crossovert (11184) - Illinois, USA - FEB 10, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2011 500ml can. A very good pilsener, very smooth mouthfeel and excellent taste of fresh lemony, springy hops, Der Koenig der Biere? Maybe not, but it beats the shit out of Budweiser. ____________________________ 12 oz bottle, I’ve also had this from a can and it was pretty good. It pours a deep gold with a nice big white head. One of the better smelling pilseners, this is the definition of a balanced traditional pilsener in the nose. It is one of the more flavorful pilseners, it is nicely balanced, not the best flavor, but good. It’s a great pilsener, maybe better out of the can too which is rare.

kaserov (114) - 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.

In Klobenz. Clear yellow colour and lace. Went down easy like a kolsch with a bit of hay and pepper. Perfumey

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

tillmac62 (684) - 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.

DraftDodger (1041) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2016
Olhăo 18/7 2016. 50 cl can from Oriente Modelo Supermarket. Can has a couple of the usual metals, a Kings Crown and the German Rheinheitsgebot printed on the front of the can. You certainly need to think that this is an autenticitet German beer. Pours clear yellow with small white head. Disappears fairly fast leaving what looks like a carbonated urin sample. Aroma is medium sweet with malts, grains and corn. Light sour notes. Medium carbonation and watery palate. Taste is medium sweet balanced by medium bitterness apparant in the aftertaste. Not very complicated - but certainly drinkable.

SDalkoholic (2331) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JUL 16, 2016
Bottle from BV Liquor: Poured a clear golden liquid and had a small development of film foam for the head. Aroma smells sweet yet tart and almost smells fruity similar to a cider while a whiff of wet grains lurks in the background. Flavor of the beer is a bit off and brings about wet cardboard and old stale cereal or corn mush flavorings. Not that great tasting and it said it expired over a month ago but wow did it really fall apart fast. Won’t be buying this from the bottles again. Still had a rocking carbonation level but it taste like cornflakes with water.

ManVsBeer (8496) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2016
Keg @ Bleeding Heart Tavern, Farringdon, London. Golden with a very thin head and a mid carbonation. Easy-drinking but very malty within both its Pilsener aroma and taste.

0.5 l can, thanks to my aunt for getting me this from Germany. Golden color, thick white head that doesnt remain for long. Hay, grass, some hoppy notes in aroma. Bitter taste with short bitterish finish, light body, lively carbonation. Not too complex, but well made.
