Cornfield (5504) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 21, 2014
Very nice pour (into a Pilsener glass, natch), a clear yellow body filled with rapidly rising Tiny Bubbles (for Don Ho) and topped with a sustained creamy head, it was. (The last two words were added to make it a sentence.) The aroma is light, some grain and biscuits (mayhaps crackers?) with a quiet grassiness. The flavor is stronger than the nose lead me to expect and has a modest bitterness added to the mix. Not a bad Summer drink... even though it’s raw, wet, and windy outside.

bhensonb (11252) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours translucent gold with a white head. Mildly noble aroma. Med body or so. Flavor is hoppy, spicy, but not really bitter. Well, a little bitter. It certainly has enough hop to keep the breadiness down. Could use stronger flavors, but it’s decent.

Bottle. Clear golden yellow color, almost flat. Aroma of soapy citrus. Taste is lemony and plain.

Draft. Overload of diacetyl, just a horrible, horbile example of the style, just pure butter.

superspak (2690) - Michigan, USA - OCT 5, 2014
12 ounce bottle into lager glass, best before 10/31/2014. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy bright gold color, with a 1 finger dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon zest, orange peel, cracker, bread, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt and citrus/earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon zest, orange peel, cracker, bread, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Fair amount of earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon zest, orange peel, cracker, bread, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Nice complexity and solid robustness of pale malt and citrus/earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very clean in lager flavors and does not feel watery. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with no warming present after the finish as expected of 4.8%. Overall this is a nice and pleasant German pilsener. All around good balance and solid robustness of pale malt and citrus/earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

JCW (1275) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 3, 2014
This is a well made pils, a style that isn’t popular on RB, but should be. Mine pours a golden color, a bit darker and slightly cloudy(neither classical for the style) with a bubbly white head. Moderately sweet flavor with a semi dry moderately bitter finish(all classic for the style). Very good pils.

drowland (6082) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - SEP 15, 2014
9/15/14. 12oz bottle from Warehouse. I took the first few swigs from the bottle for the summer pilsner experience but poured most into a teku. Almost clear golden pour, some orange hues, under a surprisingly big khaki head that sticks around and laces just fine. Relatively plain aroma, some doughiness, straw, a bit of earthy, floral, and sweaty hop character. Plain but seemingly inoffensive flavor - doughy, a touch of a chalky aspect, straw, grass, floral hops, a bit of bitterness and lingering light stone fruits. Goes down surprisingly smooth. Could be worse.

obguthr (3917) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Grassy noble hop aroma, but with an additional grapefruit and starfruit note. Hazy amber, thick head, good lace. Grass, lemon zest, dandelion, lemongrass. Light body. Quite nicely crafted as a summer pilsner. It definitely has a brighter and sharper hop note than other pilsners, well suited for the hot summer months.
