3fourths (7855) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 5, 2008
Bottle. Pours a surprisingly light but slightly cloudy yellow, with a tall, fast-growing white head on top. Decent look but the paleness isn’t inspiring confidence. Nose is quiet, minerally, pillowy yeast with a sweetened cream and corn note, along with lighter fruit/citrus/lemon. Body is medium to light, somewhat weak and watery, while the flavors center around more of this sweet lemon and creamed corn (also sweet). Transparent finish.

leaparsons (7923) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2008
Bottle. Light gold with a small head. Aromas are grain with floral notes and a strange "pong". Flavours are biscuit malts with grain and citrus. Grassy and crisp.

roder60 (1282) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 7, 2008
Pours a slightly hazy dark yellow color with large amount of very froathy white head. Aroma is of sweet grass. Flavor is very sweet and malty. Heavier mouthfeel, bit of honey. Minimal hops. Overall, pretty decent.

notalush (4754) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 24, 2008
50cl swingtop - clear golden, fizzy beer, with a foamy, rapidly shrinking head that settles to a decent lace - aroma of grassy hops, floral notes, sweet malts, a strange vegetal quality, and a light mineral character - honey sweet at first, but an herbal/floral kick and medium hop bitterness creep in to balance that out pretty nicely - there is a bit of a chalky feel on the back end, and the hops don’t really bite like I want them to in a pils, but this is a decent beer.

kramer (4856) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 14, 2008
500 ml bottle. Pours a a clear straw yellow body with a nice two finger fizzy white head that slowly gained density. The nose is grassy hops with crusty bread pils malt and just a slight tinge of sulfur. Crisp flavor with a good bit of grassy hops and light bready maltiness. A bit of a carbonic bite on the finish and some lingering light bitterness. Light bodied and crisp with sturdy biting carbonation. Overall, this was a damn decent German Pilsener. So far 2 for 2 from these guys. At just a buck a bottle, it looks like I’m going to have a very Veldensteiner summer!

Swing Top Bottle: Poured a golden yellow with a white head. The aroma was of malt and grass. The flavor was very good, slightly malty with hints of hops. Overall, a very good Pilsner

Ungstrup (29018) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 16, 2007
Bottled. A golden beer with a white head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of straw and light notes of hops. The flavor is sweet malty again with notes of straw.

beerbill (3324) - Laurel, New York, USA - SEP 10, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2009 I felt like I needed to re-rate this given that my most recent experience with this beer was not all that good. Similar ceramic swing-top bottle as my initial rating. Pours a pale clear gold with a thin white head. There is a noticeable smell of sulphur in the aroma that is off-putting. It is not a heavy smell, but is most definitely there and gets in the way. The flavor is malt with some grassy hops, but the sulphur vapors continue to waft into the nose despite my efforts to ignore it. Mild bitterness at the finish.

500 ml ceramic flip-top bottle. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a dense white head that lasted through about half the glass. Pleasant aroma of malt, grass and hops. Flavor was again malt, grass and hops. Light bitterness at the finish. Solid beer. 7-3-7-3-14=3.4

maeib (8574) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2007
Bottled. A yellow gold coloured lager. The aroma is grassy hops and a little creaminess. The taste is quite smooth and mellow with a bitter lemony hop bite. Crisp and pleasant enough.

joergen (20486) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2007
Bottle. Hazy yellow coloured with a white head. Aroma of malts, caramel and hops. Flavour of malts, caramel, card board and hops.
