rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 23, 2004
Bottled. Golden. Perfumy hoparoma. Slight flowery flavour with a harsh bitter mouthfeel. Band-aid and estery.

rlgk (10085) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - JAN 23, 2004
Yellow/golden pilsner. Aroma and flavor from hops, but nothing special. Rather boring and with a quite flat finish.

larsniclas (5550) - Billdal, SWEDEN - JAN 23, 2004
Bottled. Golden, frothy head. Pungent and chemical aroma; dry and papery. Rather flat and malty.

Damage (77) - London, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 30, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2004 Pale coloured, moderate carbonation, very thin head but with an almost soapy lacing. Doughy, hops aroma. Bitterness consistant through finish. A very nice German pils. (500 ml can)

Brian (145) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 9, 2003
Hoppy--almost thought I had a Budvar (er, Czechvar--don't sue me Anheuser Busch!) but the color was pretty pale and the hoppiness didn't linger as much. A good pils.

SilkTork (5166) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2003
Bottle. Fizzy. Salty. Long dusty finish mixed with salt. I'd much prefer a hoppy session bitter. This is making me thirstier. Stupid.

belgianhomebrew (646) - Acworth, Georgia, USA - NOV 7, 2003
Nice hop aroma. Good bitterness throughout, but not enough to detract from the style. An enjoyable pilsner, and I am not a fan of the style.

wnp22 (685) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 3, 2003
Tasted in Toronto from LCBO. Light yellow colour, light white head. Malty sweet aroma with hint of bitterness. Light taste, initially sweet with a bitter finish.

Rastacouere (6122) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 2, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2003 Gold body with a respectable white head consisting of small and regular bubbles that stick to the glass pretty well. Grassy/bready cerealic aroma. It begins with pure malts which are quickly followed by good hops shades. Good balance. Medium carbonation, medium to high thickness. Seemed to me like a definition of the style, just not overly interesting.

Ubiquibeer (140) - Cleveland, USA - AUG 30, 2003
I drank this one extensively while living in Germany in the early 80's. It doesn't seem to taste as good now. Typical Northern German pils, drier, more bitter and more astringent than its Bohemian cousins.
