The king of the beers - Unique in the taste. The Premium-Pilsener of highest quality.

bubbleflubber (2131) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - AUG 12, 2007
On tap at the Microfestivus ’07... A greatly retentive ocean-foam head caps a dull yellow pour. There is a very faint citrus and earthen hop nose. The flavor is indicative of the style, a dry upfront palate... implied yeast. A slightly grassy bitter back isn’t necessarily intrusive, although it does grow... There is an oddly thin creamy mouthfeel, certainly not indicative of the crisp expectation. It feels just this side of watery... Overall, it’s left a bit underachieving.

Bottle. Golden and crystal clear with a white head that abates quickly. Aroma is citrus and floral. Flavor is citrus hops with a bit of sweet maltiness. Bitter hops more pronounced in the aftertaste. Noticeable effervescence. Refreshing.

TheBeerGod (5861) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - AUG 5, 2007
Bottle. Golden pour. The small fizzy white head rapidly vanishes. Aroma seems initially skunky but expands to reveal buttery, biscuity malts, grass, and floral hops. Taste is bitter hops, grass, biscuity malts and soft honey. Body is light and bitter. Mild carbonation. Ends with more hops, flowery notes, grass, biscuit, buttery malts and soft honey.

[461-20070728] Sample @ LCBO-Summerhill. Straw and hay aroma with light alcohol. Clear, yellow body with a quick foamy white head. More straw and more hay in the flavour. Light body. Not unpleasant but light.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 27, 2007
just above average pil. Pours a golden yellow, thin white head. Flowery aroma. Lacks the crisp finish and body of the better pils. Drinkable but not a standout.

Pours a real pale yellow in the glass with a thin fizzy white head reminiscent of generic mainstream beers. Aroma is skunky like any lager should be. This beer lacks alot of the qualities that I really love in the pilseners from the czech republic. It doesn’t retain much head, lacks the crisp hop profile and a little of the subtleties that make the style so delicious. However, like most pilseners, this beer is very drinkable and very refreshing. Not a bad buy.

Skinnyviking (8413) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 8, 2007
Draught. Medium high white head, lasting and creamy. Weak and malty aroma, clear and crispy barley malt flavor. Low carbonation. Relatively long barley malt aftertaste.

Dedollewaitor (15230) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 3, 2007
Can: Clear yellow with full white head. Malty/corn aroma. Taste of Malts & hops. Light thin but fresh & crisp taste. Enjoyable pils!

DarkElf (3050) - 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.
