cadilhac (36) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2016
Pours hazy, copper, surprising since it’s simply announced as a pils. A nice caramel roasty smell and taste, well balanced. Some salt.

StueyD (1567) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2015
A cloudy, dark orange red coloured beer with a weak white head. A light malty aroma, bready and nutty with a hint of caramel. Medium dry mouthfeel. A mild, quite sweet malt flavour, dark bread, nutty and caramel, followed by a zesty hop bitterness that tempers the sweetness, leaving a refreshing flavour in the finish. Draught @ Gröninger Braukeller, Hamburg.

Theydon_Bois (17229) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2015
Keg at the brew tap, Hamburg, 16/07/15. Lightly hazed orange amber with a decent off white covering that retains well. Nose is malt, bread, light caramel, fruit rinds. Taste comprises caramel, fruit loaf, pastry, butterscotch, dried apricot. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Ok stuff, not sure why they call it a pils, a pretty malty - dark fruity #.

BlackHaddock (6380) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2014
11th Dec 2014, 0.4 litre on tap at it’s source, the Groninger Braukeller, Hamburg. Poured a misty amber golden colour with a white head that gave off some good lacing. Aroma came across as malty and grainy and semi-sweet in nature. The taste followed the same lines with a light sweet lead with a mini caramel feel.

bartlebier (3496) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - DEC 4, 2014
33cl bottle bb07/15, HH Bierland, one of few not heftily ransomed locals. Confidently copper, sweetish roast, honey and wort in the nose turn into a rich, roasty, nutty body of caramels, roasted nuts, marzipan, taking harsh unripe chestnut and helmgrass bitterness into unstable territory, lingering as if weirdly aromahopped. Overall rather unbalanced, but with character, like some of the best of life’s companions. What an accident of a pilsner, especially a Northern one, - yet what a singular Vienna! Nothing on the label warns that this is not an actual pils, hence hard to rate true to style. Caveat emptor/imbibor.
