Geiserich (3864) - Linz, AUSTRIA - MAY 24, 2008
Draught: Fresh, yeasty and hoppy aroma. Light amber color, low creamy head, quickly diminishing. Very fruity flavor, hop aromatic, fruity and light herbal. Hints of grain. Dry, herbal bitter finish. Very tasty, fruity and unusual fruity pils.

petermadsen (390) - Vesterbronxxx, DENMARK - FEB 22, 2008
A very malty beer. Still quite crisp and clean and with a low but delicate hopflavour. Not too bad.

bierkoning (11539) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - SEP 10, 2007
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.

dddoty (1) - USA - JAN 28, 2007 does not count
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".

MoritzF (8926) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - AUG 4, 2006
(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.

EithCubes (5307) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 10, 2006
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.

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 2, 2006
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.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - MAY 31, 2006
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.

Gazza (726) - Worcester, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2006
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.
