JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 13, 2006
Lightly hazed straw color with a fingers worth of rather dense off-white foam. Mildly citric aromas coupled with a fresh scone scent. LIghtly spritzy on the tongue.Light pale malt are the players in this one with only a touch of acidic and herbal hops to balance the light sweetness. A rather delicate pils. I am assuming this was only made for export as I see no one from europe has rated this one. AToo much citrus for my tastes. I do have to agree with Ernest that this does get better as it warms.

TChrome (1423) - Bedford, Texas, USA - NOV 9, 2005
Bottle 0204: Beer pours very pale gold color with a nice sized modertely retained egg white head. Nice lacing. Aroma is fairly benign, however what is ther is some straw, some malty bread notes, and a dash of hop spiciness. The hops really come through in the flavor and this beer has a nice hop bitterness in the flavor. Some good malt bread flavors make this beer a winner.

BeerandBlues2 (9994) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - AUG 4, 2005
Bottle, 02/04. Pours gold with a frothy rocky white head. Malt (straw, meal) and yeast (horse blanket) aroma with potato notes. Light and bitter malt with yeast flavor. Light bodied and lively carbonation.

shrubber85 (7867) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 19, 2005
Bottle. Creamy malt and moderate hops aroma. Golden yellow color with slight efferverscence and head. Creamy malt equally blended with hops and an interesting sweet apple finish. Nice body. Nice drinkable German pilsener - slightly better than average but not spectacular.

austinpowers (2826) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 15, 2005
I see that this beer is in the 100th percentile by style and I struggle to understand what makes this beer so special. Pretty crisp, but not dry. Lightly sweet and malty with moderate hop bite to be expected for the style. A little maltier than one might expect.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
DarkElf (3035) - La Jolla, California, USA - FEB 21, 2005
(500 ml bottle: $2.75 at Liquid Solutions in Tigard, OR) Sweet and mildly malty, balanced nicely by a lightly bitter and gently spicy hops, there is also a fair amount of corn/grain flavor here. The nose is mostly sweet corn/grain with perhaps just a touch of hops. Nice body for a pilsner. The hops and pronounced carbonation keep the palate clean and lively. Medium yellow in color. The medium size head is very white in color and quickly fades to just a rim, leaving no lacing. This is a good, but not great German pilsner, but would be better if the malt profile had a less pronounced corn flavor.

beerguy101 (5287) - Newark, California, USA - DEC 30, 2004
Light gold color. Small white foamy head. Aroma is malt (grass and grain) a touch of hop spiciness. Medium to light bodied Pilsner. Malts are sweet, bready and a little grassy. Hops are mild, slightly herbal and spicy. Somewhat sweet, yet the beer is balanced by a nice dry finish. Smooth tasting Pilsner. Nice balance throughout. A little surprised by the dry finish, but a nice dry finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - NOV 22, 2004
Pale yellow with a frothy white head. Not a style I prefer but this wasn’t bad. Malt and hops to the nose with touches of spice and floral. Average mouthfeel. Crisp and clean taste. Matly notes. Refreshing drink but not remarkable.

Clear straw appearance, moderate head formation. Malty, grain, lightly spiced aroma. Dry, peppery spice palate, mild malt backbone, finishes with a light crispness.

GermanBrews76 (679) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 5, 2004
crystal clear, very pale body, loose foamy white top. corn and soft pale malt nose accented by a mild floral tone. Grainy, corn. clean and crisp dry floral finish, just enough hop presence. soft and filling in the mouth.
