Drake (8550) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAR 4, 2010
500 mL bottle from Vintage Cellar in Blacksburg, VA. Pours a slightly hazy pale yellow color with a large frothy, creamy head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of sweet grainy malts with a faintly grassy finish. Taste is grassy, floral hops with pale malts, biscuit notes and apple. Medium bodied.

keidjxz (183) - Fullerton, California, USA - JAN 9, 2010
Bottle. Pours clear piss yellow with a minimal head that leaves a bit of lacing. Aroma is cereal, grass, spruce, and earthy. Lightly sweet and fairly sour with a bit of bitterness with the finish.

GG (2039) - NorCal, California, USA - NOV 4, 2009
The lack of any apparent hop character, weak malts and nothing going on in the aroma really kept this beer from being enjoyed. Light sweetness, refreshing on the palate, but still watery. Just pretty blah.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 1, 2009
Bottle 50 cl. Clear yellow with a white head. Clean, malty nose. Medium body, sweet malts with a vague, underlying tartness. Dry and hoppy finish. 100709

kappldav123 (4971) - GERMANY - AUG 8, 2009
The bottle looks good, the beer in the glass also. Starts quite hoppy and fresh, not too dry. Notes of grass or hay, finish a bit spicy, still quite hoppy. Well balanced, very drinkable. Good beer!

yespr (31178) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUL 24, 2009
50 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden yellow with a small white head. Grassy and crisp hoppy aroma. Crisp hops flavoured with a mild sweet malt base. Bitter and crisp hoppy flavoured finish.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 11/20
obguthr (3833) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUL 23, 2009
Hay aroma dotted with raisins. Shimmering light golden, with a thick snow white head. Grassy hay, lemon, and light barley flavor. Cloying hints of blackberry ruin an otherwise decent pilsner. Harsh mouthfeel and overly carbonated. Lemon grass finish. With the right pour, this wasn’t half bad.

2.4
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 9/20
Ungstrup (29287) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 10, 2009
Bottled. A light yellow beer with a huge yellowish head. The aroma has notes of sweet malt and hay. The flavor is sweet with notes of hay and citrus as well as lighter notes of malt, bread, and cardboard, leading to a dry bitter finish where the note of hay lingers. The body is light.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
3fourths (8029) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 21, 2009
500ml bottle. Clear pour. Medium soft nose of pils malt - doughy and cracker-like - very clean smelling with a faint garlic-like hop crispness. Medium body, drops off somewhat in the finish - texture is somewhat fizzy up front, more oily across the back. Simple, clean, refreshing, slightly sweet pils malt and faint hop bitterness - crisp, quiet, simple. It works.
