Atom (1812) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 21, 2015
Pint can pours a clear pale straw/yellow with a large white head. Aroma of honey malt, grassy hops, and light yeast. Taste of mineral sweetness (malt), grassy hops with light bitterness, and a hint of yeast. Just too sweet.

EtTuCthulhu (1384) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - AUG 17, 2015
The beer pours a very clear yellow with a medium white head. The aroma blends pils malt and doughy yeast, and the taste is slightly bitter and slightly sweet on the front end with more sour lager flavor coming through in the end. The palate fuses a slick texture, medium-light body, and a soft carbonation.

tmoreau (2975) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - AUG 14, 2015
Shared 500 ml. can poured to snifters, showing a hazed, gold color, with modest, soft white head foam, and light dots & dashes of lacing. The nose was light grain/soft malt, subtle floral hints, and light grass & greenery. Light bodied, with good carbonation, the taste was similar notes, adding a modest earthy bitterness that lingered to finish. Decent sessionability.

GoufCustom (1099) - HONG KONG - AUG 13, 2015


355 ml bottle bought at YATA in MOKO (Grand Century Place), Mong Kok.

Looks: Clear light golden yellow colour; Near zero head with residual soapy white foam which fades in 10 seconds; Fair sticky lacing and barely notable small carbonation.

Aroma: Slightly pungent full malt, with floral, wood, molasses notes, strong bread, lemon and moderate grass.

Taste: Mid to light sweet full lager malt, with strong wood, floral, barley grains, strong molasses, spice, earth, thick bread, yeast, strong lemon, moderate bitter hops and fresh grass.

Body: Close to light body. Thin and slightly crisp palate.

Mouth Feel: Full and rich bready maltyness in a rather thin body. Grain taste present but the with loads of German hops working wonders - bitter floral, strong woodiness, earthy spices and strong lemon balance out the rich malt sweetness. Nice!

Hoppiness: Floral, wood, lemon and moderate grass in nose. Strong wood, flower, spice, earth, strong lemon and fresh grass in taste; Bitterness is moderate to strong for a lasting, mid astringent bitter-sweet finish.

After Taste: Fairly dry. Rich and quite bitter to mouth.

Comments: Its poor looks and no head are simply deceiving, as its rich maltyness and massive attack of Spalt and Tettnanger wood and spicy hops make this Pils instantly enjoyable. A keeper!

Saeglopur (1110) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JUL 16, 2015
500 ml can from Craft Bier Fest Wien Tasting Sessions.
Pale golden, clear body, with a big, frothy, white head.
Aroma of grass, flowers, fresh minty herbs, bread.
Tastes of grains, grass, flowers, citrus, mint and other herbs, subtle honey.
Medium mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes bitter, dry, grassy, floral, herbal.

Very nice, fresh Pils. I really like the floral and minty notes. Lacks a bit more body though, but on the other hand very easy to drink. Overall one of the better Pilsners I’ve had.

Suttree (5579) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 22, 2015
Clear yellow, big fluffy white head. Smells grassy, grainy, some bread notes, and pepper. Seems a little rich on the palate, but not in a bad way. Taste is a little on the sweet side, then grass, grain, and fresh bread. Pretty tasty, actually.

thegreenrooster (3561) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 20, 2015
Pour is a bright clear golden outta the can. Aroma is a nice doughy, bready pils malt. Flavor is a very clean drinking, dry biscuity malt with a nice grassy hop. This was a fine pils, everything you are looking for in the style. The colder I drank this beer the better it was.

Pale golden color, white head. Grassy hops, grains. Flavor is grainy, grassy, hops, medium bitterness. Ok Pils
