pivnizub (8724) - 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…

MoritzF (8389) - Bochum, 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

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.

kappldav123 (4700) - GERMANY - JUN 2, 2013
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.

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.
