odannyob (77) - Colorado, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Poured from a 11.2 ounce bottle (yah, where’d that .8 ounce go?) into a pilsner glass with a chipped foot, by the way. This has become a favorite bier of mein with a handful of sourdough pretzels and a dab of dark ground mustard. A true quencher o’ thirst, this.

Beardbeerman (104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 28, 2014
Dark gold coat with bright and refreshing notes and an interesting sweetness. Nice bitterness adds up to the overall apprecitation. Good pilsner and I liked it less than the Wesnesgruner which I thought had a more balanced taste.

wiosna (271) - - DEC 20, 2014
0,5l tölkki Axelin häissä. Kirkas pissankeltainen. Tuoksussa mallasta, festaribajamajoja. Tuoksuu basic lagerilta. Festariolut. Maussa geneeristä mallasta, ei juuri muuta. Liian kevyt.

Excelente cerveja. Pilsner de verdade. Cerveja clara, com amargor equilibrado. Se sente o malte presente.

thirstyrabbit (1157) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle. Pale yellow body, tall white head. Aroma has herbal Pilsener hops. Sweet malty taste with crisp hops. Clean and refreshing, a good example of the style. Could be less watery though.
