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

Very mild and easy to drink. Would be good just about anytime. Lemony, bitter hop profile. Good thirst quencher without being too filling.

fletchfighters (1149) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 13, 2015
500 ML bottle Yellow straw color, bright white fluffy head. Great lacing. Nose is cereal, grain, grassy and spicy hops. Taste is pretty much the same. Cereal, grain, a tad bit more spicy hops than grassy hops. Touches of lemongrass and black pepper. Clean beer. Finishes bone dry with touches of lemongrass and pepper. Good but not remarkable

MatthijsE (897) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2015
Bottle @ home. Pours clear and golden with nice white head, which stays till end with lacing on the glass. Aroma is grassy hops plus some hints of bread, malt. The beer is dry, bitter with light body and high carbonation. Leaves medium bitter aftertaste.

Tmoney99 (11228) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 18, 2014
Bottle. Poured a clear pale color with an average to large frothy white head that lasted and had good lacing. Moderate grass hop aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet dry finish of moderate duration. This beer met my expectations.

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Appealing aroma of malt and floral hops. Clear straw amber color with a generous 1" rocky white head, strips of lace. Taste is clear light malt that adds floral hops and carbonation on the swallow, all parts moving neatly through a short finish. A thirst quenching pilsner, better than most.

Kauge (410) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 12, 2014
Tap at Weihenstephaner pub in Tbilisi (40 cl / 5.50 GEL). Near clear pale golden; head bright white, beautiful, soft, fluffy. Excellent retention, fantastic lacing! Bubbling still after a while. This is a 5/5! Nose... at first it feels like sniffing a handful of noble hop pellets... it just seems so raw and grassy, I almost get the feeling this beer is meant for cows to eat. The citrusy-rhubarby raw sourness-bitterness is overwhelming - I am not a fan but I’m terribly intrigued. Taste is kinda similar with the raw, grassy hoppiness very much present, but it also has a palate-scraping grainy sidenote. Palate on the dry side, slightly sticky on the roof of the mouth, grainy, thick but not heavy, carbonation active. A strange, raw Pilsener, I’ve never had anything like this before. Could not help but feel intrigued, and I did enjoy contemplating on it - that calls for extra points, doesn’t it.

yngwie (14342) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 7, 2014
Bottle. It’s a crystal clear golden beer with a finger-thick, dense, off-white head leaving cute lacings. The aroma has a little touch of pale malts, with a nice fruityness, some grass and pine cones and a faint citrusy touch. It’s medium to full-bodied, with a pleasant carbonation level, semi-dry on the palate. Grains, fruityness, some sweetness and a nice, balancing bitterness in the flavor, with some grassy, piney and faintly peppery hints in the finish. This is what a pilsner should taste, far from the bland industrial lagers claiming to be a pilsner. Moreish. 141207

Bottle 330ml @ Geokkjer
Pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, grass and floral. Taste is medium sweet and light to medium bitter with a long malty, grassy and floral finish. Body is light to medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

Zoals zoveel pils uit Duitsland is ook deze weer van een beste kwaliteit. Drinkt heerlijk weg. Mooie witte kraag en mooi gouden kleur in het glas.

Buona birra, in linea con lo stile che però mi è stata servita ad una temperatura non adatta. Aroma di fieno e lievemente citrico, in blocco miele d’acacia, pane croccante e finale erbaceo secco, quanto amaro immediato. Le pilsner rimangono ottime birre, ma aspettavo meglio.
