Has a pleasant aroma that can't put my finger on as to what it is, but nothing I have experienced in another pilsner, or any other beer. Otherwise, the beer has the typical light body of a pilsner, along with a mild bitterness.

Pretty good beer if you're looking for something on the lighter side.

Light golden, with the typical thin head.
Grainy nose, like a first pressing of grain.
Taste of apples. First mouthful sifts into a bitter afterbite that is the primary reason I don't like pilseners to begin with.
Second mouthful, not so bad. Maybe I should have cleansed better beforehand.

Same thin, limpid pilsener feel in the mouth. Nothing much happening.
Not bad for a pilsener, but I probably should have tried it in on a sunny May or June afternoon, instead of a rainy October evening.

Pours pale golden, fizzy, and with a healthy head. In the nose, it's grainy and with a whiff of adjuncts. Tastes very light, grainy, and perhaps a bit corny. Very light hops. Not terrible, but not all that exciting. The mouthfeel is lightly grainy and soft. Overall this is okay in a pinch. If I were in the Balkans, I'd probably be fairly pleased to find this at a restaurant rather than some other terrible Euro-lager.

Pours a clear golden color with white head. Cereal grains on the nose; follows onto the palate. Light bodied. Finishes with much of the same, simple lager, yet crisp and clean. Not bad at all.
