vinivini (385) - BELARUS - AUG 15, 2014
I used to drink this some time ago. Golden colour, tall fluffy head. Aroma of grain, hay, grass. Medium body. Sweet & bitter sides of taste. Soft hoppy finish. Nicely balanced. One of better Pilsners.

No long retention and light lacing. Smells of sweet bread, lemon and grain. Tastes of lemon, sweet grain and straw. Dry, bitter aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pumpkinhead2 (345) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 30, 2014
Bière jaune aux reflets verdâtres, pas voilée, mais pas parfaitement limpide non plus, effervescence moyenne-faible, et surmontée d’un mince col blanc, mais tout de même assez dense, collant et persistant. Arômes de malt pâle, grain, léger sucre brut, léger houblon végétal. Nez d’un intérêt très faible, intensité et complexité déficientes. En bouche, pétillement moyen sur la langue, breuvage assez mousseux, onctuosité intéressante au palais, belle rondeur. Au goût, malt pâle et grain, léger sucre brut, houblon herbacé et aromatique, on décèle de subtiles notes de menthe. Amertume bien sentie en finale, mais qui reste somme toute plutôt légère. Plus intéressante et intense en bouche qu’au nez, mais ça reste largement de le créneau de la bière «grand public». Plutôt décevante sur le plan de la dégustation.

Foffern (1207) - Bodø, NORWAY - JUL 25, 2014
On tap at pub in Berlin. Pours a clear straw colour with a medium, whipped eggwhite-like head. The aroma is filled with pale malt, hay and some sweet corn. The flavour is similar but light with additional tones of hops and some metal, and is a little sweet. Has a light and watery mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A malty but careful pilsener.

Geiserich (3382) - Linz, AUSTRIA - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle: Grainy, corny aroma, light bitterness. Golden color, white head. Flavor is malty/grainy, grassy hops. Light to medium hop bitterness, grass but mainly bitter hops. Weak.

smells vaguely like honeycomb, pale gold with no head quite a harsh bitter taste with a sweet aftertaste and quite fizzy. really quite horrible.
