look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Served in a pint.

Appearance: gold, thin head. Maybe 1/8" off the body.

Smell: light barley, smelled sweet good.

Taste: creamy to the point that it resembles a marzen. Tasty and definitely an easy drink.

Mouth: medium carbonation and well worth consuming.

Overall: An everyday beer that you shouldn't runaway from. A notch sweet but creamy well worth your time drinking. Salud!

500ml bottle.Dimpled mug.Bright golden.White,small bubbled, froth.Quickly dissipated head.Floral & slightly sweet aromasClean bitterness.Grainy palate. ABV is felt.Medium body,medium carbonation.Intense & flavorful mouthfeel sensation, mineral thick backbone -as displayed on the label: pure mountain water- An Euro lager above the medium average -no adjuncts indeed-.So... a good reference to the style.

Drank on tap at Hilton in Gdansk, Poland

A - Light, clear yellow/gold in color, minimal head, very slight lacing on glass.

S - Slight citrus, with more biscuity malt scent.

T - Similar to the smell, with hints of apple, not a lot going on here, tastes are very subtle.

M - Mild bodied and mild carbonation.

O - Feel like I'm drinking an upscale Bud, crisp finish would be very refreshing on a hot day.

Poured from a 500ml bottle.

L - Light thin head that dissapears quickly. A very thin and clear gold to orange colour.

S - very light on the smell. Sweet malts and some grains. Nothing special at all.

T - initial sweet malts with a more bready after taste.

M - Light body, initial burst of carbonation that settles down in the mouth pretty quickly
