Fatehunter (1205) - 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.

Bottle. Pale straw, carbonated white head. Aroma is doughy malts. Flavour has some nice hops to balance. Not bad.

BuckeyeBoy (2709) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 8, 2014
From a tall .5 liter can. With a big thanks to Alex for bringing this over. Pours out a crisp pale straw topped with a white head. Nose is sweet malts fresh cut grass and some dough. Taste is as the nose with a clean and refreshing taste.

nose: i dont know why the smell of this makes me go to beer heaven even after ive tried many pilsners etc. there’s just something about it [when i get it fresh, otherwise it just skunks]. to me, it smells like a very specific new leather boot from mexico and ficus trees, or something like that. palate: beautifully balanced. it’s all in the initial atack and then it trails off graciously with the nuanced hops hanging on for an extra little bit. it’s not necessarily distinctive in flavors but it gets it ’right’. nuff said!

Mainuh_man (123) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 31, 2014
0.3L bottle. Pours clear straw color with a frothy white head with decent lacing. Subtle sweet grain aromas on this: honey, cereal, and some hints of orange, Mild sweetness at beginning, quickly transitions to nutty malt followed by herby hops. Finishes with long, nuttiness and dry hop linger. Light body with a slick mouthfeel and average carbonation. For a macro-brewed german pils, this one is actually pretty decent. Really nice grain aromas, and ok flavor profile. This style isn’t my fav., but this one is certainly better than average.

daje (2450) - NORWAY - AUG 25, 2014
Bottle. Clear golden body with a large foamy white head. Aroma of light malts and grass, light bittersweet taste of pilsner malt, hops, with a dry bitter finish. A pretty standard german pilsner.
