On tap at Growler Guys Meridian Light hazy very pale yellow. This wispy quick white head. Classic mild and fairly sweet pils aromas and flavors. A little late noble hop bit but overall light and a little sweet. Pleasant

Puszka 500ml. Jasnozloty kolor piana biala dosc obfita. Aromat chmielow i slodow. W smaku duzo chmielu i niezly balans. Niezly pilsner do wypelnienia lodowki.

Prufrockstar (1820) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 20, 2016
Draft at Shultzy’s over lunch on the patio. I should drink more of these standards. Not much to say here, except clean, crisp, approachable and easy-drinking.

Really nice Pilsener. Fresh, crisp and a mild yet bitter Taste. Just like a pilsner should be...

hauxe (290) - Butzbach, GERMANY - APR 17, 2016
Pours pale gold with a somewhat soapy looking head. A lightly malty aroma tinged with fruitiness greets the nose. The initial impressions are otherwise unremarkable. First taste is actually quite pleasant and well balanced - characterized by a rich malty sweetness with plenty of hops bitterness to even things out. The bitterness deepens in the finish, and, while not quite acrid, leaves a stale aftertaste in the mouth that is not particularly pleasant. The palate is medium bodied with no traces of wateriness; the carbonation fairly high. Nothing here to savor, and I could picture it being a decent complement to a BBQ dinner. It is though a beer you will quickly forget.

slowrunner77 (9226) - Reno, Nevada, USA - APR 12, 2016
pretty standard stuff here - in that land between macro and micro. Soft grass and a little cereal sweetness. Thin and overly bubbly, though it has a tiny bit of a bite at the end.

corkyrory66 (1265) - BELGIUM - APR 1, 2016
Pilsener de 4,8 % abv, à l’étiquette de présentation vraiment très sobre, et un petit a parte argenté relevant l’antériorité de 1824, pas du tout galvaudée. Format généreux de 50 cl. Couleur doré soutenu, à la brillance très forte, étonnante. Bulles fines partout, bien vives. Mousse blanche épaisse, stable à 13 mm. Arômes de malt très fin, pointe d’épice, houblon, levure. 1ère bouche soyeuse, sur un malt très doux, pointe de houblon bien présente. Arrière-bouche très équilibrée, agréable. 2ème à la belle densité, et belle texture. Arrière-bouche vraiment lisse, nette. 3ème aux belles nuances. Arrière-bouche au top d’une pils. Longueur à la très belle évolution. On ne parlera pas de l’alcool, mais il n’est pas sans soutenir quelques nuances. Finale linéaire. CONCLUSION : une pils qui est un peu dans la ligne des imperial pils, avec un très bel équilibre, une belle tenue en bouche, et beaucoup d’élégance. Elle dépasse ainsi la Slaghmuylder Kerstbier dans la cotation des pilsener, qui aura tenu 4 mois la palme, et qui la cède donc un peu plus vers l’est, en direction de plzen ...
