Beautiful fluffy head on pour, and nice strong malty aroma. This is going to be good, right? Taste is weak and watery, unexpected as it smelled so good. Nothing is left on the palate either, so I makrked it down for that. I was posed for something great, and got just plain mediocre....

Bamsen78 (5063) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 14, 2016
Bottle. Pours clear light golden with airy white head. Clear aroma of yeast, with notes of malt and touches of hops. Sweetish, estery and malty flavour with bitter notes of hops. Estery and malty aftertaste. Medium to high carbonation and good mouthfeel. Reasonable for the style and quite refreshing but not top notch.

Flasche (Würzburger Hofbräu Pilsener, 33 cl) vom Bahnhofskiosk Würzburg. - Goldgelb, blank. - In der Nase etwas strohig-muffige Malzsüße und billig anmutende krautige Hopfenherbe. - Im Antrunk deutlich muffiges Malz und kräftige aber geschmacksarme krautige Hopfenherbe. schlank Gut rezent, schlank, leerer Körper. Trockener Abgang mit üblen muffigen Aromen (Sägemehl?) und nicht zu schwacher aber billiger krautiger Bittere. Längerer, leicht chemischer Nachtrunk. - Mieses Pilsener, durch ranzige Hopfenextrakt-Fehlaromen ruiniert.

JBPortland (1490) - Hampton Roads, Virginia, USA - FEB 8, 2016
On tap from 5L mini keg pours crystal clear gold with 2 finger head. Nose is crisp corn, soft grain, touch of grassyness. Taste is crisp, snappy, nice balanced medium bitterness, corn, grain, potato, wheat bread, crust. Finishes with nice lingering balanced bitterness, all the earthy grain, touches of light grassyness and faintest hints of citrus you want from a pilsner while being overall balanced, refreshing, and superbly drinkable.

sinfull (1453) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Good , classic pilsner. Golden color . Surprisingly weak head as for German beer. Malt and grass in aroma. Taste follows the aroma with refreshing, hoppy bitterness.
