Slightly bitter, mild, with a fragrance of hops - our pilsner is a cut above the ordinary. A beer with character.

.2l pour from tap into a tiny shaker pint. Yellow and clear with lots of carbonation and a fizzy white head. Light bodied, fairly thin, moderately crisp, a little watery, and dry. Nose is light malt, very faint citrus. Taste takes a backseat to the dryness. Pretty bitter. Not too much going on here.

Clear golden colour. Bread and cereal aroma. A bit sweet, a bit grassy. Smooth texture.

On tap (16 oz) @ Mule Bar.

Appearance: Clear pale golden-blond with a small white head, good retention and heavy lacing.

Aroma: The nose is really fresh with breadied cereals, pils malt, nice grassy presence and mild hoppy presence.

Taste: Slightly sweet with grassy presence, bread, honeyed cereals, mild peppery notes, mild skunky notes and mild bitterness.

Palate: Light body. Medium carbonation. Clean and crisp. Rather dry finish. Mild grassy aftertaste.

Overall: Extremely easy drinkable... the glass was empty way too quickly. Clean and crisp with a nice focus on the pils malt. It’s kind of chewy as well because of the honeyed notes. Really tasty stuff.

On tap at Mule bar, Winooski. Clear gold pour with thin lacy white head. Aroma is really fresh, crisp and grainy, bready, light grassy notes. Taste is grainy, nice light dry bready malt notes, very light skunk, dusty hop, grassy. Palate is dry, light bodied with med carbonation. Tasty.

Really nice pilsner, but not the greatest out there. Has a nice look to is and is easy to drink, I just didn’t find it that special.

Spisane z Notatek kiedy Ratebeer był w zeszycie i główne poszukiwania nowych piw i smaków, odkrywanie świata to były głównie piwa zagraniczne w dużej mierze niemieckie, Piwo wypite: czerwiec 2008, Z notatek wynika że smakowało jak na tamten czas :)

On tap. Golden in color with small white head. Aroma is sweet and malty with grain notes. Light and sweet malty flavor. Very drinkable. Not bad.

This is definitely better than most eurolagers or even "pilseners." Light yellow pale body with lasting pillowy white head and nice lacing. Grainy aroma. Taste is richly malty with a slight hoppy balance. Even though it’s not very flavourful, it tastes rich and full, not thin and watery like other macro lagers.

C’est une de mes pils favorites. Elle a une robe claire, une mousse légčre. Elle a comme toute bonne pils, un équilibre entre le malt et le houblon. Le mieux est de la boire sur une terasse. Ce n’est que du bonheur.

Pint bottle with date code of 7164 which means (unless I am mistaken, PLEASE let me be mistaken) this beer was bottled sometime in April 2014. That’s right. Triangle Wine of Morrisville, N.C. sold me a beer that’s almost nine months old at full price. Well this happens with imports but hopefully not generally to this extent. Anyway... Into a Sam Smith Nonic! A: Light brassy gold color with turbulent carbonation producing a prodigious rocky head of tight white. Excellent retention and lacing S: Grassy hops on the front of the nose, with a wisp of white bread following. Great smell. T: Much like the nose, the taste hits the tongue with grassy straw hop notes. Finishes with a balance of bready notes of more sourdough than white. Pretty dry. Delicious. M: These people are the masters of body, carbonation and mouthfeel. Light silky body with relentless but gentle carbonation. The mouthfeel of this is directly on par with champagne. Excellent. O: The embodiment of elegance in a beer. Simple, expertly executed and a hallmark of the style. NOTE: If anyone notices that I have misread the date code please let me know and I will immediately retract my comment. This beer is still excellent regardless of when it was bottled.
