Favorite beer for the summer. Easy to pick up and drink. goes very well with grilled food on a hot day. the hint of apple like sweetness that you feel after finishing a bottle makes you want to grab another one.

Normally I stick with American brands but this I decided to try at the recommendation of my father who is a beer expert. Delicious! The best foreign beer I've ever tried. Beautiful color and crisp, hoppy taste.

A nice crisp,refreshing pilsner. Perfect gold color and very refreshing without a lingering taste. Perfect beer to pound down all day

A- Crystal clear pour from the can which feels somewhat foreign in the modern age of beer. A tiny white layer forms atop the beer and it quickly dies out. Thousands of bubbles rapidly rise to the top and lacing is nonexistent.

S- Just smells oddly sweet like rock candy, cane sugar and wet sweet base grains. Besides that there are just some estery pale fruits like apple or similar.

T- Follows up on the aroma with the dominant characteristic of the beer being the sweets and grainy flavor. Bread, cracker, cane sugar, corn and mashed barley lead into apple and a whisper of spicy hops.

MF- Uber light bodied with just a fizzy and slightly foamy texture. Very high level of bubbles and a hint of bitterness.

Sweetness with just a hint of yeast flavor and hops. Certainly nothing special lacking a big flavor to get into but at least not offensive or totally flavorless.

A - Light gold to medium gold color with thin soapy lacing that dissipates quickly, light carbonation.

S - Earthy, grainy, light citrus zest.

T - Grainy throughout with light honey malt, some citrus with a little earthiness, and a balanced finish.

M - Medium body with prickly carbonation that gives way to a creamy finish.

O - Been a long time since I've had this beer. Nothing special but it certainly hits the spot when you're thirsty.
