jcos (1442) - Maryland, USA - NOV 8, 2012
Location/Date:Bottle on November 8th, 2012.

Appearance: Pours a clear gold with some bubbles and faint white head.
Aroma: Aroma of bready malt.
Taste: Light bitterness, some bready malt but not overbearing.
Palate:Light body, faint fizz.

Summary: Taste really passed my expectation of the nose. Often times pilsners have a really poor syrupy stale malty taste. This does not, which I give it credit for. However, it’s still just missing something from being good.

Drunk on draught in Linz. Pleasant pilsener like lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 (141) - 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 (583) - 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 (572) - 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 (83) - Paisley, 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 (831) - 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
