Blairgus (2551) - 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 (2773) - 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 (3446) - 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.

Cerveja bem forte e bem amarga. Mas muito boa. Aroma forte. Recomendo. Bem diferente das brasileiras.

rondphoto (1782) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - AUG 12, 2012
Clear golden with a frothy clean white head and streaks of lace. This is one of those wonderful thrist quenchers. Starts with caramel malt and a hard to ID spice that, together, grows as it moves through the palate. There is light bittering at the finish to ease things back into line. Super session beer (and at an eye-popping 4.6%!). Recommended.

Pours a clear golden orange color with a creamy head that lingers a bit. Grainy, bread like aroma along with lots of sweet malt. Taste is light sweetness, lots of grain and malt. Very tasty, smooth, and a little creamy. This beer seems to be a little under rated to me. This is a perfect example of a classic pilsener. Maybe its not hoppy enough for people?

mansquito (3255) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUN 15, 2012
Total Wine, Fairfax 500ml ($2.50): Pours a light orange color with a white head. Aroma is grass, malt, and grain. Taste is definitely on the sweet side of Bohemian PIlseners. There is no vegetal skunkiness, nor is there much in the way of hoppy bitterness. Beer is sessionable and has no offensive qualities. Somewhat malty.

TheJestersBeer (2032) - SWEDEN - JUN 7, 2012
330ml bottle. Pale gold, white head. Malty, bisquity aromas, citrus, hops, hints of butter. Dry, medium body and bitterness, balanced CO2. Malty, quite astringent taste, citrus peel, hops, straw, faintly buttery, traces of yeast. (2012-03-14)

Patrickctenchi (3401) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Pours a honey-gold with a small white cap. Aroma is malt. bread. Taste is malt, bread...almost a caramel like sweeetness, too. A little flower bitter in the back. A litttle to sticky/clingy as it nears the end. Not terrible, just not a keeper, either.
