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

skortila (5240) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JUL 29, 2007
Tap @ Jan Primus. Grassy, skunky aroma. Pale, yellow coloured with not much head. Taste is sweetis, quite empty with grassy, crappy hops. This stuff is no good.

detroitsteel (235) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2007
Berlin Trip beer No.8 On draft at Weihenstephan Cafe, Berlin. Very blond, fluffy white head. No Aroma. Sharp citrus hops in the flavour with a wood finish which mellows away. A fairly light bodied ok pils.

Maria (10214) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUN 11, 2007
Light straw with an OK head. The aroma is hoppy in a promising way. The flavour has notes of malt, caramel and hops in a nice harmony, and the bitterness is nice. I would have been disappointed it this wasn’t nice because of this brewery’s nice weiss biers - but I liked this one!

thewolf (12027) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2007
Bottle. Very hazy pale yellow with a thin film head. Aroma is grainy, and a grapefruit edge to it. Flavour is not that sweet. Neither is it bitter, but has a dry sourness to it. It is quite full, but not overly interesting.

downender (7846) - 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 (4206) - 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 (9393) - Ursel, 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.
