Sten (742) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - AUG 23, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2010 First rating 6/2/7/3/14: total 3.2 on tuesday, august 23, 2005: A hoppy taste with some bitterness in the finish. When youre planning of drinking this beer directly from the bottle, dont! It tastes a lot better in a glass. But a reasonable pilsner. Just a bit to watery. (Bottle 33cl) Rerate: Fresh aroma, hoppy taste and again some bitterness in the finish. pretty much the same. Pretty good pilsner. (Can 33cl)

Nekronos (4136) - Xalapa, MEXICO - AUG 20, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2006 Good shape, great foam. BUt although, refreshing, it has a taste that bores me after a while. The coulour is light.

Spoonrest (1) - Mnchengladbach, GERMANY - AUG 12, 2005 does not count
A great Pils from the Western edge of Germany. Draught, bottled or even canned this is a consistent brew. A golden yellow brew, initially with a good head, pleasant moderate hoppy aroma and a light to moderate bitter which is maintained throughout. A lively drink with a light to medium body.

Tubbfan (147) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - AUG 9, 2005
Poured yellow from the bottle (not golden). No lasting head or lacing. Small, champagne-like bubbles rising throughout the glass. The aroma is slightly skunky (its imported from Germany, by the way). Also some bread aroma (not sure if its from hops or malt). The flavor is only average. Not overpowering with hops or malt flavors. Watery texture and a very dry finish. Quite drinkable, but nothing special. When I toured Germany in 1982, our bus driver claimed that this is the best beer brewed in Germany. Hmm. Not sure if I agree with him.

Standard pilsener. Not much to say about that. Better than some of the others though..

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 6, 2005
Not too bad. A definite euro lager. Not as hopped as the bohemians, but good. Fruity with some residual sweetness. Nice color, bready nose. Easy drinker.

FernandoBrasil (17) - SJCAMPOS-Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - AUG 3, 2005
Very good beer. Very goldy color, with aroma and taste worth the try. Cream is very rich, a little sour in the end. Very good mouthfeel

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 26, 2005
Pours a light golden with a thin white head that quickly and fully recedes. Aroma of bready malt and grassy hops. Taste is surprising sweet and a bit chewy. Finish is lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Theres some quality in here. It might be mass-produced, but its not swill.

bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 26, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2005 Minimal head which was around barely long enough to say boo. The classic hops/malt nose, with a hint of bananas. Flavour was okay, with a fairly thin body and slightly bitter finish, but of course it is a pilsener, so it is to be expected.
