Grima (2195) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - FEB 4, 2012
Sorry for the german rating, but this is a lousy rating from my "newbie" time (2007-2009), and it’s not worth of being translated. I just added it for the statistics, and to complete my backlog!
Im Glas kommt das Bier schön goldgelb zur Geltung, die mittelfeine Schaumkrone verfällt einigermaßen schnell. Der Antrunk fällt sehr hopfig frisch aus, der Abgang wird ein wenig malziger. Feines, gut würziges Pils! Lecker!

mutz (713) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 3, 2012
Goudgeel met een goed kraag. Ruikt frisbitter. De smaak is flauw en de afdronk niet noemenswaardig. Typisch geval van een pils dat er beter uitziet dan smaakt.

Hugi (467) - Waldkirch, GERMANY - SEP 25, 2011
Gold with a medium head. Tastes a bit malty and a heavy taste of perfume from the hops used. But nothing more in there. really boring finish.

MartinT (8619) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 29, 2011
My Bottom Line :
This textbook German Pils lays fine spicy hops onto a crisp bed of straw-like malts in a prickly and dry mouthfeel made for quenching.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A ring of foam circles the clear golden.
-The finish is not too bitter and not too sweet, a continuation of the flavor profile in soft mode.
-The prickly carbonation can get a little tiresome after a while. I much prefer the softness of their Urtrunk in that regard (and the complexity of its yeast, but that’s another story.).
-Even though this is dry, it is not as dry at the marvelous Rothaus Pils, for example.

On tap at Ganter Brauereiausschank, in Freiburg im Breisgau.

Koelschtrinker (13105) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 17, 2011
Selten so ein gutes Pils getrunken. Zum genießen, gleichzeitig sehr süffig und hopfig. An diesem Pils müssen sich andere Biere messen! Test vom 7.12.2004, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,12,15,10,12,13 - 12,25

Archibaldo de la Cruz (1121) - FINLAND - MAR 5, 2011
Golden colour with a medium-sized white head. Fruity aroma with malty notes. Flavour is quite dry, slightly grassy with some citrus, malt and nice bitterness in the finish.

TaxiDriver (1553) - Stadland, GERMANY - FEB 6, 2011
Bottle. A soft smell of citrus, some yeast and cookies. The white medium large creamy-foamy head has a normal duration, the body is pale yellow. The taste is light metallic, quite bitter, some cardboard. The body is light, quite watery with a soft carbonation.

jaghana (4729) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - FEB 5, 2011
Bottle 50cl. A clear golden beer with good head and lacing. Smell is hopy and spicy. Aroma is malty and very dry, lot of hops in the nose, very spicy and grassy, high bitterness. Some vegetable in the aroma too.

RichardGretton (4434) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2010
Draft@Freiburg, Germany. Golden beer with a strongish head. The aroma is plainly dry, and the flavour is malty and very dry. Overall a very gasey, very dry beer, with some yeast, a bit too strong tasting.

Embrouille (2831) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 29, 2010
Bottled 50cl. Bought in Lörrach. A very nice aroma which is waxy, hoppy, grainy and hoppy. True to the style. Decent bitterness.
