jandd1983 (2470) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUL 8, 2014
It poured a golden color with a white head. The aroma was of honey, lemon and malts. The taste was grainy, with malts and grassy bitterness.

Westkyoto77 (501) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 3, 2014
Can to glass. Heady aromas of wet straw and wheat. Off-gold with decent, lasting head. Fine carbonation. Quite bitter and dry, with a good bit of depth. Not exactly the king if pilsners, but not awful either.

SetauketBrewer (37) - New York, USA - JUN 18, 2014
Very light golden pour, appears almost watery. Strong pilsner malt aroma of hay with an undertone of fruit. Light flavor of cracker. No noticeable hops. A little watery on the mouth feel.

imdownthepub (9954) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2014
Bottled, 500ml at Zum Anker, Rudenheim am Rhein, Hesse. Pale gold with white head. Dryish, malty but thin beer, light on the palate, little follow through flavour wise. Mostly bland, highly carbonated.

Aroma is hay, barnyard, corn, mild skunk. Head dissipates quickly after pour. Tastes like someone dropped a handful of nickels into a glass of water. Not repulsive, but wow is this watery.

mR_fr0g (2413) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2014
Bamberg jolly day 3 26/01/2014. Bottle shared on the train. Aroma is a bit of buttery diacetyl and floral hop and some lemon. Flavour is compsed of crisp pils grain,grassy hop and some metal in the finish. Yelow, coloured pour fine white head. Palate is semi-slick, light diacetyl.

Steverus0 (143) - Shreveport, Louisiana, USA - MAY 14, 2014
All the bitter backbone of a pils with less of the redeeming clean mouthfeel. Aroma is light and a bit grassy, taste is apparently light on the grains and heavy (but not enough to appeal to the true hopheads) on the hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
