asheft (2778) - 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.

Koelschtrinker (14128) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 4, 2011
Danke an Kristall-König für das Bier! Im Antrunk ist bei diesem Bier kaum etwas zu schmecken, erst im Mittel erwachen die Aromen. Frisch und knackig herb erscheint das Bier hier, aber erst im Nachgeschmack erwachen auch andere Aromen. So geht die knackige Herbe hier in eine Bitterkeit über, die mir nach und nach etwas zu stark wird, im Großen und Ganzen aber noch in Ordnung ist. Das Bier ist trinkbar, hat aber nichts wirklich besonders an sich. Test vom 26.11.2006, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 7,8,8,10,9,9 - 8,65

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!

MoritzF (8953) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - MAR 27, 2006
(330ml bottle) Clear, very pale yellow colour with a short foamy white head. Sweet bready and malty aroma with grassy hops and metal. Sweetbitter flavour, medium to light bodied, good carbonated, crispy mouthfeel. Medium sweet malty taste with grassy hops; light to medium bitterness at the end with grassy and herbal hops and a tinge of metal in the aftertaste. Still drinkable but very average, even for a Pils from the Sauerland.

thegreenrooster (3649) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 21, 2012
Pour is a straw yellow with a large white head. Aroma is dry pils malt with a little burning in there. Flavor is again a light pale pils malt with a little burning flavor in the end. This must have gone bad somewhere along the journey.

330ml bottle. Clear, yellow-ish, pale golden colour with small, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Grainy, strawy aroma, some malty spiciness. Taste is minimally sweet pale malty, grassy and mildly bitter hoppy overtones, slightly metallic finish.

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.

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.
