Light pleasant nose, pale gold color, frothy white head. Quick sweet malt with some honey, citrus in the middel. Lacks hops and bitter overall. Thin, light. OK but quite uninteresting.

Grima (2230) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - NOV 11, 2012
The beer in the glass is pearly golden yellow, with a high, creamy white head. It smells sweet hoppy. The beer starts hoppy fresh, aromatic, with a distinct bitter note in the background. The finish is sweet-malty, slight grainy, with some aroma hops. Great german Pils!!

Mortlach (1956) - Rome, ITALY - JUN 2, 2016
Gravity fass @Fass&Cask (Rome). Pours in a ceramic glass, big and persistent foam. Aroma of malt, milk bread, cereal, honey, hay. Flavour is a bit unbalanced, medium malty with a low bitterness, quite clean. Light body, light carbonation. A bit basic.

ippopotamo36 (1765) - Rome, ITALY - JUN 1, 2016
Gravity keg at Fass&Cask in Rome-Italy. No description of the appearance, served in a ceramic glass. Nose: rustic, milled barley, chicken farm. Mouth: bread, the bitterness is there a bit too shy and mild, peppery finish and again rustic maltiness. Liked it! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ihave found that most Germanpils are close in the same.They all use the purity law.This was straw in color with a malty nose.Light mouthfeel with a slight bitter finish.

Moravius (1130) - Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 14, 2015
Flasche (50 cl) von Hopfen & Malz, Berlin. - Goldgelb, klar; üppige Schaumkrone. - In der Nase flache Malzsüße, milde grasige Hopfennoten, stumpfe Hopfenextrakt-Töne. - Im Antrunk etwas zu prominente Malzsüße, dazu stumpf grasige Hopfenherbe, aber auch schöne Zitronenöl-Noten. Etwas milder rezent als üblich. Im Abgang wenig aromatische, etwas schroff grasige Herbe vom Hopfenextrakt. Unschön stumpf-bitterer, trockener Nachtrunk. - Kein Klassiker, nur ein zweitklassiges Pils. Könnte wesentlich besser sein, wenn es nicht vom Hopfenextrakt verdorben würde.

Bionda limpida con schiuma bianca vaporosa. Molto semplice ma godibile, con un buon malto accompagnato da una leggera amarezza. Carbonazione media.
