Embrouille (2831) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 23, 2008
Bottled 33cl. It pours a pale yellow beer with a small white head. The nose reminds me of a non alcoholic beer. Hops, breakfast cereals and honey showing up. The taste is hoppy and sour. Low bitterness. Poor lace. Breakfast cereals and honey in the flavor too. Mediocre grassy finish. Probably highly drinkable.

bartlebier (2820) - Belchium im Biersgau, 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.

djoeye (2759) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 4, 2014
Clear pale straw golden beer. Fine off white chalky head. Curtains inside the mug. Aroma; hops, dust, grains, yeast, bread, dough. Taste; sweet malts, grass, dough, grains, dry plums, cucumber, hops, yeast, dust. Normal as pilsener on palate. Finishes with hops, bread, malts; alright overall. [50 cl. br. btl. 4.8%abv. BB2.3.15]

ALLOVATE (2724) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 14, 2007
Honestly the first Diät-Pilsner I’ve tried. Haven’t missed much, the fact it is intended for persons with diabetes is a good thing but leaves everyone else scratching their head at the lack of pizazz flavour-wise.
From the bottle into a flute glass. A soapy white lather managed to form after a vigorous pour - a wafer thin, drabby mess - atop its tight, finely carbonated, bright, medium gold body. Wisps of fluffy grains on the nose like puffed wheat and barley. Sadly, edges of boiled cabbage water and wet cat ail it and can’t be ignored, tainting it for the length as it was stretched for taste. Thin, crisp and dry is the palate. Light showing of grains mid to late seems pasty in feel. Slight herbal tang late also, not much bitterness to save it. Clean, crisp swallow, subtle dustiness in the afterglow. That’s pretty much it. Clean tasting over attenuated lager, quite off on the nose. Bland overall!!! (33cL, 10/10/07, The Beer Store Morley)

pivo (2646) - GERMANY - FEB 9, 2003
No nose to speak of, yellow color, thin head. Extreme, knife-like sharp on the middle of the tongue at the finish, but not in a good way. Balance way off. Thin. Odd.

Kristall-König (2560) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - AUG 9, 2011
Ganz passable Optik. Getreidig-hopfige Geruchsaromen. Auf der Zunge anfangs süßlich und kribbelnd. Mittelteil und Abgang deutlich herber. Gut gemachtes Diät-Pilsener, von dem ich positiv überrascht wurde. Weich und süffig.Test vom 5.3.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche

YogiBeera (2554) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 21, 2003
It was soapy. Smelled light, sweet parfume like. Not really my taste.

ElDesmadre (2507) - 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?

armando629 (2453) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 26, 2008
Pale yellow color, minimal head. Little body with skunk aromas and watery texture, some non-alcoholic beer taste, unpleasant grassy hopand fruits, dry aftertaste. In my opinion the diat beers are a separetad beer-style because of technologies, but this is a bad version of the style...
