Aroma is grainy/slightly sweet malts, fruit and slightly perfumed. The flavor is malts/pale malts, slightly grainy sweetness, fruit and a bitter Euro-style hop finish.

Golden, straw colored with think, white head. Pretty clear. Aromatic doughy scent. Hops undetectable in the aroma. Tastes a light, buttered biscuits. After taste is quite bitter and finish is sticky/oily. Better than expected from a mass producer, but nothing to write home about.

Taste: it has some bitter, sour almost salty notes. Dark gold in color and clear, medium lite body. A soapy foam of head with not much lace to the glass.

DATE TASTED: November 7, 2015 ... GLASSWARE: 22 oz. pilsner... OCCASION: catching up after a whirlwind two days in Bloomsburg... APPEARANCE: a mostly clear, highly effervescent, golden body--the strange haze that misted in the bottle has been dispelled at the pour; the white two-finger head simmers to a frothy, half-finger, bubbly ring... AROMA: amazingly powerful--detected well away from the table--and beefy, with some funky warehouse and yeasty dough that overpowers the soft hops... PALATE: initially fizzy and active, but the buttery end softens the contact and resolves into an oily exit; light to medium-bodied... the finish fades apologetically... TASTE: due to the rice, not much of a profile...what does exist is a grainy, malty bitterness that is more pronounced than the label suggests; buttery notes also soften the experience... more likable than anticipated... OVERALL: as lagers from the Soviet bloc go, this is agreeable though uncharacteristically soft --the often harsh bitterness from this style is absent, and in its place is a slightly floral, reasonably satisfying lager...consider me pleasantly surprised ...

Poured from the bottle into a pint glass at the World of Beer in Pooler, GA.
This is another green glass skunk smelling/tasting beer from Europe. The best part of this beer is its appearance. It is a pale euro lager color with a medium body.
