jonas (6858) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - SEP 7, 2012
Tap. Very attractive pearling golden, rocky white head served in a tall flute, really nice. Flowery and light grassy aroma. Dry sparkly body, medium body, quite chewy though, chalky dry, nice grassy and aromatic hop profile, dry grassy aftertaste. Really enjoyable pilsner.

Oakes (15806) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 24, 2009
Sparkly straw with a big head. Soft and spicy herbal hop note. Definitely feinherb - dry and hoppy. Quite lean in the body with only a little bit of Bavarian malt breadiness. Finishes off-dry and fairly spicy.

Shaney (2423) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - DEC 16, 2012
#257 Goldgelbes Pils mit schöner Blume aus Amberg. Neben dem Hopfen ist ein leicht blumiges Aroma -ähnlich einem Hellen- vernehmbar. Im Antrunk frisch und leicht. Der Geschmack ist mild-malzig-würzig, das im Nachgeschmack angenehm herb wird. Wer hätte das gedacht: Ein gutes Pils aus Bayern! Test vom 3.4.2011, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,11,12,11,12,12 - 11,70

3fourths (9147) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 24, 2012
draft at Winkler in Amberg, November 2011
clear sparkling gold body with a billowy white head, proper appearance for German pils. mineral-rich nose of calcium with mild touches of sulfer, clean yeast profile, lightly grassy and spicy German hops and a clean, succulent and crisp pilsner malt toastiness. well-made though pedestrian and basic, which isn’t a criticism as this one was easily quaffable and enjoyed very much.

Beershine (5224) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUN 19, 2009
Draft @ brewery. Bright clear gold, with thick white head and rising bubbles. Fresh grassy aroma is subtle, earthy, and meadowy. Lots of sweet grain in there. Pretty well-balanced. Soft, gently carbonated and fairly thick. Good dose of hops for a clean floral finish that is balanced by a lot of sweet grains.

kappldav123 (5923) - GERMANY - DEC 22, 2012
Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass zippy, small head. Starts mild, but not washy. Fine spicy notes, dry background. Some fruity hints of lemon. Well balanced finish, quite drinkable. A good one!

oh6gdx (25472) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 28, 2010
Bottled (from mein-biershop.de). Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is grass, mild saltwater, grains and some slight notes of sweet malts. Flavour is quite much the same in a very nice balance. Mild vanillaish notes as well.

Quack-Duck (9164) - Down South, GERMANY - AUG 5, 2007
bottle, bought at the brewery. Clear pale yellow, large and fluffy head. Hoppy nose. Quite hoppy, very lively carbonation, which gives it an unusual mouthfeel. Bitter-sweet character, reminds me of a Czech Pilsener. I think I would haven enjoyed it even more, if the carbonation had not been so lively.

McTapps (6502) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle from Pivnizup - many thanks! The Pils pours out of the bottle in a clear golden colour with low airy head and medium body. Aroma of hops and citrus. Taste of mild fresh hops, straw, citrus and peaches. Light dusty hints. Very refreshing and nice to drink - solid and good Pils.
