Pours a clear golden color, smell was rice,corn,grassy lemon. Taste followed nose but with a stale musty after taste. Mouth feel was crisp with high carbonation. Had this one at a new fusion/asian restaurant ,not one to seek out.

Very similar to other light beers but its redeeming quality being sweet aftertaste and decent mouthfeel. I might pick this if a bar doesn't have anything interesting or i just want something easy to drink.

Bottle served into pilsner glass. A 1" sudsy white head falls slowly with some mild lacing. Color is clear light gold with carbonation slowly streaming upward. Aroma malty grain, grassy hops and a bit of citrus. Mouthfeel is light and a lingering, slightly astringent finish. Flavor of light toasted bread, biscuit, with mild grassy hops. Overall it a decent lager, but nothing outstanding.

Bottle beer - drunk from standard pint glass (slightly biased opinion being I drank alot of this in the Navy as a young man - it tasted better now than then)

3.75 look - Super clear and golden very little head that dissapated quickly. Love the color and clarity, but head gone real fast no lacing.
3.5 smell - Yeasty, bready, corn and sweet.
3.5 taste - Yeast, bread, corn , slightly bitter finish. taste really lingers for a while. reminds me of a slightly milder version of Baltika 7
3.0 mouthfeel - dry crisp lots of carbonation. slightly warm finish.

Oddly been liking this style of pilsners like this and Baltiki 7 lately (Taj Mahal if my memory is right) i have had a hard run of high alcohol hoppy beers lately maybe that is just it.

Honestly I wasn't expecting much from this beer. Got a six pack from a co-worker. I have to say I was little surprised. It's certainly not the best beer I've had but this is a perfectly acceptable beer and a good representation of the style. It's a light, crisp beer that's easy to drink.

Pours golden. Foamy, short, white head that fades slowly.

Smells bready malt, grainy, hint skunky and light grassy.

Tastes great sweetness, malty, raisin and light grassy. Finish is Semi dry with grassy linger. Light body and fizzy medium carbonation.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Decanted from an 11.2 oz bottle into a conical pint glass; no production data.
A: Pours a perfectly clear, pale golden color with robust carbonation, leading to an at least one inch head, but little head retention and no lacing.
S: Aroma mostly cracked grain than baked bread, with a little herbal/grassy.
T: Palate follows nose, with the grain end of flavor predominating. Lightly bitter with a little bitter aftertaste.
M: Light bodied with solid carbonation. Fairly refreshing.
O: This was a reasonable example of the Pilsener style. If we are comparing this to other Pilseners, it's actually a pretty well made one. I also appreciate that it is placed in brown bottles, as, despite being imported from the other side of the world, it drinks fresh and unskunked.
