Aroma: Cereal and herb notes. Slightly metallic.

Appearance: Completely clear, light golden body with a fluffy white head that steadily fades. Average carbonation. No lacing.

Taste: Clean tasting pilsener with a nice, bitter finish. Light cereal, earthy and muted nutty flavours.

Palate: Thin to medium body with a slick, oily mouthfeel. Soft carbonation fizz.

Overall: Simple, light and moreish. For me, it’s hard to get too excited about a pilsener, but this is a good example of the style.

Leighton (10419) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2012
Bottle picked up from Sourced St. Pancras, drank at a picnic in a Paris park with Lyoli on a sunny Sunday afternoon in September. Pours clear gold with a small, frothy white foam head. Moderate grain in the nose, some cereal, toasty hay. Light sweet flavor, toasty cereal again, faint grass, toasty bitter straw. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Crisp finish, some bitter and grassy hay, light toasted bread, cereal and grainy malts. A touch too bitter, maybe, but generally alright.

McNeillR (1088) - SCOTLAND - AUG 22, 2012
Stern, neatly carbonated subtle yellow body with a consistent ring head and a stale air freshener nose. Initially fresh mulch of a Pilsner, trickles of leftfield Hops and the Barley sandwiches in on the finish. A little too much of a squeeze, akin to an overly wattery bag of lettuce that takes away any decent linger. A nice effort but far from blowing the tastbuds away and not near refreshing enough for a cheeky Pilsner - especially at 4%. (Bottle, Vino, Edinburgh)

Quack-Duck (7713) - Down South, GERMANY - DEC 28, 2013
bottle from Darts Farm Topsham. Clear golden yellow with a creamy white head. Hoppy nose. Malty with a shy fruity touch and good Saaz hop flavours, lingering bitter-sweet finish.

BeerCast_Rich (1847) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 8, 2013
[500ml bottle, Vino Comiston, Edinburgh] Looks the part in the glass - brilliantly golden and with a tight, puffy head. Rising carbonation streams upwards, untroubled. Clean, soft, grassy on the nose, slightly musty in that sometimes-Czech way. Tastewise, it starts well, with some lightly toasted cereal malt and dry hay. Although it fades somewhat into that slightly metallic place some conti-lagers go to, it’s not too bad - it shares that softness ˇatec has (unsurprisingly), and although it could be crisper, that trade-off is, on balance, just about worth it [08012013]

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 9, 2012
Bottle from Vino. Pours a blonde colour with a fair white head. Aroma of grassy hops, caramel, yeast and alcohol. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation and CO2 prickle and a foamy mouth-feel.

richc (239) - Bolton, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2013
Fairly classic pilsner aroma with gentle malt and a moderate spicy hop. Flavour follows aroma, pleasant but nothing outstanding

harrisoni (13144) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2013
Bottle from St Pancras Sourced Market. Pale gold lasting white head. Cereal and bready lager aroma. A little herbal yes in the flavour. But this is rather drinkable I think. Yeah I think this is pretty decent. Bit of puke develops, but otherwise fine.

500ml bottle from Beer Hawk - A pale golden pour, white head, that goes rather quickly. The nose is quite sweet, yet grassy. The taste is nothing special. I’d go as far as to say an average lager.
