500 m.L swing top bottle

A burnt golden color, very slight haze, medium sized, pure white foam top. Holds tight.

A very sweet, bready malty aroma. Honey soaked, frest baked bread, green veggies, sour, earthy German lager yeast funk and spice racK herbal hops.

Still, a very sweet, bready malt dominated flavor. Sour Dough bread, heavy on the sweetness. Big sour notes from the grains and pils yeast. Rather funky really but spot on to style.

Very clean, light bodied, not zippy or crisp, but very smooth, easy on the palate. I'm used to crispy pilsner with a dry bite, this one comes off a bit too relaxed and flat. Clean and light body regardless.

Heavy bready malt and sour flavor's dominate ...seems pretty authentic and old world, but remains pretty strange in most aspects.

A 500ml bottle with a BB of May 2017. Acquired a little while back from Aldi. Described on the label as an unfiltered pilsner.

A: Poured into a pint mug. Bottle conditioned. A hazy golden-amber with fine sediment and plentiful carbonation. Produces a decent head of creamy white foam that lasts for a few minutes before subsiding to a patchy surface layer. The haze gives the beer an amazing translucent quality.

S: Aroma of grainy malt with hints of biscuits, stewed hops, mild husks, earthy yeast and a touch of DMS. Faint harshness in the background. OK.

T: Tastes of light, grainy malt with a crisp, dry finish. Notes of husks, stewed hops, mild biscuits, earthy yeast, a twinge of overdone veg and a harsh twang in the background. A subdued bitterness upon swallowing.

M: Mouthfeel is smooth, tingly and dry, with spritzy carbonation. Decent body. Aftertaste of stewed leaves, earthy yeast and husky grain.

O: Drinkable but not outstanding. Looks great, while the aroma and flavour are rather bland - grain and vague stewed hops. Body is alright. Lacks the distinctive character that would mark a better pilsner. OK but no need to seek it out.

Light amber with a thick frothy head. Some haziness.
Grain, yeast and biscuit malt aroma.
Some sweetness in the flavour derived from notes of honey.
Reasonably well carbonated but quite light in body.

Swingtop bottle. Pours a hazy golden color. Smells very sweet. Has an adjunct aroma, too. Flavor is also of a very sweet, malty lager. Flavor has a very light hoppiness. Displays more body than many pilsners. I really was not into how sweet this was. The opposite of dry.

Poured from a 16.9 oz pop top bottle to a Weizen glass. L: poured a full 2 finger head (bad pour) fades to a nice ring with ok lacing. Light Amber, semi cloudy. Limited to no bubbles. S: Faint. Dark malt aroma (funny) that fades to a honey toast. T: grassy hop, slight bitter. Honey sweetness shows up as it warms. F: sharp and dry. Not super crisp or fizzy. O: it's a decent beer worth drinking slow.

Pours into a pilsner a dull hazed light to medium golden with a nice fluffy white head atop that left a moderate amount of lace behind.Toasted grain and a mineral quality in the nose.mild sweet bread dough as well.Bready and lightly sweet upfront on the palate with a light drying effect and that mineral quality in the finish.It's a basic lager beer but Iam guessing food friendly.

This review is from notes obtained while camping. I poured the beer into a clear plastic cup from a 16.9 ounce flip top bottle. The head was rather short, which I attribute to the cup. The beer is a golden amber color with low carbonation and slight haze.

The aroma of this beer is excellent, and really puts the Euro malts and noble hops on display. The flavor-aroma is complex, with notes of bread, berries, ginger cookies, and apricot/peach.

This beer is a delight- another great central European offering made available by Butte's famous grocery store- The Hennessey. Very cheap at only 3-something for the bottle, which will be reused for home brew.

Poured from a 1 pint 0.9 ounce flip-top bottle into a Shaker pint glass, there is no "best by" date that I could find.

APPEARANCE: pours a cloudy, straw color with one-finger, off-white head that slowly dissipated until just a thin, unbroken layer of bubbles remained, medium carbonation, there is moderate lacing on the glass.

SMELL: sweet malt up front with a little skunk and some bread, there is a lemon citrus and grassy note as well.

TASTE: the taste follows the nose, this is a malt forward beer and starts off sweet, there is the taste of bread and lemon grass, it finishes with a mild, skunky hop profile.

PALATE: light body and medium carbonation, somewhat creamy.

OVERALL: this is a good beer style to have when your palate is tired of hoppy IPA's, an imported beer for only $3.99 is a good value too, I would recommend this to anyone who likes beer and would buy this again.
