RexTalionis (2337) - FINLAND - DEC 1, 2013
Bottled. Pours clear golden in color with a white head. Dishwasher, floral and dry hay in aroma. Taste is however more malty sweet, slightly buttery and crisp garden fruity. Nice.

Usko (160) - Bavaria, GERMANY - NOV 24, 2013
330ml bottle. Golden color, white head. Aroma is dominated by hop notes, a bit herbal, citral, some fruity notes, hints of malt. Finally a pils in its traditional way: Very decent signs of malty notes, mostly hoppy as described above. Nice bitterness, medium body, medium carbonation, here we go!

KimJohansen (10349) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2013
Poured clear golden with a medium sized white head. Not much in the nose apart from citric and floral hints. Sublime and refined flavor with noble floral hops. Clean and refreshing. Light fluffy mouthfeel. Refined but pronounced bitterness in the balanced dry finish. Lovely!

Kristall-König (2187) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - NOV 22, 2013
Würzig-herber Geruchseindruck, leicht grasig. Start süßlich-grasig. Mitte würziger mit leichter Malznote. Abgang süßlich, bitter-herb und trocken Gelungen.

pivnizub (8734) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - NOV 9, 2013
Bottle (purchased at "Abfüllzentrum Rittmayer", Hallerndorf): Golden to deep golden with a small and stable white head, moderate citrussy-hoppy nose; moderate dryish bitter-sweet flavour, light bodied and pretty soft; lingering dry herbal and citrussy-hoppy finish. Good and hoppy...

Idiosynkrasie (3587) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - OCT 28, 2013
330ml bottle. Clear pale golden colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Decent, minimally herbal, hoppy aroma. Taste is minimally herbal and piney bitter hoppy, cautiously peppery spicy, pale malty basis. There you go! Finally we have a handful of Pilseners with a multifaceted hop profile available from Germany, like Pyraser Hopfenpflücker or Tettnanger Keller-Pils. Hope springs eternal.

jonas (5592) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - OCT 12, 2013
Bottle, Danke Günther! Golden, low carbonation, eggshell lace. Fresh grassy and citric nose. Medium light malt base, good chewyness, dry in the back. Nice broad hop profile - grassy, citric, flowery, very wellbalanced and pleasant. Higjly aromatic, yet still moreish - a pleasure to drink. Bonuspoints for the geeky joke :-)

Shaney (2428) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - SEP 21, 2013
Mittelgelb, feinporige Blume. Florales Hopfenaroma mit etwas Citrus. Hopfiger Beginn, schön aromatisch, gefolgt von einem schlanken Malzkörper. Im Abgang angenehm bitter. Fazit: Frisches, hopfenbetontes Bier mit guter Süffigkeit.

Case (212) - GERMANY - AUG 28, 2013
Pours clear yellow with small white head. Interesting fruity-malty aroma with plums and grain. Taste is water and bread, faint malt sweetness and almost no bitterness. Disappointing.

Koelschtrinker (9999) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - AUG 26, 2013
Hopfiger Antrunk mit metallener Note, der weit weniger fruchtig ist, als es der Geruch verspricht. Herb fruchtig, metallern bleibend, trocken. Naja... 11/9/8/6/7/7
