Mart (211) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 18, 2007
Canette (avant 12/12/2007). Arome faible de malt et houblon. Couleur jaune clair, mousse épaisse, qui s’estompe faiblement, laisse traces sur le verre. Beaucoup d’amertume avec un léger goût malté. Effervescence modérée. Très bonne pils.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 13, 2007
Tasted 13/03/2007. 330mlb bottle from Rumble’s Wellington. Pours a very pale gold, bright, with a fading white head. Mild nose - a mixture of slightly stale grainy malt, spicy herbal hops and a soft creamed honey. Dry in the mouth, though with a decent weight. Grainy malt notes give way to a strong herbal bitterness, a little steely, with spicy edges that hint of rocket. Quite bitter in the finish and lingering on quite a while. More honey notes come through late, with further herbal hints - slightly floral this time. A little tired but decently bitter at least. Not at it’s best, admittedly, but I doubt this would make many top ten pilsner lists, in a blind tasting, even on it’s best day.

Hoser (370) - Cowtown, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 9, 2007
Clean crisp hoppy and unfortunately the best pilsner we can get in Western Canada.Page 377 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide and the first I had I bought on public transportation in Germany. Only 282 of his Classic 500 Brews to go and I might have one in my hand now. Opinions of two beer geeks I respect just because every beer geek can tell you all about the yelllow bubblys. Oakes (5724), Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada Date: Nov 9, 2002 2.5 Aroma Appearance Flavor Palate Overall 4/10 2/5 6/10 2/5 11/20 Clear gold; big but quickly dissipating head; aroma is actually a little on the skunky side; fairly bitter profile w/ grassy accent; thin body more reminiscent of a macro than a lean & mean German pils. A bit watery in the finish. Not bad, but considering that it is often spoken of in the same terms as Jever, Bitburger and Wernesgruner, well, it isn’t on the same terms as those beers. presario (1644), Calgary, Alberta, Canada Date: 12/7/2002 Updated: Sep 1, 2006 3.5 Aroma Appearance Flavor Palate Overall 7/10 4/5 7/10 3/5 14/20 Crisp. Clean. Nice starting head. Definate hop taste. A little sweetness. A decent Pilsener and a solid beer. An extra appearance point for the cool 4oz stein. Victory Pils is still number one give me the hops.

Pale golden yellow, medium head no retention. Weak aroma (malt, hops). Flavor is a unique blend of malt and hops, very noticeable and I wonder if it is the brewing process that makes a difference here. Lager or Pilsner? Definitely pilsner. Has a subdued silken sweetness at work yet the finish is very dry. Good brew!

faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - MAR 5, 2007
Bottle. Yellow colour. Big fluffy average lasting head. Aroma of malts, and hops with a touch of some fruitiness. Flavour of hops, some maltiness with a nice crispy dry finish. Good average lasting dry hoppy aftertaste. The East German Goverment put a lot of money in to this brewery keeping as an export brewery to show the rest of the world the great GDR (DDR) beer. And the positive things is that the beer still is great.

doubelknv3 (1056) - Illinois, USA - MAR 3, 2007
Malty nose, but almost smelled a bit like freezer burn. Pale golden with a nice creamy head. Full bodied with notes of malts in the front and hops on the finish. Fairly skunky, mild bitter finish.

Maria (10190) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 18, 2007
Tenerife 2006. Straw with a huge head. The aroma is neutral with a weak touch of hops and malt. The flavour has a nice bitterness, but that is the only thing it can offer. 1567

ALLOVATE (2683) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 14, 2007
There is a fair deal of history behind this beer as well as this brewer, but seeing it on the shelves of liquor stores vying for sales alongside the likes of Crown Lager and Hahn Premium is a sad old sight. Anyway, this pours a pale, dull gold with surmountable, eddying bubbles heaving up a wickedly fluffy, rocky white crown that grew it’s inch and held there to daub a lot of froth in its wake. Wheaty, dry, palest malt nose, with a piercing blend of chives and celery, cracked pepper and spring onion. Smells like a fresh toasted herb bread. Honeyish sweet start in the mouth, tangy on the sides yet mostly dry through the rest and into the swallow. Grainy, dusty, malty base, peppermint edge in back being generously bitter and peppery as it slips passed the tonsils. Quite crisp and very clean for the length. Body is quite light with a pleasantly soft mouthfeel. Easy to drink, and quite a surprise of a brew. Average, though decent, balanced and one that simply does the job!!!

Clean flow,slight hop impact.A typical Geman lager.A perfect lawn mower brew.Bravo to all Germans who support their LOCAL brewerys.Worth seeking in the Dresden area.4.8% is the perfect alc/vol.If u go higher the beer is too sweet.My cousin always has 5 cases in the garage in Arnsdorf.

Rynoplasty (700) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 2, 2007
Pours golden with a huge foamy head. Aroma is faint but of pale malts. Taste is more malty and seems closer to a helles than a pilsner. Either way decent beer, but doesn’t really stand out in any way.
