The_Osprey (2589) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2015
500ml bottle BB Jan 2016. Yellow, clear, lightly sparkling, decent foamy white head, full lacing. Aroma is very light, touch of honey. Body is medium, soft carbonation, pretty smooth. Taste is soft cracker malts, a little papery, enduring musty bitterness.

BlackHaddock (4435) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2015
Green 500ml bottle: BBD 31 Jul 15. Part of a blind ’supermarket Pilsner’ tasting at home on 18 Jan 15. Just me playing, the wife pouring! This won out of the three beers on the day. Looked good, golden, clear, clean and bright: usual fading white crown on top. Slight hop odour but no real aroma to talk of. Pleasant, uncomplicated bend of light malts and floral hops. Decent without really setting the world alight. A bog standard German Pilsner in all aspects, which means it’s fine.

wimpyjoe (5109) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2014
Bottle from Waitrose, Stevenage. Clear yellow-gold with no head. Not too impressed with this, the pilsner style is very understated with not a lot of flavour. Somewhat floral and grassy, it has a small chemical-like taste that makes this a poor beer.

DruncanVeasey (7379) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2014
RESULT. Got IDd buying this from the Lutterworth store having been ’legal’ for over 2 decades. I must be doing something right. Bottle drank watching the snorefest that is England Vs Norway with half a disinterested eyeball. Pours brilliant gold with a slender white head. Fine honeyed beeswax and flowering shrub aroma. Same flavour; bright and crisp with alluring fresh bread, coniferous and sappy hop. Corking bittersweet lager of a kind the Germans do best. Wish I’d basketed a couple.

Bottle from Waitrose in East Cowes shared with McTapps. My first german piwo since the beginning of our holidays. And this one does not disappoint. Hay with gras, some spruce and herbs in the aroma. Malty moments combined with a decent bitter end. Well balanced carbo and high drinkability. Not bad.

McTapps (5039) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - AUG 14, 2014
Bottle from Waitrose in East Cowes. Pours out in a clear light golden colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of grains and hops. Taste of mild hops, light honey, grass, straw, flowers and bread. Hints of biscuits. Nice one. Easy drinkable and refershing.

tommann (2974) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2013

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2013
Bottled 18/10/13. A straw blonde coloured beer with a littlw white puddle of head. Sweet buttery and creamy in the nose. A bit of vomit in the mouth Malts aren’t pleasant. Low hops. Not my thing.

Quack-Duck (8341) - Down South, GERMANY - OCT 13, 2013
bottle from Waitrose Sidford. Golden yellow, mid-sized white head. Malty, shy hoppy touch. Hints of cardboard. Not the best German Pils, I wonder why they chose this brewery to represent Germany....
