kmeves (1098) - Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 1, 2007
Slight bread aroma, color typical of the style. Lively carbonation, light mouthfeel. Some bitterness, probably middle of the road for the style. More bitter aftertaste.

cazort (553) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 30, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2007 Aroma not particularly strong. Very skunky, bitter. There is some malt flavour. Tastes cold, metallic. Leaves an unpleasant aftertaste, sour and a bit chemically. I was hoping this one to be better than the mainstream Beck’s, Warsteiner’s, etc, but in my opinion it is about in the same category, perhaps only a tiny bit better. It has the same metallic taste and much of the same unpleasant chemically aftertaste.

JesseM (1155) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 28, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2007 Everything about this beer screams to me LIGHT. Light in colour, light in body and light in flavour. But it’s not that bad actually, just not very distinctive. It has an unusually nice after taste though. Gotta love stale noble hops!

had it at a bar in kreuzberg, very nice for the typical cheap pilsener that it is, the palate was quite rich even though we were pounding it

Nekronos (3742) - Xalapa, MEXICO - MAY 16, 2007
NOt too interesting, very bitter. It was on a 5 litres barrel. And lasted for days. But it had some German touch.

winkle (477) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 5, 2007
Bottled: Pours a pale clear gold with a slightly coarser head than I’d like. Typical grassy noble hop aroma with perhaps the odd malty note. Quite active carbonation. Pretty uncomplicated but nice all round, bitter clean finish. At $40 a case this isn’t a bad imported pilsener.

Snoro (298) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 4, 2007
Bičre trčs légčre, sans arričre-goűt. Ce n’est pas une bičre que je boirais pour son goűt, mais pour en prendre une pour boučre.

Magtek32 (76) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 4, 2007
500ml Can. Pale yellow colour, with a big fluffy white head. Hops, grains, grass, bread and a touch of malt in the aroma. Nice taste with grassy hops and a touch of malt coming through, although i do detect a little bit of skunkiness. A nice smooth, long, bitter finish with decent carbonation. A decent pils.

Nightfall (1306) - Hamburg, GERMANY - APR 30, 2007
Found it at Kiosk near my house. Hazy yellow with small head. Hoppy aroma and taste. A nice average Pilsner.

TerryR (384) - Oswego, Illinois, USA - APR 25, 2007
Golden with a nice white head. Light malt and grassy hops in the aroma. Flavor is more light malt with a touch of butter. Crisp finish. One of my favorite German pils.
