Schooner on tap @ Burger and beer bar, Richmond. Clear amber beer, small solid head. Grainy nose. Fizzy, light body. Sour grainy finish. Some random sweetness. Nothing special but drinkable.

harrisoni (17287) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2016
Bottle from Terre de Boissons Calais and drunk at home. Clear gold lasting white head. A little sweet. Odd to be honest. Not much of a pilsner. OK, no bad or off flavours. Certainly not like a macro lager. Some lemon, some sweet malt. It’s ok.

Pyobon (1300) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 15, 2015
(Bottle) Clear pale gold with slight loose white head. Not a great aroma - grain and cardboard notes with vegetable hints. Light body, moderate fizzy carbonation. Light malty with some pleasant fruity notes at start. Falls rather flat in mid palate and is followed by a somewhat harsh bitterness. Not to my taste.

Easy going pilsner, not hoppy enough to be really "good". Sessional type of beer, I could do a few of these quite easily.

Bottle. Pours a dark gold colour with a thin white head, plenty of carbonation, light malt aroma, taste is light and on the sweet side, with a thin sweet finish.

monoroc (49) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - OCT 28, 2014
Pours yellow, golden color with a small head. A bit floral and sweet nose, crisp taste with a nice, medium bitter finish. Perfect carbonation. Refreshing, but missing the extra hop kick of a pilsner. Nevertheless good.

mattyhennessy (376) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - OCT 8, 2014
Pours pale yellow with a small white head that fades quickly. Subtle aromas of crisp malt with some spice and straw-like notes. Flavour is quite clean and crisp but not as dry as most pilsners. There’s a subtle honey and buttery flavour. Low bitterness. Drinkable and enjoyable during warm weather, but nothing memorable.

Tap - Pours golden with small white head. Aroma was dominated my bread and cereal malt. Taste was overly metallic, some grassy hop. Palate a bit light on.

It pours bright yellow, immediately diminishing head though it retains some fizz. There’s a slight honey aroma but really not much there, taste is equally uninteresting.

Muggus69 (2119) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - NOV 22, 2013
330ml bb 220314 Pale gold body with slightest haze. Bit of wispy lace hangs around. Mild aroma; husky cereal malts, bready yeast, faint hop citrus and diacetyl buttery character. Low carbonation, nice slickness adds extra weight to a medium body. Pilsner malts continue on the body, finishes with quite a low bitterness, subtle hop and yeasty character lingering. An ok drop, somewhat flawed.
