OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 21, 2003
Interesting appearance: PGC with very faint greenish tinge. A large erectile lasting fine bubbled creamy white head tha generates some blobbly ring lace. Faint mild hops and albumen aroma. Very faint hint of sweet floral nectar as it warms. Soft smooth medium fullness body. Decent sharp bitter hoppy start but it's downhill from there. A short characterless light sweet middle and finish. Aftertaste is a tad harsh bitter and chemical tasting. Somewhat disappointing.

Nice amount of hop bite, smooth and clean, with a slight metallic finish. Easy to drink, but once it got a little warm, quickly turned sour. Drink this one cold.

DarkElf (3033) - La Jolla, California, USA - SEP 7, 2004
(16.9 oz bottle, $2.65) Not being part of some massive global conglomerate, I expected better with this beer; I like the balance of this beer, but the malt tastes somewhat grainy and sweet, and the flavor just seems kind of light in general; Pretty mild hops quietly sits in the background, not doing much; A little heavier on the palate than some other German pilseners; Medium yellow in color and a bit hazy; Just not much going on in the nose, a bit of corn aroma, perhaps smelling faintly of tea, but I’m not getting any hops; Foamy, white head is of average size on the pour, but takes its time dying down to a thin layer, and then exhibits excellent head retention; Not too much lacing however, and it’s very sporadic

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.

Ungstrup (29107) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 29, 2004
A hazy light yellow beer with a huge off-white head. The aroma is sweet hoppy and the flavor is sweet with notes of caramel and a dry hoppy end.

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.

A touch imbalanced in bitterness, but all in all, not a bad pilsener.
