330ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Very pale yellow colour, ok head. Aroma of grass not a lot flavour. Disappointing

This pilsner is properly hoppy and very smooth. The malt is thin, and less grainy in flavor than Stigl. The spice of the Saaz comes out for the finish. It is drinkable and satisfying, but I find the Austrian pilsners generally inferior to the Czech brews.

edsspoon (761) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2014
Pours pale yellow with a white head. Aroma of some citrus and sweetness. Very light, citrus taste with a mildly bitter aftertaste.

I’m not the biggest fan of pilsener beers, but this one was quite satisfying. Definitely more noticeably hopped than a typical pils (Urquell) while still maintaining the crispy freshness one would expect. In fact it was nice.

Ok this is a disappointment. By all outward appearances this should be a solid beer but the flavor is skunky.

Whatup14 (1129) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 17, 2014
Bouteille 330ml. Couleur jaune pâle maladif, mousse blanche immaculée ayant une bonne tenue et laissant une fine dentelle. Arôme de malt pâle, herbal léger. Goût de malt, céréales, amertume minime, arrière-goût un peu sucré. Carbonatation élevée, voire aggressive, corps moyen. Correcte sans plus.

darkseduction (659) - Zweibrücken, GERMANY - JAN 7, 2014
Flasche 50cl. Körperreiches, süffiges Pils. Die filigrane Hopfennote weicht leider im Nachgang einer metallischen Note. Trotzdem handwerklich solide gemachtes Pils, ohne jedoch den Saazer-Trumpf voll auszuspielen. Schade!

Weefannybaws (130) - Barrhead, SCOTLAND - DEC 31, 2013
330ml bottle. Light, golden pilsner style beer. Metallic nose. Not much flavour, but very refreshing. Perfect accompaniment to crisps and nuts.

Lore (1514) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 29, 2013
pale yellow colour, ok head; aroma of some grass and bread; disgusting taste of some grassy hops and malts...I’m very disappointed and expected much more

On 28th Nov 13 I had a little Lager/Pilsner session: this 330ml green, rip-top bottle was my third one. Pale golden in colour it showed bright, clean and clear: the snow white head even stayed and gave some lacing on my ’La Chouffe’ tulip that I’d poured it into, very un-lager/pilsner like. Both the nose and taste were leaning towards a sweet feel and grainy. The hop content gave it a crisp texture and added a bite to the brew. I thought this was OK, a lot better than the two different Beck’s offerings I’d had before anyway.
