3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from MiP. Way too dark to be called a pilsener, brown color. Malt and butter in the somewhat mineral aroma. Malty sweet flavor with a touch of citrus, hints of butter and toffee. Somewhat sticky mouthfeel. Buttery toffee aftertaste with a touch of flowery hops.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught, from a mini keg served at the table. Deep amber with a small, short-lasting white head. Toasty flavor slightly on the sweet side - delightful darker "pils".

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(bottle, with thanks to Jevers Zeuge @ biertest-online.de) Clear amber colour with a stable and foamy off-white medium head. Sweet malty, slightly toasted aroma with shy notes of hops. Soft sweet malty flavour, light to medium body, crispy mouthfeel; sweet malty finish with very shy notes of hops. This one lacks obviously some balancing hoppiness; fairly average brew.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Mildly hoppy, sweetish aroma with pale malts. Amber colored with a short lacing white head. Crisp bite with notes of caramel, flowers, herbs, and a sweet bready malts. Bitterness is faint and constrained to the hoppy aftertaste. Smooth, creamy middle. Unusual.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught. Served very cold. The body is orange-copper with a small, short-lasting white head. The aroma has mostly pale grain malts, toast, and nutty caramel. Soft body - moderate carbonation and slightly abbrasive bitterness. Toasty flavours among some sweetish grain - actually pretty decent overall. Refreshing.
Tried this at the brewpub in Hamburg on May 24, 2006.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the brewpub: Amber in colour with a short lasting large white head. Very balanced clean malt profile with a pleasantly bitter finish. Full bodied pils that I could drink all day.

Draught in brewpub. Deep amber Vienna-style beer. Quite thin malty taste, some dryness, toffee undertones. A hint of phenol in the bland toffee finish. Poor.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled. Dark copper/light brown colour. Medium, lacey head. Floral, hoppy aroma with a malt undertone. Slightly insipid, herbal taste with some malty notes, but actually a tad bland. Also watery, and lacking in carbonation. Not a drain pour, but not good or even average. Thanks, yogi_beera and pivo.
