ganache (5905) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 28, 2009
Bottle. Citric grassy nose, soft water predictions with lemon cream and delish pale malts. Slightly hazy yet still transparent golden with a leggy short head. Taste is dry and surprisingly bitter, with light herbs and spice. Hay, light grain. Light-medium body with a slightly chalky after. Has a lot in common with ... not Bayern, but those soft, bitter North German Pilsners - has some Veltins, some Flens, some Köstritzer, and yes, a little Jever. Good show.

9/26/08 On draught at Collins Pub, Seatle, Wa. Aroma is slightly caramel sweetness with almost no hop background. Appearance is clear yellow with a medium maintained white head. Flavor is sweet with lots of caramel sweetness up front, very low bittering, and slight floral sourness. Mouthfeel is very low bodied, slightly creamy, with a medium carb feel. Overall, this is good for people that like sweet, thin (on complexity) pilsners, but needs a bit more meat to be great. SODAK14 (378) - Rapid City, South Dakota, USA - SEP 21, 2008
I didn’t really care for this Bayern product. It gave off a metallic taste...almost similar to a coors product. I tried this one with pretzels and even those didn’t help. robforbes (2244) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - AUG 26, 2008
pours a cloudy golden yellow with a thin head, sediment, some lacing.Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 16, 2008
smell is faint, lemon, grain, corn.
taste is crisp, slight funk, sweet grass, lemon, some hops in the back, ends on the oily side.
12 ounce bottle from By The Bottle in Vancouver, WA--Poured a cloudy hazed yellow/off-gold body with a thin white head. Grainy, grassy, bready nose with a thin mildly carbonic, approachable body. Easy to drink, but not so memorable.

Very light yellow, with a grainy, slight mineral aroma. Slight herbal flavor, clean and sharp bitterness. ABUSEDGOAT (2760) - California, USA - AUG 1, 2008
Golden yellow colored. Aroma is grassy, some bread, lightly floral. Medium to light bodied, clean and drinkable. 19Ei8hty (1166) - Washington, USA - JUL 7, 2008
Cloudy, pale yellow body. Very little head. Lots of banana on top of a light, sweet grainy malt body. A tad sour and strange spice. Shag (3001) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAY 17, 2008
Did Cougar and I have the same beer as the others at the tasting? Haha. Anyway a yellow appearance with a moderate white head. The aroma is rather malty with some lemons and whipped cream. The flavor is nice on this one with a good malt backbone and a slight bitterness. A refreshing pilsner. ChainGangGuy (4894) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - MAY 14, 2008
Appearance: Pours a crystalline, yellow body with a wispy, white head.
Smell: Flowery pils malt aroma with a hint of honeyed grain.
Taste: Sour, grainy pils malt taste with a honeyish sweetness. Some floral hints. Very mild bitterness. Empty, watery finish.
Mouthfeel: Thin-bodied. Mild carbonation.
Drinkability: Some pilseners can be very good indeed, this, however, is lacking at best.
