Fatehunter (2208) - 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.

0.33l bottle. Golden color with white head. Aroma is malty and herbal. Taste is malty with light bitterness. Thin to medium body. Overall it’s nice and easy drinkable beer.

Clear pale straw color Bit of bitter hop funk to cover blah malt Pretty pedestrian run of the mill Decent quality just not memorable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Früher habe ich es gerne getrunken. Weiß nicht ob die Zusammensetzung verändert wurde?! Jedenfalls kann ich nicht mehr als 2 Trinken dann fängt Sodbrennen an ohne ende was ich sonst nie bekomme.

Zilb (150) - Fontenay Sous Bois, FRANCE - AUG 12, 2016
Bue en pression aux Canaries. Blonde limpide avec petit col de mousse a longue tenue. Carbonation faible. Peu d’aromes...  Assez aqueuse, final leger de malt. Trop aqueuse et legere en gout. Pas terrible...

Ysok02 (905) - MOns, BELGIUM - AUG 9, 2016
Une pilsener très basique à la robe dorée, fine mousse, nez discret vaguement houblonné et bouche légère et manquant de complexité.

Nurmis (344) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUL 26, 2016
50cl can 4,7% abv. Pours golden medium white head. Grainy and malty taste, dry and floral hopped. Basic pilsner, nothing wrong with it in my opinion.

Zapach mało intensywny, słód, siano, trawa. Kolor słomkowy, klarowne. Piana obfita, średniopęcherzykowa, szybko znika. W smaku lekka słodycz, średnia pełnia, słód, trawa, zboże. Goryczka niska, wysycenie średnie.
