Tap @ Stadthotel Weinsberg, Stuttgart, 14/11/13. Pours a clear gold with a large and thick, white head. Aroma is grain with light grass. Taste is strong with pale malts, graininess being very strong. Decent amount of grass on the finish. Good carbonation, fairly medium in the mouth. Good.

Aroma is grains and German hops. The flavor is grains, light citrus, a hint of spices and a tangy/dry finish.

(on tap) Bright golden color, persistent white head, clear and shiny. Looks quite appealing - even though it is so pale one could think it would be on the thin side (which is not the case). The aroma is dominated by the hops, mainly of the grassy kind. Yummy! Some white bread is there as well, but very much in the background. The aroma is not very intense, but absolutely appropriate for a Pilsener. After a while the hop aroma builds up on the palate and stays there after the last drop is swallowed. This is a must for a fine pilsener, in my opinion. This one is definitely spot-on. The bitterness is less stronger than I would expect from a Pilsener - but then again this is a South German example, so that’s ok. Medium carbonation, smooth mouthfeel, pleasant to drink. I’d love to have it again.

Draught at BBF13. Clear yellow colour. Small white head. The flavour is watery, slightly metallic. CO2 flavour. Rather disappointing.

Malty aroma, some hops. Sweet malt flavors, bitter finish. Simple little German pils.

Bamsen78 (4787) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 4, 2013
Draught @ BBF13. Pours pale golden with small white head. Clear aroma of yeast and hops. Bitter, hoppy flavour with notes of malt and a paperlike finish. Nice and refreshing, certainly above the standard for the type in Germany.

yrstruly (333) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 22, 2013
Clear light golden colour with low head and medium body. Nose of hops. Taste of fresh fizzy hops, grass, roses, coriander and hay. Very easy and nice to drink and the finish is just so fresh and nice. Really good. Pours clear gold, with a small white head. Aroma is of German hops, a bit floral with hay. Taste is fairly dry, with a nice hop finish. Nice and clean with balance.

UPDATED: OCT 11, 2013 A nice Pilsner which comes crispy with some hay and grass in the aroma. Not too bitter in the end makes a few points extra. Short and sharp hoppy-crispy finish. Could have been an english bitter like cocker hoop. Fine. Really fine.
