Moravius (1468) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAR 27, 2016
Vom Faß im Brew 3.14, Seoul. - Blaßgelb, leicht trüb. - In der Nase feiner Aromahopfen: leichte Zitrone, etwas Pampelmuse. - Antrunk weich und mild malzsüß mit aromatischer Zitronenschale. Im weiteren Verlauf kippt die aromatische Hopfenherbe etwas ab: Zahnkrem und medizinisch-krautige Noten kommen hinzu. Gut rezent, eher dünner Körper. Noch bitterer aber eigenartig chloriger (?) Abgang. - Angenehm frisch und keß gehopft aber nicht frei von aromatischen Mängeln. Noch ausbaufähig.

Herbal hop aroma, some grainy sweet malt aroma. Light, drinkable, grainy, sweet, malty.

Light yellow and hazy. This one is heavy in the malt and cereal flavors but not much else in it.

FatPhil (17165) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 22, 2014
(Tap at Craftworks tap house, Itaewon)

Clear or slightly hazy yellow, with a ring head. No aroma. In the
taste, hints of cottage cheese, which complement a lively grainy mouth
feel. Finish of grassy bitterness.

Easy to drink.

Unusually, Phil did not share this.

4+ 3 7- 4 13 = 3.1

Lubiere (14196) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 20, 2014
A hazed blonde pilsner with a thin lacing white head. In aroma, lightly fruity crisp biscuit malt with light light mineral notes, German hops, OK. In mouth, a nice crisp biscuit malt with grassy German hops, mineral notes, well done. On tap at brewery.

GIJOE (1256) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Pours a clear yellow with a foamy white head. Nose is faint grain, but not much else. Taste well-balanced. Medium body, lively carbonation, slightly astringent finish. Decent brew.

Fatehunter (2624) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - FEB 23, 2014
Pours a finger of head on a cloudy light straw colored body.
The aroma is light grain and a little banana.
The taste has a mild lemon bitterness with a touch of fruit (banana mostly) sweetness..
The texture is soft with moderate carbonation.
It really lacks the crisp and sharpness that usually defines a pilsner. That being said this beer is enjoyable to drink.

Starts of standing tall and cloudy in the glass, with a moderate foamy-more-than-creamy head. Nose hints at a proper pilsner, but not in a particularly robust manner. I’d expect more from a fresh beer such as this. Tasting reveals soft biscuit, yeast and generic malt flavors found in the nose, but there isn’t much depth. There’s a certain citrus hop element as well, but the medium bitterness just isn’t quite of the right ilk. In some ways this reminds me more of an American style wheat ale (minus the lactic kick of the wheat) than anything else. A lager, perhaps, but no true pilsner here.

On tap at Craftworks but the kegs got mislabelled so I thought it was the weizen! Surprisingly the look is cloudy llike a weizen which is WAY off for a pilsner which should be clear. The aroma wasn’t so noticeable... an average pilsner.
