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

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2005
Bottle from Asda. Fairly bland pilsner with decent hop character/bitterness, but nothing to write home about for sure. This sort of beer doesn’t deserve a full review.

winkle (477) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 11, 2005
Bottled: Not the brewers best product, but a decent enough Pils anyway. Smooth, medium malt body, some hops in aroma and finish. A solid sessional I would think.

Excellent pils! Smooth, lightly sweet, malty brew. Good hoppy flavours too, these carry on into the finish..liked it lots! Asda.

rauchbier (3665) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2005
Bottle, from Asda. Straw gold, thin shortlived white head, moderate condition. Gentle fruity grain and good noble hop notes in the nose, soft and clean in the mouth with sweet grain well balanced by flowery hops and a touch of chalkiness. Solid hop bitterness in the finish that is never too assertive.

DanielBrown (4112) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2005
Bottle from Asda. Very pale gold, with a slim, soft, white head. Creamy, dry malt aroma. Pretty bland and very watery stuff. No dryness, bitterness or hit. Boring.

JayBaxter (407) - Greater Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2005
Pale yellow colour with a pleasant enough aroma ( draught lager ? ) Better than some wearing the Pilsener badge.

ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 24, 2005
Yellow beer with a fast disappearing white head. Light malty flavor with a faint sweetness and a grassy hoppy touch. Malty hay-like flavor with a dry hoppy finish.

ashbeero (51) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 15, 2005
Pale golden beer with a small and quickly disappearing head Clean malty aroma with some grassy hops. Flavour dominated by maltiness but finishing towards more floral hoppiness. Soft bitterness and decent carbonation. German rather than Czech style pilsener.

hefevice (72) - Brisbane beer desert, AUSTRALIA - JUN 2, 2005
Bottle. Sparkling clear pale gold, not much head and what there was didn’t stick around (although I am suspicious of my glass). Sweet malty, cookie dough aroma with very subtle flowers from the hops. Taste starts with the sweet malt, then finishes lightly dry and bitter. Not being a big hop head I find it much better balanced in this respect than the few other Pilsner styles tried so far. Light slightly watery mouthfeel. Very crisp and refreshing.
