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.

Strong honey nose with hints of fruit. Flavor is that of a typical pilsner with a bit of that honey. Overall, mild and smooth with little hop presence.

I tried this at Quencher's Saloon in Chicago. $5 for a 330ml green bottle poured into a pint glass. There is some kind of code stamped on the back label but can't make heads or tails out of it, so I don't know if this is a freshness date or what. What does 41601908 mean???

The beer poured a crystal clear straw gold color with a ½-finger of white head that dissipated in about 30 seconds and left no lacing whatsoever.

I was afraid of skunkiness with the green bottle and all but thankfully there was none of that at all, but it didn't have a good pilsener smell either. It actually had a sweet bubblegum and fruit aroma along with some grainy malt, but none of the noble hops usually associated with German pilseners.

It didn't taste like bubblegum but was still on the sweet side with a cereal grain flavor. Kind of a bland beer but not offensive. Lacks depth and really lacks any kind of hop bitterness that you usually get with a pilsener.

Between light and medium bodied with mild carbonation. I would have liked it better if it had more spritz.

Easy to drink at just 4.2%abv. but not really a good example of a German pilsener.

Poured into a glass from an undated green bottle, consumed January 31st, 2016.

Beer is proper clear light yellow with fizzy white head.

Smell : skunked.

Flavor : slightly grainy, chalky and skunked.

Mouthfeel: correct for style.

Overall - unremarkable pilsener that was lightstruck thanks to a green bottle and who knows how old it was? I would say to avoid this one because of these two points.

From a bottle. Pours a light golden? (hard to tell with low light) color with a thin head. Smells mostly of malt. Light mouthfeel with rich malt taste. Nice, first beer I've had from Lebanon

Bottle pour at a Lebanese restaurant. Expected the typical German skunk, got none of it. This was surprisingly good, and probably amongst the best of the genre that I've had.
