Embrouille (2831) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 10, 2014
Bottled. Medium bodied. Balanced. Clean and true to the style. Unfortunately, I didn’t take any detailed notes. Quality beer for sure.

Idiosynkrasie (4661) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JAN 10, 2014
330ml bottle. Clear golden colour with average to huge, thick, creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Pale malty aroma, a touch of hay, decent floral hop note. Taste is pale malty with very subtle sweetness, mild floral hoppy overtones. No blowoff at first sight, you have to invest a little advertence to notice the subtle strengths of this well balanced Pilsener.

mile (3339) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 19, 2013
Bottle. Light golden, hazy, small to average and fully diminishing head. Light to moderate, lightly malty – grainy and lightly sweetish aroma, light floral fruitiness and light hoppyness. Body is medium, malty – lightly grainy and lightly sweetish flavor, light caramel and light floral fruitiness - honey, light hoppyness. Finish is average, malty - lightly grainy and lightly sweetish, light floral fruitiness and light hoppyness. Pils with floral fruitiness and caramel - too sweet pils for me.

lusikka (6949) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 10, 2013
330 ml bottle.
Pours a slightly cloudy golden colour with a small head. Aroma of grainy malts, mild floral notes and honey. Flavour of grassy and herbal hoppiness, green tea, honey, grains and mild caramel sweetness. Light bodied, smooth mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Refreshing and drinkability is just about right. More please.

Vinx (81) - ITALY - NOV 7, 2013
A little murky for its style, it shows off a very pronounced hop aroma with citric and floreal slight notes. Very bitter and masculine it isn’t however cloying but rather drinkable. A very good beer but I still prefer the Tipopils by Birrificio Italiano which is more complex and articulated (and dry-hopped).

Wanja (689) - GERMANY - NOV 6, 2013
0.33 l bottle from the brewpub in Laaber... Clear light golden color, average head... Intensive hop aroma of fruity grapefruit, refreshing and quite alcoholy... Fruit Pilsener taste, more like an amazing IPA... Perfect beer...

superspak (3221) - Michigan, USA - OCT 12, 2013
500 ml bottle into lager glass, best before 12/14/2013. Pours lightly hazy golden straw color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky white head with incredible retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts the whole glass; beautiful appearance. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a lot of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big lemon, pear, apple, cracker, bread, floral, pepper, grass, light honey, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance of malt, hop, and yeast ester notes; with great strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, bread, cracker, light honey, floral, grass, pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of light fruits, cracker, bread, light honey, floral, grass, pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a bit. Very nicely balanced hop, malt, and yeast ester flavors; with good robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth and crisp mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.9%. Overall this is an excellent pilsner style! All around great balance of hop, malt, and yeast ester notes; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
