It’s been a while since I had this fresh, in Germany, but oh boy was it good. This is a lot like pilsener Urquell, but sweeter/maltier. I’m anxious to try it now that it will be here in the USA.

Desverger (3969) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 2, 2015
Tap@Taphouse, Copenhagen (16/07/2015) - pours golden yellow with a white head. Aroma and taste is grassy and grainy, straw, hay, crisp and light on the palate, medium to light in body, with a clean crisp bitter finish.

Gangstergafje (284) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - AUG 1, 2015
The beer has a typical pilsener appearance. The beer has a pale yellow color and little foam. The smell has some barley, together with a tiny roast aroma. The taste is nice. It has a little tropical sourness, caused by the hops. The beer is very tasteful. There is a nice bitterness and a little alcohol touch. Nice.

Pours a deeper golden bronze than the USA knock off. Head is white that leaves some lacing and quickly dissipates. Nose is dominated by the malt. Tate has a touch of sweetness - ever so little. It’s followed by the earthiness of the malt and hops. Mouthfeel is good with a medium light body. It is far better than the USA knock off. 11.2 oz bottle

330 ml bottle @ 5.0%. A fine well balanced Lager that is not too sweet and has great mouth feel. Hard to put down with the grassy hops.

.5l from refrigerated bottle. Pretty tasty. Refreshing and crisp. Lightly malty, a hint of bitterness. Clean, overall, without too much taste.

One of the best pilseners I have tasted in a long time, little in bitterness but strong in carbon dioxide. Sweet taste and taste for more. Nice after bite.

bartholos (100) - GERMANY - JUL 20, 2015
Bottle. Golden-yellow colored with some orange. Clear and sparkling with a white frothy head. Hoppy smell, fruity with floral notes, hints of grapes and some bready malts. Pleasantly medium bitter balanced by light sweetness. Flavor is fruity and floral as well. Body is light to medium with high carbonation. Well balanced and harmonic in aroma and taste with a nice bitter finish and pleasantly light but long aftertaste.

Pours a golden color with a white head. A very refreshing beer with a subtle biscuit flavor.
