EithCubes (5475) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 8, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2006 Bottled. Pale yellow pour. Grass and oats in the nose. Crisp bitter hoppy taste, some hay. Refreshing, clean, very good pils. Nice racing stripe on the cap, too. Update; A bit sweeter than I remembered, and richer in malt (though this one is primarily concerned with hops). Lighter-than-optimal body, but with a strong a balanced taste like this, many flaws can be forgiven. Still love that Köstritzer racing stripe.

WillemsUrenkel (1383) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - MAR 24, 2016
0,5 l company own bottle. Clear pale golden in the glass, foamy off white head, fast fading. Sweet grassy on the nose. Taste starts with malt and grain in the smooth version. Low bitterness, soft grainy finish, hints of citrus. Easydrinker. Boring.

Nichts ist wirklich herrausragend, alles sehr weichgespült, eher enttäuachend als edel.

kerenmk (4014) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 2, 2016
Draught at Nemo Bar Berlin Mitte, 24.12.15. Clear gold, white head. A little DMS and cooked veggies in the nose, salty with DMS sweetness in the mouth. Light-to-medium body, well carbonated, weird salty finish.

darkseduction (694) - Zweibrücken, GERMANY - NOV 27, 2015
Flasche 50cl. Hellgelb, leichte Trübung. Keine ausgeprägte Hopfennase, auch nicht im Antrunk, sehr dezent im Hintergrund. Keine spürbare Bitterkeit. Läuft belanglos hinunter, viel zu mild für ein Pils. Hatte einiges mehr an Qualität von dieser Traditionsbrauerei erwartet. Kann keine edlen Hopfenaromes entdecken, die das Prädikat "Edel" gerechtfertigt hätten. Enttäuscht bitter.

Quack-Duck (9110) - Down South, GERMANY - NOV 18, 2015
bottle from Heinrichs 3000 Supergetränkemarkt Kornwestheim. Pale yellow, tall white head. Malty start, some shy woody-dusty hops. Not my favourite, but not too bad.

On Tap in "Miss Marples" in Erfurt. Tacky themed bar ! Crisp clear amber Pilsner with white fizzy head, Citrus/hops/clean and crisp. Not bad.
