Admission: I was sent the bottle for review. And these sat in my fridge for a while before I could get to them to note their availability in Illinois. But the pilsener here came through okay. I caught a slight note of oxidation in the nose, but that came with the slight pepper of noble hops. A light slightly biscuity malt flavor, clearly no adjuncts. Hop bitterness trickles down the back of my palate and hovers for just a minute or so. A decently done pilsener that hews to the style rather than over-hopping.

nuplastikk (4702) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 15, 2014
12oz bottle. Hazy yellow-tan body. Frothy thin white head. Disgusting off aroma. Above and beyond vile. Vomit, rye, grain. I wouldn’t even take a sip of this if I wasn’t ticking it. Horribly off. Sweet, almost nutty tones. Maybe the worst Pilsener ever. Congrats.

SDalkoholic (2179) - Linda Vista, California, USA - DEC 1, 2014
Bottle from Fresh & Easy: Poured a golden blonde topped with a fluffy foam head. The aroma is faint but I am able to detect a presence of grainy malts and a minor scent of perfume. The drink is crisp and comes across as balanced with a bready grain like flavor of malts and just a touch of hops. Rather boring beer but then again I didn’t expect much after I had already their brewnette and redhead and was not impressed by either. Expensive price to pay for beers that did not delivery.

lusikka (6525) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 8, 2014
355 ml bottle. Pours a golden colour with a small head. Aroma of dry papery malts, grains and sugary sweetness. Flavour of sweet maltiness, some pear, mild grassy notes, dry hay and paper. Light bodied and low carbonation. Booring.

They say this is a pilsner but call it a blond to keep up w/ their hair color naming scheme. I shouldn’t care about that but it bothers me. Honestly, this does seem like more of a blond ale than a pils anyway so I guess it shouldn’t matter. It is cloudy yellow w/ a white head of small bubbles. It has a strong doughy malt note in the nose along w/ a touch of grassy hops. Taste is a bit sweet w/ slightly oxidized malt notes. This is full bodied and a bit heavy for the style but not bad. It finishes with some lingering sweetness and grassy bitterness. Top to bottom, this strikes me as more of a novelty label than a good beer. I don’t see myself buying this again.

12 oz bottle. 15/214/138/13. From alesbymail.co.uk.
Slightly cloudy and lively golden colour with a small white head. Sweet malt, honey and mild hops in the aroma. The flavour is a bit stale malt, dry hay and mild hops. Bland.
