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.

Cristal golden color with a white crown of foam. Citrus and herbs on the aroma. Light body with medium carbonation. Bitter taste, dominated by herbs, citrus and grains. Bitter finish as well.

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 (163) - 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

Terminus (3231) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - MAY 12, 2014
Bottle-from the beer of the month club Pours pale yellow hue golden with lots of carbonation and a fizzy white head. nose is mostly cereal, grass and pale malt husks. very husky. flavors exhibit the grains and cereal qualities with a touch of spicy hops. this needs more hops, but its one of the originals of the style. decent and probably better on fresh tap.

UXO (166) - CANADA - MAY 9, 2014
Pours a crystal clear straw yellow with one fat finger of loose head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim and no lacing. Nose is characteristic pilsener, caramel malt and a little grassy hop presence. Taste is equally predictable, sweet malt and slightly floral hops. Mouth feel is light and crisp, with a decent finish. "Das König der biere"? No. Sorry. It’s a good pilsener, but ultimately it’s a pilsener. "Inoffensive" is the key characteristic here, not "interesting".

chicagobears (414) - Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA - APR 25, 2014
Pours a pale straw yellow into Warsinter pils glass. Fresh hay and clean on the nose. Grass and lemon in the flavor. Delicate balance and floral on the finish. All around solid pilsner.

rozsoma (468) - HUNGARY - APR 25, 2014
Egyenpils, fiataloknak, kockázáshoz ajánlott. Túlzott fogyasztása mellékhatással nem jár.

dr.dod (307) - Szeged, HUNGARY - APR 21, 2014
330cl bottle. Sweet odour, big-bodied sticky beer. It has light Co2, silky. In taste there are equilibrium of sweet malt and hoppy bitter. You can feel a very little smoke in there. Nice, complex beer.
