(bottle - 500 ml swingtop) Clear gold color with lots of carbonation but surprisingly little head. Aroma is hay and dry grass mixed with some light hops and a touch of sweetness. Some apple notes as well. Flavor is dry and sweet at the beginning with a very mild and stale hop backbone. Lots of sweetness permeates the body at the finish but leaves a dry and bitter aftertaste.

Kind of a darker clear golden body with a thick 3 finger head. Good lacing. Smell is average of hay, hops, and light malt. Taste is a bit sweet at first but a solid hop ending that balances it well. High carbonation and an earthy feel to it.

drpimento (2280) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 4, 2009
Not bad. Little sweeter and maltier than most pils. Gives it a little outside the box character, but on the other hand, maybe not really in the right direction. Poured from the little swing top bottle that foamed over when opened with a medium white head and a tiny bit of lace. Color is a light to medium amber. Aroma is grainy, malty, hint of hop, and honey sweet. Flavor is the same but more intense. Body is decent. Interestingly, bitterness comes out more in the finish.

mkel07 (3640) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 30, 2009
500ml bottle. Soft white foam head that sat atop a golden amber coloured medium bodied beer with a good balance of carbonation. Aroma was average and nothing really distinctive. mild and pleasant flavour.

pours copper orange with thin beige head, the aroma is toffee and the flavor is sweet caramel.

hoplover406 (204) - Crofton, Maryland, USA - APR 8, 2009
Bottle. Pours hazy dark golden/yellow. Earthy hops, biscuity malt. Low carbo, slightly slick. Taste is very good. Good Pils.

auerbrau (3177) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - MAR 22, 2009
12oz Bottle purchased from Hi-Times. Pours a coppered gold, with a light haze and a frothy white head. Cracker-like pilsener malt character, heading towards oldness. Tinted with slightly metallic bitter hops. Flavor is wet, rusty, and and oxidized. Sloppy. Grains are messy. This just isn’t snappy or desirable. The hops are dusty, the beer oxidized. Ugh.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - FEB 12, 2009
Bottle. Pours a golden body with a white head. Sweet malty body with a thin earthiness. Light citrus accents and some mild lemon acidicty. Grain and a light earthiness. Kevin this ratings for you!

A nice looking golden brew with a thin white head, dull scent, and bitter taste, lacking all crispness and depth, and a sour aftertaste. Very disappointing for the genre.

Dorwart (2382) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JAN 21, 2009
Thin head of fine bubbles. Good carbonation. Light bready malts, lemon grass and some hops. Clor is a clear golden orange. Flavor is light bready malts again with some sweetness and grainy notes. Even though it is light on flavor, I am still enjoying this brew. Not as dry and as sharp as I would have expected. Finishes smooth and a bit on the creamy side. A decent and enjoyable pilsner. Better than expected.
