See through yellow, white head with lacing. Quite crispy, some carbonation. Starchy aroma.

Rask0lnikov (1394) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 22, 2017
Bottle. Pours golden yellow colour. Moderate white head. Aroma of corn syrup, grainy notes, grassy notes in the aroma. Caramel, grain, grassy notes in the taste. Bit grainy aftertaste. Light bodied, quite well drinkable pilsner. However seems rather macro. Grainy notes disturbing.

Clear golden appearance, crisp flavor and nice hop bitterness to the finish. Always deliciously refreshing, this has been a ’go to’ beer for me in the last couple of years.

labeerinthum (1018) - Milano, ITALY - DEC 24, 2016
Bottle courtesy of Giulia B. Il gusto al naso è floreale e speziato. L’intensità olfattiva è ricca e la persistenza olfattiva è pregevole. Il cappello è di schiuma abbondante e dalla lunga persistenza. La grandezza delle bollicine è media. La carbonazione è abbondante. La consistenza del liquido è limpida. Le bollicine sono medio-fini. Qui la carbonazione è abbondante, persistente ed insistita. Il colore è giallo dorato brillante. Il corpo è snello. Il dolce è medio e l’amaro è moderato. L’intensità gustativa è normale e la persistenza gustativa è sufficiente. Il gusto è piacevole. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono di facile beva. Il retrogusto è di media intensità. Sul palato arrivano sentori di cereali.

Scopey (15431) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2016
Keg at Beerhouse on Long. It pours crystal-clear gold with a medium white head. The aroma is predominantly bready, lemonade, straw, hay and cracker. The taste is crisp, clean, bitter - sweet, grassy, straw, hay, fragrant, lemonade, white bread, cracker and a touch of metal with a dry finish. Light - medium body and moderate carbonation. Decent enough lager bier.

Beerclubsa (147) - Strand, SOUTH AFRICA - SEP 4, 2016
Pours a crystal clear gold with a rocky white head with good retention. Aromas of grainy sweet malt and some earthy/herby hops. Flavor is grainy-sweet cracker-like malts upfront with a solid earthy hop bitterness to finish. Medium light body, high carbonation. Still my favorite local pilsner.

Turtles (2887) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 4, 2016
440ml bottle from Systembolaget, Borlänge. Clear pale golden, large white head, requires several pours in the glass, good lacing. Nothing too much going on in the smell or taste. Grainy and bready, some grass, very mild bitterness.

2.6
AntonyWilson (439) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - FEB 1, 2016
440ml Bottle Appearance: Pours a light, golden colour. Sparkling with a persistent white head. Good lacing. Aroma: Slightly metallic, bready, malty, fruity esters. Taste: Slightly sweet, average bitterness with malty, bready notes. Mouthfeel: Clean and crisp, good carbonation and a medium body. Overall: Easy drinking, would prefer some more bitterness and possibly some cara malts.
