DarkElf (3038) - La Jolla, California, USA - JUL 1, 2007
06-Jun-07 (12 oz bottle: Purchased 01-Jun-07 at BevMo in La Jolla, CA) In a recent pilsener tasting I ran at my BevMo, KöPi was the crowd favorite, and I had no complaints either (though it wasn’t my favorite). Malty, grainy, lightly bready nose with a gentle hop fragrance. That breadiness is limited only to a background aroma and does not present itself in the flavor. Rather, this medium-bodied pilsener is decidedly malty with a hint of grain and a pleasant, mildly bitter Noble hop flavor and no bitter aftertaste. The delicate, but crisp hop character is what really makes this pilsener enjoyable to drink and refreshing on the palate. Medium-high carbonation has a soft mouthfeel. An inch of foamy, white head caps the golden body, but points off for being a bit hazy, even after the beer warms up a bit. I imagine this must be pretty nice on tap.

Sweet hay aroma, not very strong. Gold color, no head. Cherry and vanilla taste, with a decent hop finish.

norsedoc (248) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 8, 2007
I remember drinking this on tap a a bar on Lincoln in Chicago. Seemed much wonderful then. Now at home in bottle, just not the same. Clear gold color, head dissipates. Light straw aroma, some hops. Decent body, not too bitter.

altonbrownd (3752) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - JUN 3, 2007
Can at Frankfurt Airport. Skunky nose aroma. Eggy, grassy. Tasted like just another pilsener to me. Should probably restaste on tap.

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
