Fatehunter (1514) - 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.

PiwnyMarek (287) - Łomża, POLAND - APR 18, 2015
Słabe. W aromacie wyczuwalny DMS. Z wyglądu słomkowe z delikatną pianą. W smaku szału nie ma. Tyle w temacie...

TedE (353) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 18, 2015
330 ml bottle into glass. Sweet malt nose. Pale amber with large white head. A few bubbles. Watery, a little bitter but a full-on sweet finish. Cardboard and paper. Average.

jaszymku (90) - POLAND - APR 15, 2015
Słomkowe klarowne do bólu, ładna piana, drobna, odrobinę się osadza i znika dość szybko. W aromacie zero chmielu, głównie słód i odrobina DMSu, jakby kukurydza. W smaku wodniste, słaba goryczka. Nic specjalnego.

Very good German import Pilsner. Best to be enjoyed when on tap in the right glass.

Vestlake (181) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - APR 9, 2015
Bottle pour. Aroma is roasted malt and grains. Taste is similar except the combination of the two just didn’t work for me. Would not drink again.

Bottle. Clear, gold with a medium to small head. Aroma was kind of skunky, which surprised me out of a brown bottle. Taste was the usual German pilsner, with grains, straw, hay and a bitter finish.
