joeneugs (2932) - 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 (1323) - 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 (490) - 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 (1939) - 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!!
Test vom 16.4.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,4,11,2,12,5 - 6,35

nuplastikk (4135) - 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 (6031) - 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.

WillemsUrenkel (314) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - AUG 2, 2013
0,5 l bottle, in my opinion too much gold on the label. Pours pale golden, small short living head. More than average carbonation. Grainy and honey for the nose. Starts malty. Followed by cereals and low hops. Ends with long lasting light hop bitterness. Typical Pilsener out of central germany.

superspak (2215) - Michigan, USA - JUN 19, 2013
500 ml bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours fairly crystal clear pale straw color with a small white head with decent retention, that reduces to a thin lace that lingers. Minimal lacing clings on the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation retaining the thin head. Aromas of apple, pear, honey, grape, cracker, bread, floral, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of malt/fruity ester notes with a fair amount of hop presence; and solid strength. Taste of pear, apple, cracker, grape, honey, bread, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of light fruits, cracker, bread, honey, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Nice and pleasant balance of malt/fruity ester flavors with a fair amount of hops; with solid flavor robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth and lightly crisp mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a solid Pilsener. Good balance of malt/hop/fruity ester flavors; and extremely smooth to drink. A pleasantly enjoyable offering.

neur0 (820) - GERMANY - MAY 22, 2013
(Flasche) Es hat eine etwas sehr hellgelbe Farbe, ist klar filtriert mit einer weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist süß, fruchtig-blumig, fast kaugummiartig. Der Geschmack ist anfangs nur breit, bitter, ölig und adstringierend, dann kommt eine Diacetylnote durch und etwas Süße.
