500ml Can

Appearance – Clear light yellow colour with an above average size fizzy white coloured head. There is a high amount of carbonation showing and there is some fair lacing. The head lasted for around 5 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Grains, bread, corn, malts, floral hops

Taste & Mouth - The beer has a below average amount of carbonation. I can taste bread mixed with light floral hops and some cooked corn. As well I can taste a bit of a hay/straw/herbal flavour going on. It ends with a grainy and herbal aftertaste.

Overall – It's a very light tasting beer.. not a whole lot of flavour going on. It differs from the other euro-beers in the sense that it has some light herbal notes, but it's still just an average beer. Not something I'd buy again.

Tasted this before I was on B.A.
Bought a 500ml can to taste again and review.
Poured into my oversized "Le Naufrageur" mug.
A- Canary-yellow like one of those tropical soft drinks (Bananacola and such) Nice, frothy, white-as-white-can-be head stays for a while and leaves nice clumpy lacing. Some bubbles.
S- Grain. An orange cocktail from concentrate and a lemony pineapple are two smells that disappeared with the head. You can then notice more of a hop character.
T-Grain. Light Hops... Maybe I'm just craving hops but the hops here really taste good. Tastes like the hops found in lots of I.P.A only toned way down. Light sweet malt.
M- Thin but suits the rest of the beer well. Lacks a bit of carbonation.
D- High.
Not a great beer. I'd still recommend it to any macro drinker.
It doesn't have the strong alcohol malt-liquor-like taste I remember it having.

Can: Poured a bright golden color lager with a nice pure white bubbly head with minimum retention. Aroma of grainy malt with some light skunky notes and maybe even buttery malt notes. Taste is also dominated by skunky notes with some grainy malt. Body is about average with some average carbonation. Definitely something I won’t seek out again.

This is an EPL through and through. Don't be persuaded by the pilsener title.

500ml can.

It pours a light golden hue.

It is pretty grainy and slightly sour. I had it after a Holsen which is a real grain bomb. Neither beer is that great but this one seemed inferior. And compared to Holsten Permium that isn't saying much.

I you like stella artois or heineken or something like that in a can then go or it, but it isn't too good.
