OVERALL RATING:



Sight: Crystal clear maize body with a thinnish ultra-white head.

Smell: Crisp, earthy aroma, with a tinge of metallic.

Flavor: It has a nice, crap-German malt taste, with a pleasant note of apples and melon. Hops are greatly missed.

Feel: Incredible mouthfeel…very dynamic. The feel alone makes me want to drink a hundred of these.

Concluding Remark: For the record, this is not a Pilsner. The nice shopkeeper at Top Hops on Orchard Street was slightly baffled that I was looking for multiple Pilsners (especially when their shelves are filled with delicious foreign beers). I think in order to have me fill a six-pack of Pilsners, he categorized Gösser, Austria’s Budweiser, as a Pilsner. I knew just from smelling it, it was not one. It is the exotic EURO LAGER. But I went forth and reviewed it nonetheless.

For a Euro Lager, this is pretty decent. It has a kind of generic sweetish malt taste, but the mouthfeel is excellent. It would be the perfect six-pack to bring for a picnic, or some social event where you’re trying to please everyone. You won’t, you never will. Someone will give you sass about bring a euro macro lager, someone will give you you sass for not bringing Smirnoff Ice or a Riesling. Whatever. This won’t make you popular, but everyone will drink it.
