So I picked this up at Crazy Bruce's in Bristol, CT, as part of a mix-a-six. Poured it into a Guiness glass.

Way too cold (straight out of the fridge) when I first smelled and tasted it. No smell, lots of carbonation and a little bit of skunk. So I let it sit for 20 minutes. While it sat, I noticed very little head which dissipated in no time, and no lacing.

As it warmed, I got more of a typical pils aroma with a hint of skunk, not in a bad way. Very light, crisp, and...pilsener-ish. Not a fan of pilseners, but this one actually seemed to have more body as it got warmer.

For a guy who thinks all pilseners taste the same, I actually kinda enjoyed this one. The skunkiness was just enough to make it interesting. If you're into pilseners, you'll like this one well enough. I'll be going back to my ales, stouts, and porters.

Nice color, clear slightly golden yellow. Pours a 2 finger head and keeps a thin cap. Very smooth and easy drinking, with a present but light hop bitterness. Slight skunkiness. Overall it is an alright beer that I would drink again (and have had before), but not seek out to buy. A 3.5 for a little better than okay.

Overall enjoyable beer. I first had this during a trip to Germany many moons ago. The Germans don't serve it quite as cold as I like my beer, but it still holds up even at 42 degrees without tasting skunky.
