TheJester (1912) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2006
500 mL can. Yellow with a touch of orange. Thin head. Aroma of grasses with a bit of malt. Taste is unobtrusive. Sweet, grasses, not as much cereal (corn?) as some pilseners. Not much bitterness. Fairly thin. Could be worse.

Dorqui (2110) - Brescia, ITALY - SEP 12, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2007 Bottled 0,50L. Compact head of medium persistence. Golden shining color, with good and long-lasting fizz. Herbaceous and fresh aroma with malty and grassy notes. Lightly prickly taste, rather bitter and with good malty and cereals notes. Not much alcoholic end, bitter and of medium duration. Enough balanced.

workerbee (5) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 5, 2006 does not count
I appreciated the simplicity of this beverage. It was delicious, yet uncomplicated. I wanted more aroma yet had enough. Confused, I drank more. It had a dry after taste with a hit of caramel... or cinnamon... no. Definitely caramel.

bluevegie (3057) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 4, 2006
Clear golden body with a good size fluffy white head. Grainy aroma, soft full carbonation. Pleasing bitterness, grain at the front with some hops on the finish. I have gone off pilseners of late but this one could bring me back soon.

ha1ag (733) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - SEP 2, 2006
Not really my taste, tried frm bottle, from tap, the puching bitterness and the watery mouthfeel can’t be taken away.

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - AUG 16, 2006
A great pils, nice bitterness, lots of carbonation, nice drinking brew, fuller body than most pils, some grain, but very nice.

mnurda (1140) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 14, 2006
In a can all the way from Kenora, ON courtesy of my good pal Piscator (again). Nice for a Pils, not quite as zippy as Urquell, but very enjoyable.

D (577) - Gdynia, POLAND - AUG 10, 2006
Another great German pilsener - grainy, hoppy, full bodied. Dry end, reasonable carbonation - definitely recommended among pils.

DruncanVeasey (7246) - NUNEATON, Top 22, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2006 Bright pale gold, crystal pils with some sweet honeyish notes at the front, and a pleasing bitterness/ breadiness at the end. Not a bad pils at all. Frosted mugs aplenty beside the pool in Corfu.
