harrymel (1448) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 16, 2013
Best by 21DEC12 Pours a toasted straw with loose, white foam and lots of bubbles in the glass (dirty glass?). Anywho, the effect is pretty. Smells of sweet grain and a hint of noble hops. Classic and pleasant. Lovely pils with good grain and sweet corn hints followed with a bit of bitter subtlety. Thin with moderate carb and a semi dry finish. Good beer. Serving type: can 03-10-2012

DwarfeD (686) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - DEC 15, 2013
33cl draught in Düsseldorf. Clear golden with a medium white head. Light to medium body with moderate to high carbonation. A bitter pilsner. Not my kind of beer.

foxo82 (647) - Tamworth (via Leicester), Staffordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2013
On tap at The Malt Cross, Nottingham. Bland, fizzy pilsener with watery grain taste and hardly anything lasting in the finish. Not good.

77ships (3313) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - DEC 9, 2013
Sampled draft @ Dom im Stapelhaus. Completely clear pale golden with a white head. Nose is sweet grains, white sugar, faint metals & dash lemon, nose is pretty weak overall. Tastes is sweet, grains, metallic, touch mineral, sweet sugar, light malt & grassy hops. Totally clean as in every part of this feels processed to death. Industrial but actually enjoyable, odd but agreeable.

Unde (288) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 25, 2013
Clear golden beer with fluffy head on top. Aroma has sweet honey with malts but really unpleasant aroma that is really close to urea. Taste has sweet honey and at the end some grassy hop flavors. Light body and carboantion.

Can bought at LIDL in Bratislava/Slovakia. At first I thought this was gonna be a blah bad beer so I bought it just for out of curiosity, I do not remember whether I have had I anytime in the past. I used to go to Germany many times in my life several years ago. It is a typical German eurolager. Head vanished in no time, typical sweet malty aroma and taste. However a surprisingly bitter finish I did not expect from this pilsener style beer at all! Overall this eurobeer pilsener style is not that bad as I first thought regarding its category! A nice thirst killer after sport!
