Poured from a 16.9 ounce can into an 8 ounce sampler. There is no indication of the brewery location on the can- if I didn't know any better, I might assume Denmark. A moderate pour threatened to overfill the glass. I back off, let the head subside a little, and top it off. The head is snow white and fairly sticky. The beer is a pale golden with moderate carbonation.
The beer has a very light aroma not easily detectable, but basically just a light lager aroma with just a touch of skunk and very very subtle aromatic hops. A little bit of hop bitterness is detectable on the back of the tongue. Some mineral qualities are also apparent. The beer has a fairly dry, clean finish. Some pleasant burpiness ensues. This brings out maybe a little bit of a very subtle caramel flavor with a little metal and some alcohol.
This beer is easy drinking and lacks any strong adjuncty flavors and is a pretty good session brew, but nothing very distinguished. I think I paid around 8 bucks for a four pack of pint-plus cans, which isn't too bad of a deal. This beer is only available in one store in my town that I know of (Hennesey Grocery).

Had a bottle at a Calgary Pub in the Kensington area with dinner, poured into a pub glass. Looks darker than many other Euro lagers, a yellow to just shy of amber hue with a smattering of white bubbles. Smells like grainy pale malt, grassy and slightly spicy hops, skunk, and a decent whiff of sulphur. Palate features a light cracker malt backbone, some DMS, green grassy hops, subdued lemon and lime rind, white grape notes, and a noticeable but reduced residual sweetness compared to many of its Euro pale lager cousins; perhaps this is what earns it a bona-fide pils designation. Very fizzy and light-bodied as one would expect, yet reasonably creamy and smooth. Not too bad all things considered. The usual flaws found in green-bottled mass market imports are reduced or absent. Considerably better than Heineken (to name but one example) even if it remains pretty mainstream in overall feel.

Pours clear and golden color. Medium head (two fingers), white and with decent retention.
Medium hoppy aroma, not too strong nor too weak.
Sweetness in the beginning, slightly watery body (not too much) and some small bitterness in the finish.
Light, drinkable, refreshing.
