3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a great beer when it's fresh. I could do without the green bottles though. Just had one recently that was really impressive. Good firm body, enough hops to give that tasty tingle but well balanced with rich malt. This pilsner has the color of a good Munich helles...a shade or two darker than most pilsners. Nice.

Good crisp clean beer. Does tend to start a little skunky but never the less this good stuff. However, I would like to try it fresh from the brewery so that it could be tasted before it has to make that long journey to the States.

Nothing special - Straw yellow, thin and slightly sour with off flavors. My bottle started to skunk though, so I may rerate sometime with a fresher sample.

I tried this beer because Buster Poindexter mentioned it in THE WORST BEER I'VE EVER HAD. Great song. OK beer. Nothing extraordinary. I just prefer more powerful flavor in my brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2004 straw pour. yellow, small head... clean, farm aroma. the greatest bite of grass i ever had... nice! i don't mind at all. time to fly to the source and drink it fresh, damn it... i hear too many good things about this, but it's failed me everytime. UPDATE: still, a good brew. the grass bite had some metal blades this time around, and it's golden with big bubbles. the head is relatively small and white. the aroma matches its flavor in near equivalence. hmm, it's good. the palate could be worked on as well. it seemed a bit sharp, although it had some pleasant creaminess to it.

Classic pilsner but a little too deiicate for my tastes. Bright gold color and nice hops in the nose. Pretty good balance in this beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2004 Recommended to me by a good friend as a standard for pilsners. Good stuff. The aroma was pretty skunky the first time I had it, but upon more recent sampling, I found it to be quite pleasant. The appearance was predictably light; it poured a fairly attractive pure gold shade with a medium white head and lacing. The flavor was full and hoppy, with fairly little bitterness. Amazingly full of flavor for such a light, crisp, refreshing brew.

the original pilsner, the yardstick by which to judge other pilsners, after trying this you'll realise why so many lagers dont deserve the pilsner or pils label they insist they deserve. exellently hopped and flavoured.

Too much of a skunky aroma, and watery yellow color, but good flavor...bad aftertaste though.
