fishonmyplane (407) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - JUL 17, 2012
I’m a bit alarmed to see this as a retired beer... with no new ratings in over a year. I just bought mine a week ago at the CT Beverage Mart in Newington, CT. Anyway, I think this beer’s low rating is deserved. It is overly sweet, with very little of the hop bitterness that I expect from a pils. Tastes a bit skunky, like an old Heineken or Beck’s that was left out in the sun. Bleh.

Bottled@Kahdet Kasvot, Tampere. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma and flavour are both hayish, grassy, bready malts as well as some slight grainy and rubbery notes.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAY 12, 2011
Bottle: Pours a clear gold color with a white head. The nose is lightly fruity with some husk and pale malt notes. Clean light flavor with a touch of grain and apple. Not bad, needs a little more hop bitterness.

Tap at company gathering in Gdansk. Light yellow colour, wiyh a thin white head. The aroma is sweetish, with notes of malt, hops, caramel and yeast. The flawor is also moderatly sweet, with notes of malt, caramel, hops and metal. Nice party beeer, but nothing great.

Sigmund (4939) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 7, 2009
Sample from 500 ml can, as Amber Classic, Westerheim stand at Smak 09. ABV is 5.2%. Golden colour, moderate head. Moderate malty aroma. The flavour is clean and fairly malty for a pilsener, with moderate hops in the finish.

Rated: 23.01.2008
Can, 500 ml, 11P
Appearance: Pours bright shiny, perfectly filtered, golden colur typicall of a Pilsener type beer colour. Head is medium to big in size, frothy, white with decent lacing, slowly decreasing to small, than lasting for quite a long time, carbonation of the body is initially medium , but quickly decreasing to gentle in intensity, 3/5 for a good lacing and well filtered body with a natural gass, again sediment flaoting in the body.
Aroma: Very faint and gentle, a bit milky, some hint of chalk and lemon, very simple, not much but positive, denoting quite high standard of lemon lager beer being Pilsener in type. Very mild and gentle floral aroma of hops when the beer gets warmer. Alcohol is not felt being very well hidden.
Flavour: Front is grainy and balanced between bitterness and sweetness, than what comes is a distinct grainy taste, flour, malted barley, chalk and a bit accidic - aromatic nose from hops and carbonation. Some notes of lemon and citrus in general. Very good balance between sweetness&bitterness. Finish duration is average.
Palate: Body is light, texture is rather wattery, not dry as Bohemian Pilsener, but still well balanced between bitterness and sweetness, carbonation is soft on palate. Finish feel is grainy and chalky.

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - AUG 19, 2007
Bottle and marked with an ABV of 5.5% versus the 5.2% listed on this site. Poured a small white head that mostly diminished, minimal lacing, visible carbonation, transparent, and a yellow hue. Nose was malty, some hops and corn. Flavor was malty, corn, hops, and somewhat crisp tasting. Tingly mouthfeel. Medium body. No desire to have this one again. Just didn’t like the taste of this one.

thedm (4924) - Fort Wayne, USA - AUG 5, 2007
This bottled brew from a bottle shop marked lot 80 poured a small sized head of foamy white colored bubbles that were and left behind a slightly hazy typically carbonated light yellow-white colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was floral and malty. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a mild malt hop aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of malt hops and floral. An OK brew just nothing special.

larsniclas (5528) - Billdal, SWEDEN - AUG 3, 2007
Canned. Pale golden with a brief, white head. Dry, papery nose with loads of sour vegetables. Sweet flavour with some notes of raisins. Ash-like bitterness.

Cornfield (5437) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - APR 17, 2007
Not a bad lager pour, a pale, slightly hazed yellow body with an initially creamy white head, albeit one-fingered. The aroma is bready with a drop of honey, some corn syrup, and... No hops(?).
I thought this was a Pilsener?
The mouthfeel is light and fluffy and a tad oily. It tastes bready with a splash of runny caramel and a very light herbal grassiness to it, but in no way does that qualify it as a Pilsener. This is a sessionable lager, but I agree with my colleague frankenkitty, it should be reclassified as a Premium Lager.
