Bottle at the Abbe-Mensa in Jena. Goldenoid body. Bready nose. The taste is the classic Classic German Pilsener - remarkably dry, ending with a solid herbal hoppy presence. Actually quite better than I expected!

Botella. Clear golden like colour, white ehad, lively. Grassy hoppy bit malty aroma. Ok mouthfeel. Flavour is typical German pils like, grassy hops and malty, bit sweet, light bitterness, lightly dry in the finish.

omegamike (152) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2012
Keg at Trembling Madness. Pours dark, mahogany brown, with thick mocha head. Body is quick thick for a lager, perhaps a little to cloying in the finish. Aroma is honey, brown sugar, some spice. Flavour is treacle, weak coffee, some treacle in the finish, rather pleasant overall.

TaxiDriver (1472) - Stadland, GERMANY - JUL 2, 2011
The smell is light malty and sweet with a hint of fresh bread. The white fizzy small head has a short duration, the body is pale yellow. The taste is light bitter, some gras and light malty. The body is rather light, dry and lively with a lot of carbonation.

Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 12, 2011
Getreidiger Geruch, der sich auch im Bier widerspiegelt. Herbes Pils mit deutlich bitteren Note, die im Mittelteil und Nachgeschmack deutlich hervortritt. Im Mittelteil leicht malzig, dazu hopfig. Das hopfige Aroma ist auch im Nachgeschmack noch präsent. Nettes, wenn auch nicht überdurchschnittliches Bier. Test vom 24.12.2006, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 7,8,8,9,7,8 - 8,00

harrisoni (13276) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2011
Bottle thanks to a colleague from work. Very pale gold with lasting thin white head. Touch of lemon hop on aroma. Decent pils I thought. Yes a touch of metal on the carbonation but the fresh lemon is ok. Its slightly soft and creamy in mouth. Decent pils.

meerbier (1473) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - MAR 1, 2011
Tap@SomePubBerlin. Grainy aroma. Pale yellow, off-white head, good lace. Maltsweet, soft hops, light herbal in the finish. Light bodied. Refreshing and OK but that’s it.

KnutAlbert (6012) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 17, 2011
On tap in Berlin as Köstritzer Helles. Light. Cereals, on the sweet side. Crips dry finish. Inoffensive, unmemorable.
