Westkyoto77 (623) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 28, 2013
Don’t usually drink a lot of pilsner, but this was pretty good after a long summers’ day. Light gold in colour, snow-white head. Silky body, slightly sour and grassy. Average carbonation. Went down a treat.

Rangi (670) - NEW ZEALAND - FEB 16, 2013
An average pilsner. Nice clear pale colour. Crisp and slightly bitter. Nothing really to write home about other than it tastes how it should taste for a pilsner and would hit the spot when your thirsty.

mkel07 (5226) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 19, 2013
330ml bottle from Slow Beer. Clean and bright golden amber colour with a low Evelyn white head. Sweet fruity aromas with some pineapple in there. Strong crisp flavour that sits in the mouth well.

Bif (2069) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 6, 2012
Bottle- Pours a light golden color with a nice thick head that fades to some lacing. Mild aroma of fruit, bit of malt sweetness and a hint of grain. Taste as a bit of citrus with some malt sweetness and grain. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Light body, mild crispness, smooth and a bit refreshing. Fairly generic for the style. Easy drinking beer, good for a few.

maneliquor (3484) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 30, 2012
Bottle from Mane Liquor. As the poster below said, it’s a very safe beer. Light citrus and grassy tones. Very easy going without being bad at all. Solid introductory craft

Stew41 (1942) - Phuket, THAILAND - FEB 26, 2012
These guys are really making safe bets with respect to styles but in the main they are good enough if not terribly exciting. Dry, grassy hops, smart fizz levels, good persistence although a small touch of dumb adjunct-like sweetness takes the shine off. Representative of the style.

davidm (2069) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 26, 2011
On tap at Mrs Parma’s. Not very interesting. Aromas of flowers, leaves, and some band-aid. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness, and short-lived. Palate is oily, and medium bodied. Yellow, bubbly, with a frothy head.
