Not sure whatís wrong with the rest of you, but this oneís not bad. Great carbonation, big rocky head, strong hoppy bite, (very refreshing), with a crisp finish. And it came in a 17oz bottle so I didnít have to keep flagging down the waiter! Come to my rescue here, CORNFIELD!

UGH! It is a rare beer that I actually pour down the drain rather than drink, but this was one of them. It was insipid, uninspiring and plain watery, with virtually zero taste, with the little taste not being dissimilar to sucking on dead grass. Horrible.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tasted in Toronto. Obtained from LCBO. Tasted in dimpled mug. Appearance is light yellow, substantial sustained head - clear. Buttery, soft hop aroma, with hints of malt but very subtle. Flavour matches well with the aroma - light buttery creamy taste, slight bitterness of hops with a finishing grainy / malt flavour.

Bottled, pasteurised. Pale straw with heavy head, sl haze. Pretty standard light malt pilsner, A bit of peppery hop and a biscuit malt, but nothing particularly outstanding.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Against the grain here. I thought this is a very good pilsner when I taste it and then I looked at its average. I quickly decided that the average canít be right, so I page through to Brettís rating(urbnhautebourg, my pilsner expert) and he confirm that it is as good as thought. Yellow straw colored moderate white head, with a slight haze. Aroma of saaz. Well crafted balance of bitterness and the flavor crisp saaz. Slightly dry, like any good pils on the finish.

There was a nice pepper hop aroma wafting out of this light golden pils. Looked good too - fat white head and great lacing. Taste was lightly sweet with a grassy peppery hop finish.

Pretty decent pils especially after a long day of hiking around the salzburg caslte. Very refreshing and crisp pilsner. Great clean taste and mouthfeel. Light color pure white head and good lacing. Better than average european pils.

One of the oddest looking beers Iíve ever seen, looked allot like mountain dew if you as me, Tasted real watery with some malt, average easy drinking beer, I like the bottle though the long neck would make a good handle for using in a barroom brawl. Of course maybe a guy weilding a stiegl pils bottle might not be the most intimidating
