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

Ron (3424) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUL 22, 2011
Bottle at the Brooklyn Diner in Times square. Pours a pale straw color. A light hoppy aroma. Light body, very smooth with a delicate hoppy flavor and slightly metallic finish. Decent Pilsner!

Kavu (3775) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 16, 2011
Very ordinary lager. Pours clear golden, aroma and flavor are malts. Not bad, but boring.

crossovert (10770) - Illinois, USA - JUL 3, 2011
Maß @ Weihenstephaner. It is a pretty tasty pils. It has some nice sweetness to it and a crisp, dry finish.

ComradeK (1092) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 25, 2011
500ml bottle. Pours a clear pale gold, with a large white head, which fades quite quickly, but leaves good lace. Mild, nutty malt mixes with herbal hops on the nose. Initially, the hops are quite mild, but they rise quickly to a nice mix of herbal and citrus notes. They give way to a caramel malt body, with a resurgence of hops in the finish and a nutty aftertaste. A decent pilsner, and very typically German.

craftycarl21 (2338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 21, 2011
On tap at Weihenstephaner in Hackescher Markt in Berlin. Clear light golden pour with a beautiful frothy head. Aroma of sweet malt, pils hops, and honey. Flavor has a great hop bite that nicely balances the aforementioned sweet malt. Palate is somewhat light on the carbonation and crisp. Very nice pils.

Koelschtrinker (15819) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 4, 2011
Hopfig-süßer Antrunk, das Bier verfällt dann in einen langen, eher langweiligen Part, der von einer lieblich erscheinenden Herbe geprägt ist. Der Hopfen ist hier nur noch untertönig aktiv und trägt zum Geschmackswesen des Bieres kaum noch etwas bei, während sich die milde Herbe ausbreitet und im Nachgeschmack den gesamten Raum ausfüllt. Ein untypisches und in Teilen deutlich zu lasches Pils. Im nachgeschmack erwarte ich einen Anstieg der Herbe oder Bitterkeit, hier existiert kaum ein Nachgeschmack, wenn doch, ist er wässrig und damit viel zu wild. Ein weiteres Beispiel dafür, dass auch eine gute Brauerei nicht nur Gutes produzieren kann! Test vom 5.11.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,8,8,6,8,7 - 7,70

RexTalionis (3436) - FINLAND - JUN 1, 2011
On tap at Weihenstephaner Bräustuberl. Poured clear golden in colour with white creamy head. Floral and mild hoppy in aroma with some malty notes. Floral and slightly fruity in flavour with some light hoppyness as well. Mild bitter in aftertaste.

maneliquor (3482) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 11, 2011
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Solid for it’s style but nothing out of this world. A mildy bitter/dry finish. Good

mikkopen (1015) - Oulu, FINLAND - APR 23, 2011
500 ml bottle. Pale golden colour, thin white head. Aroma of buttery malt and grassy hops. The flavour is malty, slightly buttery, with a medium-bitter hoppy finish. Medium to thin-bodied. Nothing to get excited about.
