pivo (2628) - GERMANY - SEP 11, 2002
Pils? Not quite, but a decent beer anyway. Slightly sulfury nose lost a few point with me. Generally a fresh smelling and tasting beer. Deep cloudy amber color. Gritty finish. Overall tasty but not really balanced. Unbelievable atmosphere in the Braukeller. You know you are in Europe/Germany as soon as you walk into the 250 year-old establishment. It’s the kind of experience Disney couldn’t make with a million dollars.

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".

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 25, 2011
0.33L bottle. Coarse grey-shaded blond head. Deep gold to amber colored body. Fat aroma of malt drops. Notes of grassy hops. Full malt flavor. Nutty, light sweet and toasted with a nice sourish touch. Moderately hopped. Light to medium body strenght. Slick mouthfeel. Malty finish.

WillemsUrenkel (885) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - MAR 15, 2014
0,33 l bottle. A light amber in the glass with a huge head. Low dry malt on the nose. Roast malty with hints of citrus. Low herb, dusty. Typical standard Vienna Lager. Don´t know why they call it Pils.

kappldav123 (5437) - GERMANY - AUG 22, 2014
Thanks to WillemsUrenkel for that one! Bottle looks simple but okay. Beer in the glass zippy, small head. Malty aroma. Starts quite malty, spicy, wheaty, light moldy-sourish. Notes of some fruits. Finish could be more balanced. Okay.

floydian1 (1155) - FNQ, Australia, - OCT 27, 2014
From a 330ml bottle in Hamburg. This is not a pilsner despite the labelling - it is more like a Vienna lager with toasty sweet caramel malts and light citrus hops on the nose and tongue. Mild dry finish. Medium bodied. Dark amber appearance with a mostly lasting foamy off-white head. OK.

omhper (20915) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 7, 2003
Bottled. Thanks Yogi_Beera!! Amber colour. Aroma of "Fünf Kräuter" (herbal, medicinal). Sweet, medium bodied and mild with low bitterness. About as far from a pils as you can make a lager. Odd, but quite pleasant.

EithCubes (5215) - 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.

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.

BlackHaddock (4840) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2014
11th Dec 2014, 0.4 litre on tap at it’s source, the Groninger Braukeller, Hamburg. Poured a misty amber golden colour with a white head that gave off some good lacing. Aroma came across as malty and grainy and semi-sweet in nature. The taste followed the same lines with a light sweet lead with a mini caramel feel.
