COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A truly great Pils, a little maltier and more ‘Bavarian’ than the rest. The 6-packs are brand new for the American market.

Nate (3549) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 4, 2003
Weak aroma, bitter and metallic. Dark yellow clear with white wispy lacing head. Medium body and carb. Well-balanced malts and hops, not big. Finish is a bit bitter but pleasant. After is light bitter.

hopscotch (8529) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 19, 2003
Sparkling clear, very pale yellow lager. Large, rocky, mostly lasting white head. The nose is of honey, pepper and apricot. Sweet, tart and citrusy up front, the flavor is balanced by moderately bitter hops on the backside. Hints of mint and honey. Light-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Short, crisp, bitter finish. A good pils!

argo0 (11181) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 15, 2003
Clear yellow body topped by a big white head. Aroma is fairly sweet, apple, cereal, some floral, light grassy. Taste is grassy, apple. Finish is medium grassy. Watery light/medium body, slight crispness.

CEZ (396) - Milano, ITALY - AUG 5, 2003
Nice fluffy head and golden color. Malty and floral aroma. Taste is moderately sweet with a good malt consistence, and a long, dry finish. A good pils, overall.

beerking99 (199) - Virginia, USA - AUG 3, 2003
Very nice aroma, soft malt and hops. No skunk, glad this is not in a green bottle. Must be a fresh bottle. Beautiful pale gold, with a nice white head. Flavor is pure hops and malt. No yeast character or esters, as expected from a world class lager. Generous Sazz hops, with a fading malt tail. Aftertaste says MORE!

Voivod (304) - Como, ITALY - JUL 29, 2003
Golden colour with a generous head, really lasting. The flavour is well balanced and quite malty, with an hoppy finish, with the right amount of bitterness. Really nice.

Sigmund (4809) - Tau, NORWAY - JUL 29, 2003
(5 liter mini-keg, ABV 4,9%). Moderate aroma of hay, light golden colour, enormous head when poured from the mini-keg - like the head of a weissbier. Clean crisp flavour, good bitterness makes this a better-than-average pilsener. The mini-keg is great for parties!

zborgerd (187) - Illinois, USA - JUL 20, 2003
This is one of the better Kulmbacher beers that I've had the opportunity to drink. Pours a light yellow with a thick, creamy head. Hops are just about right for a pils, and leave a slight bitter finish. I'm pleased that this pils is a bit more maltier than most. I actually prefer this to Urquel. Mini-keg @ $10.99. This one is crisp and surprisingly refreshing.

Cobra (1100) - Banned City, - JUL 14, 2003
11.2 oz brown bottle. Freshness date of 03105. Whatever that stands for. Poured out a clear, very light, straw yellow color. Not much head to speak of, left a thin covering of fine bubbles at the top of the glass. Aromas of lemons, pilsner malts, yeast, and some bread in the nose. Tastes crisp, lemony, somewhat refreshing. Slight hops bite at the end, not much else. Much better than American macro swill, that much is certain.
