Benzai (13677) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 27, 2013
Sampled from bottle @ RBBWG 2013. Yellow color, small white head. Weird aroma of yeast, sourness and something I can’t quite put my finger on. Taste lightly malts, lightly a sourish hint (old bottle maybe?) and some grains. Nah, no good really.

Martinus (4440) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JAN 21, 2013
Slightly hazy pale yellow colour, white head. Aroma of malts, light fruity nose, some old attick notes. Mlaty flavour, light sherry. Malty finish.
Not bad for an old pilsener!
(From 33cL fliptop bottle @ RBBWG II, 2013. Leftover from a previous tasting, I believe. Still, thanks to who-ever brought it back then!)

sebletitje (9089) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 20, 2013
33cl flip top bottle sample @ RBBWG 2013, courtesy of ?. Dorée, léger trouble avec un col blanc généreux. Arôme est assez doux avec un profile fruité agréable. Palais reste ici aussi assez fruité avec une amertume venant en retrait, le tout conserve ce léger côté renfermé et un fini malt carapils. Malgré son age, cette bière reste une belle surprise surtout dans ce style. Le tout me rappelait plus une pils Bohémienne de part son profil doux.

77ships (7680) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JAN 20, 2013
33 cl. swing bottle sampled @ RBBWG 2013. Thx to whoever brought it the last time – maybe Jeff? Bottle carries the date 14.10.2010 on a sticker on top. Not sure whether this is bottle on or BBF either way this is probably way too old for a pilsner. Lots of floating yeast chunks in the bottle. Mmm… smells like dishwashing liquid, chemical, industrial,… tastes yeasty with lots of industrial citrus, fake stuff in it, sweet medicinal, bit fruity & malty. Light. I actually find this not to bad & more enjoyable than quite a few stuff out there… for what this is, basically a 2 year old pilsner this is actually quite good.

Holy (837) - GERMANY - AUG 10, 2012
Bottle shared with Travlr in Trier. Very sour - I think this batch must be infected - not the normal flavor you’d expect from a pils...

Travlr (21199) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 10, 2012
Bottle courtesy of Holy, thanks - I think. HaY yellow color, small white head, decent lacing. Aroma of feet, lemon, cardboard. Taste is bitter and sour lemon. Interesting.

kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 28, 2012
Die Schaumkrone hält nicht lange, im Bier sind Schwebeteilchen zu sehen. Es schmeckt nach unreifen Hopfen, etwas malzig getreidig. Mein Eindruck ist das das Bier eigentlich noch etwas besser ist aber aus irgendeiner Begebenheit nicht so gut schmeckt wie es sollte. Den es sind echt gute Ansätze vorhanden die allerdings seltsam vermischt wirken. Fazit: Trinkbar aber wenn ich mal in Trier vorbei kommen sollte werde ich wohl einen Nachtest machen! Test vom 1.3.2009, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 8,8,8,9,9,8 - 8,20

Grima (2230) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - FEB 13, 2012
Sorry for the german rating, but this is a lousy rating from my "newbie" time (2007-2009), and it’s not worth of being translated. I just added it for the statistics, and to complete my backlog!
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein zitrusgelbes, dezent getrübtes Bier mit hoher, feiner, langlebiger Krone. Der Geruch ist hopfig säuerlich, sehr frisch insgesamt. Der Antrunk offenbart sich hopfig und angenehm grasig, zudem dezent säuerlich, und leider muss die schlechte Rezenz negativ erwähnt werden. Im Verlauf nimmt die Grasigkeit zu und es wird etwas süßer. Der Abgang zeigt sich getreidig und hopfig herb, zudem recht mild. Eigentlich ein recht gutes Bier, aber es wird mit der Zeit zu wässrig und lasch.

jonas (6699) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - FEB 9, 2012
Bottle, thanks Bierkrug! Citrus and straw aroma. Cloudy pale golden, big lacing head. Honeyish and strawlike malt, nice wide hop-profile - aromatic and sweet. Nice.

Indutiomarus (114) - Idar-Oberstein, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - DEC 21, 2011
Thanks to Bierkrug for this one and really from Holy as well. A good solid Helles. And it is a local one but still very hard to find.Very nice and something to look for.
