nazzty (1271) - Ödåkra - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - MAY 30, 2012
Hard to find better tasting beer than Gröninger! Distinct flavor of malt and yeast with a gently rounded hop bitterness.

cadilhac (35) - 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.

Koelschtrinker (17308) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 16, 2011
Sieht eher nach einem Dunkel aus, was sich im Geschmack zum Glück nicht wiederspiegelt. Alles in allem ein sehr leckeres Bier mit herausragendem Nachgeschmack der sehr lange anhält. Test vom 12.9.2004, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 6,14,10,14,11,12 - 11,65

Geiserich (4122) - 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.

Holmen1 (4813) - Stavanger, NORWAY - AUG 25, 2012
0,33 flaske, gave fra Petro. En pils med stor fylde og fruktig smak. Går langt utenpå norsk standardpils.

JorisPPattyn (9472) - Ursel, 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!

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.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - APR 12, 2010
Pours gold with a white head. Smells semi-sweet with some citrussy hints. Tastes dry and floral with some grassy elements on the finish.
