Slightly cloudy orange golden pour. Fluffy white head. Pretty. Crisp and refreshing. Hoppy yet slightly sweet. Bread, citrus, stones. Finishes clean, dry and bitter. Great lacing as she goes.

Ceebs25 (503) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - JUN 3, 2011
11.2 oz bottle. A very high quality pils here, with some nice subtleties, balance, and full flavor for a light and refreshing brew. Aroma of sharp, spicy grass and herb, along with crackers, watermelon fruit, honey, and pale grains. A fresh and quite pleasant nose, though fairly light. Pours with a thick, clumpy bright white head, and great lacing/retention. Also, a fair amount of carbonation, a fuller looking body for a pilsner, and a bright golden color. It goes down prickly/peppery to start with a fair amount of carbonation, then smooths out through the finish, bringing a plentiful noble hop bitterness as well. Great balance, with a strong, though flavorful bitter profile, while still maintaining easy drinkability. Notes of herbs and grass, buttery crackers, nutty pale grains, bitter fruity esters, and more noble herb and grass. In the world of pils/lagers, this is top notch in my opinion. Well done Mikkeller.

BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 26, 2011
[330ml bottle, The Bottle Shop, Canterbury] Pours a clear deep golden colour with a thin head that reduces to a lacing. Slight sediment traces left in the bottle. Bitter, malty aromas, some Saaz spiciness. On the palate it’s quite strong, but with a clean finish at the end. The overall flavour is bitter biscuity malt, there’s a high level of carbonation that lifts it, with a dry finish. I didn’t get much fruit from it, but I guess the dryness won over. Pretty much down the rails pilsner [26052011]

markwise (5096) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - MAY 25, 2011
Thanks to IBrew2or3 for the share. Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is sweet malt, grassy, herbacious hops, and a vague sweetness. Flavor is similar with some earthy, grassy, and herb-like hops complimenting the sweetness of the malt. It is an interesting pils, to be sure.

Martinus (4362) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - MAY 23, 2011
Pale, quite hazy orange yellow beer, frothy white head. Very enthusiastic, already when opening the bottle. Aroma of elderflower, malt, hops, some honey, like orange-blossom honey. Quite floral. Some citrussy hops, not in the foreground but adding a pretty nice layer. Flavour quite sweet, honey, malt, rather strong hops for a pilsener. Some lingering sweetness, then turning bone dry with a pleasant lingering floral hoppy finish. Well done Mikkeller & Proefbrouwerij, you just made pilsener sexy again. (from 33cL bottle)

From Voldby, DK. Bottled, 140511. Light amber with white head. Aroma of hay and spices. Flavor with malt and some fruit.

berlinoise2go (686) - NORWAY - MAY 14, 2011
Bottle at People’s, Oslo. Fairly standard pilsner look. Nose indicates a pilsner with a somewhat enhanced hoppiness. The strength of this brew I find midtaste, with a lovely hop bitterness - refined, crisp and well-balanced, probably the best Czech-style lager I’ve tasted.

SpringsLicker (3386) - Tennessee, USA - APR 28, 2011
The body pours clear gold and throws up an average sized white head. Spicy herbal hop aroma that approaches minty. Lightly bitter flavor that has some dryness in the finish. Very nicely done - wish it was priced the same as American Micros.

Shared bottle at Cardinal. Hazy golden with a fingerthick white creamy head leaving good lacing. Apricot, herbs and flowers in the aroma. Light body. Light bitter and light sweet. Long bitter and dry finish. Synthetic. Juicy and flatish.

maneliquor (3482) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 12, 2011
Had on tap at Sail and Anchor. Not bad at all. Has a medium bitterness to it. Everything you should expect from a pilsner with maybe a little more hops but nothing over the top
