Bottle from BevMo. Golden color with a large white head. Aroma of pale malt and noble hop. Near medium body with coarse carbonation. Flavor is noble hop over pale malt. Finish is mildly bitter. It’s good, and seems true to the style.

luvcasks (178) - USA - JUL 21, 2008
Euro style bottle at Bev Mo - 18 July 2008 - Pours a pale yellow gold with just a touch of haze Ivory white head with nice lacing down the sides of the glasses. Smells like fresh hay, lemony, slight sweet malt and a clean noble hop aroma Being a medium light bodies pils - nice blend of flavors from cracker like malt to a slightly tart, floral and spicy hop notes. The finish is dry and refreshing with a just little long lingering big bitterness Overall: A good pils - seems like a recent availability in the "Mega" Bev Mo in CA - I should say quite enjoyable. I would think a fresh sample would be more enjoyable some of the hop qualities would be more expressive - Cheers !

imdownthepub (11738) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2008
On tap at Keesmann Brewpub, Bamberg. Pale yellow gold with white head. Lowly flavoured Pils, thin, light malt with a hint of lemon hop, but in general quite underwhelming.

beerguy101 (5338) - Newark, California, USA - JUL 9, 2008
This pilsner pours a light gold color from a 50cl bottle. Small sized white foamy head with decent retention. The aroma is grassy and hoppy. A medium to light bodied pilsner. The malts are grassy and with a touch of cereal. The hops are spicy and floral. Crisp and clean. Light and refreshing. Decent pilsner. There is a touch of a vitamin like taste at the finish. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is crisp and clean. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Maria (10190) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2008
Golden with an OK head. The aroma has notes of straw, malt and flower. The flavour has a light bitterness, notes of malt, fruit, flower and it ends on a slightly dry, citrussy-bitter note. It’s a very refreshing pilsner.

3fourths (8702) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 5, 2008
Draught at Brauerei Keesmann in Bamberg. Light lemon yellow colored body with a white head. Nose if light malthouse wort and very light and dusty yeast. Very mild... taste is wet, cold, and then crisp, with some more of this wort flavor up front and then more drying and hoppy in the finish, crisp even, greenish hops. Not bad.

koentje67 (8) - BELGIUM - APR 10, 2008 does not count
Draught in Bamberg, the German beer walhalla! One of the better German Pilsners. Sparklingly refreshing in taste. Very nice hoppy taste and finish, no overpowering alcohol. Light and becoming.

Ernest (6841) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 15, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2013 Bottle (BB March 2014). Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is clear light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs), with a hint of DMS. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Still decent five years later...bright hops and good balance. Could be a bit cleaner and more vibrant, but this is a refreshingly solid, quaffable pils.
