Pors a slightly hazy gold with minimal head. Aroma is actually very nice with some raspberry tart notes with the hops and yeast. The taste in the other hand is more of the doughy yeast flavor with a somewhat mild addition of yeast and hops. I guess it is a halfway decent pilsener but I have never really cared too much for the style in the first place.

Very light hoppy beer. Extremely average but how high are pilsner a related anyway.

Poured from a refrigerated bottle received from weihenheizen. Thanks! Pours a darker than expected gold, on the verge of copper with a steady white head. The aroma is kind of sweet and caramelly with a caramunich quality to it. Taste is somewhat sweet, while remaining mostly inoffensive. Overall, it isn’t bad.

Bottle. Bready malt aroma. Straw color with a large off-white head. Sweet grainy malt flavor wit a subdued grassy bitter finish. Light crisp body. Nice balance between the sweetness and hops.

Toffee. Caramel malt aroma. Golden yellow with large white head. Mildly sweet barley malt and lightly bitter hay hops flavor. Nice easy drinking beer.

Bottle from DiarmaidBHK - pours a clear old gold with a white head, some lacing. Boring.

DeputyAndy (632) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 16, 2012
Bottle. Pours a pale amber with some head. Cereal nose with very subdued hops. Coppery taste throughout the bottle detracts from what is otherwise a decent session beer.

Mild pils-ish aroma of crackers and flatbread. Pretty grainy. Light orange, good initial head followed by lace. Tastes sweet in a way where malt is stressed while hops could be used. Given that, it’s certainly more Vienna than pilsener. A good, crisp lighter beer for sessions.
