MiP (13529) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2013
Bottle, 5.5%. Perfumy hop aroma. Clear shiny golden colour. Small white head. The flavour is also a little perfumy, sweetish, and quite bitter. A very clean beer.

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!

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - AUG 1, 2013
Bottle. Blonde. Hay and Tobacco in the aroma. Firm hay-like hopbitter flavor, somewhat overpowering the bready notes. Franconian pils at its best.

Koelschtrinker (9998) - 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

pivnizub (8750) - 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...

MoritzF (8402) - Bochum, GERMANY - MAY 31, 2013
(bottle, 33cl) Clear, golden colour with a blond and firm mid-sized foamy head. Herbal and slightly grassy hoppy aroma with mildly bready malt and a subtle touch of citrus and iodine. Not as bitter as expected but with an almost rounded malty sweetness, light to medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Delicately bready malt character, dry mouthfeel with present herbal hops; dry, bitter and slightly sweet finish, which is also a bit short. Nevertheless a likeable Pils. 18.V.13

3fourths (7885) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 8, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 20, 2013 Bottle at Brauerei Rittmayer Hallerndorf.
Rich and clear gold body. Medium-sized static head. Some effervescence.
Aroma hops are subdued when cold, so there’s a lot of rich toasted grain / bread character.
Hops open up with warmth and give the aroma a lot of juicy lemon oil character.
Medium sweet/dry, oily and rich malt texture.
Frothing, filling carbonation and alpha acids are very quenching.
Zesty citrus residual flavor.
Herbal / wildflower / dandelion character blossoms with more warmth.
Silky, oily and waxy texture throughout.
Minor hints of pine resin.
My notes say an excess of astringency and bitterness late. Those words don’t match what I remember.
