Clear golden, little head. Sweet grainy malt aroma. Light carbonation. Sweet grainy malt flavor. Mildly bitter finish. Remarkably airy on the palate. Very clean but not very memorable.

frankenkitty (1959) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - SEP 21, 2005
The appearance here was very intriguing... a lightly-hazed golden with constant effervescence and some drifting particulate, all under a white, steadfast head. Aromas were fairly weak, with some floral and caramel-malt. Flavorful biterness with no adversities, finishing crisp and dry.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 11, 2005
Soft gentle pale malting with a light refreshing floral hopping in the finish. What could be more simply refreshing?

MiP (13798) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 22, 2005
Bottle. Yellow colour, small white head. Flavour is malty with some hoppiness. Full mouthfeel for a pils.

piscator34 (1996) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 19, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2006 Canned sample. Medium gold in colour with high carbonation. Grainy malt aroma is dominant, with some very mild soapy notes on the back end. Malt dominated flavors as well, with some grassy noble hop contributions, and minerals. Solid bitterness with a slightly drying white flour quality on the finish. Nothing special, but fairly satisfying. You could do much worse.

Pours a clean golden color. Taste is about average with weak to moderate malt and hop character. Finish is slightly bitter.

caesar (5321) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 31, 2005
Decent classic german pilsener. Served cold they are always thirst quenching.

Trev (1962) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 24, 2005
From the can: Pours clear gold with good white foamy head with a strong audible fizzing. Typical grassy, lemon citrus hoppy smell. slight soapy aromal. Nice thirst quenching back of the throat malty fizz. (hard to describe). Good mouthfeel. Thins a bit through the middle with a slight citrus transfer to a Hoppy finish with a bit of a metallic aftertaste. All in all perhaps a slightly above average German pils. Quite refreshing and would be MUCH better fresh on tap I imagine.

pivnizub (9012) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUL 24, 2005
Bottle: Quite pale golden colour, huge, lacing off-white head; grassy hoppiness and some maltiness in the aroma, also traces of sulphur/ rotten vegetables...(?); sweetish begining, mild bitter sweet taste, short but distinctive bitter-aromatic finish; O.K., not unpleasant, but what does here mean "Premium"......?
