fiulijn (18390) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 15, 2008
Blond color. Poor head. It’s a lean and clean Pilsner, quite dry and bitter, balanced, but naturally missing any excitement. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not bad, maybe with pizza or a sandwich…

Leighton (17767) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2015
Bottle shared on the train from Nuremberg to Freising during day 3 of the Bamberg Jolly of January 2015. Pours perfectly clear pale yellow with a frothy, white head. Nice and drinkable, with sugary pale cereal, biscuits, mellow bitter straw. Light bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish, simple, with lightly toasted cereal, hay. Nice one.

rlgk (17116) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 23, 2004
Yellow/golden pilsner. Aroma and flavor from hops, but nothing special. Rather boring and with a quite flat finish.

harrisoni (16837) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2008
500ml bottle at Ship & Mitre April Fest 08. Gold with lasting off white head. A little bready, but good in the mouth, some lemon, hop, carbonation tingle on finish. Bit metallic, some lemon and lime. Fine pilsner.

yngwie (16377) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 16, 2011
Can. It pours a clear, golden body and a small, dense, white head. The aroma is better when drinking it in Germany, but still decent, with pale malts, fruity and grassy hops and some hay. The flavor has a nice bitterness, with pale malts and hay in the back, finishing mostly bitter. Medium body. A decent beer I’ll try to remember to rerate fresh in Germany some day. 110516

TBone (15699) - Pori, FINLAND - MAY 3, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2004 Bottled
Lager color, very small white head. Slightly skunked hoppy aroma. Malty, hoppy, with sweet tones. Medium-bodied, good pilsener with bitter finish. (5/2/7/3/10 2.7)
Re-rate, bottled (BB 06/2006)
Golden color, quickly vanishing white head. Mild plastic hop aroma. Fruity, sweet malts and weak bitterness in aftertaste. Quite boring pilsener, a bit like Budvar. (3/2/4/2/8 1.9)
