Westkyoto77 (623) - 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.

Maits (179) - ESTONIA - SEP 9, 2016
Clear golden beer with little white head. Malty and little bit hops in nose. Taste is light bitter malty and few notes of hops. Easy drinkable light body beer, actually quite descent pilsener.

thellgren (830) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 4, 2016
0.33 l bottle from Alko Hakaniemi, Helsinki. Appearance is clear and golden. This is lightly malty and actually quite light as a whole but it is also nicely hopped. Quite nice but not exceptional.

kaserov (226) - Oviedo, SPAIN - AUG 23, 2016
Color de rubia, muy claro, sin capa de espuma. Carbonatación media tirando a baja. No me interesa el aroma, tan similar al de mil cervezas más (sobre todo muchas de mi país). El sabor es similar al aroma, pero algo más marcado, rancio, muy similar al de la Krombacher (pero algo mejor, indudable). Ni para refrescar.

Bottle. Clear straw color with a white head. Aroma and taste of pils malt, floral notes, and mild skunkiness. Underwhelming but drinkable.

tillmac62 (685) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - JUL 27, 2016
Crystal clear golden pour. World class head volume, lacing and retention. Good, but a bit weak, nose of light lemon and a touch of bready malt. Yeast and very light hops are present but are in the background. Slightly sweet. Light body that is smooth but very similar to water. World class carbonation / body balance. Light effervescence is present in the middle while the finish becomes slightly prickly. The carbonation may appear light but is spot on for the light body. The flavor profile is very good. Intensity and complexity are a bit lacking...hop flavor in particular. The primary flavor component is light biscuit sweetness. This pairs very well with the mid-palate fairly mild bitterness. What hop flavor there is tends to a mix of floral and herbal. The finish is crisp and clean.
