rozsoma (462) - HUNGARY - JUL 8, 2014
Fruity citrus aroma, light creamy white head, soft carbonation, száraz tiszta íz. Klasszikus észak-germán pilzener. Nincs is jobb az ilyen forró nyári napokon...

titvs (70) - PORTUGAL - JUN 22, 2014
Review according to BJCP2008 guidelines (style 2A). Can 0.5 l - Batch unknown. AROMA: slight sweet, grainy aroma mixed with DMS in the background. some sulfury notes. very faint hop aromas. APPEARANCE: pale straw color and very clear. creamy white head with médium-low retention. TASTE: slight malt notes with médium-low bitterness that persists in the aftertaste. very low to none hop flavours. PALATE: light body with low carbonation. a bit watered down. OVERALL: a watered down german pilsener that lacks the noble hops character.

On tap, tulip. Bright yellow color with a short fluffy white head, fizzy. Straightforward German Pilsener, smoother and very drinkable, refreshing. Mild bitterness, thin body.

bartlebier (1480) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - JUN 10, 2014
6pack bought for free cooler bag and to assess its Ökotest "sehr gut" accolade, bb09-2014. Label indicates use of only hops, not extract - a rarer feat in DE-TV beers nowadays. Pours rather faint green-yellow with fizzy white head. Fresh hay, slight citrus and ok worty aromas give way to a very clean, indeed near-crisp natural malty taste, rounded lemonade notes offsetting gently hop grass, without too much of that macro metal showing up here (cf. Bitburger, Warsteiner, Radeberger), pleasant citrus rind easing drinkability - stopping short of becoming really characteristic - but leaving with a clean finish. Not the worst of top 10 TV Pilsners at all - I would dare any Belgian brewery to mass produce any Pils this clean without adjuncts.

Bottle. Really slight haze on a light gold ale with a thick white fluffy head. Nose is light, lemony and corn. Surprisingly sweet in the mouth. Light and bubbly with sweet corn and it leaves behind a touch of lemon and bitterness. Decent enough summer quaffer.
