drpimento (2267) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Not bad for two-year-old German Pilsner stored at room temperature. Small White head that didn't last too long except for a little bit of lace and a clear golden color. Aroma is malt crackers bread dough and a little hops. Flavors Lake aroma with malt sweetness and carbonic tang in control hop bitterness in the background. Palate is decent. Good drinking beer although a bit sweet for a Pilsner. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rune (8173) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 29, 2014
330ml green bottle bought at Systembolaget Storheden, shared with djoeye. Huge bubbly, chalk white head to a clear, late straw coloured body. Fair lacing down the glass. Mild aroma of grass and pale malts. Fresh fruity taste with grainy malts beneath. Restrained bitter endnotes. Smooth in the mouth. Just alright to drink (hotel room, Luleå 25.05.2014).

djoeye (1572) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 28, 2014
In Sweden green 33cl bottle, look as the "3.5%" but has 4.8%abv and barcode for Sweden; Light off-white near white head, dense, tall, deutschhhhhh. Clear light straw golden beer, sparkling. Aroma; fruity hops, floral fruitiness, fresh brewery scents, nice aroma. Taste; bread, mild fine hops, vegetables, fruity taste with nice bready touches. Palate; slightly rubbery, body&carbonation normal. Finish; malts, breads, juicy, good. If it was made at 4.7, it could be sold in supermarkets in Norway and Finland.

Lukaduke (2243) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Pours a light golden color with a finger of fizzy white foam and lots of rising bubbles. Nose is doughy malts, corn and a hint of grass. Palate is astrigent with sweet corn and a strange slickness. Bit of grassy bitterness cleans it up but some strange sweetness lingers. Meh

joeneugs (3324) - Livermore, California, USA - JAN 7, 2014
Bottle from Babushka Russian deli in Walnut Creek. It pours a crystal clear golden yellow color with a small white head. The aroma is rather simple with some bread and apple juice. Maybe a hint of spicy hops. The flavor is a little better. No skunk here, with a lot of bread. Not much hop flavor and kind of a bland maltiness as well, but nothing bad. Decent body and mouthfeel. A well made brew, but it lacks style and needs a boost in flavor.

seymour (1456) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - JAN 6, 2014
Poured from sloped brown pint bottle into a Willybecher glass. Clear golden colour with thin white head which immediately dissipated, no lasting foam nor lacing. Faint grainy aromas, almost no sign of hops nor yeast. Weak flavours too. Mushy mouthfeel, average carbonation, boring. More like a bland Euro-lager than a classic German Pilsener. Perhaps it’s better fresh, and nearer to the source, but it certainly isn’t worth exporting in my opinion.

The Etruscan (541) - Tuscany, ITALY - DEC 30, 2013
White weak head. Bright golden colour: Aroma is malty, grainy with slightly fruity (hazelnuts, almonds) notes. Flavor is moderately malty with bready and biscuits tones, ending in an hoppy finish. Light bodied.

Erzengel (2708) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 13, 2013
Schön süffig, schon im Antrunk. Im Hauptteil allerdings wird es noch muffiger, und dazu leicht herb. Der Nachgeschmack schmeckt, wie der Kleiderschrank meiner Oma riecht - total trocken-muffig mit leichter Herbe. "Keller" passt auch ganz gut - nicht so mein Fall!!

nuplastikk (4565) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 7, 2013
500ml bottle. Pale yellow-tan color. Thin, oily head. The aroma is kind of old and approaches putrid buttery. The body is soft, but the flavor just isn’t there. I’m sure this isn’t the freshest example. Lemony cardboard finish. Not good.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Bottle:   Translucent straw, light carbonation, small frothy white head, spotty lacing.   Grassy nose, yeasty, dull or stale, a bit bready and musty.   Similar on the tongue, decent malt base, but finishes quick.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Dull grassy finish.   Not as bright or crisp as others.   Clean, but very pedestrian.   Perhaps a bit heavier and more grassy than others.   Needs to be sharper/crisper.
