BlackHaddock (3479) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2012
Brown 33cl bottle, best before May 2009, drank Jan 2009. Poured into a Veltins Pilsner tulip (twice). One of the clearest pilsners I’ve ever seen, very, very pale yellow, not even enough colour to call it golden. The fine looking white head that sat on top after each pour soon faded to lacing and wisps, shame. Odourless, and I mean odourless. Even as the beer warms, no aromas could be found, gets my standard pilsner/lager score of 3. Typical Bavarian pilsner feel and taste, clean, crisp and refreshing. Pilsners are not supposed to have strong flavours that knock you about and this one is no different. It does however keep it’s charactor throughout the drink, I mean it doesn’t go all metalic, or tinny and the last sip is as good as the first with no nasty aftertaste. One of the better Pilsners I’ve had.

EithCubes (4701) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 9, 2012
Bottle by 08.12. Pale golden, creamy rocky bright white. Lightly sweet, perhaps a touch less juicy and more metallic than the tap Löwenbräu I just had (and seem to prefer), still some good hop juice and dries out . Light-medium body, not all that bitter.

rozsoma (462) - HUNGARY - APR 9, 2012
Bottle, Augustiner Brau-stuben, Munich. Nice sparkling colour, herbs in the aroma, bitter taste and hoppy dryness in the end. A classic german pilsener. I don’t understand why all the pilseners are only avaible in bottle in Bavaria, why can’t I get a draugt one anywhere?

Aroma: Hay and honey, flowers and grass. Mouthfeel: Medium body. Taste: Bitter and crisp. Finish: Very dry with a lasting bitterness. Overall: Very nice, indeed. Dry and hoppy.

squarta (67) - - FEB 22, 2012
Una birra che più birra non si può, almeno nell’aspetto: dorata e frizzante, con un cappello di schiuma timido e fragile e una trasparenza degna di uno swarowski. L’odore non corrisponde all’etichetta e a quello che ci si aspetterebbe da quella che all’aspetto si direbbe la più tradizionale delle pils perchè è molto sbilanciato sui lievito ha un che di dolciastro e melenso. il gusto si apre con una nota dolce che ancora una volta spiazza, ma che poi lascia il posto ai sentori più tipici delle pilsner: luppolo in netta evidenza che in questo caso non è sinonimo di amaro ma piuttosto di "vegetale" perchè ad occhi chiusi si giurerebbe di avere in bocca un bacello di fave, al punto che il sapore complessivo sconfina nel dolce. Retrogusto discreto, per non dire identico al sapore per quella che a conti fatti è una buona birra, ma non è tra quelle che ti cambiano la vita.

Countbeer (4301) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - FEB 20, 2012
Had this In Munchen years ago, in one of the many bierkellers/biergarten/bierhalle. The typical glass 1 liter beer mugs filled with this Munich goody do taste good. is it because of the friendly and laughing company, which you get for free in those grand beer places? At least you get a good vibe and the atmosphere is good. Tasty and good looking (thanks to the mug). And within a short period of time, I am ready for a 2nd mug! Bitte gein bit...

lusikka (5937) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 15, 2012
330 ml bottle. BBE 03/2012.
Pours a clear golden colour with a small white head. Aroma of sweet malts, light grains and some citrus. Flavour of grainy malts, strong grassy hops, citrus, herbs, bubblegum and honey. Medium bodied, quite high carbonation and a surprisingly bitter, dry and grassy finish. After a while some sweet honey notes and herbs in the finish as well. Really a tasty pils.
