Sampled in Fussen. A classic pilsner that is crisp and clear, however really not much flavor and overall just a normal brew with not much to offer.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 3, 2009
Bottled. Poured clear medium golden with a very nice, well-retained cap of white head. The aroma picked up sweet honey and bready notes accented by grassy hoppage.. sweet overall with a touch of crisp spice on the back. The flavor was also on the sweet side with honey giving the most character.. bitterness was light, tangy, and refreshing. Light-bodied and just a bit sweeter than I’d like on the palate.. fairly refreshing. Nothing special in this one, but it was quite drinkable.

VertBaconStrips (2309) - Blerkablerka, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 15, 2009
This is a pretty lame beer. Another offering of great unimportance. Poured out a so-so white cap leaving some messy lacing. Yellow gold brew that is in need of some filtering. Aroma is not that bad - grass, slight stink, hops and wheat. A bit sweet but more on the wheaty side. The taste is nothing different that the large quantity of generic Euro Pils - except I’m noting more malts than usual. A touch of sweetness. Nothing here to set this apart from the others, but nothing bad either. Nice carbonated swish with an appealing aftertaste....turned out to be pretty enjoyable after all!

Clear blond coloured beer with medium white head and lots of carbonation. A yeasty herby aroma. Full palate bit creamy. Finish is bitter ending a bit dry.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 23, 2009
Very clear yellowish coloured beer with some light carbonation and a rather small white head. Light hoppy and grassy aroma. Medium palate. FInish is little bitter with some hoppy hints. Just a medium pilsener.

zakkbironia (112) - Athens, GREECE - MAY 18, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2009 500ml can. Pale yellow color and white foam. I couldn’t expect more than what I got. It’s got an earthy-grainy taste with satisfying bitterness at the end . A very nice pils suitable for drinking a lot. Quallity( the best you can expect of course) and quantity too.

chronictonic (472) - Oreland, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2009
Tap @ UJs - pale gold straw. Lacks real aroma and what there is is slightly metallic. Flavor is light and crisp - very clean and quaffable. Could be a little crisper on the palate, but overall a very good German pilsner.

A very enjoyable German Pilsner. I have learned not to put much emphasis on numerical rating, although I do assign scores to beers. Anyhow, I enjoyed this one. A nice little beer.
