Kristall-König (2475) - 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

Lukaduke (2685) - 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

Rune (9300) - 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).

after4ever (6686) - Brier, Washington, USA - FEB 17, 2013
500. Pours a hazy pale gold with a loose and sudsy whitish head. Powdered sugar and old wet dish rag on the nose. Watery medium body with somewhat sluggish carb. Shortbread cookie and wet grass on the mid palate. Long nutrasweet finish.

nuplastikk (5068) - 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.

bierkoning (11110) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAY 19, 2006
Grassy, hoppy, peppery aroma. Grassy flavor with apple. Thinnish. Grainy aftertaste. Disappointing. Thanks MoritzF for the bottle!

pivo (2631) - 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.

pivnizub (9287) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAY 8, 2006
Bottle: Clear, very pale golden coloured with a small, but stable foamy head. Grassy hops in the nose, some sweet malt and a tinge of iron; almost tart bitter flavour, light bodied; light to medium grassy bitterness and a big metallic tinge in the aftertaste. Unpleasant, the hop extracts rule...! A typical bland "slim" Pilsener in the northern-german style.

Nuffield (3835) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - FEB 9, 2004
It crazily says "ale" on the bottle, I presume to fit Texas licensing laws, but oh well.... I had a really open mind about this, and with the tradition of German purity laws, even some presumption of quality. I was disappointed. It pours a weak yellow with obvious large carbonation like a mineral water and a reasonably formed, white head. The aroma carries a bit of hops to it but also some grassy, skunky notes--this was a brand-new shipment to Texas, so it is not old. The flavor has a certain sweetness with a residual sticky afterfeel, but early on I reacted most strongly to a metallic twinge lacing across the front flavors. Undistinguished beer, even in its style. At least it didn't have any adjunct flavors--how could it, afterall, when the Purity Laws ensure that all the beer coming from Germany is high quality (dry sarcasm intended).

Marsberger (1) - Marsberg, GERMANY - JUL 7, 2012 does not count
One of the best German beers as stated by official testings, with a slight bitter aroma, a very fresh appearance and a quite voluminous taste,
