ThisWangsChung (836) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Reviewed 12/25/2012. 11.2 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a lighter straw color with fantastic clarity. The head is a one finger white color with okay retention. Basically, it’s everything you’d expect a decent pilsner to look like. S: I was really wary when I first popped open the weird pulltab and whiffed a MASSIVE amount of skunk, but in the glass it’s calmed down well. Lots of zesty noble hops with no real malt aroma. Weak in general, but not bad. T: There’s almost a green pepper flavor that really catches me off guard - yeah, it definitely tastes like bell pepper. Not really a good thing. There’s a bit of grass and sweet malts on the finish, but that off flavor really throws everything off guard. M: Well carbonated and nicely light - there’s no mouthfeel problems keeping it from going down easy, just the flavors. O: This...doesn’t work. The pepper character kills what could have been a good pilsner. At the very least, it would pair decently with Mexican food.

Bottle from home bargains, Walsall. Golden beer with medium head. Aroma of light malt. Taste is some hop bitterness, cereal grain and some herb. Gets better.

jp199820022004 (2) - SCOTLAND - JUL 29, 2016 does not count
Aroma nothing special It's yellow Tastes likes pils but nothing special Surprised to read its 5.1% Palette quite buttery in fact but not that much taste otherwise. Overall would prefer some more but it's just a bit wet blanket.

RaoniBiel (16) - BRAZIL - JUL 1, 2016
Garrafa 330 ml. Cor de dourado claro achampanhado, translúcida, alguma espuma de média duração. É uma cerveja muito leve, de razoável carbonação, pouco amargor e pouca presença de lúpulo. O aroma também é bem leve, com alguma presença de malte.

tricksta_p (3623) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUN 11, 2016
Bottle at home. Aroma is grainy malt and straw with a hint of grassy hops. Flavour is light sweet and light to moderate bitter. Body is light to medium. Drinkable Pilsener.

nimbleprop (7560) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 7, 2016
64oz growler from Dominion Wine pours a clear gold with some spitty, white head. Nose is skunky, grassy, some grist, what you expect of a pils which traveled across the seas. Flavor follows with lemon, grass, skunk and paper. Watery finish.

Tognetta (747) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - MAY 17, 2016
Amarelo bastante claro e translúcido, espuma branca de média formação e persistência. Aroma de lúpulo herbal, grama recém cortada, bastante discreto. Paladar inicia com leve herbal e fica um pouco mais amargo como agrião. Corpo e carbonatação leves. Final de breve duração, sem muita variação. Fraca mas bebivel.

Bierdimpfe (501) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 24, 2016
Bright straw color with strong activity. Thick white 2 finger head lasting around 8 minutes with some good legs. Faint aromas and flavors of grains, citrus, floral and herbal spices. Balanced sweet and sharp lemony taste with minimal hops and a metallic feel. Almost no smell. Medium slick body with moderate carbonation. Faint and short finish ending with minimal floral and herbal feel. Overall poorly crafted having bland watery flavors and no personality. Though refreshing and accessible, it should have more hops.
