freretoc (974) - Besançon, FRANCE - MAR 8, 2015
Bue en bouteille de 50cl à la maison, couleur blonde, mouss emoyenne et effervescence très forte, une pière avec une attaque sur le malt et le pain blanc assez raffraichissante.

Baalzevuv (59) - Essen, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - FEB 3, 2015
Barwa jasnożółta, słomkowa, lekko zmętniona. Brakuje jej jednak pełni, zdaje się wodnista. Piana uboga, śnieżnobiała, drobnopęcherzykowa, utrzymuje się cienka koronka. Nawet nieźle oblepia szkło. Aromat cieniutki, czuć te chmiele, ale słabo. W smaku lekko chlebowe, dość wyraźna goryczka. Na języku ściągające, wysycenie średnio-wysokie. Gorycz lekko zalega.

massingasetta (351) - München, GERMANY - JAN 26, 2015
Ein appetitliches Bier das eine feine Schaumkrone und typischen Pilsgeruch aufweist. Der Einstieg ist erfrischend, perlig und rund. Körper und Abgang sind zwar ansprechend aber sehr normiert und brav. Man ist fast geneigt dieses Bier als 0815 Pils zu bezeichnen. Fazit: Braves Nord-Pils.

Pours a clear straw yellow color. Aroma and taste are light malts, grassy, and a mild bitter finish.

rikstar (1107) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 28, 2014
0,33l fles van de edeka in Binz. Goudgeel met een snel slinkende kraag. Geur en smaak zijn fris hoppig met een grassig karakter. Afdronk is netjes voor een pils. Niks wereldschokkends maar wel een redelijk pils.

BlackHaddock (4435) - 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 (1333) - 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 (400) - 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 (516) - 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 (10974) - 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.
