Usko (161) - 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!

jfb (3758) - Freising, GERMANY - AUG 23, 2013
(bottle) pours a clear golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of lavender, ripe apples, straw, honeymelon, light peppermint, barnyard and herbal hops. flavour is mostly the same, quite floral, with more lavender, some honey, herbal hops, white bread, thyme and a light-bitter finish.

jonas (5614) - 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 :-)

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!

Quack-Duck (7793) - Down South, GERMANY - JUN 17, 2013
bottle, thank you pivnizub! Clear golden colour, huge white head, very persistant. Lovekly aromatic hoppy nose, grassy and resiny. Pleasantly bitter on a malty base, with aromatic hops that add hints of grass, hay, lemon zest and flowers. Very nice and with its own character.

kapusil (588) - HUNGARY - APR 2, 2014
0.33l bottle. Clear golden body, long lasting white head, lively carbonation. Bready aroma with a strong fruity character (black currant, orange and peach) and even some coriander. Very unusual for a German pils that’s for sure. The coriander and the black currant are also present in the taste with a decent grassy hop bitterness. This is a really awesome beer.

massingasetta (213) - München, GERMANY - AUG 1, 2014
"Das Bier riecht ja gar nicht bitter", war mein erster Gedanken. Die Überdosis Bitterkeit bleibt auch beim Einstieg aus. Dieses Bier ist im Körper recht herb und auch der Abgang verändert sich nicht vom Körpereigenschaft, aber das Bier ist einfach nicht sonderlich bitter. Jedoch finde ich das Bier ansprechend. Das Herbe hält lange an und wird bei jedem Schluck mehr betont. Ein Bier wo man sich freut es getrunken zu haben.

3fourths (7976) - 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.
