sayravai (4691) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 25, 2004
(Bottled, BBE 08/2004) Paleish lager color with big, quickly decaying, foamy and lacy head. Strong, yeasty and hoppy aroma - almost like in Belgian ales. Sweetish, malty and hoppy flavor. Oily, quite carbonated, medium-bodied palate. A nice, well-balanced, well above average pilsener.

Padron4KM (690) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - FEB 29, 2004
Clear golden color, with a frothy marshmallow white head. Sticky clumps of lace left behind. Aroma was yeasty and one dimensional. Flavor was crisp and clean, lemony with a mildly spicy finish.

Gmku (296) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - FEB 26, 2004
About as average for a pils as you'd ever want Germany to give. Head is medium and frothy and white, but diminishes quickly. Body is clear yellow. Moderate hops in aroma reminiscent of grass, herbs. Malt is light, slightly breadlike. Flavor is lightly sweet, some bitterness, a little more bitterness in the finish. Dry and watery feel. Quite hoppy, but I'd have preferred more malt, more heaviness. I'd pick Konigsbacher over this and Konigsbacher doesn't even have the worldwide rep this does.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - FEB 24, 2004
Gold yellow copper with a thin white cap of head and lacing. The aroma is like baby-food and peppers with a light crisp hop finish. the flavor is spicy, lightly malty, watery finish. This is a weird pils, almost like a jalapeno beer. Not too bad though.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 24, 2004
Flaxen pour with a thin head and some spotty lacing. Light pils malts, floral hops and a yeasty or wheat character. Some slight spices. Again with the light malts and hops, though it is a bit more spicy in the flavors. Medium malty body and a dry finish of bittering hops.

Very dry beer, superb with food. Also a great beer if you want to get hammered, nice flavor and dry finish make for easy drinkin.

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - JAN 22, 2004
Medium gold color with a moderate head, good lacing and a yeasty straw aroma. Medium bodied and very well balanced with a good hoppy backbone and dry finish. An excellent example of the style, this one reminded me of Jever but wasn't quite as hoppy.

DanielBrown (4147) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2003
Draught at the Criterion, Leicester. A plain, but tasty pils. This has a rich malty flavour, which is nicely balanced between sweet and dry, proving to be very refreshing. No aftertaste here.

PorterPounder (6292) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2003
Pleasant dark golden appearance with lots of bubble action. Fluffy white head with sticky lacing. Scent has a wort-like malty quality to it. Crisp, malty flavor with some bread and dough highlights. A little bit dry aftertaste though if I have to ding it for something. Overall though, a pleasing pilsener.

Sully (1377) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - OCT 28, 2003
I thought at first that this was out of date. With a date stamp of 0804 it should be ok. Cardboard and dusty nose with a definite off taste of sour malt. A shame. I promise to re-rate when I get a fresh one.
