look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pours a very pale straw with a giant white head. Stringy lacing. Nose is malty, faint grassy hops, grain. Ultra-light body. Crisp. Slightly sour, grainy malt, noble hops, unripe green apple nice it's ok.

Clear pale yellow with a finger of white head. Beer smell. Moderately creamy mouthfeel with some fresh cut grass and biscuit-like malts in the taste. Easy drinking.

This is a refreshing lager, very flavor, fine! An excellent choice to drink with quality into hot afternoons

A pretty mediocre example of the pilsner style. This pils is quite light, lacks flavor and body. Not worth the money.

Pretty light & refreshing. As others have stated, this makes a great summer drink. They do go down smooth & easy.

look: 4 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Look: Great white fluffy head sticks around much longer than I was expecting. Light yellowish. Good Carbonation.

Smell: Biscuity. Light hops come off a little tin-y (probably because this was poured from a 11.2 ounce can). Smells very much as a Pilsner should, just a little off.

Taste: Very bready. Weird bitter finish. Tin is still there. meh.

Feel: I actually really like the body on this one. A little bigger than other Pils I've had. pretty creamy.

Overall: Pretty Okay. Nearly good. The metallic undertones are unpleasant. No thumbs up or down, only shoulders shrugged in indifference.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Served cold from 660ml bottle into Veltins pilsner mug.

L) Pale golden, clear, lots of bubbles. Thin bubbly white head.

S) Slightly sour bready pilsner malt.

T) Kinda flat, with hints of bready pilsner malt. Subtle hop bitterness. Doesn't have either of the notable classic pilsner characteristics to any large degree. Has a watery / metallic edge. Just drunk a Pilsner Urquell, so maybe this seems a bit flavourless in comparison.

F) Light and refreshing, at least there is no long bitter aftertaste to detract from the refreshment.

O) Subtly flavoured pilsner. Mid range on quality, but a decent price for a 660ml bottle, so overall I am satisfied.

Clear yellow with small amount of foam and not much bubbles in glass.
Clean, not overly carb'd. Smooth, balanced flavor.
Decent german pilsner.

Poured a fluffy white 2-finger head of foam with sticky lace left over; yellow and translucent color; a lot of carbonation. Smelled like metallic malt and a bit of funk; going in was sweet malt, followed by a malty-dry, yet slightly flowery and peppery aftertaste; some bitterness lingered. My senses picked up a lighter bodied carbonated and quaffable brew with a crispness that was satisfying. If offered, I'd imbibe. It is a standard international German beer with not a lot to say about it, but better than BMC in my opinion.

Very good tasting and very smooth going down. Very mild beer with no after taste. For your average "middle of the road" brew in my opinion a very formidable beer.

Sampling right now on 5/12/15 but had this before, though it has been several years. Comes in a 330ml (11.2 ounce bottle). Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a vintage "WARSTEINER" 0.2l flute glass.

Brew pours a straw-yellow in color with a thin white foamy head that sticks around for a good while. Some spotty sheet lacing is seen when sipped. The aroma is of some yeast and grass for the most part. The taste is pretty much the same with a touch of sweetness that has a slightly dry bitter finish but doesn't last long. Lighter bodied with lots of carbonation as seen by the amount of bubbles rising from the sides and bottom of the glass. Overall, it was OK but nothing really special.

I had it before and was not expecting much but this is actually a decent macro Pils. The metallic touch feels a bit artificial though, like it happens with the Pilsner Urquell and other beers (i guess the hop extracts has something to do with it).

*transferred from previous notes 1/22/2014*
12 oz bottle poured into a 6oz english tulip. Yeast is the primary aroma emanating from this one. Some minor floral and grassy notes appear faintly along with (maybe) some black pepper traces - but the yeast dominates. It pours a straw bubbly yellow with a soft whipped-egg-white foamy head. The taste is mellow sweet with some very light, light souring. Not much bitterness, although what’s there does come through at the finish. It’s a light bodied, dry, thin beer with active carbonation. On the tongue, some lemon citrus comes through initially which slips into a weak floral hoppy finish which then disappears quickly - mostly a clean finish.

The beer up front offers grassy hops, with some honey sweetness and breadiness. There's a touch of metallic flavor with some bitterness that lingers throughout.

A decent traditional German pilsner.

Straw appearance with a bubbly, white head. Grassy hops are prominent in the aroma with some malt in the background. Flavor has a good balance of malt and hops. It has a slight hint of bitterness on the finish. Very appealing. Medium mouthfeel. Smooth, semi-dry finish. Overall, This is a wonderful beer! Easy going. I'll definitely drink this one again.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Clear yellow with a thick white head and heavy lacing on the glass.

Smell: Hops and grassy notes.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth light bodied. Taste of light hops with a sweet upfront taste and mild bitter throughout.

Overall: Not bad at all. Good German brew.

Classic German pilsener which does the job as a thirst quencher pretty well.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Look: Looks great! Has a great foam and body.

Smell: Nothing very odd here. Smells like any other beer with nothing particularly complex.

Taste: The taste comes off initially sweet... But then it hits you with sour. Not bitter. Sour.

Feel: Once again, I can't really detect anything particularly special about this. It feels like a Pilsner should

Overall, I'd say this is a run-of-the-pilsner, but the taste is just not good. I'm not fond of it.
