3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle. Classic pilsner aroma. Fruity: White grape juice, apple, apricot, and peach scents. Cream and vanilla. A little bit of smoke, char, and tobacco, surprisingly. Caramel roll. Tangy: grapefruit. Appetizing and impressively complex smell. Pours a clear, dull gold / light brass with a moderate amount of bubbles that rise at a moderate to fast pace. Light to moderate amount of head. Dry and creamy flavor. Bland but balanced and satisfying taste. Crabapple and mineral water elements. Plastic and clay in the finish. Easy to drink. Light to medium body. Smooth and somewhat frothy in the palate. Not quite as crisp and lively as ideal for a lager; a bit flat and watery (but just a bit). I know this is a mediocre review, but I actually quite enjoyed this beer, certainly more than I expected. I don’t know where I can fairly boost the rating except to give it a solid 15 in the overall category.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Golden pour with head that dies quickly. Ingredient lists only barley malt as the sole grain, but there is some sweetness to this reminiscent of corn. Almost like honey. Grainy nose as well. Meh. Not great but not horrible. I’m not big on the style, so try this. You may like it better than I. Paid 79 cents for 500ml can so it’s cheap enough.

4.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
About as good as a German Pilsener can get! I enjoy the tall boy can and the freshness. The head will diminish a bit when poured into a glass, but it is not flat... Enjoyable and well crafted!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
0,33 Steinie bottle bought somewhere in the Hannover area. Clear golden in the glass with a nearly two finger off white foamy head. What could you expect more from a Pilsener? Sweet malty with grain in the nose. Taste is more grainy, spicy, some malt with sweetness in the background. Increasing bitterness, metallic, dry, getting rough, less taste to the end.

718. Wolters Pilsener - Pivo kupljeno u Plodinama, napravljeno po čuvenom njemačkom zakonu o čistoći piva bla bla bla... Naravno, mirisa nema, a okus nekako vuče na kiselu stranu. Bezveze...

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2015 BJCP Category: 5D German Pils
AROMA: Lightly honey with sweet graham cracker and clean grainy malt. Some sherry-like notes. 9/12
APPEARANCE: Golden hue; clear; effervescent. Moderate white foam, trace lacing. 2/3
FLAVOR: Sweet and malty for the style due to the age of the can. Plenty of pilsner malt with slight graham cracker taste. Faint floral or spicy hops impart light dry bitterness. Honey/lemon notes lurk in the background. /20
MOUTHFEEL: Light body; consistently crisp. Texture is a little watery, though it is smooth with a clean aftertaste. 3/5
OVERALL IMPRESSION: This is probably a great brew when fresh, though it’s still drinkable with some age. 6/10
TOTAL SCORE: 32/50

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can, 0.5l. Clear golden pour, soapy, short lasting white head. Nose is mostly malty, with yeast and some hops in the background.
Thin to medium body, regular to high carbonation with watery texture. Bittersweet. Aroma of malts, yeast, corn, grains, a bit of hops. Regular finish.
Overall, nothing to write home about here. Avarage pilsener. When served ice cold it’s refreshing and quite drinkable.

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2016 500ml can BB 7/11/16
Strong grainy cereal aroma with cardboard note.
Poured light gold with OK head.
Mild bitterness. Slightly grainy taste but otherwise it’s all about wet cardboard with this one and not much else. This reminded me of a bog standard oxidized Euro lager than a Pilsener.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can. Thin sweetish malt aroma, with grain and a small floral note. Medium dark straw color. Flavors of grass, hay, and very thin sort of maltiness. Very thin body, watery. Not a heck of a lot going on here.
