Sweet and sour drying lemon Pils
A: Bright sunny yellow hazy body with a fleeting one finger off white head.
S: Quite bright, lemony, and perfumy, almost like a salty lemon shake-up, with just a touch of lightly buttered but still dry biscuit malt below. Very refreshing, but very bold... could be more inviting.
T: Lemon flavors come out in force, sweet and sour alike, as well as earthy tone and a strong general drying bitterness. Malt is also not in short supply, being of the buttered biscuit variety from the nose. It's a very potent flavor experience, but I don't feel that it's blended all that artfully. Finish is dry and slightly sour.
M: High carbonation keeps the ample body from becoming too heavy. A fine grained texture.
O: Makes a statement, but kind of a crass one. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

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...
