I believe, if I am not mistaken, that this beer came to me courtesy of my local, in-person trader @tone77 & yet I do not see a review from him. Hmm. Would he have given me his only bottle? Or did I procure this elsewhere? The mysteries of The Bottle Backlog at Chez Woody swirl around.

From the bottle: "Extra Quality".

I Pop!ped the cap with no real expectations of quality. As such, I still conducted a slow, gentle pour into the awaiting glass & then performed an in-glass swirl to raise two-plus fingers of dense, foamy, bone-white head with decent retention. Color was Golden-Amber (SRM = > 5, < 7) with NE-quality clarity, prompting a visit from The Gelt Gang of Mammon, Midas & Croesus. Nose smelled more like a Euro Lager than a German Plisner, kind of sweetish, but lacking in any real character. Mouthfeel was thin & watery. The taste was honey-like, but that was about it. There was nothing to distinguish it from any other cheaply made Lager-style beer. It was really lacking in taste, but at least it did not taste bad. Finish was semi-dry, but so what? This is a beer made for a hot, humid day in the outdoors when anything cold and wet will be refreshing. Otherwise, it is a big nothing. YMMV.

Really nice and light. Crisp and refreshing, could throw a few of these back on a hot day for sure.

I purchased a bottle of Almaza Pilsner Beer for $1.59 USD in Pasadena/CA/USA.

Look: Almaza Pilsner Beer had a light layer of foam with medium sized bubbles.
Smell: Almaza Pilsner Beer had an ordinary aroma of fermented grains.
Taste: Almaza Pilsner Beer had a very mellow flavour of grains mixed with vague hints of sweetness.
Feel: Almaza Pilsner Beer had good carbonation.
Overall: Almaza Pilsner Beer is a beer for people who enjoy a beer with light alcohol content. Almaza Pilsner Beer could be considered as an alternative to soda.
