pootzboy (1578) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - APR 27, 2005
A yellow-gold colored German pils with a nice retentive white frothy cap...laces well. Aroma is malt pronouced and sweetish with light pine like aromas. Great malt delivery to the palate...bready but light sweetness is balanced well with pine-citrus hops but it is a mellow hop presense...not sharp like the Czech pils....finish is mild and bisquity with a light citrus twang...I like this smooth tastey pils and at this price, leave the domestic crap and cheaper commie pilsners on the shelf. This one delivers a great German malty taste in mellow balence with pine-citrus hopping for a pleasant, fresh taste.

MoritzF (8402) - Bochum, GERMANY - MAR 16, 2005
Golden/jejume colour with creamy medium head. A lit bit stinky at first, later with hoppy blend. Malty flavour with bland hoppy dry finish. One of the best (of the few) Ruhr-Area Pilseners.

heemer77 (5096) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - FEB 24, 2005
On tap. Thin white head. Light gold Aroma is very light with some grass and bread. The taste is full with oranges and some sweet bread.Slight spice of pepper. Slightly sweet.

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 19, 2005
Can - malty, crisp, fresh tasting pilsener. Refreshing and clean. (Sounds like I’m writing an ad here) All in all, there’s no reason to load your fridge with the mors popular imports - Heinie, Becks - when this fine pilsener is now readily available.

Ungstrup (29081) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2005
A hazy yellow beer with a small off-white head. The aroma is sweet hoppy, while the flavor is sweet, dry, and very hoppy. Nice pils.

ThomasE (5176) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 17, 2005

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2005
Buttery deep gold colour. Modest carbonation. A run of the mill pilsner. Soft malt and grassy hop aroma. Fairly dry, with a touch of hop bitterness. Moderately crisp, but has a slight metallic tang on the finish. Serviceable, but nothing really stands out. 500ml bottle from beersofeurope.co.uk.

500ml can. A nice looking pils. Very creamy white head, light straw colour. Grassy hop aroma. Pretty decent bitterness, some malt detectable as well. A pleasant surprise.

dirkules (629) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 25, 2004
Crisp... a bit grassy... pleasant malts... pale and all around decent pilsener. Nuff said.

Out of the can this golden pils was slightly metallic with some bitterness. Kind of tastes like other pils from German with little flair.
