0,33l bottle. Full aroma, full taste, lightly bitter, not aggressive finish: a very decent Pils! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

McWorta (1294) - LUXEMBOURG - MAR 9, 2015
Crystal clear, deep yellow straw colour with a fine white head and good lacings. Fresh straw aromas with notes of barnyard and subtle citrus peel and flower notes. Softly carbonated, thin bit slick texture, light-medium body. Nice snappy hoppy bitterness with a touch of malty sweetness. Bit dry lasting finish.

Vielen Dank an Geiserich für dieses Bier! Ins Glas ergießt sich ein goldenes Bier mit geringer aber dennoch stabilen Schaumkrone. Geruch hopfig, blumig, floral. Geschmack hopfig bitter, blumig, grasig.

worldbeertaste (1789) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2014
Medium gold with a white, thin, somewhat lasting head, smells of corn, veg and pale malt with soft yeast. Initial sour bitter taste of grass with soft sweet corn and a grainy bitter saturated finish that lasts. Leaves the mouth dry like club soda. Forced carbonation? Medium super dry watery body.

Thanks to quack-duck for that bottle. Looks simple but good. Beer in the glass deep golden, small head. Starts mild, malty-spicy, mild-dry background. Finish with some grasy notes, a bit metallically. Okay.

MoritzF (9151) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - MAY 31, 2013
(bottle, 33cl, thanks to Quack-Duck!) Clear, golden colour with a blond and short foamy head. Mildly citrus-fruity and delicately herbal hoppy aroma with bready malty notes. Moderately bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Bready malt-character now with more herbal hoppy accents; quite dry and hop bitter finish which is a tad too harsh and lackluster. Nevertheless a drinkable Pils. 16.IV.13

pivnizub (9895) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAY 4, 2013
Bottle (kindly donated by Quack-Duck!):Pale golden, clear, small and slowly collapsing white head, mild aromatic-phenolic hoppy spots in the bitter and pale-malty nose; light to moderate bitter-sweet flavour, light bodied and soft; an increasing touch of noble hops is detectable in the bitter and malty finish. A quite nice brew from the Austrian-Hungarian Empire…

Quack-Duck (9079) - Down South, GERMANY - APR 1, 2013
bottle from Merkur Wien-Hütteldorf. Clear pale yellow, creamy white head, lovely aromatic hop aroma. Light-bodied, elegant malty base with a good amount of aomatic hops, presumably Saphir. Floral and slightly citrusy hop accents. Very nice.
