look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

500 ml can from LCBO for $2.25 CDN poured into a pint glass.

Appearance - Light golden color looks very clean and poured with 2 fingers of head and decent retention. While the head dis there it looks nice and creamy on top. Minimal bubbles rising to the top even just after the pour. Some lacing left in the glass.

Smell- Faint grainy smells, grassy as well. Faint hops are also there. Don't know if it was because the beer was from a can but almost a metallic scent as well.

Taste- Clean, crisp with some bitterness. Any hops and malts flavors imbued in this beer are very faint and barely detectable.

Mouthfeel - Nice and wet. Medium low carbonation that gives the beer a certain fullness. Nonetheless not thin, but not as full as other pilseners I've tasted.. Soft finish and minimal aftertaste is pleasant.

Overall - a good pilsener that is better than many, but wish there was a little more in the aroma department up front. Certainly a thirst quencher, but would prefer other pilseners in comparison to this one.

Serving type: can

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Bottled 2/5/13. Best before 2/5/14.

Pours a clear gold with a foamy off-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Thin rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is intensely skunky after the pour but it dissipates over time and gives way to some malt, grain, and grassy aromas. Taste is much the same with grain and grassy flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is drinkable but the initial blast of skunk is quite unpleasant.

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

A - This one is almost clear with only the slightest hint of a haze, and the color is a dull light-yellow-bronze. The head is about two solid fingers of white crispy foam, and a good amount of fluffy lace is left on the glass.

S - Fresh biscuits and crackers. This isn't as "saltine" smelling as others of the style, but it still has that cracker note... just minus the salt. I detect what reminds me of freshly baked warm white bread like the Amish make.

T - Like the nose, this is a lot like warm white bread and dinner rolls. This is less hoppy than some other German pilseners, and the overall flavor is more malty and a tad fruity. There are little hints of apricot on the back end, but the fruit is only barely noticeable.

M - Light bodied, crisply carbonated, and clean with a fluffy feeling left in the mouth after swallowing. that fluff only serves to increase the general "loaf of airy white bread" like Sunbeam sliced bread that I'm getting here.

D - Extremely quaffable and easy drinking. Lacks the complexity of some of the better examples of the style, but its still a pleasing beer to slake a thirst after a workout (as I'm doing just now). Not bad, but slightly forgettable. This is one of those beers that I'll probably pick up again without realizing that I've already tried it... then I'll get home and check BA and be slightly aggravated that I didn't recall ever having it. (That happens a lot with German beers since all of the bottles have the same shape and many of the labels lack the cartoony or artistic imagination of Belgian or American breweries).
