stevoj (3307) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Aroma seems off, wet newspaper smell. Appearance is decent, thick airy head, but taste leaves a lot to be desired. Not much character except for a small hoppy bitternesson the palate.

hauxe (176) - Butzbach, GERMANY - FEB 7, 2016
Pours gold into the bottle with a rich, creamy head. Decent lacing. Aroma is a bit malty, and more skunky than I would like, though the skunkiness does fade. Medium bodied and well carbonated. Flavor is grassy, hoppy, grainy, rather rough around the edges. Dry lightly bitter finish. No surprises here. Another decent if unexciting German pilsener.

kidmartinek (4161) - austin, Texas, USA - DEC 22, 2015
Clear gold color. Big foamy white lace head. A little gummy on the palate with gummy, bland bitterness dominating the flavor. It’s still cool and thin. Finishes bitter and a little dry.

budedou (662) - Saint Etienne, FRANCE - DEC 7, 2015
Pours a nice golden yellow color with a minimal fizzy white head. Aromas of grains, straw, hops, and a hint of fruit. Flavor is a nice crisp pilsner taste. Starts grainy with touches of pepper and fruit and finishes with a mellow hop.

BeerViking (3605) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2015
Can from Rewe, pours deep gold with a fast-settling head and a grassy corny nose. Dry-bitter, a bit thin bodied and one-dimensional. I’ve had worse, but this is a bog-standard mass-market Pils.

GoufCustom (1302) - HONG KONG - NOV 10, 2015

500ml green bottle bought at Great Food Hall in Pacific Place, Admiralty.

Pale golden yellow colour; Two finger head and crumpety white foam which lasts for 3 minutes; Excellent sticky lacing with quite active small carbonation; Slightly pungent aroma of Pils malt, with initial light skunk (gone in 1 minute), floral, light pineapple ester, sugar, strong bread, thin lemon and grass; Med to strong sweet taste of malt, with initial strong metallic, strong floral, light fruity ester, sugar, light bread, strong lemon, strong bitter hops and sharp grass; Mid to light body. Crisp and slightly slick palate; Mouth feel is pretty good Pils maltyness in a lean dry background. Very hoppy with strong presence of floral and some fruity ester. Sweet but balanced by equally strong, German Pils-level lemony bitterness. Pretty good!... Hoppiness is quick light skunk, floral, light pineapples, thin lemon and grass in nose. Floral, strong lemon and sharp grass in taste. Bitterness is very strong, German-Pils level for a lasting, very high-astringent sweet and bitter finish; Quite dry after taste. Sweet and very hoppy to mouth.

Comments: Archetypical German Pils, malty, somewhat lean but flowery and very hoppy and bitter. A little heavy on the sweet side but otherwise quite bold and beautiful for the style. Pretty nice!

UXO (1132) - CANADA - NOV 4, 2015
Appearance: clear pale straw, one finger of rocky white head, good retention and patchy minimal lacing. (3/5) Aroma: grainy pale malt, grassy. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, mild bitter. (6/10) Light body, lively to moderate carbonation, crisp dry and astringent bitter finish. (3/5) I like the sharpness of the finish, which comes across almost as fresh-cut grass, but other than that, nothing remarkable. Pretty simple and straightforward, with not a lot to distinguish it from any other number of pale Euro legs or Czech style pilseners. Perfectly OK with supper, though. (12/20)

Aus der Dose. Trifft geübt den Geschmack eines charakterlosen deutschen Pils. Ohne jegliche Ecken und Kanten. Okay, aber austauschbar.
