A decent beer for it's style but it hardly has any smell and not a whole lot of flavor either except the typical skunky taste, it got a bit metallic as it got warmer. It has a light feel thats easy to drink.

Decent at quenching thirst on a warm day.
Looks clear. Aroma clearly has more than barley, which is OK.
But as usual, the taste is less full, but smooth and balanced. The finish is pleasantly dry.
Overall, decent but unexciting.

Reviewed in MJ's 1999 edition, giving it 3 of 4 stars : notably soft and malty, with a full but delicate flavor."

From a bottle marked best by 24 June 2016. Pours an amber color with two fingers of white head. Skunky aroma. Light mouthfeel, tastes of citrus and a little bit of hops. Fine for what it is, an easy to drink lager. Better than many others in the style because there's nothing weird about this one (sweetness, adjuncts, aftertaste, etc.). I'm not a huge fan of the style, so take my rating with a grain of salt.

If you're expecting sweetness from its relatively-dark-for-a-pilsner color, you'd be mistaken. Tastes remarkably flat to me. Certainly catty and herbaceous but without that initial hit of sweetness from an Urquell. Body's a little sticky & heavy for me.

Certainly not my go-to.

OK, I get it, this looks weak, yellow and watery, sure, it kinda is. The skunky aroma hits what some look for in a Euro lager, so this is good.

Taste has some moderate noble hops, massive carbonation levels, metallic citrus notes of lemon.

Its a hot weather only beer for me, but does that pretty well when I want a no frills skunk lager.

On draft. Inch thick head that didn't dissipate quickly. Golden color. Smooth feel. Easy drinking.

Crystal clear golden body with white head that quickly disappears. Nothing exceptional to smell, smooth drinking with a mild, kind of nice skunkiness. Its not an exciting beer, but I'm not a huge fan of the style either.
