seymour (1684) - 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.

Beer pours pale golden with a decently retained egg white head. Aroma is hoppy and a bit grassy. Flavor is pretty full on hops for a pils and there is a brief presence of some malty graininess. Pretty good for the style.

OK ... with such a small set of ratings there is surprising variation. Pils is my favorite of the German lager/near lager styles, even though I guess Pilsen is by now Czech again. Beer is thin, too lightly hopped, I think, and lacked the classic salty taste I have come to associate with the Pilsner hops or the maltiness I have come to expect from a true Pilsner like Urquel.

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - SEP 11, 2005
Clear light golden with a white soap bubble head. Cardboard malt and grass aroma. Thin bodied and grainy but also too sweet. The maly flavor tastes cheap somehow. Some bitterness in the watery finish. Clean with some hop flavor though.

scarletfire65 (1129) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 14, 2015
Bottle at home for breakfast. My last full day as a New Yorker. Hazy golden pour. Aroma is crisp grassy Noble hops and a bit of lemon. Surprisingly sweet undertones, plenty of pils malt, crackers, Saaz hops, and oily lemon. Finish lacks a bit of characteristic crispness, overly sweet, but all in all pretty good.

ccex (1084) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 14, 2012
600 ml bottle found at my local grocery store for $2.49 pours a clear, pale golden color with white head. Aroma is mostly pils malt, with some gread, grass, and floral hops. Taste is silghtly sweet with a clean dry finish. Body is light to medium with slight carbonation. Very drinkable and refreshing, if not very memorable.

neur0 (993) - 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.

WillemsUrenkel (976) - 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.

The Etruscan (583) - 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.
