troopie (2291) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - DEC 25, 2011
Bottle. Lovely yellow pour with medium white head. Aroma was mediciney and then the hop broke through. Oily mouthfeel that went away and left a rather pleasing flavour. Lekker finish.

12HundredBaud (262) - Sausalito, California, USA - AUG 25, 2011
33cl. bottle from a local beer retailer. It pours a not entirely clear yellow-light golden liquid with a lowz-medium white head that lasts thinly throughout the beer and leaves a little lacing. The aroma is light but good enough: very well balanced graininess with hoppy hints of straw, hay and citron. Quite natural smelling, with distant notes of apple. It tastes also nicely balanced, with a medium sweetness and bitterness. Apples are now more notorious. In the mouth it feels a little above the average in carbonation, smooth and oily, with a medium body and a long dry mild bitter finish, with a nice aftertaste of citron, straw, a little sweet malty touch and herbal hops. Presentation is pretty good, very german-like, for a nicely balanced and well done brew that tastes very natural.

maledictum (646) - Pyongyang, NORTH KOREA - AUG 14, 2011
Clear straw appearance, moderate head formation. Malty, grain, lightly spiced aroma. Dry, peppery spice palate, mild malt backbone, finishes with a light crispness.

brokensail (11552) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 24, 2011
A: The beer pours a clear straw color with a couple fingers of white head. S: A nice sweetness to the nose with lots of cracker and bready malts. There is a light hoppiness to the nose with plenty of floral and spicy characteristics. A bit of yeast and a light lager yeast aroma, too. T: Probably a bit better in terms of the flavor. A slight sweet apple note followed by lots if yeast and cracker malts, along with the bread and biscuit notes. Just a hint of hop bitterness and a nice floral flavor. M: Light to medium in body with a medium carbonation. O: A really nice crisp pils. Very easy to drink and easy to enjoy on a warm evening.

thegreenrooster (3301) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - APR 30, 2011
Pour is a cloudy yellow with a average white head. Aroma is grassy hops and a decent clean malt. Flavor is more of the same. Starts out with some german hops then comes a nice biscuit dry malt. Decent pils.

crossovert (7898) - Illinois, USA - MAR 16, 2011
I think i have an old bottle, it pours a dull gold, smell of pear and vanilla, taste of oxidized fruit and a slight bitterness.

Nickls (1886) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 28, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear light yellow gold color with a very thin very white head. Savory and minerally hops in the aroma, with a firm malt layer. Flavor is grassy with mineral hops and very clean, with a crackery maltiness. Thinner with bubbly carbonation, but not as dry as others. Really easy drinking, and lucky to get a fresh bottle. Very classic and tasty.

MoritzF (8590) - Bochum, GERMANY - OCT 18, 2010
(bottle) Clear, pale golden colour with a medium-sized foamy white head. Moderately malty aroma with notes of sweetened ice-tea, a subtle citrus-fruity touch and just a whiff of herbal hops. Sweet-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a calm carbonation. Pale malty taste with subtle citric and herbal notes; almost dry, slightly sweet malty and shy hop bitter finish. Drinkable but not completely convincing. 17.X.10

cardofab (229) - Teramo- ITALY, ITALY - JUL 26, 2010
Pils equilibrata e godibile. Al naso è malto dolce granuloso con un finale vagamente erboso. Il gusto è erbaceo, lievemente luppolata,. Finale amarognolo. Ottima bevibilità.
