BlackHaddock (4150) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2014
Tall 500ml bottle: BBD 10/15. Drank in my Hamburg hotel room in 12/14. Light, bright and clear golden body, the head a fast departing white blanket. Hop bite to the brew, with a malty stabilizer in the flavouring. Bog standard German Pilsner really, could have been any of many.

Calisky (1145) - ALSACE, FRANCE - DEC 15, 2014
couleur dorée, petit col blanc. Nez leger malt doux. Gout malté avec bonne amertume de houblon frais et un peu herbeux. Bon corps. Fin assez sèche mais bonne amertume. Pas trop mal

tandembrauer (281) - Stavanger, NORWAY - DEC 4, 2014
Bottle at home, present from my mate Hardy. Pours light yellow, small - disappearing - head. Some aroma of grass and hay, sweat. Extremely thin bodied, some bitter finish. Watery aftertaste. One of the most boring beers I have tasted so far. If this is the premium pilsener, I don’t want to taste the "ordinary" one ;-)

Zarkam (466) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 19, 2014
470ml somewhat cool-looking bottle from a store at Torfyanovka, Russia, brewed at Baltika st. Petersburg and labelled as Holsten Premium, but I’ll rate it here as the abv matches and I doubt there is much difference to warrant a new entry. Clear sparkling yellow colour, small fizzy white mostly vanishing head, small amount of lacing. Moderately malty aroma of grain and hay with light to moderate grassy hops. Taste is initially lightly sweet and acidic, turning into a lightly bitter but a bit longer than usual cheap lagers finish. Light to medium body, slick mouthfeel, average carbonation. Nowhere near amazing but among the better basic lagers on the Russian market.

imdownthepub (10661) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2014
Bottled, 500ml, not sure where it was obtained. Yellow gold with fizzed white head. Lightly roasted cereal malts up front, a light metallic hint, some damp cardboard, CO2 notes. On the close there is a herby, slightly grassy hop note. It is what it is.

rosenbergh (7423) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 1, 2014
500 ml can. (Penny Markt) Mainz, Germany.
Enjoyed from a can in a park by the Rhine river... Metal, malt and mild grass in the aroma. Grassy hoppy and malty flavour. Easy-to-drink. Not the worst.

ruigo (1270) - PORTUGAL - SEP 23, 2014
50cl bottle. Clear golden colour with a generous white head. Grain, malty and floral aroma. Average carbonation and light body. Taste is light bitter and light sweet. Overall, a normal pilsener.

Inbreak (2432) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - AUG 16, 2014
01.08.2014, 0,33l bottle @ Sakura Sushi, Hamburg:
Nice creamy longlasting head, light straw colored. Aroma is slightly grainy, light malts, hay, weeds, nuts, caramel, hints of dried grain. Taste is slightly dry grainy, hay, light malts, weeds, grain, hints of nuts and caramel. Medium bitterness, slightly dry mouthfeel. Fair enough.

Senka (584) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 31, 2014
On tap and bottled in Germany. Fresh pilsener. Simple beer that you enjoy on a summer stroll . Light and refreshing. Simple as most of the entry level pilseners. Not a bad beer. I actually miss it sometimes.

StueyD (1239) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2014
A golden yellow coloured beer with a frothy but weak white head. A potent hop aroma, on opening the bottle, this soon calms to a mild fruit aroma plus a hint of malt. Dry mouthfeel. A tart hop flavour is matched by a dry biscuity malt flavour, both lasting into a lingering finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
