oh6gdx (25453) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 3, 2009
Bottled (thanks DerDoppelbock). Bottle drank under the stairs with fonefan & co in 2007 after the weekend of spontaneous fermentation. Yellow colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is salty, harsh malts and some hops. Flavour is sweet malts as well as some slight sweetish and grassy hoppy notes. Smooth.

kappldav123 (5918) - GERMANY - DEC 28, 2008
The bottle looks good, the beer in the glass also. Starts mild, modest spicy, nice hoppy notes, not too intense. Well balanced, round finish, modest wheaty. Really good pils.

yespr (40811) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 28, 2008
33 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden yellow with a small white head. Mild dry malty and light bittering hops coming through in the aroma. Light sweet malty flavoured with a light caramel note and a delicate bitterness. Crisp bitter and malty finish. Good.

Quinten (1060) - zaandam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 13, 2008
At the drinkgut in Kerpen Germany, golden, medium lasting head, nice grain-hopbitter balance, like a pilsener most be.

SilkTork (5557) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2008
330ml bottle from Shropshire. Vintage 1990. Faint chocolate notes. Indian tea with a soft bitterness spreading out from the centre of the tongue - quite old and dusty. Good body, with a calm carbonation. Hints of toffee among the bitterness. A pleasing beer.

larsga (7307) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 14, 2008
Big coarseish offwhite shiny head. Yellow body. Very little aroma. Sweetish grassy spicy taste with grainy notes. Dry chalky grassy aftertaste with lemony notes. A bit watery. Lacking in body. Charmless, boring. No obvious flaws. (0.3l draft at Hotell Gosequell, Goslar.)

FatPhil (14021) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 5, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2008 330ml bottle (Merisali, Naantali)
Pale straw, brief white head. Dusty hops aroma. Plain light bready and weetabix taste. Hops not very sophisticated, clearly extract not whole hops. OK carbonation, but thin and disappointing, even on a hot day.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2007
Bottled. A pale gold coloured beer with no head. The aroma is slightly sweet with minimal hop levels. The taste has some grassy hops with some sweet malts. Not bad.

Pumpauf (28) - Kirkholm, Juelsminde, DENMARK - NOV 30, 2007
This is a typical example, what happens, when controling and marketing are brewing beer. For a pilsener type it is not hoppy enough. The overall taste is just lager-like.
