esox (1225) - 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.

Theydon_Bois (17228) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2015
Keg at the brew tap, Hamburg, 16/07/15. Lightly hazed orange amber with a decent off white covering that retains well. Nose is malt, bread, light caramel, fruit rinds. Taste comprises caramel, fruit loaf, pastry, butterscotch, dried apricot. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Ok stuff, not sure why they call it a pils, a pretty malty - dark fruity #.

bierkoning (12570) - 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.

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 6, 2009
It’s hazy, warm golden and the aroma has notes of malt, caramel, fruit – it’s quite nice. The flavor has a light sweetness and notes of malt, caramel, light syrup, light fruit and the finish is dry. A pleasant beer.

McWorta (1530) - 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.

Japalo (1841) - DENMARK - SEP 4, 2013
Bottle @ Renaissance hotel Hamburg. Dark golden clear. Small head. Horney some Spice. Malty aromas. Dry. A better than normal pils.

bartlebier (3496) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - DEC 4, 2014
33cl bottle bb07/15, HH Bierland, one of few not heftily ransomed locals. Confidently copper, sweetish roast, honey and wort in the nose turn into a rich, roasty, nutty body of caramels, roasted nuts, marzipan, taking harsh unripe chestnut and helmgrass bitterness into unstable territory, lingering as if weirdly aromahopped. Overall rather unbalanced, but with character, like some of the best of life’s companions. What an accident of a pilsner, especially a Northern one, - yet what a singular Vienna! Nothing on the label warns that this is not an actual pils, hence hard to rate true to style. Caveat emptor/imbibor.

Bottled. Goldeny orange colour with a small slightly off-white head. Aroma is grains, some bready malts as well as herbs and slight leathery notes. Flavour is bready and caramelly malts along with some wood and mild herbal notes as well. Mild roasted notes as well once it warms up.
