BitchesBrew (715) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 1, 2008
[bottle] Perfect yellow color, with a very dense white head; clear. Aroma is hoppy, with some nice lager yeast character present. Flavors are grainy, toasted malts, nice yeast character and a substantial dose of bitterness. A memorable Pils, indeed.

WillemsUrenkel (653) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - DEC 24, 2014
0,33 l bottle. Clear and very pale golden in the glass. Small fine foamy head. Hope and grain on the nose. Starts with a short hop taste, followed by a more grainy sequence. Sour hints. Not that herb hop bitterness, that we are knowing here in int northwest of Germany. More a decent one out of the southwest. Little bit thin ending.

Very old backlog rating. 33cl bottle from A Tutta Birra, Milano. It pours a pale golden color with a small white head. Aroma is grainy grassy lightly bready. Taste is medium sweet, medium bitter, quite crispy and grassy. Light bodied with good carbonation. Overall, decent

33cl @ bottle. Birra da pranzo/cena della foresta nera. Dissetante ma troppo amarognola.

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2014 Review: 0.33 l Bottle of Rothaus Pils TannenZäpfle, 5.1%ABV The great classic Germany pils with the super cool “old school” style label on the iconic 0.33 bottle format. This is a very popular beer, a cult brand, this beer from the Black Forest. Aroma was quite strong to be honest, took me aback a little, wow. The grassy hops and citrus hitting the senses very quickly. A strong and clean earthy and grainy smell picked up. This aroma woke me up alright! On the appearance side of things the beer looks pretty damn good. Very clean and pure looking, pouring a nice pale yellow colour. Head is pretty decent, nice and frothy, with a little lacing. A real good looking pilsner, with a nice crystal clear body. The taste was very interesting, strong with a slightly malty initial taste to it, which lingers in the mouth. Some cereals, a hoppy finish and an equally strong bitter hoppy aftertaste. The beer had a very strong depth to it, and a lovely crisp feel in the mouth. The beer definitely grows on you and after a few more scoops I started to enjoy this beer. Was a good well balanced tasting beer, from the start to the finish, an interesting experience from the Black Forest.

Beergaard (124) - Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 27, 2014
Very pale/ light yellow beer, white short lived head. Surprisingly hoppy and fresh aroma. Taste is hoppy and fresh as well but with a rather surprising malt backbone. Not bad.

Calisky (1132) - ALSACE, FRANCE - NOV 25, 2014
Couleur dorée claire, mousse qui disparait. Nez houblonné citronné. Gout bien houblonné frais avec forte amertume, note peau de citron. Bon corps. Fin houblonnée amère légèrement citronnée. Très bonne pils

Marheb (2299) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 17, 2014
Machable, résineux avec des sucres résiduels un peu accablants. J’ai pas l’impression d’avoir eu la pils tant attendue.
