ChrisTurner (206) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 6, 2007
Bottle -- Pours a pale yellow with a largish fluffy white head with excellent retention. Lots of lacing. Light malty aroma. Watery palate. Crisp malty flavour with some sweetness up front and a bitter finish. A simple, straight forward brew with nothing at all unpleasant about it.

I had just finished moving a tonne of soil from the front of the house to the back. This was on a Monday after doing a good 10 hours at work and so it was more of a ’yes dear’ type of thing than a full on burst of macho strutting. Anyway it took about an hour and a bit which gave the six pack of Little Creatures in the fridge ample time to cool down. A lot colder than I would normally drink them but were they sublime. So I had two of these and thought I’d go a third when I spotted this on the shelf. Ah yes, one of the beers I picked up in Perth on my last visit. I’m sure on its own it is a much better beer but in these circumstances it was blown away. Very subtle malt and delicate hop aromas and flavours but quite soapy however which did detract from the taste. Altogether too subtle perhaps, even in the right setting and mood.

ALLOVATE (2436) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 12, 2006
Though the petty label leaves much to be desired I was pleasantly surprised by this one. It was just a simple, light summer refresher, as straight as an engineers rule, but oh-so easy to drink. Into a tall pilsner glass from the bottle. Palest, palest yellow in body with champagne-like carbonation rising up to surface below a loose, pillowy white crown that lasted and legged-well down the sides. Faintly vegetal aroma showing a mixed bag of leafy herbs, sweet/sour ripe lemons and just a distant whiff of grain. Honestly all rode on the flavour as everything else seemed questionable. In the mouth it is very light and very, very delicate. Again some distant grains in the flavour, slight sweetness upfront only playing second-fiddle to some lovely, spicy hops that dominate all the way into the sallow. Cracked lemon-pepper, damp grass and mint leaves, and some bitter vine-clippings dance across the tongue to hit an apex before a sourish, bitter hop swallow that deserves another. Quite zingy overall, not unbalanced - quite well made in fact - and very, very clean to taste. Nice!!! ( 33cL, 30/11/06, Int’l Beer Shop, W. Leederville)

bluevegie (3057) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 26, 2006
Almost golden body with an average white head. Nose was better than the Wernesgruner though that doesn’t say a lot. A little soapy in the taste, mild bitterness, mainly taste the malts just needs more bite.

EithCubes (5006) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 17, 2006
Bottle. Clear golden with a lacy white head. Smells malty and herby with a floral accent. Sweet taste with light bitterness. On the whole, quite smooth, but with a crisp beginning. A pleasant perfumey Pils, but too sweet for my taste. Thanks to MortizF!

pivnizub (8920) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 12, 2005
Bottle: Pale golden, fluffy and lasting white head; some vegetables in the nose, grains and a shy hoppiness; malty start, hoppy middle, malty-grainy finish with some hoppy traces coming very late. A very Export-like Pils.......

MoritzF (8562) - Bochum, GERMANY - OCT 5, 2005
(bottle) Pale golden colour with a foamy bubbling white medium head. Bread malty nose with a tinge of grassy hops. Crisp and clean mouthfeel, slightly sweet malty flavour and taste, dry and moderate hopbitter grassy finish. A fairly good Pilsener.

Bottle. Bready, metallic aroma. Yellow colour, big, rocky white head. Not much hop flavour. Medium bitterness, turning a bit harsh in the finish.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 15, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2007 (Bottle 50 cl) Courtesy of Grovlam. Clear, pale golden with a tall, dense and very white head. Clean and malty nose. Medium body with a solid, clean malt base. Some floral notes and a dry and hoppy finish. 080707

(Bottle 50 cl) Pale golden with a fairly decent head. Lightly malty with a marked bitter finish. Very classical German, but not absolute "spitzenklasse". 4/2/5/2/9=2.2 191200

chriso (7396) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2004
Pale gold colour. A dry pilsner, with a rather dusty mouthfeel. Definite malt character in the aroma. And, like others, I noted some hops coming through on the finish, which is quite dry and bitter. A decent German pilsner. 500ml bottle from beersofeurope.co.uk. BBE 3 October 2004.
