Hugi (475) - Waldkirch, GERMANY - FEB 5, 2012
Pours hazy golden with a medium head. Smells like yeast and flowers. Tastes quite yeasty, malty (a bit of caramel) and at the end with a pleasent bitterness. Full bodied, medium carbonization. A good one!

pivnizub (10030) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JAN 28, 2012
Bügelverschlußflasche (Quack-Duck hat’s gefunden!): Hazy, golden, smaller white head, lazy carbonation, moderate dry bitter-hoppy nose with a small amount of malt underneath; solid bitter-sweet flavour, light bodied and pretty soft; lingering dryish hoppy and malty finish with some "edges". Very good, but the filtered version is slightly better rounded......

Bottle 33cl, a cloudy golden beer with good head. Nose is hopy and malty. A very nice pilsner with pleasant malt and cereal notes, quite sweet, intense hops bouquet on citrus and hay. High bitterness and very nice perfume. On on the best pils I had, long bitter and pleasant aftertaste, good !

MartinT (9191) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 30, 2011
My Bottom Line :
Wildflower honey angles ride this dry German Pilsener’s frothy effervescence until peppery, herbal hops delicately appose their unmistakable signature on the finish.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A tower of foam protects the misty golden.
-The high level of effervescence and relative dryness makes for a quenching brew.
-This may not be as intricate as the Rothaus Pils, but it is very well made and is not your stereotypical, run-of-the-mill recipe. House character is quite pleasant.
-The nose is rather devoid of personality. Perhaps an early sign of aging? This swing-top bottle surely can’t help…
-The finishing hoppiness is levelled with the rest of the brew’s mild intensity.

TaxiDriver (1694) - Stadland, GERMANY - FEB 13, 2011
Bottle. A light sweet smell of cakes, nearly no hops. The medium large white fizzy-creamy head has a normal duration, the body is cloudy and yellow-orange. The taste is rather bitter, unfortunately a little bit medical and soapy. The body is at first creamy, then dry and in the finish creamy again. The beer has a normal carbonation and is light to medium strong.

MiP (15193) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 7, 2010
Bottle, 4.9%. Refreshing dusty aroma. Clear golden colour. Big stable white head. Good malty flavour. Good bitterness also, not high, but clean. Very nice and clean, does not taste much of Kräusen or yeast, but good.

Ungstrup (34023) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 22, 2009
Bottled. A hazy golden beer with a lazing white head. The aroma has notes of straw and minerals as well as lighter notes of malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of lime, malt, straw, and some minerals, leading to a dry mineralic finish. Thanks fonefan for sharing.
