Oakes (13271) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 5, 2001
Dry, hoppy, lean - quality North German pils, which evidently is not every Ratebeer guy’s cup of tea, but for those of you who do appreciate a well-made pils, this is one to seek out.

thewolf (11382) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2007
Bottle. Pours very pale yellow with a clear greenish hue to it. Head is medium and very foamy - like thick dishwasher foam. Surprisingly powerful aroma, though it has little besides a definite hay-like malty character. Mouthfeel is nice and round, filling my mouth well. Flavour is quite nice for the type. Some initial sweetness, leading on to quite a bitter edge. The hops are quite peppery.
