This is a good pilsener. Spicy, pine, and slightly bitter. Finishes crisp, clean, and dry. Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - OCT 14, 2003
Hazy golden colour. Large white head, nice lace. Hoppy and little sweet aroma. Taste starts a little sweet and yeasty. Finish is very long, certainly hop-bitter (pine...) and dry. Schroppfy (2362) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - OCT 10, 2003
UPDATED: APR 19, 2004 Rerate: A truly great beer - among the greatest ever, I think. Past the butteriness that I and other mention, there goes this tiny little lilting sour hay. This has got hop and malt pouring out. Fantastic. Original: I think joey_c nails it here - this is herbal hop heaven (Saaz and...something else...spicy Hallertau?), but also very buttery, with even piney bitterness. Lovely lovely stuff; full body (although I was expecting even more), excellent handling of the alcohol (when most lagers approach 6% they get stinky, IMO) - delicious and big thanks to radiomgb!

Clear gold with a slight yeasty haze. The beer has piney, spicy hop aromas and has more hop than malt flavors. Lots of carbonation gives it a spritzy feeling that is well suited for a hot day. Ends with an assertively bitter finish. One of the better pilsners out there. Jokes (1455) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 10, 2003
Pours a golden yellow with a huge white head. Lacing up and down the glass. The aroma has faint grains and strong hops. Crisp and ultimately refreshing. Starts malty and has a bitter, hoppy finish. No notice of alcohol at all. A great summer beer to be sure.

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2007 July 2007. Bottle from LCBO. Golden yellow body with a small fluffy white head. Aroma is very much floral, perfumey hops with light notes of grass and straw. Fairly bitter flavour with grainy/grassy notes and lots of the same hops from the aroma. Average palate. Whether or not you enjoy this is heavily dependent on your reaction to the hops used. I very much did not care for them. 6/3/4/3/10 - 2.6
<P>August 2003. Straw colour. Strong hoppy bitterness. Sort of an odd undercurrent of bitter flavour I could not quite place. Not bad but not altogether enjoyable. 4/3/4/3/10 - 2.4 presario (4925) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 23, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2003 Double hopped and bottle conditioned. Hop aroma jumps out of the bottle and settles down quickly. Thin straw colour with many tiny yeast particles. Big white bubbles and light lacing. Very strong lemony hop flavour. Is this a pilsener or an IPA. This is all about the hops. A bold beer that might grow on you with repeated consumption but I find it too bitter in a bad way and without any balancing malt. TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 23, 2003
signature pilsener aroma - light hops, slightly grassy, notes of citrus. Quite pleasant. Pours straw yellow, yeast floaties, head is thin. Malts are hard to detect. Excellent hop character results in crisp, clean finish. Pine aftertaste. schepers (32) - Limburg, NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2003
One of the best pilseners I've had! It has a nice bitter aftertaste. Thirst quenching without becoming tasteless. JoeM500 (1909) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - JUL 7, 2003
Grassy and piney aroma from the billowy white cloud of head sitting atop this 33cl sample, thanks to Radek for the bottle! Sugary, rich malts are perfectly matched with dry strawy hops. The hops are big at the finish. Clean taste throughout ( best before 4/04) and perfectly quenching on this 95 degree day!
