DBob5150 (193) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - NOV 15, 2013
11.2 oz. bottle from ALDI. I was more impressed with head on this, than the body. I t poured a very pale greenish-yellow with a thick frothy white head. Excellent lacing. Aroma is faint grass and dough. Taste is hay, slightly astringent, yet crisp. Not bad for the price ($1/bottle), not sure if I’d buy again or not.

Light yellow lager with not much aroma or taste. This is just an average brew with about the only note worthy thing to it is that it has a slight hay flavor. Not saying that is a bad thing but it is the only real flavor to this one. Overall typical for the style.

mathieuc (1189) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 1, 2013
Pours a dull yellow with a thick white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of light noble hops and earthy. Taste is dry and lightly bitter. Some grainy notes. Herbal finish. Body is light, mouthfeel oily. Bah.

Bottle. Clear golden body, big white head. Aroma is floral with bread, refreshingly hoppy. Nice dry and crisp malty taste, though a bit short. Nicely balanced bitterness, but an almost non-existant aftertaste does some damage.

Je parle ici des canettes de 500mL sous-titrées ’Pils Legende’ disponibles au Québec. Une bière claire qui goûte les céréales, l’herbe, le houblon. Une amertume un peu ferreuse mais qui ne reste pas assez longtemps pour devenir désagréable. Un goût net, défini, tranchant. Très plaisante à mon palais, le fameux 4-pack est souvent dans mon frigo.

cazort (514) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 24, 2013
Bought an an ALDI in Vermont; very cheap, just over $1 a bottle, and I was very pleased. Classic German Pilsner character...very light, hoppy, and bitter. Crisp mouthfeel and flavor. Moderate bitterness...very refreshing. Significant metallic taste, but this didn’t detract from my enjoyment of the brew. I would definitely buy again. Not the best Pilsner (it’s brewed by the same brewery as Bitburger but I think I pretty clearly prefer Bitburger, among other Pilsners), but at this price I really can’t complain.

Clear, gold color. Short lasting, white head. Aroma of malt and hop, but not very intensive. Light bitterness, light body. Fizzy carbonation.

northropfrye (2167) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 4, 2013
Very clear, slightly yellow body with foamy white head. Initially smells like Corn Pops cereal then just slightly metallic grains. Taste is faintly bitter, grainy, watery finish. Acceptable but nothing interesting.

tnkw01 (1058) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Bottle. Golden in color. Really nice head. Just average in both taste and aroma. Taste is what one would think a German Pilsner would taste like.

vinivini (325) - BELARUS - AUG 9, 2013
A rather good example of Pilsner. Malt: hay. Hops: grass to herbs. Taste: medium bitter, light sour.
