Looks like a really good pilsner and doesn't disapoint! A white head forms over a crystal clear light golden body with lots of bubbly. The head settles right away and leaves swirls and some lace, standard for a pilsner in a good way.
Smells a tad skunky and hoppy. Not bad though.
The taste honeyish without being particularly sweet, malty and balanced with a perfect touch of bitterness.
Strongly carbonated, crisp and clean!
I could drink quite a few of these on a sunny day.. hope they are still available come cookout season!

On draft at Buen Apetito Mexican Restaurant in Waterville, Maine. Served in a 16-ounce shaker glass.
Appearance - bubbly, clear, and yellow;
Smell - Slight floral hop aroma that grew as the lager warmed;
Taste - Dry and refreshing with a floral hop taste in the finish;
Mouthfeel - thoroughly carbonated and not watery;
Overall - One of the best lagers that I've had. This is what green bottled Euro beers should probably taste like if they weren't always skunked.
Serving type: on-tap

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...
