floydslip (314) - Washington DC, USA - APR 25, 2016
Light straw colored beer with a bright white head. Nose of lemon, cereal grain, and slightly musky hops. Flavor is fairly typical for the style with a slight grainy sweetness initially followed by a mouth coating bitterness, although it’s not particularly strong. Refreshing and drinkable, but nothing noteworthy.

Metalchopz (2964) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - APR 7, 2016
4-pack of cans from a Quebec convenient store. Pours a light golden colour with a frothy white cap, good retention and creamy lace. Not completely filtered with tiny transparent particles floating around. Metallic notes in the nose. Grainy malt taste with decent pilsner-like hops. Some sweetness with the cereal, but not syrupy. The taste seems better in a glass, but the smell can stay in the can. A refreshing, inexpensive pils.

TedE (792) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 26, 2016
330ml bottle into shaker. Grainy nose. Pale amber beer with solid sticky white head. Light carbonation. Grains dominate the taste and finish but some bitter hops shine through at the end. Robust and refreshing.

rayaron (1192) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - MAR 7, 2016
Bottle 0.5l. Clear yellowish with white head. Very light aroma with some graininess and flowers. Bitter flavor with notes of lemon and some graininess, sweetish, slightly dry. Light-bodied.

Beerheart65 (1300) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 7, 2016
Clear golden, thin white short head. Semisweet and grainy, minimal, thinly butter, bit grass. Medium body, dry, standard carbonation, medium long finish, toasted. Basic and minimal but nothing really wrong here, easy to drink, good palate.

Juggernaut84 (188) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 18, 2016
Wenn schon pils dann so! Frisch Hopfenbetont aber nicht flach oder schnöde. Feinherb und spritzig würzig und ein super Schaum. Gut!

hauxe (268) - Butzbach, GERMANY - FEB 14, 2016
Pours pale gold from the bottle with a decent if somewhat foamy head. Calls itself the King of Beers which, in my book, is usually not an auspicious sign. Aroma is lightly sweet and malty, with some old sock, and little discernable hops presence. The hops are more discernable in the taste, which is pleasant enough, and set against a lightly sweet malty background and mild carbonation. The palate is a bit watery, which distracts from the already rather mild flavors. Decent. Boring. Not a king.
