look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

appearance:
a deep yellow. slightly hazey. which id didnt expect from such a generic brand.
there was a hint of head, and i even poured slightly faster to see what i could do
for a head. didnt help. this beer has very little head. if thats ur thing ..right on..
i prefer to have at least a bit. just adds to the experience of a beer.
deceivingly carbornated. looks to be not so much..but past the haze..its in there.

smell:
more grains than anything. reminds me of an american adjunct. with a bit less bite
and a slight cabbagey smell i cant quite figure out. not offensive..just reminds me a bit of some more domestic type beers ive had..major grassy notes also.

taste:
lagery. smooth. not so sharp. but still crisp. ..yeah i suppose fresh and crisp are good descriptives. has a malty finish. nothing strong..but nothing about this beer is strong
probably best served somewhat warm. in a plastic cup, at a premier league match.
seems like pretty basic beer. but it has some qualities that are endearing.
its very good for drinking alot of. i enjoy it along with the usuals.
its a bit of stretch to be considering this beer a pilsner.
as the classification says.
its no where near dry on the finish.
and fails in the comparison to even cheaper pilsners.
but im not knocking it here..
its got a purpose.
but its hardly pilsner.

mouthfeel:
goes down like a draft. (on tap..not this bottles "draught" nonsense)..
nice level carb. good range of flavour. if anything id say they should make
a slightly higher abv version. and id be a frequent flier..

overall:
pretty much .very good. not the best. but definatly worth a sip. i regular this beer when i plan on watching some soccer highlights. sunday afternoon waxing the car. really just a slightly better than average "drinkers beer"..perfect for hooligans and malcontents.perfect for a beer to drink when you dont want the bloaty feeling of foamy numbers.crisp and clean. drink some when ur on the go. makes a good hiking/ camping brew.
(interestingly enough ..its stated on the can that its "imported premium beer".)
tastes pretty similar to some more basic canadian offerings ive had the mild pleasure of sampling over the years)..seems kind of odd..i know they talked about brewing it in canada here..like moosehead green. but with a cleaner finish. and less malt.

to me this is a better than average light beer, widely available and far superior to most of the other beers of the same color and light flavor profile. the pour is tall and yellow golden in color, with a few inches of slowly fading white foam. the nose is pilsener malts, could be german or czech, with that grassy fresh cut hay vibe, and some non distinct yeast strain and just enough hops to still be called a beer. the taste is identical, seemingly with a touch of white wheat malt too, but the pils malt shines here. its dumbed down a little from the genuine article, but it fills a large void in the beer world of a full flavored beer that is golden in color and easy drinking. its much better on tap than in the bottle, and to me is a worthy all day beer when you are trying to not fill up or get too heavily buzzed. light in feel, but not watery at all. there is still some body present. the finish is quick and this is all up not a bad beer for what it is. less useful in a food context, kind of bland to enhance anything, and not exactly light enough to completely stay out of the way...

A. Beer has a clear golden color, has no head to speak of. Has some lacing.
S. Nose is crisp and light, very pilsnery.
T. Taste is light and crispy with some light fruity estery notes but some off plasticy.
M. well carbonated crisp aftertaste.
O. Relatively good, feels like a European dos equis. On tap at Abbey inn, Denton Tx 12/21/12.
