Draft at Beer Run, 11/26/13. Pours a crystal clear golden color with a medium sized frothy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of herbal hops and pale crackery malts. The taste is grassy hops, pale dry malts and faint hints of mint and apple. Medium bodied, slight lingering bitterness, crisp.

Kurde39 (7) - FRANCE - DEC 27, 2013 does not count
Une excellente pils classique et qui donne la sensation d’être artisanale, elle est riches, malté, douce et rafraîchissant.

Homer321 (1971) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - DEC 25, 2013
Can courtesy of BooooooooooostIPA. Slightly frothed over the lid upon opening. Nose is kinda catty and pissy. Moderate crackery malt taste. Low bitterness and moderate hop flavor that is just generally grassy. Not a bad lawnmower beer.

Can at home. Pours lightly hazy gold with a large, frothy white head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is moderate Pils malt, earthy and spicy hops, and straw notes. Flavor is crisp Pils malt balanced with spicy and earthy hops, medium bitterness, a clean lager character and a dry finish. Light body and moderate carbonation.

marquisalex (167) - Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2013
Can, in a stemmed tulip. Hazy dull gold. Bone-white head, some lace. Light, fresh hop aroma (piney/grassy). Clean and bitter. Spot on carbonation, long, dry bitter finish. Easy drinking, but full flavoured. Lovely pilsener.

NordicV (1182) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - NOV 21, 2013
Ljust gyllengul öl med ett vitt skum. Doft av hö, jäst och en aning citron. Samma återkommer i smaken. Når inte upp till de bättre tyska varianterna.

Can from BeerRitz, Leeds. Very pale gold with a thin white head. Slight sweet hop aroma. No really strong flavours. Some tropical fruits before a bitter grapefruit finish. Very refreshing and easy to drink.
