JoeMcPhee (8210) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 7, 2012
500 ml can. Very pale straw coloured brew with a fast-fading white head. The aroma is a little bit grainy with a distinct touch of DMS. Some lighter straight sulfur notes as well. Low bitterness and hop aroma/flavour. Meh - a pretty standard macroesque pils. Very light-bodied.

BlackHaddock (3183) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2012
Obtained from ’Beers of Europe’, a 500ml tall brown bottle: best before 18 Dec 2011, poured into a German Pilsner glass (three times) during 29 October 2011. Typical lager/pilsner look, light golden, clear, bright and clean: this brew however had a head that tried to stay on each pour. The smell and taste is sweeter than a German Pilsner, hoppy, but not as dry or bitter as its German friends. The hops are floral and aromatic more than bittering: very easy to drink. I like sweeter beers, so this suits me, but I could see a Pilsner fan complaining it isn’t sharp, crisp or dry enough for his tastes. Pleasant and good enough to put up there with the better Lager/Pilsner/Helles style brews.

DanielBrown (3626) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2012
Bottle from Lithuanica store, Birmingham. Smells sweet, like rainbow drops. Colour is very pale gold, even for a pale lager. No head. Taste is pleasantly smooth and malty for a minute, but it does not last through the mouth and the aftertaste is like a phantom cloud of souring cake. Not really brilliant, but not horrible.

yngwie (12683) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle. It pours a clear, golden body and a small, dense, white head. Rather weak aroma with hay, grains and some fruity scents. Soft on the palate, medium bodied and semi-sweet. Pale malts, some hints of cooked vegetables and a touch of both hay and grass in the mouth. Lacking on bitterness all the way. A decent one, nothing more. 111126

Nekronos (3603) - Xalapa, MEXICO - NOV 4, 2011
Nice, refreshing, not so graspy as many pilsners. Nice even if not cold but a little bit tiring after a while, nice foam.
