Honestly, not the best pilsener I’ve had. A little bit of unpleasant bitterness in the hops.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

This isn’t a bad pilsener, however I probably wouldn’t buy it again because it is too bitter for the amount of flavour it contains - the bitterness tends to dominate more than it should. Still a pleasent drink though.
ADDED 1 December: It seems Oakes is complaining about people rating pilsner beers low due to their bitterness. I realise this is the style buht in my opinion the bitterness here is too dominant.

Pretty normal Pilsner flavors. Nothing off, typical Pilsner taste., I would to have this fresh. This beer did not disappoint but also was not memorable.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Clear, bright yellow pour. Topped by a white, frothy, lacy head with real staying power. Firm cracker malt, a touch of honey, and vibrant saaz aromatics. Flavor is clean grain, honey-kissed crackers, and a touch of lemongrass. Light body, perfect carb, and great herbal/floral bitterness in the finish.
Awesome, old-school pils? Yes.

Geruch unspektakulär, Geschmack typgerecht schlank. Nachtrunk bitter-herb, so wünscht man sich ein Pils.

Meh, it’s fine, does everything a pilsner should do I guess. Smells normal, looks normal, tastes as you expect it too. I wasn’t blown away by this but nor was I disappointed. Solid, dependable you might say.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice thick white head over a pale golden body. Grassy and fruity aroma, extremely volatile at pouring. Sweet hops at first touch, with a developing bitterness. Nice grassy aftertaste. Very small bubbles, but fizzy palate makes a very refreshing but full bodied pils. Thumbs up !
