Got at Trader Joe's. Nice easy Pilsner. Nothing more nothing less.

Definitely a European Lager and not a US Pils macrobrew.

A = poured in a pint glass, has nice yellow gold clear appearance, pours with a nice fluffy white head that quickly dissipates to decent lacing and rimming for a little while.

S = nice active nose going on here, roasted malts and some bread, light sweetness and some enjoyable Noble hops notes.

T = much like the scent, it reminds me of something like a Sapporo but not a Pauler, for instance. Clean, with nice malts, slightly sweet yet slightly hops-bitterness. Fairly well balanced, I'm surprised it doesn't get higher scores.

F = satisfying, going well now with some pizza. Would be fairly versatile in the pairings. The finish now seems to have hints of ginger ale but it's still tasting good overall.

O = overall this is a great deal from Trader Joe's, and given to me by one of their regular shoppers.

A solid Euro-style lager. Nice color and easy to drink. Maybe could be more flavorful but nothing off-putting.

16.9 oz can into a pub glass. Tastes like a subpar pilsner. Kind of metallic. There's a lot better out there. Decent looking beer though.
