UPDATED: NOV 21, 2006 All the rage around these parts it seems. Vintage Cellars have this on special but I do recall it being available in some pubs on tap a long time ago. I think there should be a generic category called Euro pils because this style proliferates. As a beer it is on par with some of the better and more accessible beers of its ilk, and as such is not a bad representative. Pale hue with creamy head, tick. Grassy aroma with a slight hop whiff, tick. Citric and grassy finish with reasonable mouthfeel, tick. Ya, is gutt, but certainly not a regal brew.

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 14, 2006
Clear golden with a nice white head. Light straw and grainy malt in the aroma. Nice balanced body, with a moderate to heavy bitterness. Flavours of clean grassy hops and light toasty malt. Bitter, slightly harsh finish.

bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 11, 2006
In the glass this didn’t really have too much appeal. Looked fairly standard, with its pale golden body, medium sized bubbles and short lasting head. And the aroma gave some floral notes initially followed by doughy malt. However, on tasting it improved a lot, with the dry flavour carrying a nice bitterness, along with some crisp lemon and a grassy hoppiness in the finish. A decent imported lager - it’s good to see one around these parts for once.

eczematic (1320) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - OCT 13, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2007 Slightly rounder and more floral than most German pilseners, but still very light and dry. Tettnang/Saaz mixture? Hops are mellow and floral rather than spicy or grassy. Reasonably bitter finish that is soft and not metallic like hop-extract pilseners. Lacks malt, definition. But it’s clean, dry and drinkable. A very competently brewed pilsener of modest ambition. rer8: yawn

edwardfricker (9) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 10, 2006 does not count
I loved smelling this bottle before pouring it. The aroma isn’t strong but its great, the strong bitterness in the finish of this beer is its only strength - however its worth drinking for that alone. Its not a flowery hops flavour like many pilseners but a very dry bitterness that lingers for a long time. Reminded me of a stronger and cleaner version of the bitterness in Aussie lagers.

larsga (6372) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 9, 2006
Small white head quickly disappears entirely, leaving just an unattractive film. Very pale yellow body with a little carbonation. Faint, thin, mealy, apple-ish aroma with rubbery notes. Taste is clean and crisp, with a bitter, chalky apple-like aftertaste. Very little body. Surprisingly bitter, for a beer that is so low on taste in every other respect. Refreshing, and attractively crisp, but still not much of an achievement in my book. (0.33l bottle.)

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - OCT 7, 2006
Golden with a good head. The hop is present both in the aroma and flavor. Average bitterness in this quite good pilsner

Bottle Nice light bitterness with a dry finish. A bit watery, but thirst quenching. Not my favorite, but not bad.
