Pale yellow, thick white head; this disappointed - a thin pils with less bite and flavour than one would expect.

Pours a light straw with a moderate white top. Aroma is light straw and cereal malts. Taste is light grains and a small hop bitterness in the end. Solid German Pils.

kidmartinek (3507) - austin, Texas, USA - APR 29, 2014
Musty and very bitter aroma. It’s pale yellow with a thin white head. The taste is just bitter, no sweetness.

HeistAlmighty (1110) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - APR 21, 2014
500ml can. One of the nicer looking clear beers I’ve seen. Lively carbonation, gold colour, whipped cream head that lasted a long time. Aroma and taste aren’t too special, slightly hoppier lager than usual, cardboardy grain malt. Creamy but slightly watery body. Overall, it was a beverage.

Headbanger (3226) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 18, 2014
Bottle (Old Notes)-Pours a clear yellowish golden with a small head. Aroma of grains, sweetness, and malt. Taste of the same. This light bodied brew was not bad.

Clear golden appearance with medium head. Malty and grassy aroma, semi dry finish. Decent and enjoyable Pilsener.

Lowenbrau (1863) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 20, 2014
500ml can, somewhere in time. From old notes.
In short: average pilsener.
Another boring pilsener, nothing remarkable.

stevoj (1958) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 13, 2014
Catch up rating. Pours pale gold with a an airy short-lived head. The aroma is grass and some crackers. The taste is a pleasant mix of herbal, earthy noble hops and doughy pale malts. The bitterness is moderate but lasts a long while in the finish. The mouthfeel is light and prickly with carbonation, a little too much fizz here.This is a nice pilsner. Nothing particularly striking, but good balance and a competent hop profile. Worth trying.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein klares goldgelbes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch hopfig, getreidig, grasig. Geschmack hopfig, grasig, lang anhaltende Bitterkeit.
