Fatehunter (1414) - 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.

Fris aroma heel klein beetje fruitig weinig diepgang. Helder gouden kleuren erg licht zelfs, iets te. Standaard pils met een vrij lekkere bite en prettige ruime carbonatie. Aangename bitter zonder al te veel diepgang. Een van de betere pils.

Classic German pilsner with a very bitter upfront taste and a very bitter after taste. Golden yellow color and very thin composition. Beer is a pass in my book.

Clear golden body, large fluffy white head, soapy lacing. Light bodied, clean floral, spicy, and citric hops. Mellow grainy cereals. Simple, but pleasant. Light bodied with moderate to lively carbonation, semi-dry, mild bitterness.

Piw (130) - Rüsselsheim, GERMANY - JAN 11, 2015
Unterdurchschnittlich Pils. Klar und golden mit durschnittlicher Schaumkrone. Insgesamt zu wässrig, es mangelt an Aroma. Leicht bitter.

Cool_Bond (1638) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - JAN 6, 2015
The aroma of wheat and pilsner malt. The taste is malty but most watery. Slightly metal also in taste. Okay bitterness that fills the upper part of the mouth for a long while. Still think the beer is good if it is really cold and if you are thirsty. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

joejames (231) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Bottle to shaker glass. Pours straw gold, quick one finger head, some lacing and retention. Aroma of grass and herbs. Taste is sweet at first, then has a medium light bitterness in the middle. Light bodied, medium carbonation, watery mouth feel. Finishes lightly bitter then dries. Notes of sweet bread, herbs, hay and salt. Typical German pils, easy to drink but no frills.
