A Bavarian style pilsner brewed with a 100% pilsner malt, infused with Magnum and Tettnang hops, to give a crisp dry beer with a spicy bite.

culchiem (3559) - Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 7, 2015
Draught at Maynard’s. Deep gold with a thin head. Aroma is light grainy malt. Flavour is thin Pilsner bitter, a little sweet malt base on a dry bitter finish, decent effort at a much maligned style.

humlelala (1311) - DENMARK - JUN 19, 2014
(on tap @ Bodega, Cork) Pours a clear golden with little, off-white head that fades. Aroma is mainly diacetyl with a hint of grain. Watery texture, soft carbonation, light body and a buttery, slightly bitter finish. Flavour has a certain herbal bitterness. I am sorry but this is tourist-trap swill.

kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 9, 2013
The head is ok, the body golden. It smells sweet, pilsener malty, mild. The taste is mild, malty, sweet medium. Bit boring. 10/8/9/8/-/9

Creedence (287) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 27, 2013
Draught at The Oval. Lightly sparkling golden with foamy and lasting white head. Stodgy enough nose - caramel, bread, grass and brown rice. Medium sweetness and light bitterness. Hints of hay and grass, quite malty and pretty tasty. Lively enough carbonation with a short dry bitter finish. Decent, but nothing to write home about. Still significantly nicer than any macro lagers.
