12 oz. bottle at refrigerator temperature poured into a snifter. Bottle says "Enjoy by Aug 09 09." So, this is not the freshest bottle available, I suppose...
A - Pale straw yellow body with an airy cloud-white head that fades into splotches across the top.
S - Smells pretty crisp and clean, with a touch of pungency. Light citrus notes, acacia honey, and lightly pungent hop character work well together.
T - Not boring, as many German-style Pilseners can be to me. Lightly hoppy, with both pungent/bitter notes and sweeter citrusy notes working well together.
M - Light in body, high carbonation, what did you expect? Pretty true to style, I'd say.
D - A very well-crafted and tasty Pilsener. A great option for anyone looking for a cold, crisp brew on a hot day. While this is certainly not the kind of brew that will blow you away, it's very difficult to say anything negative about a well-made German-style Pilsener. Now, it's a matter of getting beer like this into our baseball stadiums and big music venues...

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...
