Leighton (14701) - London, Greater London, - NOV 28, 2012
On tap at the brewpub, Copenhagen. Pours clear, rich gold with a big, white foam head. Nose holds a bit of toasty cereal, nice biscuits, and dry, floral grass. Light to medium sweet flavor with good, toasty bread and biscuits, light dank floral notes, some light, dry grassy bitterness. Light to medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Good mouthfeel. Lightly drying on the finish, with some dirty grass bitters, toasty cereal, toasty sugars and very light grains. A very respectable pils.

olsvammel (4339) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 2, 2015
On tap at the restaurant at Tivoli in Copenhagen. Very light smell with some bread. Bready and light fruity taste. A bit artificial. Fairly smooth. Light bitterness but more then the other three beers I had here. Very light beer, didn’t stand out.

Look; off white layer, pale straw body. Aroma; spices, candies, toffee, malts. Taste; caramel, malts, toffeefee, dusty hops behind - leading to a easy sweet finish with light malts and grass. Light body, summer feel, good enough. [15cl taster "Flakhaven Pilsner" @ Flakhaven Odense DK, T@Ferie2015]

Damn, another one... I’ll have to recheck my entire journey’s worth of notes. Lost rating from my Denmark/Sweden/Norway trip in September 2010. Maybe when I visited it with Papsoe (and potential thanks? :)). Golden body, big head that went away slowly (damn... proud I managed to decipher my shorthand here... BhSlo (FFS Marko, FFS)). Light grainy nose. Nice grainy taste, quite nice graininess, vague hop bitterness. Something else that might be herbal acidity?!?, which I found nice?!? Overall not too special, but a solid beer.

Gylden brun tåkete med lavt hvitt skum. Malt, frukter og kornlukt. Fyldig pilsner med smak av en del humle samt korn og noe frukt. Medium kullsyre.

Wanja (710) - GERMANY - AUG 21, 2013
On tap (0.15 l as a tester) at Flakhaven brewery, Odense... Clody light golden color, almost invisible. Average head... Mild natural hop aroma of flavors, grain and nature... Too mild, even watery, taste for a Pilsener... Boring ending...

Draught@Apollo, Copenhagen. I’ve always missed this one, and this time was very close as well, until it struck me like lightning, I need the pils! Golden colour, mediumsized creamy head, that leaves good lace. Aroma is bready, slightly yeasty with some nice grass and grains as well. Flavour is grassy, floral and some hay along with sweet malts. Balanced and quite Czech like. Felt very fresh.
