Amber coloured. Thick white head. Malty, grassy slight spicy nose. Refreshing, somewhat hoppy flavour with a little acidity. Low bitterness in finish.

MiP (13598) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 26, 2005
Draught. Hazy dark copper colour. Tight, creamy white head. Low carbonation. Watery flavour. Aftertaste is very mild and boring. Not bitter. Not a pils.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - MAR 1, 2005
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.

Ungstrup (29334) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 5, 2004
An amber beer with a disappearing white head. The aroma is hoppy with notes of caramel. The flavor is sour with notes of caramel and lots of aroma hops leading to a lightly bitter end. The body is thin.

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - NOV 25, 2004
Brownish amber coloured. Malty aroma with strange fruity notes. Quite sweet and malty flavour. Boring and slightly thin. I don’t find much hops in this one.

MartinKubert (862) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 25, 2004
Rather dark colour for a pilsener. Orange --> brown. Malty nose with notes of straw. Weak and watery slightly metallic start. Not much flavour. Watery end. Some dryness.

hotstuff (4096) - Indiana, USA - OCT 30, 2004
Draft in Hamburg, Germany with Yogi and Pivo. Tan head, fair lacing, mostly transparent and uncarbonated with an orange hue. Malty, sweet and toffee? aroma. Lightly bitter, light hops, malty and toffee flavor. Smooth mouthfeel. Medium bodied beer.

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - OCT 11, 2004
The DM & Hotstuff’s European Honeymoon trip beer number 75. This draft brew from the brewpub in Hamburg Germany poured a small sized head of finely sized off-white colored bubbles that left behind a dark brown colored semi-transparent hazy uncarbonated body and a good lacing. The aroma was mildly malty and the mouth feel was very smooth and malty. The flavor contained notes of sweet malts toffee and mild caramel. This beer is the wrong color for the style of Pilsner and was down graded accordingly, but very good and extremely tasty.

JorisPPattyn (7929) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 18, 2004
Fully clear pale-amber; spritzily carbonated to good, dense cream-coloured head. Very malty nose, both pale & ambrée malts, sweet but fresh herbal smell also. Aroma of freshly separated double cream. Short bitterish onset, subsequently softening when the sweet malts appear, cookie-like. Retronasal and the tonguesides tell it however: here’s some serious hopping done. Flavour is again very herbal. Well bodied for a bottom-fermenting beer of only 5.1%. Slightly slick, long bitterish hop-aromatic aftertaste. I agree with Vienna because of the colour and the malts. But the hopping is entirely in the Northern German Pilsener style. I’m wondering at some of the comments that this wouldn’t be hoppy enough! Not for a Westcoast IPA, no... AND I like this - thanks Yogi & Pivo!

joet (2172) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - MAR 9, 2004
Mmmm a medium brown with substantial sticky, off-white foam. More aromatic hop components than flavor -- and mostly herbs around apiole. Some astringency in the feel. Thanks pivo and yogi!
