smmaaren (512) - NORWAY - OCT 12, 2014
On tap at restaurant in Albir, Spain. Clear golden colour with a big white head. Typical pilsener- style beer. Pleasent with grilled food.

Wulfstan (509) - California, USA - APR 22, 2008
This is another wonderful German pilsner. It’s deep gold with a medium, creamy white head that steadily shrinks to a thin, permanent top. The aroma is a solid, full-bodied pilsner with a lot of sweet grain, hay, herbal hops. It’s fruity and aromatic. The taste is nice fruity grain, honey, apple, a light but persistent pein-herb flavour, grass, a light fruity-honey sweetness dominated by the hop flavour and bitterness. Compared to Bitburger, the grain flavour is weaker, with more of an apple quality, and the herb character is about the same in strength but the flavour is different.

hobsch (505) - Cologne, GERMANY - AUG 4, 2013
Bottle 0.33l steini. Typical german mass market Pils. Average carbonation, average bitterness etc. Nevertheless still the best of this stuff.

delnoche (502) - Alamogordo, New Mexico, USA - AUG 22, 2009
33cl bottle poured into a footed pilsner. Sparkling gold with ample white head. Aroma is grassy hops and skunk. Flavor is metallic and bitter. Finish is the same. Not good.

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 19, 2005
Can - malty, crisp, fresh tasting pilsener. Refreshing and clean. (Sounds like I’m writing an ad here) All in all, there’s no reason to load your fridge with the mors popular imports - Heinie, Becks - when this fine pilsener is now readily available.

EnSiFeRuM (501) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 23, 2008
Canette de 500 ml. La bičre se présente avec une robe dorée-soleil surmontée d’une mousse blanche fugace. Au nez on découvre des arômes de céréales, de jus de pomme et de houblon frais. En bouche le corps est mince. La bičre nous révčles des saveurs de grain, de pomme et de houblon.

punkeedo (498) - Covington, Louisiana, USA - JAN 22, 2009
2008 Bottle. This beer tastes like a "low budget lager." Slightly skunky aroma, clear yellow appearance with very little head. This pilsener has a slightly hoppy aftertaste and is somewhat sweet but bitter. The palate is unbalanced and watery on the tongue. Overall, it tastes like this beer was made with poor hops. Not very good.

Jonb5 (491) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2010
33ml bottle, poured into Koenig glass. Pale colour, 2 finger head, clear. Faint hoppy smell. Typical german pils, dry taste, coarse. This beer is interchangeable with warsteiner, krombacher etc. Nothing spectacular, you know whats coming

mickmac (484) - Ngunnawal, AUSTRALIA - FEB 27, 2009
Clear light bodied golden lager that pours with a quickly diminishing white head, a light spicy-straw aroma and a lingering spicy bitterness.

SJP (483) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 4, 2002
A very nice pilsener with a good dry flavor. A good beer to cut the summer heat.
