Pours a thin head on a clear golden body.
The aroma is not too pleasant, grain and dirt.
The taste is mild bitterness, watery, a little metallic finish.
The texture is crisp.
Not good.

33cl brown glass bottle with branded pry-off pressure cap acquired at a supermarket in Bucharest, Romania, and served into a pilsner glass in me friend's gaff there. Reviewed live. Expectations are average. 4.80% ABV. Best before: 27.10.14. Reviewed as a pilsner for obvious reasons.

Served cold. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

No bubble show forms as it's poured.

HEAD: One finger wide. Off-white colour. Fairly thin. Lacks any frothiness or creaminess whatsoever. Recedes fully within 2 minutes, leaving no lacing.

BODY: Clear translucent honey copper. Clean; no floating yeast particles or hoppy sediment are/is visible. Average vibrance.

Looks adequately carbonated. This is a pretty standard appearance for a pilsner; nothing stands out as unique or special. I find it generally appealing.

AROMA: Bland pilsner malts and accompanying sweetness. Generic barley. Graininess. Grassy hop character. Honey malts. The honey sweetness is a bit much for a pilsner, and I'd prefer more of a dry grassy aroma, but there aren't any off-notes present.

A pleasant aroma of average strength. It's not anything special, but it fits in with style conventions.

TASTE/TEXTURE: Clean pilsner malts, generic barley, some honey malt sweetness, and faint grassy hop character. It isn't the crisp clean pilsner I hoped for, and lacks much flavour.

No yeast character, alcohol, or off-notes are present. The flavours are quite shallow, but it doesn't come off muted or reticent per se - just boring and fairly insipid. Average duration and intensity of flavour.

OVERALL: It's definitely a supermarket pilsner, but it's better than many of the Romanian offerings I've tried lately. Can't say it can compete with the best Czech-brewed - or even other German-brewed - offerings in the style, but it's a nice little budget pils and I'll enjoy finishing the bottle, even if it's unremarkable overall. You could do worse.
