Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2007
Pours a light golden colour, fairly typical pilsener appearance. Glassy, slightly hoppy aroma and a pleasant flavour, hoppy notes and a slight malty sweetness. Very drinkable, I thought. Doesn’t have that abrasive after-taste that some pilseners have.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 6, 2007
Bottle. Pours clear pale yellow, white head. Aroma is grass, hops, slight citrus. Flavor is grass, slight tangerine, wheat, mild hops. I’m not a big fan.

tiggmtl (4545) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 4, 2007
Light aroma offers some grain and some grassy hops. Clear golden body is topped by a fizzy white head that recedes rapidly to a patchy partial cover and leaves no lace. Grain is apparent in the fresh taste with grassy, floral and lightly spicy hops and decent bitterness. Light body with strong carbonation that is perhaps just a bit too prickly. Footed Pilsner glass. Fridge temperature. Can (BCLS on Cambie at 8th, Apr-07).

Can at home (sadly). Tastes pretty good actually. Skunky aroma. Grassy taste with fruity notes, some citrus and orange. Crispy with prickly mouthfeel.

LinusStick (2992) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 20, 2007
A slightly disappointing pilsener. This is a hard style to rate as, to me, they all taste the same with different amounts of carbonation and hops. Pour was a light clear gold with a 1 finger white head. Aroma was pilsener-esque. Taste was medium carbonation, nice and crisp with hops shining through in the end. Little malt if any.
