Jonb5 (507) - Greater London, - NOV 19, 2012
Golden colour, clear, decent sized head which it held on to quite well. Aroma was Hallertau hop with strong notes of apple. Tasted a bit of clove with hints of banana, finish was grassy and malty, there was some hop bitterness but it wasn’t overdone. Crisp texture, fairly well carbonated, slightly coarse edge from the gas. Decent character for a German Pils, won’t blow anybody away but much better than the big brand Pils on offer.

metalspice (671) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - SEP 24, 2016
Mørk strågul med fint skum. Ordinær, god pils med rene smaker og dufter. Et ørlite hint av grønnsaker, men mindre enn fra andre øl fra samme bryggeri.

Ljus och rätt klar. Frisk smak med en lätt sötma. Bröd och hö kan man också hitta. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ozzatoadisback (85) - ITALY - JUN 28, 2016
Pale golden, frothy and big enough head, slowly disappearing, low to medium lacing. Aroma is light grassy, cereal and bit of soapiness. A bit weak. Taste is more vivid and complex. Soft cereal and white bread, a hint of lemon, a bit of soapiness (not unpleasant), a bit of fresh grass. Overall moderately sweet with a light bitter finish. Light bodied with a pleasant and fine crispness, nicely refreshing. Not outstanding, but a good enough pils.

Passable pils. Very pale yellow colour, large bright white head. Light sweet, grassy aroma. Very simple slightly sweet flavours, light hops. Predictable pils flavour, nothing stands out but serves it’s purpose well if a pils is what you’re after.
