Ungstrup (30397) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 17, 2003
Very light malty aroma with notes of grains and yeast. The color is a slightly hazy dark yellow and it has a fantastic head - very lively. The flavor is malty sweet with notes of bread, straws, aroma hops, and yeast. The end is hoppy and very bitter - especially for a pilsener - it ends on a lemony sourness with oils from hops lingering on the tongue. The flavor is very complex - especially for a pilsener - but the compostition is not great on my tastebuds - to sour an end, and too weak a body.

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - NOV 7, 2003
Hazy golden color, well carbonated with a splendid head and a sourdough lemongrass aroma. Light to medium bodied with a fizzy mouthfeel, some caramel and bubblegum sweetness up front, turning citrusy and almost astringent, with a slight bitterness at the end. An unusual beer, seemed fresh and aged at the same time but not at all stale. I thought it really improved as it warmed some.

thehoff (596) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 30, 2003
Pilsner color with various floating yeasties. Thin white head. Smells like sweet slightly skunked beer. Very nice flavor. Slight hops bitterness, very smooth mouthfeel.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 17, 2003
Hazy wheat color body with a large colony of tiny suspended particulates and a sudsy white head. Fragrant grassy hop aroma overlying butterscotch, fruit, and nuts. Flavor is less appealing with a non-hop bitterness in the finish that tastes off. Disappointing in the end.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - SEP 23, 2003
I think the bottle had sat too long. Still had a good hop aroma, mixed with grass. Cloudy yellow beer with a white head. Malt had notes of bottle aging.

Shag (2684) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - SEP 20, 2003
Im fairly impressed with this pilsner. My 2nd pilsner of late that's in a brown bottle, why can't everyone do that? I think it makes a difference not having that skunky flavor as part of the experience. Aroma is lemony with some hops and straw present. Flavor is slightly bitter and refreshing all at the same time. This is a nice lighter beer.

Cashazza (217) - Morganville, Maryland, USA - SEP 20, 2003
I'm not much for lagers or pilsners, but this pils is not so bad at all -- cloudy yellow with light malt flavor and a distinctly hoppy bitterness.

As far as pilseners go, imho Germany does it best and Pinkus is one of my favorites. I gave it a "5" for apeparance because this is what a pilsener beer should look like, nice cloudy golden color with a nice head and lacing.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 3, 2003
50 cL bottle, pint glass, 48 degrees. Fizzy, white head is average sized and quickly shrinks, but doesn't fully quit. Body is a hazy, deep yellow-amber color with many tiny particles and soda like carbonation. Moderate flowery, grassy hops are balanced nicely by cookie and toasted light bread malt. Hint of white grapes in the aroma. Moderately sweet, lightly bitter, lightly acidic flavor becomes a lightly sweet, moderately bitter, moderately acidic finish. Long fresh cut grass finish. Medium-light body, fizzy carbonation, watery texture. The bottom line is: pleasant, refreshing, just not incredibly interesting.
