tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - SEP 6, 2007
Bottle. Pours light yellow with some yeasty cloudiness and a tight white head. The aroma has some grains, freshly-cut hay, lemon zest, and distant white bread, maybe a stray floral honey note. The flavor is raw grain, hay, lemon zest, and very distant sulfur. The finish is pretty dry, but without much distinct flavor. Aftertaste is a bit papery. All in all, a decent pils.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - AUG 29, 2007
This bottle is labeled Premium Bavarian Beer Pilsner Style. The bottle in the pic just says Pilsner. This brew pours a slightly tawnied pale yellow w/ a medium sized, spattered creamy white froth. Head retention is minimal but receds leaving a full canopy and a sticky white lace. Aromas of aged malts and herbs. Medium nectar w/ mellow residual effers creating an almost creamy texture w/ a tad of cotton fiber. Definately European w/ a musty aged malt character accompanied by a moderate hop citrus rind spice. The finish is bittered nicely leaving mild asprin burn on the palate.

Strykzone (5376) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 28, 2007
Pours a light honey color and might have the least color of any beer I have seen. No head except for a small ring around the glass. Aroma is grassy and is not pronounced. Flavor is slightly tart and almost equally sweet. I kept waiting for any real flavor to show up but then the glass was empty and so were my taste buds. It is, however, light and easy to drink.

yeah, if this is a ’classic german pilsener’, then the German’s should stick to Hefe-weissen, mai-bock, and the like and leave the pilsners alone.

vyvvy (4557) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAR 14, 2007
Pours paler-than-urine yellow with a large fizzy white head with very little retension. The aroma has smooth pale malts, light grass and butter. Light mouthfeel that is fairly slick with lots of sharp carbonation. Starts off with pale malt that quickly gets overtaken by spicy hops, unfortunately there is some skunk in there as well. There is also some granola and grassiness. A fair pils.

thegreenrooster (3455) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 27, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2007 Pour is a pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma is pure skunk. Flavor is light grains and very dry. Kinda a soapy feeling to this one. Nothing really going on here just got it to fill out the mis a six.

Magjayran (1379) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 18, 2006
Golden color with almost no head to speak of. Mostly grassy aroma with hints of skunkiness. Sure enough this beer tastes a little skunky. There’s some bitterness and straw like flavors but really there’s not much going on.
