yngwie (16227) - Kristiansand, - JUN 12, 2010
Bottle. It’s a clear, a bit pale golden beer with a finger-thick white head sitting on top. Quite weak nose, fruity and malty. The flavor is on the sweet side, grainy and fruity and with a faint sickingly note. A little bitterness too, and especially in the finish it’s not enough of it. Medium body, quite dry. A decent beer, but it lacks on quenching qualities. 100101

Dark for a pilsner, not much head, maybe one finger. Strong malt backbone, heavy on the palate for a lager and little taste of hops but the moreish malty thickness of the beer is what holds this up. Starts off uninspiring but thick malt backbone grows on you. Nice beer.

SinH4 (2066) - Garching, GERMANY - MAR 18, 2016
Clear golden color with white head. Aroma is straw, sweet malts, grassy hops. Taste is sweet, a bit earthy, straw, weak finish. Crisp carbonation. A bit pointless, but not horrible.

UPDATED: FEB 29, 2016 0,5l bottle from Beers of Europe. Very pale golden colour, small frothy white head. Some malts and hops in the aroma but also a bit sour, cardboardy. Malt and hops flavour but rather weak, nice but could have been better.

BlackHaddock (5636) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2015
500ml bottle: BBD 9th July. Poured into an old Schlossbrau Pils stemmed glass (three times). This beer is an old friend. I used to buy packs of 10 x 33cl stumpy bottles when I lived in Germany: bright yellow carrying boxes known as Herfy Handbags by all the Royal Air Force lads back then. Anyway back to today: mown the lawn, reward this! Pours the regular clean golden yellow you’d expect from a Lager/Pilsner, the white head hung around though, so makes a change, as they normally fade swiftly on this style of beer in my opinion. Dry compared to most German Pilsners but with the same crispness and cleanliness you’ll get from them all. Not a big aromatic or flavoursome beer, just refreshing and thirst quenching. No serious sense provoking subtleties or hidden quirks but a solid, no nonsense beer.

Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. Very pale straw coloured with a thin white head and gentle carbonation. It has a light toffee and grassy flavour, malty notes and a sweet fruity finish.

A bit malty aroma bitter taste with a bit of malts, bit not much more. Really regular pils with no attitude.

Bamsen78 (4768) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 10, 2015
On tap @ Zum Kachelofen, Hahnenklee. Pours clear golden with rocky but stable white head. Clear aroma of yeast and malt, with hoppy notes. Bitter, hoppy flavour with notes of yeast and malt and rather persistent touches of metal. Estery aftertaste with bitter and cardboardlike hints. Low carbonation. Rather watery. Nothing to write home about.

Can at home, present from my mates Hardy and Elsa. Pours yellow, clear, with a thick head. Aroma of some grass and hay, bready. Sweet taste -- too sweet for me. Finish has some bitterness. Taste does not last very long, this is a pretty boring, flat beer.
