tommann (2488) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2013
500ml bottle. Pours gold with a thin head. Aroma is grass and minerals, a touch metallic. Taste has sweet minerals to start with a sweet grassy and corn finish.

maeib (8391) - 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 (7517) - 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....

Pretty unremarkable beer this, really. A sweetness dominates proceedings. Can’t imagine wanting more than a couple. A bit thin.

DanielBrown (3627) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2013
Bottle from Nike Outlet Store, West Bromwich. Not a brilliant German Pils if I’m absolutely honest with myself (which I rarely am). A bit sweet and greasy. Not too dry or crisp, which is rather contrary to what it says on the label.

downender (5913) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2013
Pale gold with a slight white head and a few bubbles. Sweet, cereal malt and floral hop aroma. Flavour had sweetish fruitiness, some solid malts and lingering bitter finish. Ok.

johndoughty (3716) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2013
Bottle. Bronze with a strong and not really pleasant aroma upon opening. Unusual sweet flavour which didn’t exactly excite me. Not what I had expected and rather disappointing.

leaparsons (7801) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2013
Bottle. Golden with a white foam. Aromas are cabbage, metal and corn with yeast. Hints of banana with base biscuit. Flavours are bready yeast with low lemon and grain. Candy sugar with vegetable and corn notes. OK.

joe19612 (1745) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2013
Bottle. Pours a golden colour with a thin white head, aroma is corn and some hops, the taste is light and with a short dry finish.

rauchbier (3559) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2013
Bottle, from Waitrose Willerby. Gold, thin but lasting white head and moderate condition. Pleasant grainy sweetness and delicate grassy hops in the nose, full bodied and balanced in the mouth with a gentle fruity maltiness offset by a sustained hop bitterness, soft finish with a slightly estery note creeping in towards the end.
