HonusWagner (1380) - Florida, USA - NOV 4, 2013
Crisp clean grassy biscuity pilsener. Effervescent, extremely drinkable, thirst-quenching even. The sometimes brilliant side of Smuttynose shows up again.

Tmoney99 (10660) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Bottle. Poured a clear pale color with a moderate frothy white head that lasted and had good lacing. Medium floral hop and sweet malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. This beer just met my expectations.

cheap (4054) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 30, 2013
Slightly hazy pale lager looking thing. Slight metallic aroma without any skunkiness in there. Taste is a little sharp with the associated pilser bite. Alky presentation is not bad overall. Few manners but none can be acquired. Skummy pond scum for a head. Finish is acceptable for a sharp pilsner style beer.

wlajwl (3877) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - OCT 28, 2013
Aroma and flavor is grains and light citrus and a dry finish. Among the closer to the source German Pils I’ve had.

Dogbrick (8141) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 25, 2013
Sample at 1808 American Bistro. Pours a slightly hazy yellow color with a thin white head that dissipates gradually. Spotty lacing. Aroma of toasted malt and hops. Light-bodied with flavors of grassy hops and malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a floral hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

Minderbinder (1795) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 24, 2013
Bottle 355ml. Pours blond with medium white head. Good lacing. Aroma is of pils malt, grain, wheat, some citrus. Taste is of pils malt, grain, wheat, fair bitterness, slight citrus, alcohol. Palate: Light body. Crisp. Overall: Well executed. Nice crispyness. A good beer.

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2013 First off, that is not how you spell wunderbar. It is how you pronounce it but not how you spell it. I find this profoundly irritating for some reason and am subtracting one point from overall impression. Don?t like it, give me a buzz at 1-800-DONT-CALL. In any case, this is a continental European style lager for lack of a more specific term. It is supposedly a Pilsener according to RateBeer as of October 2013 but I think it falls more in the category of a Dortmunder w/ its lighter bitterness and more floral hop character while not quite having the big malt character of a helles. It is a good beer though so it will still get a high score from me despite penalties.

Chudwick (2145) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - OCT 15, 2013
12oz bottle (best by 10/24/2013 ABV 5.2% per bottle)- pours cloudy pale yellow with white head. Nose is hay, grass and citrus. A little bitter and refreshing. Latent bread qualities. Funderbar? more like underbar or as they say it in Henderson County, Kentucky: Bunderbar.

glennmastrange (2255) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - OCT 14, 2013
Bottle. Moderate grain and hay for the malt, moderate to heavy herbs for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with hints of pepper and cardboard. Head is average size, fizzy/frothy, white with fair lacing and is fully lasting. Color is hazy, yet sparkling pale yellow. Flavor is moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and bitter. Palate light, watery, with a fizzy carbonation. Pilseners are supposed to be light but the flavor is a little bland and the palate is weak in this one.

DialSquare (2657) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 12, 2013
12oz bottle from total wine in Tampa. Murky yellow pour. Aroma is muted grain and grass. Tastes are lemon, yeast, straw.
