Poured from a 16 oz can into a Zywiec tulip

L: Crystal clear light golden pour. Big foamy white head... lasts forever and leaves great lacing.

S: Crackery grains, lemon, and spice.

T.F: Just like it smells. Grains and a bit of light malty sweetness. Lemon/rind, peppercorns, and herbal notes. Some nice hop bitterness... light bodied. Crisp and clean. A mix of lemongrass and spice to finish.

O: A very well executed Pilsner. Super easy drinking... clean and delicious. Should be rated higher for the style.

OK so I've had more than a couple of these and I've formed an opinion. Picked this up in a six pack of 12 ounce cans which has become sort of a rarity circa 2018. Pours a little hazy, definitely moreso than most beers of this style but not a dirty beer at all. 1 finger of foam, rapid dissipation. The nose is nice, pretty much representative of the style. Maybe a little fruity, but clean clean clean. Very easy beer to drink at 5% abv, a little watery but I'm getting some white grape on the back palate. As easy to drink as Spaten Pils Lager, but greater complexity and it gives you more to both taste and think about than something you may pick up in a supermarket.

Very very soft beer and something anyone could drink all day long. Worth a shot but not something to go out of one's way for.

Can from brewery

pours a lightly hazy straw gold with small white head. Aromas and flavor are crackers, toast, lemon, grains. Really a crisp clean beer that is made for the outdoors on a hot summer day. Doesn't weigh you down at all.

A: The beer is slightly hazy yellow in color and has a moderate to high amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that died down, leaving lots of lacing down the sides of the glass and a short head covering the surface.
S: Light to moderate aromas of white grapes and herbal are present in the nose along with hints of herbs.
T: The taste follows the smell, except that the flavors of herbs are a bit stronger.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a bit clean on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I found this pilsner to be very hop forward.

This one pours a brilliantly clear light straw yellow, with a small head and lots of lacing.

This smells lightly grassy and floral, with crackery malt, sulfur and fruity yeast.

This is a little too sulfury, but it still tastes nice. The hop character is spot on, with fresh cut grass and flowers, and a crisp biscuity malt backbone.

This is super crisp, clean, and awesomely drinkable, with a good level of carbonation.

This has some slight flaws, but it's overall very good anyway.
