diabel (1619) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - JUL 20, 2006
Draught White, rocky head, which is fully lasting. Clear, yellow body. Fair lace. Weak aroma of malts and hops. Moderately bitter in the beginning, lightly bitter in the end. Lightly bodied and softly carbonated. A decent, hop-bitter pilsener that looks great.

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - JUN 26, 2006
New offering on tap at my local, served in a standard bar pilsener glass. Made a good appearance, poured a clear pilsener yellowish gold with a foamy white head slowly that settled into a thin lacing, very minimal amount of sticking, good carbonation. Had a good pilsener nose of floral and grassy hops with a backing sweet bready maltiness. A malty crisp and smooth lightish medium bodied mouthfeel, good drinkability. Crisp sweet bready maltiness with a balancing spicy, grassy hoppiness, a soft bitterness and a dry grainy and spicy finish that cleanses the palate. Tasty and balanced pilsener, very refreshing.

eaglefan538 (2920) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 11, 2006
Maybe my favorite Pilsener, maybe not. A style that doesn’t hit with a home run, but this one subsided all grassy malts / hoppiness and only slightly came out grassy hoppy. For that much, kudos. Not bad at all. Only very light grassy hops with almost a kolsch base. Very nicely balanced. Enjoyable.

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - JUN 4, 2006
(0.33L Bottle) Pours golden with average white head. Some hops with a rather bland, grassy aftertaste. Pretty average.

STEPHENDR (478) - California, USA - JUN 2, 2006
Bright gold appearance –vaguely hoppy, hay not much in the smell department – slightly bitter, and dry– medium body- aftertastes sweet

Tranquillity (1445) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 1, 2006
In my taste notes I wrote "Hops, hops and hops". Even though, a good beer on the beach in the summer.

rauchbier (3645) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2006
Bottle, from Rythym & Booze in Brigg. Gold, thin white head and good condition. Gentle sweet grain with a trace of flowery hops, quite chalky and grainy in th but with a solid underpinning of hop bitterness that just dominates in the finish

SHIG (3851) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - MAY 22, 2006
Golden amber with a white foamy head. Smell is of a sweet hoppy aroma. Bitter grainy beer typical for Germany.

DonMagi (5595) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2006
This stuff is everwhere in dusseldorf. Aroma is a mix of pilsner malts and grassy hops. Taste is similar, nothing special, easy drinking.
