Lemke10 (755) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 5, 2012
It pours a clear, yellowish amber color with a foamy white head. The aroma has that classic pilsner scent. The texture is decent with an ok flavor. This is a fairly weaker in taste than most German Pilsners. The use of malts and hops are very difficult to find in the flavor, as there seems to be more of a raw grainy taste. Drinks smooth and easy, however there are better German made pilsners on the market.

Taboada (280) - Compostela (Galiza), - JUL 14, 2014
Tasted from the tap on 11/07/2014. Pured golden colour with a foamy white head. Aroma is malty. Taste is little watery with malts and yeast. Aftertaste is a little dry. Not the kings of pilseners. Next one please!

It poured a golden color with a white head. The aroma was of honey, lemon and malts. The taste was grainy, with malts and grassy bitterness.

Westkyoto77 (503) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 3, 2014
Can to glass. Heady aromas of wet straw and wheat. Off-gold with decent, lasting head. Fine carbonation. Quite bitter and dry, with a good bit of depth. Not exactly the king if pilsners, but not awful either.

SetauketBrewer (38) - New York, USA - JUN 18, 2014
Very light golden pour, appears almost watery. Strong pilsner malt aroma of hay with an undertone of fruit. Light flavor of cracker. No noticeable hops. A little watery on the mouth feel.

Bottled, 500ml at Zum Anker, Rudenheim am Rhein, Hesse. Pale gold with white head. Dryish, malty but thin beer, light on the palate, little follow through flavour wise. Mostly bland, highly carbonated.

Cousin_Larry (291) - - JUN 4, 2014
Aroma is hay, barnyard, corn, mild skunk. Head dissipates quickly after pour. Tastes like someone dropped a handful of nickels into a glass of water. Not repulsive, but wow is this watery.
