DrNosha (1678) - 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 (861) - 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 (569) - 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.

superspak (4669) - Michigan, USA - OCT 13, 2015
330 ml bottle into lager glass, best before 7/28/2015. Pours slightly hazy golden straw color with a small dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings down the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of big cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, pepper, and yeast earthiness. Moderate amount of herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of cracker, biscuit, pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Awesome robustness and balance of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Large amount of dryness after the finish. Very clean on lager flavors with zero yeast ester notes present. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly sticky/grainy mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.9%. Overall this is an awesome German pilsner style. All around great robustness and balance of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth, crisp, and clean to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.

hens (736) - Tallinn, Estonia, ESTONIA - SEP 15, 2015
0.5L bottle. Strong euro hop aroma. Yellow color with medium size white foam on top. Sweet, corny, malt is felt strongly. Not the worstest. Flavors are clearly highlighted. Malty aftertaste. Light bitter finish.

TorbenJensen (1457) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2015
Good typical lager aroma of floral hops. Fresh bodied pilsner taste the hops and the balance is in great contrast to each other. Again a light floral nuance of hop bitterness is long and pleasant.

Mooi gouden pils met een mooie witte schuimkraag. Bier is licht bitter en verrassend zacht van smaak.

Pullo @ Alko. Kaatuu lasiin vaaleankullankeltaisena ja kirkkaana, noin kahden sormen paksuisella vaahdolla. Tuoksu on taattua pilsiä: olkea, viljaisuutta ja hunajaista makeutta. Ruohoakin on hennosti joukossa. Maussa on vahvempana hunajainen makeus, hieman taka-alalle jää olkisuus ja viljaisuus. Suutuntuma on alkuun makea, loppupuolella katkerot isekvät jonkin verran, mutta purenta saisi olla napakampi. Tyylissään ihan hyvä tuotos, mutta pilsissä kaipaan napakampaa katkeron puraisua. Tässä se jää vähän vaisuksi.
