MrRomero (1975) - Nolanville, USA - NOV 16, 2003
Bottle, Eurostar Station, London. Mine was 5.2% ABV. Has a roasted malt flavor resembling coffee. Reminds me of Deibels Plato 13(?). Very good.

wastl (130) - GERMANY - DEC 2, 2007
Bottle. Golden colour, average carbonation. Less bitter than one might expect from a german pils from the high north. Notes of malt and much more bitter in the end than in the beginning. Good Pils.

caplinlee (37) - KAZAKHSTAN - JUL 4, 2013
Bought from a supermarket in Kazakhstan. A Carlsberg Kazakhstan beer. ABV of 4.7%. This lager has a lot of criticism judging by other reviews but to be fair I am a fan. I actually quite enjoyed it. It was very refreshing and found it to be a decent pilsener although it must be said that living in Kazakhstan and sampling beers from Kazakhstan it hasn’t had to compete against much. So on the grand scale of things it’s probably nothing special but in the Kazakh market this is a winner.

johndoughty (3979) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2002
Probably the first German lager that many people in Britain tried. As such its a good introduction before moving on to the more tasty one’s. Nevertheless it has a pleasant pale appearance and a light refreshing taste. Quite unique in its taste yet easy to knock -not to be turned down on a warm summers day.

Martinus (2817) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 5, 2014
Clear warm golden colour, firm white head. Malty aroma, hay. Light bitter flavour, very grassy. Grassy bitter finish. Very fresh, better than expected.
(from draught, shared with Johan & Rene @ Christopher Brauhaus / Restaurant)

MrHangover (2456) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 5, 2014
Draft. Pours a clear golden beer with a big white head on top. Aroma is grassy, hoppy and has some faint malty touches. Flavor is medium bitter, full bodied and has a long bitter aftertaste. Nice beer, decent carbo.

Douberd (2288) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUN 26, 2014
Bottle 500ml at home, poured into a lager glass. ABV 4.8% Clear golden yellow colour on the body with a small soapy white head on top. Average retention, light lacing left on the glass. Intense activity in it. Smells fresh, grass, noble hops. Tastes good too, although there are smoe light metal notes in it. Grass, some malts, nice bitterness with long duration. Medium thin body, average carbonation. Overall quite good.
