bockimstein (167) - New Madrid, Missouri, USA - OCT 2, 2011
Better than most European mass market lagers. 11.2 oz. to a German souvenir beer glass. Pours golden with small white head. Floral hops and some skunk. Very smooth, slightly sweet with a bite in the finish. Has the other Budweiser beat all to hell.

kubmal (149) - POLAND - MAY 25, 2016
Clear golden, medium head. Aroma od malt, saaz hops and metal. Taste is grainy, a bit sour with bitterness too low for a pilsner. Light and drinkable, doesn’t differ much from typical eurolagers.

kapusil (1050) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 22, 2016
0.5l can. Clear golden body with a thin white head. Aroma and taste of bread, grains, hay and floral hops. It’s one of the moderately hopped pilsners. OK beer.

thellgren (684) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 21, 2016
0.5 l bottle @ Cafe Piritta, Helsinki. Nice pale clear colour with a decent head. Even this imported bottle does have some of that malty flavour typical for Czech pilsners. Nice to have in a hot summer day.

Moretum (69) - Vienna, AUSTRIA, AUSTRIA - MAY 19, 2016
On tap. Clear golden colour with a massive, white head. Light sweet, malty and bready. Taste of malt, grain and light hops. Light to medium bitterness in the end. Light body with medium carbonation. Nothing special, but very refreshing.

nephirem (121) - CROATIA - MAY 10, 2016
Clear golden pour with small, short lasting white head. Typical lager smell, slightly sweet. Medium body with subtle carbonation. Taste balances sweet and sour notes with bitter aftertaste. Aroma is pretty standard, malts, yeast, some hops, a bit herbal and grassy. Overall, shares the fate of most of the beers of this style, too boring and unimaginative.
