Looks a bit too orange for a pilsener in my opinion. Luckily it has foam and carbonation, which prevent the apple juice association. The smell and taste are fine on the malt, but a bit too sweet for my liking. Hop bitterness is lacking here. The beer is refreshing, but also quite watery. Not a great pilsener.

440 ml can in Oban Scotland. BB date of May 2017.

Clear golden body with a generous, durable foamy head. Nice lacing.
Medium-light with lively carbonation.
Plenty of earthy and floral hops in the aroma. These are more subdued in the flavor. Mild bitterness.
