Maria (10176) - Thisted, DENMARK - AUG 16, 2011
It’s light golden with a huge, creamy head, and the aroma is weak with notes of straw, malt and grain. The flavour is moderately sweet with notes of straw, malt, cabbage/cardboard, and the finish is harsh and slightly dry.

pivnizub (9005) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - SEP 3, 2006
Bottle: Pale golden, very stable big fluffy head; clean sweet-malty nose with a mild, but distinctive floral hoppy touch; soft MF, light to medium bodied, the distinctive bitter taste is well balanced by a light malty body; soft, aromatic bitter-sweet finish, lingering a bit. A fine classic Pils, that really deserves this name...................

MoritzF (8590) - Bochum, GERMANY - JUL 6, 2006
(bottle, with thanks to pivnizub) Clear, golden colour with a foamy white medium, stable head. Slightly dusty and sweet strawy malty aroma with herbal hops. Light bitter flavour, light to medium body, moderately carbonated mouthfeel. Strawy malty taste with a touch of honey and light notes of vegetables; medium-dry, light bitter finish with shy notes of hops. Not very challenging.

3fourths (8228) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 25, 2014
Draft at Meinel Brau in Hof. Clear pale gold with a fine white head. Lemon-y and minerallic and balanced, it’s less expressive in the nose than the Zwickelpils, but is noticeably "cleaner" in it’s lemon oil Noble hop presentation. Lightly sweet, medium-low bitterness, juicy and hoppy with a trace off-note of laundry detergent. Has good malt richness but the carbonation is just a tad fizzy / rough.

Quack-Duck (8065) - Down South, GERMANY - MAR 1, 2011
bottle from Landbierdealer. Clear pale yellow, large white head. Lovely hoppy nose. Light-bodied, elegant malty base with lots of romatic hops - like digging into a heap of fresh hops. Not too bitter, yet very aromatic, with a slightly resiny touch. A very well crafted exaple of the style.

Somewhat dusty nose. Pale golden, no visible carbonation, well-formed rocky head. Stale dusty hop flavors, a bit malt, bitter finish. Lightish body, oily mouthfeel. Uninspired pils.
