mlkmn (17) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - NOV 5, 2014
Golden brown color with a small, quite persisting head. Strong hoppy aroma, with floral overtones and a hint of toffee. Quite a smooth taste, the hops don’t come forward in so crude a way as with many other mainstream lagers. It is just bitter enough, aftertaste is very short, brown bread on the palate. Really a simple but good pilsener.

Not even sure what to write here. Serviceable pilsner. Light grain and cereal, ambiguously bitter finish. Boring but drinkable.

plaugher (202) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - OCT 27, 2014
500ml can into English pint. Pours a clear golden-straw colour with a sparse, lasting white head. Light malty and floral hop notes (and not the awful skunkiness I feared from a new-in-town mass-produced pilsner); light crisp sweetness with moderate carbonation. Smooth and easy drinking. Not too bad an offering.

einherjar (56) - CROATIA - OCT 18, 2014
500ml can. Pours clear golden color with large white head, Malty aroma. Malty taste with very little bitterness and pleasant aftertaste. Good choice for pilsner.

Bendrixian (1172) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 16, 2014
500ml Can from LCBO. Pours a clear golden colour. Classic hay aroma with some florality and light malts. Fast flavour profile with a touch of malts and lots of cereal like flavours. THis isn’t that bad of a brew, not good but i was expecting much worse.

BlackHaddock (4140) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2014
On tap 0.3 litres in U Cerneho Vola (Black Ox), Prague on 5th Oct 2014 just before hitting the Strahov Monastery and brewery. Nice golden hue to the clear body, good solid white blanket on top. Nice uncomplicated blend of none smelling ingredients. Slight malt lead but the hops even out any sweetness getting above itself. refreshing and crisp: a typical Czech Pilsner in fact, no better or worse than so many others.

kryon (1478) - SWEDEN - OCT 3, 2014
Pours pizzy yellow with carbonated medium white head Aromas of corn, hay, bread, malt syrup Taste is nice and clean. Quite sweet but well balanced pilsener with ok subtle hopyness

cmacklin (306) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 26, 2014
500 ml can. Pours a clear, golden yellow with an average, frothy, white head. Sweet aroma of caramel malt and fruit. Sweet flavour of malt, caramel, fruit and a light straw note with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body with a smooth, watery texture and soft carbonation.

aleigator (283) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 24, 2014
Has a clear, golden color, with a thin, very stable, froth head. Contains faint aromas of wheat and straw, along with a decent infusion of herbal, grassy hops. Tastes surprisingly characterful for what I was expecting, with toffeish, bready malts up front, along with a fitting carbonation. Slightly bitter hops get introduced to the palate along with a big load of straw and wheat. This brew is refreshing, but with a strong malt backbone, which overpoweres the hops by far, leaving only a herbal, slightly bitter touch. Finishes malty, with buttery toffee above a slightly metallic carbonation, while the hops have already been fading.

lesifflebiere (1352) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 16, 2014
Blonde cristalline, d’un doré trčs jaune, avec une petite couche de mousse blanche ; le nez est de céréales blondes et de foin frais coupé. La bouche manque de ce petit kick qui fait les pilsners exceptionnelles, et un goűt de sucre de maďs persiste. Par contre, les houblons sont quand męme présents, la buvabilité est (sans surprise) extręme, et le goűt est assez franc, avec des malts qui occupent bien les espaces vides laissés par le manque de houblons. Une pils correcte, mais loin du peloton de tęte dans ce pays.
