Pour this PITT beer in a normal pilsener glass. No nice thick foam and a lot of sparklings. It is sad that the foam dies in a couple of seconds...

The smell is very far away of smelling a good pilsener. Just a very light smell of bitterness that's all.

The taste is not that bad. Good to drink. The pilsener tastes goes fast away and it is not keeping up on your palate for a long time. For the taste I have no complains. Fresh and very good cold served, it is quite a good beer.

This beer is from a supermarket here in the Netherlands, a basic and cheap beer. But for me, it is a quite okay beer.

A: Very light pilsner look. No head and barely any carbonation rising to the top.

S: Sweet malt, and faintly of cloves.

T: Fairly flavorless. Bitterness resides briefly in the aftertaste. Totally inoffensive. Better than american water beers. Weak but not bad.

M: Carbonation is felt going down. Smooth and fairly light.

O: It's europes equivalent of the american water beer, and clearly much better. Decent taste, very light, easy to drink all night.

Supermarket beer, the cheap stuff, meant for when you're thirsty.
Corn smell, watery mouthfeel. Taste malt, only a little grassy hops.
Overall this is exactly the quality you might expect for the price (0.5 euro for a pint). Really not worth trying if you have other options.

I got this one yesterday at Jumbo, a dutch cheap supermarket. The label is as on the photo here, only alcohol is 5.0 now and it lacks the white text under the inhoud. Very cheap, it cost me 20 cents. Usually I don't judge a beer from the bottle, but this one has a really bad appearance. Just a golden cap with nothing written on it and the labels, both front and back look like someone was palying with Microsoft Paint, came up with that, printed it and then glued in on the bottle. The beer itself doesn't look that nice either, yes nice colour but the one finger head was pathetic, with huge bubbles which once popped the head disappeared.
Some aroma of malts and a smell like a wet dog, Jesus..!
Taste is bitter, but you have to try hard to distinguish it under a very strong metallic flavour. Mouthfeel is ok I guess, except for the heavy carbonation.
Overall, worst beer I've ever tasted.
