Capa (1942) - Manama, BAHRAIN - MAY 31, 2013
Golden with a white head. Aroma is light, a bit of hops, grain. Medium body with a nice carbonated bite. Flavor is lightly grassy and malty. Not much going on but a solid lager. (Bottle at JJ’s Irish Bar, Bahrain)

stevoj (1699) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 19, 2013
Hoppy pilsener. Faint aroma but taste has a snappy, tangy character. Appearance is normal for the style, mouthfeel leans to watery. Nothing spectacular here, but if you like bitter beers, this may be to your liking.

Douberd (1688) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAY 22, 2013
330 ml bottle, bought in Germany. Poured into a footed pilsner glass, ABV 4.8%. I poured it while scratching my head as to why they are mentioning 12% less alcohol than a "normal" pilsner when most of the german beers are less than 5% alcohol, so actually it has the same alcohol as any other german pilsner. The rest, about less calories and such, I couldn’t care less since I posses the power of drinking without getting any weight. Back to the beer, it has a slighty pae golden yellow colour on the body, with a bit more than one finger of white, soapy head on top. Nice activity in the glass. Head has a good retention and it leaves some light lacing on the glass. Bad aroma of dirty hay and rubber. Taste is not that bad on the other hand. Nothing extra ordinary, a usual pilsner taste, some malts, a bit of apples and mildly bitter on the aftertaste, it is quite pleasantly drinkable. Medium thin body, carbonation above average. Nice dryness on the palate. Overall, not that bad, if they could only do something about the aroma.

Saarlander (1685) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - MAR 10, 2006
Slight hops flavor, a little grassy, but overall, very plain, but for a Diät bier, its ok enough. Not worth seeking out, unless I had to, ie, what the purpose of Diät biers are for.

Russo (1629) - Campinas, BRAZIL - AUG 18, 2013
Bottle. Golden color with a fluffy white head that keeps a nice lacing. Aroma is moderate hops hints and malt. Flavor is pretty much the same with a nice bitterness. Low carbonation and light to medium bodied and a balanced bitterness finish.

ElDesmadre (1359) - Mikołów, POLAND - MAR 7, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2014 Bottle. Aroma dominated by green apples, with sweet sugar candy, grassy hops and corn added. It tastes like water with a light beery aftertaste, somewhere between sugar candy and cardboard. Oh my, such a drainpour from this brewery, by all means?

ogreface (1330) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 1, 2013
A kinézete alapján akár egy minőségi pils is lehetne, de ez bizony nem az! Furcsán füves, malátás, illata van, amibe keveredik egy adag több napja a sarokban felejtett, nedves mosogatórongy szúrós, dohos szaga és egy kis ecetes savanyúság. Olyan íze van, mintha kukoricadarát áztattak volna, élesztős, enyhén ecetes vízben, öntöttek volna hozzá gyenge minőségű malátát és egy marék csalánt. Összehúzza a szánkat és kellemetlen, savanyú szájíz marad utána. Pár korty után kiöntöttem...

bartlebier (1161) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - MAR 11, 2014
33cl bottle, Südstar FR. Maisel’s Diätpils reduced in calories, not ABVs? Always up for an experiment... Sulfury nose. Watery, protein-shake like texture with a rough cardboard edge and extra hop extract with no where to go. 75% less fermentable carbohydrates do mean 75% less taste... in many ways this is worse than a non- or low-alcohol beer, because it will take a papershake bite of 4.8% out of your daily ABVs without giving you any taste except mineral hop tea back.
