A bit sweet for a pilsner - I taste some caramel, which was unexpected. There’s a bit of English pub ale in here. Seems underhopped for the style. Smooth, drinkable. Extra points for longevity (brewed since 1004).

Pours a dark straw color with a big foamy white head. Aroma is floral, grains, and maybe honey. Taste is malty, bready, and fruity.

TURDFERGUSON (4024) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 26, 2013
Bottle from Carrboro Beverage Co. BB 09.06.16. Golden, medium carbonated, with thin film of fading white head. Nose is sweet and lightly metallic; white (vanilla) cake, nutmeg, cinnamon, horchata-like--very odd. Flavor is sweet and metallic, like sucking on a penny. WTF. This either sucks or this style is another one of those acquired taste scenarios. Another 2-3 small sip drain pour. I need to stop buying ticks before looking them up. Dammit, $4 down the drain.

Floral aroma as others have stated. Pours clear, golden color. Not very much flavor but certainly drinkable.

inbirraveritas (1357) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 18, 2013
Bottled. Pours a clear golden with a medium sized white head on its top. Smell of fruits. Aroma is also fruity with biscuits, dough and gently hints of grassy hops in the background. Lemony and sweetbitter finish escorted by mild hops again.

Beerenberger (1567) - Fischer, Texas, USA - NOV 1, 2012
A sweet floral aroma dominates. A hazy golden pour with a none lasting white head and no lacing. Tastes of sweet malts with a mild hoppy finish. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. To me, the taste was, overall, rather bland. Its a very drinkable beer, but nothing here to write home about.resin,

TheCametron (2112) - CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 29, 2012
Bottle. Golden with a White head. Slighlty thin bodied but the hop presence makes up for it. Citrus and grass. Bitter finish. Refreshing.

Blairgus (3383) - California, USA - OCT 8, 2012
8 oct 2012, bottle. Yellow, clear, steady bubbles. Nose is sweet lager malt with some caramel and faint bitter finish. Thin body and very fizzy. Smell was very sweet but taste is rather even. Lager malt, light caramel, and crisp, bitter finish. Nice enough for a lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JStax (3813) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - SEP 16, 2012
Poured from a refrigerated bottle. Pours a very pale yellow with a crisp white head of foam. The aroma is faint, sweet pilsener malt with just a touched of grainy grassy bitterness detected in the finish. Taste is faintly sweet and grainy with a nice yeasty note towards the end.

Enjoyit (3610) - Vadum, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2012
Golden of color with a white head. An aroma of sweet malt, weak hops, roasted flour and pancakes. A flavor of old hops, weak sweet and a awful grainy finish.
