skortila (4826) - Baarn, - JUL 21, 2007
Aroma of grassy hops. Clear, yellow coloured with a medium, white head. Taste is a bit sweet, with some bitterness and grass. Bit a dirty dry-metallic palate.

BlackHaddock (4920) - 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.

zacgillbanks (3175) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2015
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 (4395) - 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.

tandembrauer (593) - Stavanger, NORWAY - DEC 3, 2014
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.

massingasetta (409) - München, GERMANY - OCT 13, 2014
Die Farbe ist schon appetitlich bis hin zu schön, auch die Schaumkrone ist etwas porös aber akzeptabel. Einstieg ist frisch und herb zugleich, so muss Pils sein. Dieses Pils hat einen runden Gewürzcharakter und auch eine gute Süffigkeit. Was will man mehr in einem Pils, Dieses Bier überzeugt trotz der weiten Distribution.

Alengrin (3221) - BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2014
Premium lager with cream white, thick, relatively stable foam and bright straw blonde colour with golden hue. Pale malts aroma, clean with a lightly spicy hop touch, bit citrussy. Smooth in the mouth, mineral-like, clean and crisp, pale malt sweetishness, whiff of herbal hop bitterness in the tail. Correctly made but predictable.

vinivini (708) - BELARUS - AUG 16, 2014
A classic German Pilsner with grassy herbal profile. A quality product but nothing special.

Mainuh_man (258) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 29, 2014
0.5L bottle. Pours a clear yellow with a white head. Mild aroma of grass and sweet malt. Really not much flavor initially or in the middle, this gives way to herby hop, as would be expected for a pils Overall, a pretty crappy beer. Just a standard, German pils without much character at all.

stevoj (2869) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 30, 2014
Catch up rating. Had on tap in northern Germany. The color is pale golden yellow, with a one finger head that quickly becomes half finger. Aroma is of malts, a slighty grassy. Nice bitter taste, with a slighty more bitter aftertaste. Medium thickness on the body. Overall, quite good, slighty above your average pilsener.
