oh6gdx (20313) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 3, 2010
Bottled (from bierzwerg.de). Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is sweet malts, some slight saltwater, mild grassy hops as well as some slight herbal notes. Flavour is grassy, earthy, quite bready, but sweet malts as well as some mild floral notes in the finish.

Koelschtrinker (10645) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 1, 2011
Laff herber Antrunk. Die Herbe wird zwar mit der Zeit frischer, da aber keine anderen Aromen nachrücken wird das Bier schnell langweilig, da die Herbe bis zum Ende hin alleine steht. Minimalst malzig im Abgang, was immerhin noch ein wenig Interesse wecken kann. Es bleibt dennoch ein zu einfaches Pils, das so überhaupt nicht zu überzeugen weiß.

Maria (10146) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAR 31, 2012
it’s warm golden with a white, creamy head. The aroma has notes of malt, straw and a touch of cellar. The flavor has a light sweetness and notes of malt, straw, dusty grain and a little cellar, and the finish has a light bitterness.

pivnizub (8853) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUN 20, 2010
Bottle: Golden, almost no carbonation visible, small persistent lacy white head; pale malty nose with very faint strawy and hoppy aromas; light to moderate sweet-bitter flavour, relatively light bodied, soft MF; short, almost watery, hoppy finish. Regarding, that Josef Groll "invented" the famous Pilsner Urquell, this is a very weak "descendant"......

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 13/20
MoritzF (8493) - Bochum, GERMANY - JAN 11, 2010
(bottle, 4.9% abv) Clear, pale golden colour with a thick medium-sized foamy white head. Slightly sweet and grainy pale malty aroma with subtle notes of honey, citrus and mild herbal hops in the background. Sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Slightly grainy malty taste with subtle fruity notes and soft herbal accents; moderately dry, sweet-bitter finish with delicate herbal hops. Easy-going and pretty mild and rounded Pilsener. 09.I.10

Quack-Duck (7911) - Down South, GERMANY - JAN 24, 2010
bottle from Bierzwerg. Clear pale yellow colour, large white head. Hoppy nose. Solid and pleasant malty base with nice aromatic herbal hops on top. Lingering hoppy finish. But, as this is Josef Groll’s Pils, should it not be a Bohemian Pilsener ;-)
