EithCubes (5089) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 4, 2006
Bottle. Clear yellow beer with a soapy white head. Aroma is sweet, slightly malty, slightly floral. Similar taste, malty flavor dominates the hops. Clean but a bit oily. Wouldn’t mind trading the flowers for some bitterness. Decent-to-good Pils, refreshing but unexceptional.

zvsn (717) - ISRAEL - DEC 12, 2014
Bottle. Clear yellow golden with a nice creamy head. Aroma of grains and hay, light floral and soapy notes. Sweet malt favors, slightly cloying, stale hops, herbal bitterness with short finish. Rather light bodied. Drinkable but not particularly good.

Bottle from my father (bought in Germany). Malty smell with pale bread and hay. Clean malty taste with pale bread. Clean and very drinkable lager.

Calisky (1134) - ALSACE, FRANCE - NOV 21, 2014
Couleur jaune dorée, mousse qui disparait. Nez légèrement houblonné. Gout malté, céréales avec petite amertume houblonnée, note légère fruitée raisin en fin de bouche. Corps moyen. Assez simple.

Deep golden color. Malty aroma. Lite bitterness in the aftertaste. Good pilsener

Zarkam (466) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 1, 2014
500ml bottle from Goumondo.de, clear yellow colour, large frothy mostly lasting white head, fair lacing. Moderately malty aroma of grain, straw and caramel, light floral hops. Taste is initially balanced mildly bittersweet and turns into a light bittersweet finish with an acetic feel. Medium body, slick mouthfeel, oily carbonation. Fairly generic, if balanced and pleasantish German pils, having tasted an archetypical pils and a helles in a row, must say that I find the pils flavour/aroma profile somewhat more pleasant.

"Light grassy hops and corn sweetness in the aroma. Fizzy feel, somewhat crisp. Some cereal as well as light hops on the palate. Nothing too exciting..."

Swingtop bottle 50cl. Clear pale golden color, one finger frothy white head, recedes after a while to a thin layer, good lacing; aroma of hops, grain, bread, grass, hay; smooth taste is light malty sweet and light hopbitter; medium body, oily to creamy texture, bit spicy on the tongue, soft carbonation; finish lingering dry and mild bitter, herbal notes. Well-balanced mild pilsener.

Alengrin (2463) - BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2014
German Pilsener with thin, quickly opening, sticky, snow white head and pure golden blonde colour, clear with faint sparkling. Pure malt aroma, a bit honeyish and delicate, paired with herbal, aromatic hops a bit reminiscent of chamomille or even mint. Neutral, grainy onset, soft carbonation, soft honeyish malts, clean and crisp and finishing in a pleasant, mild, herbal and grassy hop bitterness. Good, clean and refreshing example of the style.

neur0 (909) - GERMANY - AUG 10, 2014
(Flasche) Es hat eine sonnengelbe Farbe, ist klar filtriert mit einer weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist würzig-hopfig, ganz etwas pappig und einer grünen Note. Der Geschmack ist schlank etwas süßlich, sonst wie das Aroma. Der Abgang ist etwas pappig mit einer breiten, mittelstarken Bittere.

Percy0103 (203) - MEXICO - AUG 8, 2014
Bottle, 500ml. A golden beer with a small white head that fades away almost completely after a minute and with a lot of gas. Aroma is of wheat, canned corn, cereal and a hint of pickles. Taste is bitter and at the end I think it becomes slighlty like a macro. Medium carbonation and faint astringency.
