Cloudy, orangey-coloured, with a malt accent. I know they call it a pils, but my personal call would be Vienna. Especially from Hamburg, it just isn’t that hoppy to be a pils. Good fresh, character though.

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.

mds (2218) - 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.

DerWeg (1501) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 3, 2008
Bottle I think from friends in Zeitz. Rocky coarse head leaving large traces, some refined noble hopping and light sweet fruit on the nose and pleasing bitter finish. Possibly a touch skunky or animal. Hint fruitiness in flavor. Enjoyed overall.

thewolf (11191) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 9, 2012
Bottle, bought @ Bierspezi Hoheluft, Hamburg.
Clear amber with a big, staying, creamy, white head. Really lovely looks. Aroma is sweet an malty, some maize, soft caramel, light grassy and citrussy. Medium carbonation, light but okay dry mouthfeel. Flavour is relatively sweet, some sugary caramel notes, fairly malty, very little adjunct flavour. Quite solid grassy bitterness with just a faint bit of metal. Fresh.

esox (1085) - Oulu, FINLAND - FEB 25, 2012
Draught @ Göninger Bräuhaus, Hamburg. Hazy orange colour, rich and creamy head. Grainy and bready malt aroma with grassy hops. More like a helles, it sweetish and more malt than hop-oriented. Slightly drier lopun and bitterish finish. Fresh and smooth body. OK.

joergen (21072) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 4, 2013
Draught at Gröninger Braukeller. Hazy amber coloured with a medium sized off-white head. Sweet and malty aroma of caramel, hay and bread. Malty flavour of hay and caramel with notes of hops. Hoppy finish.

McWorta (606) - LUXEMBOURG - JUN 30, 2013
Bit hazy dark orange/amber colour with a pillowy whitish head. Noses of straw, floral and hints of hops. Light lively on the palate with a medium body. Watery/slick texture building light bitter sweet notes. The finish is fast but lasts a little bit right at the back of your palate.
