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

downender (5924) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2007
500ml Bottle bought at ASDA. Nothing out of the ordinary to look at, but aroma contained a decent does of grassy hops with a touch of sweet malt. Flavour was a well-balanced, with some hoppy bitterness and a decent finish. A good German pils.

Grovlam (4152) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 26, 2007
Bottle. Three finger egg-white looking head that mostly lasted. Clear sparkling body. Excellent lacing. Light dusty grain, caramel, grass, straw. Medium bodied with a lively carbonation and a light dry texture. Flavor was light hops bitterness with hint of sweetness. Nice refreshing dry bitter finish. Well brewed beer, and one of the best Pilsner I have ever tasted.

JorisPPattyn (7722) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 9, 2007
Draught Greenish gold beer with retreating white head, leaving lace. Sweet malty nose with a touch of greenery & grass. Very dry, not sweet, flavour with quite traceable noble hops. Ends vegetable, even Belgian white chicory like. Light to medium body, quite carbonated & refreshing. Nice, but a bit "general" Pils. Makes up for a nice starter of the day.

edwardfricker (9) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAR 5, 2007 does not count
A very clenan pilsener but with a overly flowery saaz hop taste without enough bitterness.

jackson220 (136) - new lenox, Illinois, USA - FEB 25, 2007
Not a bad pilsner. Decent enough of hop character and quite a solid malt body, and bitterness to end. Not outstanding but worth a try

faroeviking (10294) - FAROE ISLANDS - FEB 14, 2007
Bottle. Clear goldenish colour with a medium white head. Aroma of malt, fruity hops and bit grassy. Flavour is crisp, malty, good hoppiness, bit sweet. Nice bitter finish. A tasty German pilsener.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - SEP 7, 2006
33 cl. Bottle. No yeast at the bottom. Pale golden clear colour with a little head. Very hoppy aroma with notes of sweet malt. Malty, fruity and a light bitter and dry finish.

Nicko (191) - Ashfield, AUSTRALIA - AUG 30, 2006
Frothy white head on very clear yellow body. Slightly grainy on the nose, reminds me a bit of James Boags; not a good thing. Crisp in the mouth and a little bitter, with a hoppy taste that lingers. Not a sessional pilsener.

Bottle. Pale yellow colour with a big white head. Malty, fruity, hoppy aroma and a light sweet straw, hoppy taste. Medium body with a sweet light dry hay finish.
