Fatehunter (1406) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - APR 20, 2012
Poured into a pint glass. Clear, golden color with a finger and a half of white head. Lots of bubbles visible. Head collapsed but left good lacing. I should have poured this into a Pilsener glass. Smells like freshly milled barley with the slightest bit of citrus. First a "nothing" taste... water, followed by a dry, bitter taste. That’s all there is to it. Clean texture, not nearly as carbonated as it looks and a light body. I used to think German Pilseners were uncomfortably bitter, but this one tastes pleaseant enough. Maybe after the assault my tongue took from imperial IPAs, this seems a lot more toned down. Either way, it’s a one trick pony in taste and smell, but it looks beautiful. The best way to drink this is in Germany on a cobblestone street side table in the proper glass. Spend an afternoon watching the world go by.

Masterkush7 (568) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 25, 2014
Bright golden colour with a foamy white head. Aroma of malts. The taste is bready malts which gives away to an assertive, grassy bitterness. A good, fairly typical, pilsner with quite a bitter flavour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

panzerwolf (86) - FINLAND - DEC 24, 2014
Pours clear gold. Bread and malts, a light bite to the taste which I really found pleasant, as it lingers, but isn’t too strong. A very nice pilsener.

puredelusion (47) - Lviv, UKRAINE - DEC 21, 2014
0,33 bottle. Pours clean straw colour with high white head. Hops, litlle bit of apples, grass in aroma. Lively carbonation, light body. Taste is medium sweet and sone light bitterness, dry, with some metallic notes in the finish. Well-rounded, but I’d say that it’s even not enough bitter as for the pilsener. Well drinkable, but nothing too exciting.

rotaman14 (169) - Potsdam, GERMANY - DEC 18, 2014
Blassgolden, weisse Schaumkrone. Riecht nach Gräsern, Erde, Stroh. Dezent bitter, leicht wässrig. Ist für den Stil und den Preis aber vollkommen OK.

WillemsUrenkel (664) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - DEC 12, 2014
0,33 l bottle. Redesigned label. Pale golden and very clear in the glass, nearly watery. Longlasting white head. Mash and grain on the nose. Starts grainy, later a little bit bitter. Polished. Typical industrial german Pilsener. Not really bad but also nothing real special.

Sampled from a 50 cl bottle. Bright golden colour with a foamy white head. Aroma of malts. The taste is bready malts which gives away to an assertive, grassy bitterness. A good, fairly typical, pilsner with quite a bitter flavour.
