Fatehunter (1816) - 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.

huineman (454) - Madrid, SPAIN - NOV 25, 2015
Pours bright golden with conspicuous bubbles and large, white sticky head. Aroma is mild: porridge, cereal, bread, lemon zest. Taste is watery, fizzy and quite bitter. Nice refreshing simple pilsner.

AaronTDubs (103) - - OCT 29, 2015
Yellow to golden color. Clear. Medium carbonation. Smells like light bread, grains. A touch of hop aroma. Has a grainy taste. Quite dry with some decent hoppiness coming forward. Finishes slightly not-clean. Not a bad beer, but there is nothing interesting about it.

YantarCoast (584) - Moscow, RUSSIA - OCT 18, 2015
500ml can. Pours clear yellow with a small white head. Aroma is malty and grainy and so is the taste. Medium butter finish. Average pilsener.
