Appearance - A golden color with a good, white head on top. Left a lot of lacing in the glass.
Smell - I was really blown away by this at first because it was so unusual. My first smell reminded me of freshly cut grass. Then I noticed a tad of a hop scent, but the grassy notes were very strong. Some graininess in there, too. An odd combo...well, at least one I have yet to sample.
Taste - Took me a few sips to get what was in this. I detect hops, but with a maltiness and some sort of foliage type taste in there. The grassy-like taste came through more as it warmed. Very new flavor combos for me. Pretty cool stuff.
Mouthfeel - This is a bitey beer at first. Feels strong as it clings to the tongue. The sips get easier and easier as time goes on, but is a kick upon first entry.
Drinkability - This was an odd flavor at first, but I did pour another right after finishing the first. The combination of flavors was very interesting, and warranted more attention. Low alcohol in this one, so can be consumed rather easily. I'd reccommend it for a new Pils experience.

I recently tried it when in the UK and I am seriously surprised that something like this is sold. It's pretty much like a homebrewer's first pils. It is nowhere near the subtley balanced flavours other examples such as Pilsner Urquell display.
The taste is quite harsh, steely. The body is way too thin and lacks just a little bit of the sweetness that is necessary for even the dry beers like "Flensburger" or "Jever".
I'd go back to the drawing board with this one...
