From bottle: pours a clear yellow golden color with white colored head. Cereal grain, some light sweetness on the nose; follows onto the palate. Light bodied. Finishes with grain and a light sweetness, but not too much. Decent lager.

Aroma-faint barley and hops. Maybe beer is too cold, but aromas are faint.
Look-Dark black color, medium white head. Lasting with large bubbles.
Taste us heavy toasted barley. Rye/ pumpernickel. Smooth sipping with a lot of flavor. Late sourness that is not unpleasant.
Mouthfeel- low carbonation. Thin smooth feel. Would be great with a hearty beef stew with a lot of carrots, potatoes, dill and rosemary. This beer always satisfies....na zdorovie.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.25

Presentation: 330 ml bottle with a best before date of April 2017 poured into a pint glass.

Look: Golden yellow with a white 2.5 finger head that rapidly vanishes into a soapy residue that doesn't quite cover the top of the glass.

Smell: Corn, malt, and a little funk.

Taste: Corn and malt. Also somewhat bitter at times but without any hop flavor.

Feel: Has the consistency of water and is heavily carbonated.

Overall: Not a good beer by any stretch of the imagination.

Familiar straw yellow in color. Lots of clarity, big 1.25" white head. Retention sub par. Aroma was industrious moreso than agrarian.

Taste was light, heavy carbonation, light malt body, toasted malt, 2 row, at its most "cooked" (i.e. no roasting). Bitterness higher than average. Format is somewhat annoying, expensive for what it is. Lacks familiar Euro skunk lager issues.

Pours a nice translucent golden color with about two fingers of head, decent retention.
Smells sweet, like hay, reminiscent of many pilsners.
Lemon zest, mild hop bite, and then a nice pilsner like light malty finish, crisp finish at that.
Mouthfeel is light and thin, quite refreshing considering its summertime.
Overall, a decent euro pale lager, and one I'd search out again if given the chance.
