3fourths (8032) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 2, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2013 500ml bottles, rating adjusted June 2013.
Clear gold with a quick white head.
Sharp, semi-sweet dry cracker malt.
Some saaz hop resemblance.
Not a lot of hop juiciness.
Definitely shows the pellets.
Mild laundry detergent / soap notes.
Medium-light body; low sweetness; medium bitterness.
Texture too coarse and grainy for me.
Still one of the German pilsners in rotation for me at home in Colorado, if I can find fresh bottles that haven’t seen much light.

Quack-Duck (7912) - Down South, GERMANY - AUG 5, 2009
bottle, bought at Weltenburg. Clear pale yellow with agreen glow, large and creamy white head. Resiny hoppy nose. Light-bodied, crisp and clean, lots of resiny-grassy hop flavours ith a touch of hay on a solid malty background. Delicious.

BMan1113VR (7858) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 1, 2012
Bottle (235C1202). Pours with a pale yellow golden hue, great clarity. Fluffy white head that lasts and leaves good lace. Aromas are of bready, grainy, pilsner malt. Nice malty richness, low DMS notes, some what strong mineral character. Quite a bit of hop on the nose. Seems pretty fresh. Herbal, grassy, noble character. Smells pretty solid. Malt seems to be the slightly dominant aroma. Clean yeast wise. Flavors are bready, malty. Light metallic note. A very dry and strong bitterness. Lightly grassy. Some lingering pils malt hay like qualities. Crisp. Very clean. Quite fresh. Bitterness is slightly out of balance as far as drinkability is concerned. Good malt though. Lively bubbles, crisp, clean, dry. Light bodied. Good and remarkably fresh tasting.

MartinT (7811) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 2, 2010
My Bottom Line:
This quenching Pilsener provides elegant herbal hoppiness within discreet barley sweetness for a pleasant but unmemorable pint.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sticky head of foam garnishes the misty pale blond.
-The malts could definitely be crisper.
-The soft frothiness of the carbonation is engaging.
-A light noble hop bitterness is accompanied by barley sugar.

Bottle.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein goldgelbes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch hopfig malzig, grasig. Geschmack hopfig bitter, malzig, leicht würzig.

crossovert (7403) - Illinois, USA - MAY 8, 2011
It is a decent pils with a malty, almost spicy edge. I had it form the minikeg and it was satisfying on a hot day.

rosenbergh (6828) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 13, 2009
330 ml bottle. From Germany. Hazy golden colour with thin white head. Hoppy, grassy aroma with some sweet lemon, like ice tea in a good way. Flavour is raw hoppy, bready and some bitterness. Very good German Pilsener. Want to have another one.

DuffMan (6745) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 17, 2010
Bottle. Bright gold, clear, robust frothy white head, good retention and early lace. Pale cereal grain aroma, grassy and bitter lemon accents. Clean pale malt backbone, nice husky grain flavour with a grassy bitter hoppy finish. Solid quality pilsener.

motelpogo (6700) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 15, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2003 dandelion honey tea aroma which is very full. soft smooth texture. it becomes extremely bitter without disappearing in the mouth. almost aggressively soft and smooth if such a thing is possible. i don't think i've ever had a beer i found too bitter but i was pleased that this beer went towards the edge of my bitterness tolerance

Sampled at Viti, pours golden with a white head. Fairly standard, crisp, refreshing pilsener.
