Douberd (3298) - 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.

Papsoe (25073) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Pale golden with a neat little head. Lovely fresh hop aroma, and the hops also dominate the flavour although this really isn’t very bitter. This may be a low-carb diet pilsener, but it’s actually a decent brew of good quality by any standard. 170101

grikmok (132) - Little Rock, Arkansas, USA - FEB 2, 2008
Poured to a golden yellow beer with a slight thin head. Heavy carbonated and not very flavorful. Finish was slightly bitter that didn’t compliment the overall taste of the beer.

Bamsen78 (4454) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear pale golden with small white head. Clear aroma of yeast and hops. Bitter flavour of hops with pronounced notes of yeast. Dry, bitter finish. Low carbonation, but not as low as stated on the label. Nothing really impressive but drinkable.

gueuze (641) - - JAN 16, 2014
Geruch nach Malz, ein wenig metallisch. Der Geschmack ist eher enttäuschend. Wirklich wässrig, richtig trocken. Am Ende dann bitter, bitterer als manch anderes Pils.
