Loath the green bottle and I would never buy this puppy off the shelf in the light of day. So while in the freezer at the local I came across a closed fresh case picked up a six. Nice clear golden color with a decent with head that seems to have some staying power. Smells of light pilsen malt with a delicate, subtle hop presence. The taste is surprisingly well rounded no skunk and the body is rather hefty. This is a poundable pils and pretty damn good one at that. But do you need it imported only to be destroyed in green bottles?

500mL can, date stamped 275/13, so I'm assuming it was canned on October 2, 2013. Maybe a bit past its prime, but I'm sure it hasn't been affected a whole lot, if any.
L - golden with nice clarity, fizzy white head dissipates quickly
S - grain, spicy grassy noble hop, yeast
T - grass, possible adjunct grain, spicy noble hop
F - dry and crisp, lighter body
O - this was always in my father-in-law's fridge and I hated it so much, but coming back to it, it's not that bad. I'd rather drink something else, but it's not as terrible as I remember.

Pours golden and is very clear.. good head on this one that slowly fades
Smells grassy with a hint of apricot?
Tastes pretty good.. a smooth drop with a slight hint of floral hops (minimal but there)
For the price this is a very good buy. Will be getting a few next time.
