KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - MAR 18, 2005
UPDATED: APR 17, 2005 Very refreshing and simple brew. Nice hoppy flavor that doesn’t try to make too much of a spectacle. Good, good stuff. Hints of hops and wheat, with a slight rounding of malt in the finish.

asheft (2777) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 1, 2009
[bottle] Aroma=Crisp citrusy hops together with some almost caramelly base malt. Clear dark yellow with a lasting, thin, white cover. Flavour is clean, but boring, typical German pils. Heavy on the bittering hops with not much to hold it up. Enough malt flavour to cover the ethanol, but not much else. Light body, medium carbonation, slightly vegetal bitter finish.

Lukaduke (2769) - Gray, 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

djoeye (2755) - 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.

pivo (2646) - GERMANY - OCT 17, 2004
No nose to speak, though nothing bad about it. Yellow colo and a spongy head. Sharp pointed hop end that tinges to the center of the tongue. Otherwise nothing in the taste profile to speak of. Thin and dry, watery but somehow balanced.

drpimento (2633) - 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

Kristall-König (2560) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - SEP 25, 2011
Im Glas typisch pilsfarben. In die Nase steigt ein kräftiges Hopfenaroma mit fruchtigem Einschlag. Geschmacklich zunächst etwas flach kann sich das Bier jedoch noch steigern und hinterlässt im Abgangjedoch eine ausgeprägte Bitterkeit. Noch ok. Test vom 15.9.2006, Gebinde: Glasflasche

YogiBeera (2554) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 12, 2004
Ok - I have to admit that I*m not very nice to German Beers every time I come back from Belgium - I might have a spoiled taste :-) but still... Light yellow, little head, fizzy carbonation, sweet corn nose, herb, parfume and hay taste.

legion242 (2343) - Richardson, Texas, USA - JUL 13, 2004
Regular yellow; slightly rocky head; clean nose. Much more hop presence then usual for a pils if you ask me, and you didn’t. Stayed refreshing through whole glass. Not bad.

Sorry for the german rating, but this is a lousy rating from my "newbie" time (2007-2009), and it’s not worth of being translated. I just added it for the statistics, and to complete my backlog!
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein recht blasses Bier mit wenig Schaum. Der Geruch ist feinwürzig hopfig. Der Antrunk fällt gut hopfig aus, nicht zu herb, aber trotzdem gut kräftig. Gutes, süffiges und würziges Pils!
