3.3/5 rDev +6.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Bottle: standard 330mL green bottle, pretty ordinary looking macro label.
Appearance: pale golden yellow with a thin layer of loose bubbly head that disipates quickly.
Aroma: the aroma is grassy and slightly malty with faint grainy notes and a corn-like sweetness. Not terribly appealing.
Taste: cereal grains up front with a touch of grassy hops. Not overly sophisticated, but not bad.
Aftertaste: lingers slightly. The cereal disappears and more of the grassy hops come through.
Mouthfeel: light body, per the style. Reasonably high in carbonation, nice and refreshing.
Overall: Quite a good standard pilsener. Doesn't try to blow its trumpet too hard - just a good quality, refreshing beer for a good price (AU$43 a case in 2012).

3.39/5 rDev +9.7%

The appearance is very good on this beer. Streaming carbonation and very good lacing and head retention.
The aroma is sweet and has notes of herbal hops, mineral water and sugar.
The taste is sweer with a slight bitter finish. One can tell it is attempting to emulate a good German pilsener. The taste is a little light with no off notes but nothing outstandingly pleasing either.
Mouthfeel is of mineral water,
Overall this beer is a lesser version of a German pilsner. They've added rice and made the flavour a little more bland. It is, however, an ok tasting beer and would suffice as a session beer with more quality than many European macro lagers. Better than Stella, Heineken etc.
My mark out of one hundred would be 75.
