I am editing my review. Purchased at a grocery store for 1 euro in Salzburg, so provided this doesn't poison me there is value for the money. Drinking out of a can so no opinion on color or head. Expiry date that says good for another 10 months so that is good. I did spend a euro. The smell is faintly yeasty and grassy but nothing overwhelming. The taste was underwhelming. Faint hoppiness, but overall it seems to taste like a mass produced beer like....dare I say. Nothing offensive about this one. If it was hot out and this was cold it be nice. I was disappointed.

A. A nice clear gold color, very limited head with no lacing. Bubbly, big bubbles.

S. Strong malt and some cider.

T. It has a flavorful malty taste. There's a bit of an apple taste. Some sweet grape taste underneath.

M. Tingly and a bit carbonated.

O. Has a good deal of flavor. A bit too malty but a very solid lager.

The first time this has come to Casper.

A bright golden colour with a good head of foam, good lacing.

Strongly malty in the smell with a side order of some hop crispness and grain.

Malty taste though not sweet, grain and corn, crisp use of the hops, this is a good drinking brew. The sixer I bought says best by 07.01.13, I'm guessing that means the world "standard" of Jan 7th but if it's really July 1, I don't know how I'd feel if I drank one 9 months from now. ;^)

Overall, an enjoyable brew that I'm sure has not suffered the curse of the green bottle. I still prefer the new packaged Pilsner Urquell though.
