Fech (291) - Parsippany, New Jersey, USA - APR 8, 2012
Seit 1050. Grassy malty semi sweet hops. Light head, slightly skunky. Decent flavor nothing too special as far as german beers go but the recipe has history so you gotta try it once.

BeerZack (288) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - APR 1, 2008
Pale straw yellowy, ugh. With a surprisingly appetizing fluffy white head that leaves clumps of foam lace. Sweet light and Pils malts mix with whiffs of heavy carbonation, slight grassy and floral hop impression. Slightly sweet and grainy biscuity malt with light floral hop bittering. Subtle. Smooth and almost creamy moderate carbonation make this light bodied Pils extremely drinkable.

average appearance, smelled pretty good though.. initially taste is good for a pilsener but palate is slightly stale - mightve had something to do with the expiration date 5 years ago though

Argonian (273) - Athens, GREECE - OCT 20, 2012
On tap. Yellow-golden body, with a rich white head that slowly diminishes, leaving a fair lace. Nice grassy, floral aroma at the start, but as the beer gets warmer, notes of skunk begin to appear. Light bitter taste, with notes of grass, but very watery. Very watery texture, soft to medium carbonation, thin body. For me, not the best example of a german pils, had much better ones.

ToolHead (266) - København, DENMARK - APR 7, 2004
50 cl bottle; served in Nastro Azzurro glass. Golden w/ decent head. Pleasant, inviting, softly hoppy aroma. Nice, very clean, well-balanced taste w/ a fine hop presence. Ultra-smooth, luxurious mouthfeel.

dwedin (249) - Happy Valley, Oregon, USA - NOV 15, 2006
Bread, grassy hop aromas. Sublte malt flavor with a sharp bitterness but still satisfying. Very crisp finish with lingering sour bitterness.

geophagus (244) - Lubin, POLAND - AUG 4, 2013
(Draught at 17th IBBF, sample) Straw, clear color. Small, fast falling, white, lacing head. Soft body, watery texture, moderate carbonation. Aroma: Soft, minimal hoppy (herbal/spicy), popcorn, corn, pale malts, grain. Taste: Soft, a bit unpleasant bitterness, corn, grain pale malts. Boring pilsener with weird aroma.

Hop_Hedonist (243) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 25, 2014
Good pils - very refreshing - salivating herbal aftertaste - decent body for a pilsner.

Betty (235) - Walgett, NSW, AUSTRALIA - AUG 29, 2003
Pretty standard pils, but quite nice all the same. Good use of saaz, went down the hatch ok. What more can I say? Any sublety lost on me a bit though. I guess I don't really get into pilsners too much...

Berley31 (230) - New Brunswick, CANADA - NOV 14, 2009
A: Poured with a large, frothy white head that diminished slowly to 1/2-finger size or so. Body is bright yellow and mostly clear, with a slight haziness to it. A very good-looking pilsener. S: Aroma, however, is pretty fluent with cooked corn. A slight bitterness lingers. T: Despite how attractive it looks, this is a pretty basic pilsener in terms of flavor. Cooked corn again. Crisp, slightly dry finish. M: Light-to-medium bodied with a slightly creamy texture, and average-to-soft carbonation. D: Easy to get down at first, but the corn becomes a little sickening by the time you’re through. I don’t think I’d rush to get it again.
