Benzai (8227) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, - FEB 14, 2013
Bottle shared with Dutchdrebus. Clear golden color, small white head that disappears quickly. Smell malts and grains. Taste malts, lightly grainy, a bit sweet. Low body, low to medium carbonation. Nah not really good imo.

Scrapersnbeer (1481) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 16, 2014
Equally grainy and hop filled aroma. Looks like any pils. It is malty for a pils but finishes with a mineral-metal bitterness. Dry and sort of crunchy. Classic German Pils. This used to be a designated beer style, until RB decided it wasn’t.

loco_gallego (58) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 13, 2014
Blonde pâle. Mousse blanche. Carbonation faible-moyenne. Arômes malt-orge, on sent la fermentation. Un légère amertume en début de bouche, puis ça tourne au sucré. Pas très persistent, mais je n’apprécie pas la fin de bouche.

Alengrin (1719) - BELGIUM - SEP 1, 2014
Typical northern German Pilsener with a label originally dating from 1956, to celebrate the brewery’s 50th birthday. Snow white, medium thick, creamy head leaving nice lacing; pure golden blonde colour, very little sparkling. Malt sweetish aroma, grainy, peppery and flowery hops; neutral taste, medium to strong carbo, mineral-like, grainy sweetishness, ending in an assertive, long, dry, peppery hop bitterness which sticks for quite a long time, even for this substyle.

Aroma of pale malts, grain, slight citrus. Flavour is malty and grainy with a light bitter finish. Average Pilsner.

Travlr (11842) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 21, 2014
Draft at Bierborse fest in Koeln. Very pale yellow color. The aroma and the flavor are also a bit pale, as is the body.

Joakgust (888) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 16, 2014
Bottle. Clear pale yellow beer with a large white head. Aroma is spicy with notes of grains, citrus, herbs and hay. Flavor is malty with notes of citrus, herbs, grass and hay. Refreshing and very balanced.

floydian1 (965) - FNQ, Australia, - AUG 10, 2014
500ml bottle @ Conner’s Corner, Bingil Bay, FNQ. This is a decent German-style pilsner with grainy malts up front and a decent grassy dry hop bitterness to the finish that lingers. Quite light bodied for ABV with a soft carbonation making for easy sessionability. Enjoyable.

massingasetta (242) - München, GERMANY - JUL 16, 2014
Einen "Tannenzpfle" hast Du noch nicht getrunken? Nun doch. Das Bier sieht wirklich toll aus im Glas. Geruch und Optik ist klasse. Es richt wie ein Pils riechen muss und auch die Schaumkrone sieht klassisch aus. Einstieg/Antrunk sind frisch, leicht süsslich und die Kombination von Malz und einen getreidigen, leicht kräuterischen Geschmack ist gut erkennbar. Aber dann... aus dem nichts kommt im Nachgeschmack eine Bitterkeit und beim ersten Schluck einen extremen metallischen Beigeschmack. Habe ich eben am Flaschenhals etwas Alu mitgenommen? Beim zweiten und dritten Schluck ist es nicht mehr so intensiv, aber es war derart unangenehm - es hat mich schier umgehauen. Was war das den? Fazit: das Bier mit den Alu Kinnharken - vielleicht bedarf dies nochmal ein Re-Rezension.
