Plenty of hops - still smooth, incredible light color and still a 5% beer with a wonderful bloom.

hopdog (10491) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 25, 2005
12oz bottle labeled best before Oct. í05. Poured a lighter and slightly hazy golden color with an averaged sized white head. Aromas of we grass, grain, banana and somewhat fruity. Tastes of banana, grain and a little doughy. The body was stronger compared to the other Pilsners of late (may have been the doughy/breadiness to it).

DarkElf (3050) - La Jolla, California, USA - SEP 29, 2005
(12 oz bottle: Belmont Station in Portland, OR) Best before October, 2005, so Iím within their window. This is supposed to be a crisp, hoppy pilsener, but it smells sweet and somewhat caramely, reminiscent of a light Oktoberfest, and oddly, shows a touch of alcohol in the nose as well. Similarly, in the flavor, itís sweet, lightly caramely and a bit bready. Itís also mildly bitter and grassy, but never hints at anything Iíd consider "hoppy". In addition, there are some other odd flavors that seem kind of floral, but I just canít identify what Iím tasting. Medium bodied, so itís even a bit heavier than most pilseners Iíve tried, and it doesnít really approach the crispness the brewery claims. Pale golden in color, somewhat hazy in appearance, but the off-white head pours very small and quickly fades to a tiny ring, leaving no lacing. A very strange pilsener with some unidentifiable flavors, but that doesnít mean itís not enjoyable. But I think this beer shares as much in common with an Oktoberfest as it does with a pilsener, maybe even moreso, actually.

Tap. Clear, medium golden/yellow colored. Not much head formation, just a layer of bubbles, no lacing. Aroma is lightly grainy, just a touch of noble hop, slightly grassy. Light malt up front, fair bitterness in the middle and finish. Clean. LIghter bodied, seriously undercarbonated. Fair.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - AUG 11, 2005
Nice golden color,small white head that had a decent but short lived head.Nice hoppy aroma with a mild malt side and even a mild fruitside but it might be pushing it a bit.The flavor was nothing special but decent enough.Slightly sweet in a way with a decent hop presence and mild malt side but over all not worth getting bent out of shape over.Try it once and see if itís worth going further.

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - JUL 6, 2005
Draft - I found this beer to be well done. Nice malty flavor, crisp finish. Perfectly hoppy. Excellent beer in the German style.

Perkeo (322) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 30, 2005
Yellow to orange with quickly dissapating foam, though convincing looking initially. Nice noble hop and bready malt aroma, pretty smooth with a nice balance of czech like maltiness and bavarian hoppiness. Perfectly serviceable pils.

OD40oz (774) - Box Elder, South Dakota, USA - FEB 26, 2005
This had the skunkish smell of a pilsener. Yellow with a white head to it. Smooth taste with a slightly harsh aftertaste. This beer was pretty good. I had it with pretzels and it gave me a hellacious case of the hiccups.

wulfhere (217) - Billings, Montana, USA - NOV 27, 2004
bottle. honey golden, good sized head of very fine bubbles with decent lacing overall. Nose is yeasty, malty wih the fresh aroma of noble hops springing out of the glass! The flavor is balanced, with some bread like flavor and a hint of banana, offset with just the right hop bitterness. Finish is clean, mid-dry and a slightly bitter edge on the tail end. Jurgen Knoller (the brewer) brags uo this beer something fierce on his site, and although this isnít the best Pilsner on "either side of the Atlantic," it IS pretty damn good.
