Bit of a hoppy nose. Bit flat for a pilsener. Flavour was OK, but nothing spectacular. Kind of dry, but needed to be dryer.

this is adecent pils. I do not favor pils but it has a nice balance. Tried it twice and was a bit less impressed on the second sitting.

Oakes (12561) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 18, 2000
UPDATED: JUL 23, 2006 Golden colour with typical Eurolager aromas of continental hops and bready pale malts. Well-made if a little indistinctive.

I’m not sure what all the hype is about: This beer was not very good.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - SEP 11, 2000
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2004 Draught @ Papago

As I bash lagers and pilsners quite a bit, I must say this beer hit the “B” spot as its like 85 degrees Fahrenheit today. The color on the pour is a crystalline gold with a prosperous white head that is also creamy in texture, with the lace a fine veil to conceal the glass. Nose is prototypical lager fresh and sweet, nicely malted with the start sweet and the top light to moderate in feel. Finish has a pleasant acidity with the hops apropos to the style, quite dry aftertaste and a quite drinkable lager that I’ve not sampled in years, a great session beer for the hot summer days in Arizona that are just around the corner.

Sammys (428) - Portland, Maine, USA - AUG 16, 2000
I had this on tap recently, and found it very ’nothing’. Not ’bad’ like many American Pilsners, but just not much flavor to speak of. I also made the mistake of having it right after a Leffe Brune on tap. A lot of beers would taste like nothing after a gem like that.

PhillyBeer2112 (2525) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - JUL 19, 2000
I’m updating my rating - previously I had sampled an extraordinarily skunky bottle and rated it at 1.9. I just tried it fresh on draught and unskunky. Still, its not as impressive as I’ve heard. Some malt character and body, but overall, an extremely mediocre beer.

billb (244) - Kennesaw, Georgia, USA - JUL 9, 2000
Had this on tap, it was absolutely atrocious. No head, no lacing, no flavor, I couldn’t finish this.

Bov (9492) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 19, 2000
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2007 translucide and bright golden colour, big and irregular white head with big bubbles; elusive herbal aroma with notes of paperboard behind; the palate begins slightly oily, moderately sweet; medium-bodied; a hint of late bitterness with a decent malty, corny finish - drinkable
