Was out of a bottle at a friends house in Kiel
Pours a nice two finger white creamy head that lingered and left a nice lacing in the glass
It has a nice amber golden color
its aroma is very pleasant with a nice grain malt overtone with notes of fruits a bit hoppy but not overbearing
Has a nice lager taste and a pleasant mouth
Surprisingly good for a beer type I normally do not prefer

Pours to a creamy white head and moderate lace. Color is light golden. Aroma is a bit skunky at first but resolves to the right decocted grain character and spicy Czech hops. Flavor is just OK. Mouthfeel is nice. Solid citizen.

From Carrefour. In Ikea's pilsner glass. After dinner.Nothing special here. A bit better than average pilsner. Low on foam and carbonation but a bit better than usual aroma.

14 Oct 2016. In Teku glass. After dinner. New label. A bit better than a standard macro lager, with a bit more of taste and a more softer and pleasant bitterness

Poured from an 11 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the World of Beer in Pooler, GA. This beer has a slight hint of the evil green bottle skunk monster, not terrible but noticeable. The color is a bright amber with a mediun sized white head. You can taste the hops and some of the malt but a wee-bit of the skunkiness. Overall, a good Czech Pilsener.

This is decent pilsner but I can't justify buying it again for how much I paid for it at BevMo. It reminds me a ton of a German Lager, except this has a much more hoppy taste to it. It has less of a skunk smell to the beer compared to a lager, but it's just not my cup of tea.

12oz bottle poured into a slender lager glass.

A: Brassy-colored and brilliantly clear. Rocky white head does not budge. Thick and clumpy lacing. It looks great in the glass.

S: Pungent herbal and grassy hops. Skunky. Toasty grain and some bready malt sweetness.

T: Sharp, herbal hop bitterness. Grassy and earthy. Steely. Skunked.Toasty grain rides up to balance. Bready malt sweetness. The lightstruck skunky quality is quite pervasive and hard to ignore, overtaking the herbal hops on the finish too.

M: Light bodied. Firm and round malt character and spritzy carbonation.

O: This could be a halfway decent beer, but I'll never know since it's lightstruck as hell.

Pours a clear light golden , big foamy head , creamy lace which exhibits good retention.
Initially, there is some grassiness in the nose , followed by overall, a sweet malt aroma.
Taste wise this is a mostly sweet beer, the toasted malts predominating along with some light fruitiness. There are mild hops which add some bitterness and are felt in the finish.
The feel is its best attribute; light, smooth and creamy. Low carbonation, but it doesn't bother me. Very drinkable and easy to put away quickly.
A pleasant and solid session pilsner.
