bottle, with some sort of bottling code on the bottleneck. Acquired as part of the variety twelve pack from the local Jewel.

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A - It pours a slightly murky golden yellow orange. One finger of frothy white head with decent staying power. Leaves some scattered spotty lacing. Looks good for what it is.

S - The aroma is grainy and lightly herbal / fruity. A bit of bready / crackery pilsner malt. Fairly basic, but appealing enough.

T - Taste follows the nose - fairly basic, but appealing enough. Bready, malty, and indistinctly fruity.

M - The feel is smooth, crisp, and clean. Light-bodied and easy drinking.

Overall, an average example of a pilsner from these guys, but it works well enough for me. Not something to seek out, but it would definitely be a nice beer to have if there are lesser options available.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle to a Stella Artois goblet.

A: Nice clear, deep golden. 1 finger white head. Decent carbonation.
S: white bread. a bit yeasty. hint of spicyness from the noble hops.
T: Light saltine cracker malt. Hint of cinnamon from the hops. Sweetens as it goes down. Slight aftertaste.
M: Light bodied. Fizzy feel. Goes down pretty smooth.
O: Better than the regular domestic beers, with a bit of nice zest from the hops. Very sessionable and with a decent amount of flavor. Drinkability is through the roof.

I've said before that I'm not impressed with Dundee, it holds true here. There pilsner, was, however, less offensive and really just bland. Not a whole lot of clean herbal flavor, which I like in a pilsner. Somewhat watered down and too sweet. Nice carbonation, however, and rather refreshing. Easy to drink, but not really worth drinking. More of a pale adjunct lager in most regards.

12oz bottle kindly gifted - thanks Dave - poured into conical pint glass

Straw colored, wispy, rapidly dissipating white head, moderate carbonation apparent

Very clean aroma: mineral water, white bread, soda crackers; if I'm not imagining, a glimmer of noble hops. Good pils smell.

Slightly sweet up front. Quality pils malt, mingled with a very pleasant floral and herbaceous hoppy flavor and moderate bitterness. I wish it finished (and even started) somewhat dryer, though.

Good drinkable mouthfeel, not too thick or thin, gets the job done. The excessive sweetness gives a slightly "sticky" impression on the finish, though.

Overall a very solid European-style pilsner, exceptionally clean and distinct flavors, just could use a bit more dryness especially in the finish.
