rosenbergh (6560) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 14, 2011
330 ml bottle. From bierzwerg.de.
Hazy pale yellow colour with small white head. Aroma is grainy malt, fruity and herbal hoppiness and some mild sourness. Flavour is fruity hoppy with citrus, some herbal notes and malty body. Fruitiness reminds of Pale Ales. This really hits the spot.

bartlebier (1530) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - JAN 21, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2013 24x33cl, local Edeka - I consider this, not their Gold/Diplom Pils Waldhaus’ true contribution to SW-German pils culture, although it comes with a few caveats. Btw "Extra herb" is a SW-local specification and a bit of a joke if you are familiar with N-German pilsners, Jever-style. Palatable mix of hop cone freshness in the nose and malt dryness: fresh peppery/grassy/mildly piney hops, dry malt backbone with a fair amount of yeasty froth, appealing cloudy body. This is full of taste, but not really thirst-quenching as a "pils", it is too dry & yeasty for that. This beer/brewery was initially a revelation when I moved to the land of Rothaus and Ganter, but now, even with a case in the cellar, I usually have 2 max., just for taste, as it leaves my mouth cardboard dry... yet have to admire the unrelenting HQ ingredients and full taste.

kappldav123 (4729) - GERMANY - NOV 30, 2010
Bottle looks good, the beer in the glass also, zippy, nice head. Starts hoppy and dry, a bit sourish, bitter, not too much. Finish well balanced, more spicy, a bit sweet. Great beer!

bottle from Bierzwerg, Hazy pale yellow colour, large and very persistent white head. Slightly yeasty, grassy-hoppy nose. Light-bodied, shy malty background with hints of yeast, pleasant hop flavours are there: grassy, hoppy, resiny and with shy citrus hints. Very nice.

yrstruly (333) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 22, 2013
Pours light gold with a fine, white head. Aroma is of German hops, light grassy and floral. Taste is clean and relatively dry, with a distinct hop finish. Hoppy pils are hard to find around these parts, so this beer was much appreciated!

kjc51478 (383) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - JAN 31, 2012
330ml Bottle. Appearance is cloudy, yellow color with medium, off-white head. Aroma is full Pilsner with strong pale malts and herbal hops. Taste is similar with pale malts and herbal hops dominant along with some mild citrus and apple flavors. Palate is medium-bodied, smooth texture, average carbonation, and a dry finish. This unfiltered version of their Pilsner is definitely a delight to drink.

peponi (269) - POLAND - MAY 15, 2014
Aroma: ridiculously close to witbier aroma (without coriander). Appearance: massively hazy straw color, huge lasting head. Taste: medium bitterness (herbs, wrzos, pine – similar combination like in Fraoch), dry, slightly watery. Palate: low/medium body, high carobnation, herbal finish. Overall: Indeed, this is extra herb beer, but this beer cannot be classfied as pilsner ! It is a strange hybryd – looks like witbeer, taste is similar to Fraoch. It doesn’t change the fact that this beer is very interesting and unique.
