Moravius (491) - Berlin, GERMANY - SEP 18, 2014
Flasche aus einem REWE-Getränkemarkt in Bamberg. - Goldgelb, klar. - In der Nase krautiger Hopfen (Fenchel) und helle Malzsüße. - Antrunk schlank mit zarter heller Malzsüße und krautig-blumigem Hopfen. Das saftige helle Malz tritt prominenter hervor als bei einem Pilsener üblich; die Hopfenaromen - Kräuter, Gras - sind deutlich ausgeprägt aber etwas grob bzw. stumpf. Mild rezent, schlank und süffig. Im Abgang etwas schroffe, grasige Hopfenherbe. Gut bitterer Nachtrunk. - Aromatisch aber ein klein wenig derb gehopftes Pilsener mit schönen Malzaromen. Nicht schlecht. Laut Etikett wurden nur „Hopfenauszüge“ verwendet - kann das sein?

downender (6290) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2014
Bottle from a REWE in Bamberg. Golden in colour with a slight, white, head and trace of carbonation. A crisp pils, with some fruity sweetness and lengthy, bitter, finish. Good.

TAR (2496) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - AUG 21, 2014
Draft at the brewery in Nov. 2013: Dull and simple nose of hard lemon candy, hay, fennel seed and a hint of alcohol. Subdued carbonation softly prickles. Firmly hoppy and mildly spicy with a pronounced Spalt punch yielding to a slippery fruitiness. Pils malt is somewhat grainy and raspy as it lends a deeply toasted hat accent amid a muted grassy hop twang. Hint of flowers, as well. Finishes soft and maltcentric, with restrained Spalt and some grainy malt. Pretty straightforward to me. Malt is a tad sloppy and doesn’t seem all that skillfully extracted, and the hops aren’t very dynamic or vital. Middle of the road.

Beerhunter111 (7430) - Hasborn, GERMANY - FEB 7, 2014
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein klares goldgelbes Bier mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch hopfig, grasig, leicht metallisch. Geschmack hopfig, grasig, würzig, im Hintergrund leicht metallisch.

Ernest (6221) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 30, 2013
Draft at Honig. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is light to medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, husks), lightly hoppy (herbs, grass), with a light note of egg. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, slighty husky. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Thin, watery, and kinda husky (which gets more and more pronounced as it warms). Otherwise the balance is pretty good and the aroma does have some life in it...but overall it’s just mediocre.

3fourths (8036) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 29, 2013
Draft at the brewery in Tiefenellern. Clear gold with a fine white head. A hoppy, juicy, lemony, sugar cookie and baked cracker Pilsner with respectable cleanliness. As it warms and opens the lemon juiciness becomes stronger and a tart baked bread quality seems to stand out more. Balanced, hoppy, clean malt, cleanly fermented, medium-light body, decent carbonation, some roughness / husks, especially in the back, but overall its enjoyable and seems to be in good shape.

DutchDrebus (4020) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - OCT 7, 2013
50cl from bottle @ Moe’s Sportbar, Bamberg. Clear golden yellow colour with a small to medium sized white head. Smells sweetish, a bit malty, slightly hoppy. Tastes nice: some malts, some hops, quite fresh. Easy to drink, nice carbo.

laiti (5694) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 22, 2013
50 cl bottle @ Timo A. Rated on 18.11.2009
Bright appearance with disappearing head. Aroma is stale with bready malt. Flavour is also stale with bready malt, some grain and hints of grassy hops. Palate has just right amount of CO2. Too bready and feels a bit harsh too.
