Benzai (11852) - 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.

Velkyal (318) - Gordonsville, Virginia, USA - FEB 11, 2016
Ever since Kardinal Hall opened here in Charlottesville, this has been my go-to beer, by the litre of course. It pours a delightful rich yellow, bordering on golden, topped with a good firm inch of driven white foam. The aroma is classic noble hops, floral, grassy, touches of lemon, in the background is a cereal note. Taste is lightly bready, with a touch of digestive biscuit, and a good solid hop bite, like a sweet lemon, with a clean bitterness that demands more drinking. Body is medium, and the drinkability is superb. If there is a finer German Pilsner on planet earth, I am yet to drink it.

SDalkoholic (2301) - Linda Vista, California, USA - FEB 10, 2016
Bottle from Sprout’s: Poured a sparkling gold with rapid rising carbonation bubbles while a thin white foam cap rested on top. Aroma is subtle and has harmonious balance between the floral hops that suggest a hint of spicing while a minor nose of wheat or hay like malt evens things out. Where the aroma feel short, the flavor of the does not. Bold wheat and grain flavors dominate the drink with minimal taste of the yeast or hops added. The flavor of Rothaus Pils is unique and has an undeniable flavor that most other Euro or American pils fail to pull off. Certainly will be remembering this beer as one of the better Pilsener styled beers.

DraftDodger (726) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 7, 2016
Copenhagen 7/2 2016. 33 cl bottle from Meny. Drawing of beer serving girl with two pitchers of beer in slightly naivistic style on the label. Reminds me of propaganda posters from the 1950ties. Pours clear pale yellow with big white head. Settles as 1 cm thick layer of foam. Lacing on the side of the glass. Aroma is pretty neutral. Sweet corn and a little hoppy bitterness. Medium carbonation and watery palate. Taste combines sweet corn with pronounced bitterness. Crisp and fresh. Kind of old fashioned and German but in a very positive meaning of the words.

SlovakSniper (4351) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 6, 2016
Pils herbacée, aromates du chef, bonnes céréales à la fois croquantes et mielleuses. Bon conditionnement. Facile à boire avec le burger maison du Row 34.

pityu (461) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 3, 2016
Bottle - Clear pale straw colour, small white head, average retention. Vibrant herbal and grassy hop aromas with some hay. Taste is ruled by herbal and grassy hop bitterness, malty taste is quite simple and shy. Light body, medium carbonation, crispy texture, dry finish with long bitter aftertaste. Nice german pils.

Chalumeaux (686) - Methuen, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 31, 2016
Poured from tap at Karls Sausage Kitchen golden straw color with a nice one finger white head. Aromas of straw hay grass and a mild spice. Taste is nice medium thin mouth feel with notes of grass and a lingering bitterness. Classic pils.

gueggi (8) - - JAN 30, 2016 does not count
Der beste Aromahopfen aus Tettnang und der Hallertau, heimisches Malz aus Sommergerste und reinstes Quellwasser aus dem Hochschwarzwald verleihen jedem Rothaus Pils seinen einzigartig würzigen und frischen Geschmack.

dnicolaescu (1518) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JAN 27, 2016
50 ml sample. Almost clear straw. Herbal nose, some white bread and a dry medium bitter finish. A bit meaty, but clean overall. Might be a bit old, but still an ok pils. (backlog 17-JAN-2016).

Senka (999) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 22, 2016
FTA: Had this on several occasions in Germany during last years. A review of this Pilsener reminded me to check, if I have ticked it. This a very good, traditional German Pilsener. Freshest I had was a pub in Konstanz. Clear strong taste, nice ABV and it was always a pleasure to enjoy it.

koshack (984) - Gdañsk, POLAND - JAN 21, 2016
Jasnozłote, klarowne. Piana drobna, biała, obfita. Ładnie koronkuje. Dobry, czysty aromat. Lekko popiołowy. W smaku lekko wodniste, ale czuć chmiel. Słodowość niska. Rośnie w miarę picia. \Niskie wysycenie.
