(33cl bottle, best by 12/13/ 06) Crystal clear straw body topped by medium white head. Aroma is medium sweet, straw, some bread, light lemon, grassy. Taste is medium sweet, grassy, bread, some butter. Light body, some crispness, dryness. Easy drinking.

wxman (1478) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - AUG 10, 2006
Slightly hazy golden straw color with a fairly thick egg white-like head. Breadlike aroma with some graininess. Smooth clean pale malt pils taste, but not quite as hoppy as most German examples. A very good beer.

An above standard pils, with strong bitterness in finish and significant hoppy flavour. Very refreshing.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 9, 2006
The pour reveals a clear golden color with a medium, rocky white head. Good aroma of noble hops and biscuity malt, it’s appealing and standard for the style. The flavor has the same noble hops and a good, crisp biscuity malt, it finishes sweet. The palate is light and creamy with moderate carbonation. A rather well-done and classic interpretation of the style, I like it.

mkobes (2141) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - AUG 7, 2006
Bottle. Clear yellow in color with little or no white head. Grainy hoppy aroma. Hoppy and malty flavor. Sweet. Medium bodied. Bready finish. Nice beer.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - AUG 7, 2006
Bottle. Fluffy white head with a nice flour and grain aroma. Taste is nice and hoppy with a gentle, almost sweet aftertaste. Nice and bready.

KnutAlbert (6267) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 1, 2006
50 cl can, in Greece. Rather thin and metallic, but a little dyness in the finish. Cheap.

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - JUL 30, 2006
From a slender 11.2 oz. embossed long neck brown bottle with no freshness date. Poured a clear pale golden with a nice foamy white head that settled into a thin sudsy lacing. Had largely a clean nose, sweet grainy, a light lemon with a touch of herbal spiciness. Good carbonation and a dry crisp, smooth light bodied mouthfeel. Pleasant pilsener taste, dry grains, spicy lemon tea-like hops, a little herbalness, and a dryish grainy and spicy finish, decent summertime pilsener drinkability. A refreshing pilsener on a hot summer day at a good price.

diabel (1609) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - JUL 20, 2006
Bottle, Best before Dec. 13, 2006 Off-white fizzy head with a fair lace - lasts mostly. Clear, yellow body. Quite nice aroma of citrus and hops. Moderately bitter initial flavour - Lightly sweet, moderately bitter in the end. Lightly bodied. Lively carbonation. Has a lightly astringent feel which isn’t annoying. A nice pilsener.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - JUL 10, 2006
12 oz. bottle. Pale straw color, medium white head. Light straw aroma, bit of grassy hops. A little thin feeling, although it’s clean. Not quitre enough malt for me. Grassy hops in the finish, which is lightly bitter and astringent. Unremarkable.
