Straw yellow, white head, lots of little bubbles. Aroma was slightly skunky, and in a good way, I like some skunk to a europils.

A dallop of bittterness and skunky still going on. Minor hopping, but sturdy enough for the light malt base in a pils.

Handles itself well, this is a solid pils in every department except its appearance, really wasn't anything to distinguish it from say, a Keystone Light.

The beer is clear and golden, a white rather firm head that settles slowly leaviing some lacing.

Smelling of some white bread, slightly citric and green apples.

Bread, hard wheat bread, lemon peel and grass in a rather alkaloid bitterness.

Medium carbonation, rather small intense bubbles, freash and foamy, a dry finish.

A straight clean pilsener.

Poured out like almost any other pilsner, it's yellow, bubbly and clear looking. The head was white and fizzy, just leaves some white clumps on top of the beer. The smell is very grassy and a little skunked. The taste has the same earthy and fresh cut grassy flavor to it. The mouthfeel is light and pretty smooth. Overall not a fan of most pilsners this one falls into the same category.

A- pale straw yellow with a nice foamy head and nice retention. Rings of lace.

S- Skunk ruins it all Underneath are some nice fruity notes and some dark caramels undertones, but skunk overtakes it all.

T- Skunky, metallic, and while nice hops flavors it, it doesn't balance right for the bitterness of this beer.

M- Thin, medium and slight creamy

D- If you like skunky beer, this one is thin and watery and can probably be downed quickly.

A- Gold color, clear
S - Smell of hops... a clean crisp pilsner.
T - Excellent tasting...reminds me of the beers my grandfather used to drink in the early 1970's.
M - Thin, waterery, not syrupy at all.
D - Very drinkable, you can drink these all night and enjoy them without a hangover in the morning.

Overall: I love this beer...Similar to Beck's...clean, crisp, light hops, and refreshing. It's my go to beer for everyday refreshment.

Serving type: bottle

Served in a nice original CD-Pils glass, with a nice 3 finger thick snow white foam. Golden color, you could see its sparkly freshnes by the bubbles rising from the round bottom to the thiner top end of the glass. It has a nice beer bitter taste wich is very refreshing at first and leaves a nice bitter taste. Nice aromatic hop smell.
