The king of the beers - Unique in the taste. The Premium-Pilsener of highest quality.

natejgood (433) - Bozeman, Montana, USA - JAN 15, 2010
This beer pours a very light, clear golden. I have rarely seen a beer this clear, and it looks almost like urine. It smells a bit like a Heineken, that is it smells a bit skunky. This beer tastes a bit like a Miller Light but is a small step above Miller Light for sure. There is a bit of malt way in the back, but it is barely noticeable. This beer isn’t unpleasant to drink, but it doesn’t have a whole lot going for it either.

judasbeer (431) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 15, 2010
Appearance: Clear straw yellow color with a golden tint. Nice creamy head on sits on the top.
Aroma: Sweet honeyish grains with a slightly sulphurous/mineral attributes. Moderate grassy/lemony hop bite.
Flavor: Harmonious transitions from the honey-dipped grainy, cracker-like malt base to the fresh, flowery hop leaves with a short sulphurous, watery interlude. Fresh, grassy german hop biterness lingers in the finish.
Mouthfeel/Palate: Easy, soft moutfeel with a mild carbonation and a balanced, dry palate.
Overall: An impressive, but a bit boring german pilsner with a gentle hop-malt balance and a restrained hop bitterness.

Easy sessioning pils but again, like Jever, it left much to be desired. A very simple pils with little bang, however fortunately not for much buck.

330cl bottle. Sweet odour, big-bodied sticky beer. It has light Co2, silky. In taste there are equilibrium of sweet malt and hoppy bitter. You can feel a very little smoke in there. Nice, complex beer.

500mL can: Very grainy aroma with sharp hops. Carbonated, Yellow gold body and thick, frothy white head (very appealing). Flavor is sharp and very bitter with a very subdued malt character and tends to get dryer as the beer warms, leaving a bitter aftertaste behind for many minutes to come. Mouthfeel is crisp, dry and refreshing. Where was this stuff when I was at the festhallen this Oktoberfest? Must’ve missed it...

bottle - yellow golden beer with white head. Hoppy and grainy aroma. The flavour has a nice bitterness, malt and hops.

Roli (405) - laval, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 3, 2008
500ml can. Small white head with blonde color. Grassy, bland and very watery. Maybe the bottled one is better, but the one I had barely tasted something...

Bottle. This one is also a typical German pilsener. Always nice for the evening. Hops, good balance. Ok.

From Lidl. In can, poured on Ikea’s pilsner glass. Watching Breaking Bad 2x12. A bit more taste than the average pilsner
