BlackHaddock (4144) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2012
Brown 50cl bottle, well in date. The first of my German Beer Reviewing Evening on 20th Feb 2009.. Poured into my Budweiser Budvar 0.2 litre stemmed tulip tasting glass (3 times). Clear golden yellow, fairly pale and bright looking. A large white head sat on top of each pour, sadly the heads all fell away as I drank down each beer, leaving a small collar and some good lacing. A very slight floral aroma, but not enough to get excited about, otherwise there was no smell, just like most lagers/helles/pilsners. Dry and refreshing, sharp and crisp. No huge flavours to talk about, but a good example of a German light lager/pilsner. No great body or depth, just a pleasant lager, easy to drink. The 5.3% is just about detectable. My third glass was taken with some vintage Stilton and dry biscuits, they complimented each other very well. Now to have some water to clean out the mouth before my next German review.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 5, 2012
On cask at Cloisters. Pours a blonde colour with a thick white head. Aroma of bready yeast and caramel. Similar flavours with heavy carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel. Not overly exciting.

StuffWine (134) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 19, 2012
Clear straw-amber hue, weak white head quickly gone (not a speck of lace). Thin aroma of stale sour white bread. One-dimensional thin lager taste with a touch of grass. Thin bodied and watery on palate, soft carbonation. Moderate bitter hops finish. A let down to german beer. But was cold and i wanted a beer (better than water).

Bottle. Quite a simple, grassy lager. Not really my cup of tea but ok for a lager I guess

oh6gdx (20930) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 8, 2011
Draught@Euston Tap, London. Yellowish golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is malts, some bready notes, mild diacetyl/buttery notes as well as quite pleasant grassy/hayish hopping. Flavour is rather similar with the diacetyl being toned down a bit. A brew that’s actually a bit more to the Czech style than German.

bhensonb (11526) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 8, 2011
Bottle at Munich Airport as Premium Pilsner. Pours clear gole with a 2 finger foamy white head. Aroma of near medium body. Flavor is quite grassy, and the finish is crisp and bitter.
