HazelRah (276) - Summerland, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 6, 2005
Aroma reminiscent of papayas, bananas etc. Pours a mellow yellow with a small head. Flavour is quite dry and biscuity. Slightly warming too, impressive for a pils. This is all around one of the best pilsners I’ve tasted.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - AUG 23, 2005
Bottled. Pale golden colour. Medium, beautifully frothy head. Flowery hop aroma. Slightly sweetish, flowery, hoppy with a hint of maltiness. Ends medium dry, but with a lasting hop-bitter aftertaste. Body is a tad too light. Good pilsner of the southern-German type.

From the Can: Pours pale yellow with foamy white head that has a decent retension till about halfway or a bit better. Grassy aroma Taste is sweet and grainy somewhat carbonated with a metallic slightly bitter aftertaste.

theacelatrain (262) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 4, 2005
Bottle. Plain clear gold color without much head. Flavor is too sweet and malty, with little hops to balance.

JonMoore (1939) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2005

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 13, 2005
Grainy malts and leafy green hops in the nose. Clear plae gold with shy, white, fully-diminishing head. Sweet, mild, grainy flavour is lightly bitter towards the finish, but doesn’t have the crispness one would expect from a top-notch pils. Light body is somewhat fizzy and watery. Sampled at Mondial de la Bière 2005.

MoritzF (8644) - Bochum, GERMANY - JUN 8, 2005
(bottle) Clear body with a pale golden colour and an average frothy white head. Harsh strawy malty aroma with a tinge of grassy hops in the background. Light sweet flavour, malty taste with a bitterdry hoppy finish. Thin texture but fizzy carbonated. Rather unpleasant and decent.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUN 7, 2005
Sample from can at the Mondial. Very, very, very...ok, extremely pale, lots of bubbles, no head to mention...dry herbal nose, faint but reasonably fresh...fairly bitter, dry body throughout, just enough honey sweetness to keep it drinkable but without enough malt to make it interesting.
