beerscout (298) - New Windsor, New York, USA - AUG 11, 2012
Bottle. Pours a pale yellow color. Head nice and fluffy and white in color. Aroma was grainy and malty. Flavor was also grainy and malty but finished bitter. Palate was medium in carbonation. This is advertised as a pilsner, but it is more like a pale lager. That is why I marked this lower than others in the category. I prefer other helles as well so I just wasnít crazy about it in any case.

500 ml bottle. Clear straw golden brew. Medium egg-shell white head. Minimal lacing. Aroma: mouldy malts, grain, sulphur, salty crackers, phenols. Flavour is clean grainy, sulphur (from water I believe), minirals, saaz hops, pepper, crackers. Crisp mouthfeel. Dry palate. Allright!

For the tick. Straight from the bottle, so Iím just assuming it would be a clear golden color with a firm white head, but I canít be sure....Aromaís: fruit, grain, like a true pilsner. Retronasal itís more sweet grain with light bitterness. Flavor is sweetish, fruity, light to moderate bitter. Light bodied. Not much of a finish. OK Pilsner.

radassace (45) - SCOTLAND - OCT 17, 2016
660ml bottle poured into a pilsner glass. Bready, yeasty, sweet caramel nose with a bit of a skunky stella type smell. Hmm donít know about this one, Itís ok and refreshing enough,nice and bready, lemony and sweet to begin with but then there is something rather nasty that kicks in. A kind of metallic chemical aftertaste. Shame, itís almost there. This cost me £1.67 a bottle, prefer the Rheinbacher from Aldi at 99p a bottle.

R4N5H (838) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 9, 2016
33cl bottle at The Conrad Hong Kong on 28-Sep-2016. Pale amber with a thin white head. Aroma of grain, sweet malt and grass. Light body and medium carbonation. Slightly sweet, with barley, lemongrass, biscuit and pale malts. Light bitterness. Drinkable, but a pretty average German Pilsner.

WarMan04 (135) - Bydgoszcz, POLAND - OCT 6, 2016
Malty aroma, sulphur, some hoppy hints, surely European hops. Acceptable, but with the one disadvantage. Pale golden colour. Medium, white head. Taste is drym malty and it has something similar to DMS. Hoppy flavours, low to medium bitterness. Light body, medium carbonation. Quite good, dry, refreshing, but itís still an average level.

Bierdimpfe (501) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 4, 2016
Bright pale straw color with low activity. Slightly frothy white 2 finger head. lasting around 5 minutes, and making average legs. Flavors of sweet grains, corn, faint lemon and noble spices. Slick and smooth full body with prickly carbonation. Faint skunky and grassy. Faint flavors, light finish. Highly sugary with low bitterness, but highly crispy. Feels of bread, biscuit, and caramel. Faint lingering finish of saaz and roasted grains. Overall the quality is alright, the ingredients feels fresh and not adjunct. Lacks some bitterness, too sugary, need more boldness. While the body is quite satisfying.

Demens (264) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 15, 2016
0,33l bottle. Clear yellow colour with disappearing white head. Aroma: Grassy, hay with a light metallic tone. With time a light unpleasent moldy aroma comes in. Interesting. Taste: Malty start (the mold aroma is unfourtunatly in the taste) with a sour and light bitter mouthfeel. Quite unbalanced and strange. Not good. Light body with fizzy carbonation. Long bitter and dry finish. Not good at all.
