Westkyoto77 (504) - Kyoto, - 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.

pumpkinhead2 (309) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 30, 2014
Bière jaune aux reflets verdâtres, pas voilée, mais pas parfaitement limpide non plus, effervescence moyenne-faible, et surmontée d’un mince col blanc, mais tout de même assez dense, collant et persistant. Arômes de malt pâle, grain, léger sucre brut, léger houblon végétal. Nez d’un intérêt très faible, intensité et complexité déficientes. En bouche, pétillement moyen sur la langue, breuvage assez mousseux, onctuosité intéressante au palais, belle rondeur. Au goût, malt pâle et grain, léger sucre brut, houblon herbacé et aromatique, on décèle de subtiles notes de menthe. Amertume bien sentie en finale, mais qui reste somme toute plutôt légère. Plus intéressante et intense en bouche qu’au nez, mais ça reste largement de le créneau de la bière «grand public». Plutôt décevante sur le plan de la dégustation.

Foffern (1168) - Bodø, NORWAY - JUL 25, 2014
On tap at pub in Berlin. Pours a clear straw colour with a medium, whipped eggwhite-like head. The aroma is filled with pale malt, hay and some sweet corn. The flavour is similar but light with additional tones of hops and some metal, and is a little sweet. Has a light and watery mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A malty but careful pilsener.

Bottle: Grainy, corny aroma, light bitterness. Golden color, white head. Flavor is malty/grainy, grassy hops. Light to medium hop bitterness, grass but mainly bitter hops. Weak.

Taboada (281) - 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.

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.
