ogivlado (6157) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 16, 2015
Bottled 500ml. -from Rudat Dortmund. I’ve spent last few years chasing for Pinkus Müller beers and now when I finally found them all three are just average (Original, Hefe Weizen and Pils). Pitty. Pale golden coloured, medium sized white head, mild grainy nose. Sweetish malty, touch of grain and caramel with notes of hops in the finish. In one word...boring.

fidelis83 (2120) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - APR 13, 2015
Cloudy gold pour with a one finger chunky off white head. Aroma is cereal bread, spicy hops, light floral hops and some cooked apples. Flavor is toast sweet cereal, cooked apples, toasted flour, light oxidization floral hops and some weird fruity notes that definitely don’t work well. Light to medium body, creamy to syrupy entry, light to medium, blanketing and sharp carbonation and drier, chalkier, but creamy and kinda gloopy finish, it sounds weird but it kinda works here. Weird stuff, not all bad, but weird, and really fruity for a pils.

Münster visit - Pinkus brewpub tasting. In a tall flute glass. Classic and good pils but nothing to write home about, as they say.

TheCaptMatey (169) - Ohio, USA - MAR 15, 2015
Poured a hazed yellow/gold colour with a thin white head that left thin lacing. Aroma is sweet grains, spiced hops and grass. Flavor is lemon, sweet biscuit malt, and bitter herbal hops. Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Low bitterness on a sweet finish. Fairly crisp, otherwise.

pottygok (518) - Ohio, USA - MAR 9, 2015
Aroma: Skunky aromas with sweet malty edges. Appearance: Cloudy gold with rich white head. Taste: Medium sweetness straight through. Palate: Light body, slick texture, soft carbonation, sweet finish. Overall: A bit too sweet and saccharine for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Scipio (749) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - FEB 3, 2015
Pours a yellow that is a bit cloudy, with a medium, bubbly, though rapidly receding head. The aroma contains grain, wheat, grass, and is slightly metallic. The taste is solidly in favor of corn and grain. There is some wheat flavors, along with some lemon. Some spicy hints are found as well. Short aftertaste of wheat. Lighter in body, more thin in texture than anything else, but with a fair amount of carbonation. This one isn’t for me.

Bottle. Not crazy about this style. Gold color, slightly cloudy. Aroma is hay, straw. Taste is grains, bitter.

Moravius (722) - Berlin, GERMANY - JAN 23, 2015
Flasche (50) von Denn’s Biomarkt, Berlin. - Goldgelb, klar. - In der Nase frischer, leicht grasig-scharfer Hopfen mit zitronigen Noten, ein wenig Fenchel und schwach muffige, schwefelige Fehltöne wie von Hopfenextrakt. - Antrunk sehr schlank, zunächst leicht säuerlich mit zitronigem Hopfen, danach auch grasig. Malz ist kaum zu erschmecken, höchstens ein Anflug von Weißbrot. Gut rezent, eher dünnes Mundgefühl, leicht kreidig. Im Abgang ordentlich krautig-grasiger Hopfen aber auch eine dumpfe Note wie von Hopfenextrakt. Mild bitterer, trockener, ein wenig schal wirkender Nachtrunk. - Beherzt aber etwas ungeschickt gehopftes Pils mit recht dünnem Malzkörper. Nicht ganz überzeugend. Pinkus Special ist wesentlich fülliger, runder und aromatischer.

Dogbrick (9085) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 22, 2015
Sample from bottle at Winking Lizard (as "Ur-Pils"). Pours a clear bright golden color with a medium white head that evaporates quickly to a film. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt and grassy hops. Light-bodied with flavors of biscuit malt, herbal hops and a bit of fruit. The finish is mildly bitter with a short grassy hop aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

sturmthis (788) - Ohio, USA - JAN 8, 2015
500ml bottle. Hazy golden color with fluffy white head. Sweet malt aroma. Really smooth and not overpowering with the floral or grassy taste of many pils. Really enjoy this.
