Bottle from SAQ. Pull top, wtf? Pours a clear pale yellow, lots of carbonation. Bubbly head that lingers. Aroma: Hay, grass, slightly fruity. Palate: Thin bodied, but not too watery. Oily. Leaves a film in your mouth. Taste: slightly bitter. Not much flavour here. Maybe good when it is super hot out.

went by the name, had hoped for better, but all together a pedestrian pilsener, lots of cereal notes, could have been more crisp

Bottle@Schladming. Golden color, airy white head. Hoppy aroma with vegetable notes. Uneven malty flavor with vague hop bitterness. Medium body, medium carbonation. Nah.

16erBlech (151) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - JAN 17, 2015
0,5l bottle. Mild, aromatic, tasty, refreshing, drinkable beer with a nice hoppy finish. A real hop-king. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tonkun (949) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 14, 2014
Bottle. Clear golden pour with half a finger of white head. Grass, wheat, grain. Light body with medium carbonation. Short crisp finish. Easy to drink but not interesting

Yellow with a trace of head, served in sampler. Bland and watery, paired decently with schnitzel but not a beer I would order again. Not a big pilsener fan in general, but this makes me wonder whether the Austrian variety is particularly uninteresting for an American craft beer drinker’s palate.

MichaelAwesome (4982) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - OCT 7, 2014
Nettes Piwo mit einer trocken-herben Seele. Hopfigfrisch mit viel Gras im Aroma und einem leicht bitteren Schluss. Angenehm zu trinken und stellenweise sehr erfrischend.

McTapps (5002) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - OCT 7, 2014
Bottle from the Interspar in Kufstein. The beer pours out in a clear golden colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of mild hops and bubble gum. Taste of mild hops, light grass, leaves, light malt, bread. High carbonation. Easy to drink, yet it lacks some character and deepness.

Para começar, muito interessante a forma de abrir a garrafa. Não conhecia o sistema. Mas vamos ao que interessa. O aroma já se manifestou logo após a abertura da garrafa. Bastante intenso e lupulado, algo de refrescante. O líquido apresentou a característica coloração "loura". E o creme se formou bem, com boa densidade e deixou marcas perfeitas ao longo do copo. Porém não manteve-se perene até o fim. No mais, um belo amargor, bastante densa ao paladar e bem carbonatada. O retrogosto foi de um amargo saboroso. Em resumo, uma das melhores pilsners que já tomei.

Fuck you SAQ, c’est pas mal ça mon rating. Espèce de bière quelconque tout à fait aqueuse et inintéressante.

Ok, but the other naturklub was better. Tried a small taste of this at the bar down the street from Meridan Pint last week. Tap.
