Poured into a tall pilsner glass from a 12oz brown bottle. Pale yellow straw color with loads of tiny bubbles. Nice three finger head with decent retention. Smell of grain, hay, and alfalfa. Very smooth, light and delicate with some citrus, malt, and biscuity flavor. Nice and refreshing, kind of oily in the mouth with a dry finish. Very easy to drink, it reminds me of the "old version" of Pilsner Urquell before they switched to stainless steel.
I am not an expert on Pilsners, but this is definitely one of my favorites.

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...
