ContemplateBeer (1540) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 14, 2014
Aroma: More lemony than grassy, pale, lightly crackery malts. Appearance: Pale, clear gold body with a foamy white head that settled into a white skin. Flavor: Lemony with some grass to follow; malts come in a bit more toward the finish and are lean but pleasant. Palate: Light body, slick texture, soft carbonation, bitter, dryish finish. Overall: A respectable baseline Pils.

DocJitsu (949) - Florida, USA - JUN 12, 2014
Pours a clear lager-golden color with barely even a white ring. Cinnamon, cinnamon, cinnamon on the nose. Wet, slick mouthfeel, that dries out just the slightest at the finish. Freezer burned cardboard ice cream box flavor. This is shameful.

Unter den Standardbieren noch eins der besseren. Optisch coole Flasche mit Relief und Alufolie.

Dacrza (516) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JUN 3, 2014
DATE REVIEWED: May 17, 2014... GLASSWARE: Ommegang footed... OCCASION: a day of home prep for Joey’s 4th birthday party... APPEARANCE: clean, light golden body; white head reams unevenly... AROMA: yeasts produce a bubble gum aroma; soft floral hops also make this pilsner an intriguing encounter--improves the pervasive zinc/copper metal scents... PALATE: soft start, hard finish; medium-bodied but lingers at the throat; pretty similar pilsner profile... TASTE: slightly fruity, with pear and apple, tempered by a water hose-like hard water finish; adequate, but not to be distinguished or sought after...OVERALLL: wasn’t sure where to place expectations--closer to Bitburger or Warsteiner; this beer carves out its own niche, a bit floral and yet with enough rough edges to add strength without disturbing the overall enjoyment of the beer....

Pyobon (918) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 22, 2014
(Bottle) Clear pale golden with tiny short-lived head. Disagreeable aroma of hay, cardboard and hints of grass. Light body with pleasant carbonation. Crisp hoppy bitterness overlaying a biscuity light malt. I wasn’t impressed to start with but this steadily grew on me. Not great but easily drinkable.

JeanDuteau (18) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 20, 2014
Good head with a nice tan/yellow colour. No real smell but it has a nice Pils taste with no nasty aftertaste. Only affects the front of the tongue. Overall, a nice summer beer that does not stand out but would be fine to serve to a mixed crowd.

drsandman (305) - New York, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Tap, can, bottle. Pours clear yellow gold with white head. Aroma of hay, pils malt, noble hop. Taste is crisp hop, sweet, dry grass. Drinkable, not special.

DrSilverworm (6369) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 16, 2014
On tap at Dutch’s. Clear golden color. Good off-white head, leaves great thicker lace and has good retention. A nice-looking pils. Light to medium body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. Bready malt flavor, light bit of metallic, little bit of a funk to it. Light bit of peppery. Light bitter taste, light to moderate sweet, some light spiciness. Solid pils, but there’s a little bit of weirdness going on in the taste. Just a slight bit of a cheaper, funkier quality to it. Still smooth, easy-drinking, and reasonably tasty though. Satisfying.

dr.dod (310) - Szeged, HUNGARY - MAY 14, 2014
500ml can. It is a quiet pilsner. Not too bitter, pale yellow coloured, small foam and so on. Not bad, but nothing special. A little pricy for an average pils.

Clear golden color with a nice head. Smell is very weak, also the taste. Not to bitter and drinkable average beer.
