Good head, very blonde.

Faint hop aroma, not much...just bubbles really.

Tastes only a bit...not really hops. Just a faint burnt malt flavour happening. It's not great. Not much more to say really...

From Hipercor. In Teku glass. Playing Mahluk. Nice aspect. However, the end of the sip is spoiled by an excessive grassy bitterness with metallic notes

Imported from Germany, but drank while in Shanghai on business. The local beers (non micro brew) have been so bad to buy in the store, figured I'd try a German one. At least they are dirt cheap.

Pours a large frothy head that fades fairly quickly, bits of sticky soapy lacing, crystal clear watery pilsner color.

Nose is mostly like a typical German pils, toasted pilsner malt, straw, touch of doughy malt, with grassy malts, into grassy hops, nice grassy noble hop presence, still fairly light.

Taste brings very light malts, very little malts in general, little straw and toasted pilsner malts, but not a whole lot. Touch of lager crispness, with decent grassy noble hops, which turn a bit spicy on the back end. As it finishes, this is where it gets bad, the grassy spicy hops kick up a bit, but the lager finish is just all metallic mess, really like I bit on aluminum foil, the taste and even the feel now cause my mind is not happy with the metal. The only solution is keep drinking before teh bad metallic taste kicks in.

Mouth is med to lighter bod, a touch of a soft lager.

Overall started OK, but quickly turned bad.

Clear & golden colour with a thin, bubbly white head that turns to a soapy lacing quite quickly.

Nothing really, some corn and a bit of a grassy hop aroma along with some cheap lager and a basic lager smell.

Basic in taste as well with some corn, bread and a faint hop taste on top of some biscuit and grain. Cheap and quite poor.

Grainy and slightly dry with medium carbonation and a bit of skunk to it as it is drunk.

A pretty cheap and slightly below average pale lager that didn't seem German at all and was a major disappointment when I tried it. There was not a lot going on and was mainly cheap grain and hops along with some lighter malts and a generally poor beer overall.

12oz Can from the SAQ for 1.80$

Appearance - Clear yellow colour with an average size fizzy white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some faint lacing. The head lasted for only a minute or two.

Smell - Malts, breads/grains, hay/straw/grass, corn

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts and corn syrup mixed with some grainy/grassy notes. It ends with a crisp herbal/grainy aftertaste.

Overall - Nothing really remarkable about this beer other than the fact that it is refreshing on this hot day. It's non offensive but nothing that really warrants drinking again.

Pale yellow color. Very clear. White foam head. Disappear quickly. The aroma presents notes of piny hops... this is a surprise. I wouldn't have guess it would smell good. Some cereal grains. Intensity is medium and the aroma is inviting. The taste is timid... this is light beer category. Light bitterness at the end. This is refreshing but it is a little bit disappointing. The aroma had promising notes, but if fails on the taste if you ask me. This has to be drink quickly. It doesn't get any good when it warms up. This one is missing some "punch" to be a true pilsner.

33 cl bottel poured into my de molen tastingglass

Clear gold pour with a fizzy white head.
Aroma is a typical pils. Some grass and hops with a light sweet note.
Flavor is dry and grassy with some bitterness, hay, slight malts, and a lightly sweet honey finish. Some bitterness lingers and leaves a crisp taste on the palate.
Easy drinking pilsener.
