mrjez (380) - Osaka, JAPAN - DEC 18, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2016 Bottle. L: poured in a Pilsner flute it showcases great carbonation in a clear straw body, a finger of white fluffy head, nice lacing. S: a full bready malt aroma, deep and rich. Perhaps a little one-dimensional. T: deliciously full-flavoured malt, bread and biscuit with a light citrus tang or gentle spice. F: superb feel, spritzy start that rounds off nicely into a full malt with a clean dry end. O: a great no frills German pils, one of my old faves that never disappoints.

OldMrCrow (2339) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 4, 2015
Large can.

Yellow pour, white head, modest carbonation. A bit sweet, a bit cardboardy, not really the fresh grassy hop snap one would be looking for. Mediocre.

Leighton (17802) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2015
Bottle shared on the train from Nuremberg to Freising during day 3 of the Bamberg Jolly of January 2015. Pours perfectly clear pale yellow with a frothy, white head. Nice and drinkable, with sugary pale cereal, biscuits, mellow bitter straw. Light bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish, simple, with lightly toasted cereal, hay. Nice one.

cervmagpt (622) - PORTUGAL - NOV 13, 2015
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 5D). Bottle 33 cl - Batch 07:01. AROMA: medium-low grainy-sweet aroma with a faint herbal hop presence on the background. APPEARANCE: straw color and translucent. small moussy white head with poor retention. TASTE: moderate grainy-sweet flavour with slight herbal hop notes. medium bitterness and a semi-dry and bitter aftertaste. PALATE: medium-light body with moderate-low carbonation. OVERALL: an average comercial german pils with less hop intensity.

Salwal (302) - GERMANY - OCT 31, 2015
Quite bitter clear golden Tv pilsener from Duisburg. Ordinary straw or grass notes. Yeasty taste and above mentioned. For me the stereotype of a german Television beer...

Dermi (1074) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 30, 2015
33 cl, bottled. BB 23.06.2016. Pours clear gold with a decent white head. Pleasant bubbles. Aroma: Malt, grains. Taste: Medium sweet, pleasant notable bitterness. Grains in flavour with some notes of grass. Palate: Near medium body, pleasantly dry. Average carbonation. Quite typical German pilsner. Clean, I like it.

DrNosha (1476) - Baden Württemberg, GERMANY - OCT 28, 2015
Flasche und Fass. Goldgelb, schöner Schaum. Das wars dann aber auch schon mit Positivem. Metallischer herber Geruch. Wenig aromatischer herber Geschmack. Kein gutes Bier.

MBlessing (755) - Württemberg, GERMANY - OCT 28, 2015
Vom Fass aus der Flasche Hell- bis goldgelb schwacher Schaum, Geruch leicht malzig, Geschmack flach wenig herb leicht süßlich, warum das "KöPi" im Pott so beliebt is is mir ein Rätsel

LazyPyro (436) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2015
500ml bottle. Clear pale golden colour, thin creamy long-lasting white head that. Grassy, hoppy aroma with some malts, sweetish flavour. A dry and rather bitter finish.
