Holy guacamole. I used to love this beer, especially in the porcelain-stopped bottles that, while, green, were usually fresh back in the day. Nicest overtly-bitter beer I have ever had. Now nearly impossible to find around here, and I'm not certain that I would trust the freshness even if I found it. Too bad.

From notes taken 05/14/17:

Dull cuprescent honey amber, light peachy pink in indirect light, metallic and very clear, capped with light, fluffy, uniform, fine-bubbled lemon-white to beige head of lower-moderate retention. Smells a little skunky, green bottle and all, but sweet graininess is the main aroma. Palate is still sweet grains but also some biscuity as well as harsh grains, more skunk, and floral and metallic to almost chemically hops. Lighter medium body, watery, refreshing, medium level of tingly carbonation that smoothens to silk by the finish.

Pours a clear gold color with lots of visible carbonation and a finger of bubbly white head.

Has a typical euro lager smell, a bit funky with a bready and watery smell.

Flavor is more of that European pilsner coming out with just a hint of that skunk found in a lot of green bottle beers. The taste is just so middle of the road yet just a bit above the "other guys".

Mouth is really light with an easy finish.

Overalll this beer is really not a bad buy if you are looking for a lager/pilsner beer from Europe. Nothing really stands out on this one but it still does have a nice flavor to it. Plus the character of those big green bottles with a porcelain stopper in the wire cage gets coolness bonus points.
