I enjoyed this pils, better than I expected. Nice hop flavor, and really light. For a cheap pils that I bought at an autobahn gas station, I enjoyed this one very much. Nice looking lacing with a decent stream of bubbles and smells good. Nice aftertaste too, with very little metallic flavor for being in a can. Clean pils. I'd like to try this one real cold on-tap someday.

Half-litre can: BBD 11 Aug 2014, poured at home into my rarely used 'Paderborner Goldpilsner' vase shaped glass on 27 Sep 2013.

Typical German Pilsner look, golden, bright, clear and clean: on top a snow white head of bubbles.

The nose is grain and hay, with bread notes.

The taste was refreshing and crisp in nature, dry hops leading the flavour stakes. The semi-sweet malt content is just about noticeable, just before the hops re-assert themselves in a bitter finish.

I enjoyed it.

Dominikaner Pils pours as a great specimen of what a pils should be: Lots of sticky white foam, and a golden clear body.

Aromas are on par too, with herbal lemon drop to freshly mown hay.

In the taste I'm not getting total cleanliness. There is a grainy sweet huskiness, but finishes with an herbal/stony taste.

This is pretty dry and leaves my mouth needing more to quench my thirst. Not too bad for a session beer. This is definitely on par.

500ml can from Woolworth. MHB: 09.03.12.

It pours a clear yellowish gold, hinting more towards yellow. It has a frothy white head that kind of sits on top of the beer, not receding fully.

The smell is sweet and alcoholic, with an almost soda-like presence and some metal. It smells like it is form Mexico, minus the corn.

The taste is more promising, but it definitely is cheap and rough-edged. It has a noticeable alcohol flavor despite the abv, it is a very messy pils. There is a bit of a hop note but it is over-ridden by the mundane malt bill.

It is not that great.

Appearance: Poured from the can into a large mug. The beer is a great pure gold color with a nice big pure white head that sticks around a while.

Smell: Very lemony, though some light hops can be detected as well. Hay. A prototypical pils aroma.

Taste: Very crisp on first sip with hints of citrus. Surprising bready maltiness in the middle there, but a nice dry hoppiness to finish things up. Nice and clean.

Overall: A well balanced session beer, and a big surprise form a can found in a small town in Bulgaria. I can see myslef buying this a lot in the summer if it's still around here....

Sampled in the main train station in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. 0.5 L can.

This pils poured a clear, very light yellow color with white foam that persisted a bit. The smell was malty with some bread and a bit of hops. The taste was lightly malty with some bread and some bitter hops with a touch of floral hops. There was a faint sweetness. The mouthfeel was smooth and overall dry with medium-light body and strong carbonation. The hoppiness lingered on the palate. This was a light, refreshing, easy to drink pils.
