Poured from a bottle into a pilsner glass.
A - Just slightly hazy straw yellow, with a two-finger snow white head of tiny, tiny bubbles. Fantastic rings of lacing.
S - Clean biscuit malts and leafy, spicy hops. Smells Bavarian, but without any of that "stale hop" smell sometimes found in the style.
T - Wow. Taste matches the nose, with delicate white bread malt perfectly balanced with peppery, slightly citric (lemon) hops. Flavors are full. Clean. FRESH. Tastes like it was bottled yesterday.
M - Light bodied, with a dry finish. Slightly fizzy carbonation. Perfect for the style.
O - Simply the best pilsner I have ever tasted. It's not only about what's there, but also about what's NOT there; no stale, skunky, or "off" flavors, just clean pilsner taste in a richer package than expected. I honestly can't imagine how it can be improved. When I want a pilsner, this is the beer I will be drinking.

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.

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...
