Quack-Duck (9118) - 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.

rozsoma (785) - Győr, HUNGARY - MAY 28, 2012
3rd Wiener Bierfest, Vienna, Austria. Sampled by Kis Salétrom and Szebeni Ászok. SZÁ: Hát én ennek már nem érzek semmi izét. Hogy ez pils lenne, ki van csukva. Inkább kőnyalogató ez is. KS: Tapír ez a zafír.

kjc51478 (441) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - SEP 28, 2011
33cl Bottle. Appearance is clear yellow color with medium, off-white head. Aroma is straight sugary sweetness with little to no other malt or hop distinction. Taste is also fairly sweet with candy sugar the main motif with some slight grassy hops. Palate is light-bodied, fairly smooth texture, slightly watery, average carbonation, and a sweet finish. Just you average, cheap Pilsner.

heavy (2739) - Split, CROATIA - SEP 3, 2011
25/08 0.33 l bottle from Bier Kultur nine-pack purchased at some Interspar, Villach. It poured pale yellow body with small, short living head. Stinky cornflakes, honey and stale socks in aroma. Flavor was all malt, acidic, somewhat metallic and corny, just like a NA beer, but a low quality one. No traces of hops, except at some point in its finish. Couldn’t finish it! And I thought it’s bad for a pale lager, now I see it’s declared as a pils! Hops please? How could I like it, something went wrong here! Might rerate sometime.

Marko (4854) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 29, 2011
Bottle shared with and courtesy of heavy (thanks!)
Poured a yellow-golden body with a small head. Stale malty nose, notes of jam. The taste, however, improves a lot, an interesting lemongras-like aroma hop dominates, with the full, slightly dull and overbearing maltiness backing it up. Creamy. Ok, heavy really, REALLY didn’t like this one, dunno why. It’s a complex, solid lager that’d really shine with a better malty background, or fresh from the brewery. Not bad, definitely not bad.

Christian (12666) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 18, 2011
Golden with a small white head. Clean malty aroma with biscuit and read crust character, and nice herbal hops. Sweetish malty flavour with a good hop character

Bottled 330ml. -from interspar Hallein. Yellow coloured, small white head that went away fast, dusty grainy nose. Moderate malty and quite bitter hoppy herbal taste with grainy notes. Strong bitterness in the finish. Surprisingly good Zwettler.
