Can thanks GT2. Hazy Golden pour with white head. Light Pilsner malt aromas. Straightforward Pilsner flavors.

crossovert (8853) - Illinois, USA - MAR 17, 2015
355ml can. Hazed golden pour. Smells like dank columbus hops. Flavor is aspriny, flavor like that shitty white medicine you got as a kid. Marmite, this is a horrible lager.

marcus (7307) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 12, 2015
12oz can from Corti Brothers. Pours clear golden with a massive white head and a floral citrus aroma. There is a hearty light malt flavor with a very nice hop profile. Well-balanced and easy to drink.

HonkeyBra (3676) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - MAR 7, 2015
12 oz can. Pours a bright and radiant gold with a medium white head. Aroma of fresh baked bread and hops. Flavor is bitter forward with sweet doughy pils malt towards the back end. Medium bodied with above average carbonation. Bitterness towards the finish. Pretty much a textbook example of a pils here. Nice.

TET (1994) - FINLAND - MAR 7, 2015
A hazy, light yellow beer with a quite big and blond head. Aroma is fresh, grapefruits and generic citrusfruits, water melon, weak hint of pils like grain and grass. Taste has grapefruits, some other fruits, hint of grass, strong bitterness that is slighlty grassy in the end. Medium bodied, quite strong carbonation, palate is smooth enough. Nice beer, the grapfruits are quite dominating but still the notes of pils are also there.

GT2 (9259) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAR 6, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2015 [ Can ][ 12oz ][ Texas Liquor ][ $3 ][ Pivo Pils Mega Stange ][ 3.5.15 ]
>> Pours sparkling clear deep gold, a little darker than expected, more Czech pils color. Thick, ultra rocky foam, fisheye retention. Perfect lacing. Nose is more in the vein of "unfresh import IPA" than pilsner. There is dried orange peel, kumquat, potpourri...but as it warms it gains almost pure honey biscuit/bread...thick enticing maltiness. Taste at the beginning had a grassy/metallic bite...as it warms it gains juicy kumquat, dense honey roll, and aggressive dry hop bite. Long, balanced finish. Really want to dish out higher scores for this one, but it isn’t fresh. Still, pilsner is just a superior beer style when not super fresh compared to IPA/APA.

ronaldtheriot (1472) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - MAR 3, 2015
Mikkeller Keeper has a thick, slightly off-white head, a semi-clear, bubbly gold appearance, with powdery sediment, throughout. Lacing is profoundly heavy. The aroma is interesting- sweet, bready, yeasty, and even some cream cheese cake icing (in other words, it smells like a cream ale). Taste is of sweet, bitter, bready, yeasty lager, and the mouthfeel is medium and rustic. Mikkeller Keeper finishes somewhat dirty, but quite drinkable, and I thought it was remarkable how it took on a cream ale aspect, as it settled down. RJT

cargo150 (954) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 2, 2015
Couleur dorée translucide avec un col blanc assez résistant. En bouche levure pils, céréales, fruits tropicaux. Très bien balancé. Une des meilleures Pilsner a mon gout! Très raffraichissante en meme temps d’etre complexe pour une pilsner!
