Like many others, I'm reviewing this for old times' sake and because it was marked down....I go with an aggressive pour from a 22 ounce green bomber produces about a 3/4 inch head that settles quickly but does stick pretty well. It's a medium straw color with carbonation just a little on the high side. It has a sparkle to it and looks kinda pretty.

Skunky and floral aromas and flavors. I suppose there are noble hops present but the skunk overrides them to a large degree. It's really tough to detect any malt flavor. Thin mouth feel but fairly thirst quenching.

Granted that this isn't craft beer, it's not swill either. I remember me and a friend getting this or St. Pauli on payday back in the stone age (1980s). We thought we were pretty darn worldly and sophisticated! I sometimes still like beers such as Becks or Heinies for the lawnmowing or fence painting. I had not tried a Becks in awhile. I might have to go for a St. Pauli next.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Format: a slim 330mL green bottle with a decent macro label.

Appearance: a light yellow colour with a small white head that drops away pretty quickly.

Aroma: some florals and some citrus, but really quite light in aroma. A touch of malt.

Taste: malts with a small amount of caramel and that citrus again. Okay at best.

Aftertaste: not much on the finish - not even a skerrick of bitterness.

Mouth feel: lighter in body with a pretty weak carbonation. Not the best.

Overall: not the best pilsener I have had by a pretty large margin. It is cheap at AU$39 a case, so take your pick I guess.
