Quack-Duck (9110) - 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.

3fourths (9054) - 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.

pivnizub (10019) - 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...................

ippopotamo36 (1569) - 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
