andrew_drinks (234) - Luxembourg, LUXEMBOURG - JAN 3, 2015
Bottle. Pale gold, half an inch of foamy head. Doughy malt aroma, not much hop aroma despite the label! Medium high carb. Rich sweet bread malt, some chalky notes, sulphur, soft bitterness.

MichaelAwesome (6497) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - NOV 18, 2014
Ein klassisch simples Pilsner, das durchaus was im Angebot hat. Frisch und mildhopfig mit nur wenig Bitterkeit, dafuer etwas Getreide, Reis und eine kernige Brotigkeit. Vollkommen in Ordnung, wenn auch nicht besonders.

McTapps (6685) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - NOV 18, 2014
Bottle brought back home from Austria. The beer has got a clear light golden colour with low head and medium to crisp body. Aroma of hops and grass. Taste of mild hops, mild citrus fruits, grass and hay. Medium bitterness with a relatively high carbonation. Refreshing and easy to drink, yet nothing special.

Aroma: wow, no skunk out of the bottle despite green bottling! Amazing. Not much to smell here until its poured into the glass where the unmistakable and pleasing aroma of noble hops becomes apparent. There is also a bit of grass. Flavor: again pretty mild at first, but then there is a little hop bitterness in the finish. Very clean. Reminded me a little of Warsteiner, but a little more refined, if not quite as flavorful or popcorn-y. Nice pils. Took a risk getting a six-pack of these without sampling beforehand, but Im glad I did. Will work very well for the summer especially.

Saeglopur (1929) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - APR 25, 2014
Bottle. Clear, pale golden body, with a big, frothy, white head. Aroma of grains, hay, grass, honey. Taste is a bit watery, with grains, bread, herbs, honey. Mouthfeel is light, slick, with a low carbonation and it finishes medium bitter, with grains and herbs. Average Pilsener, nothing special.

MarkoNm (2557) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - MAR 18, 2014
Pours out a typical golden color, clear, and topps the glass with an average white foamy head that goes away rather soon. The aroma is again nothing special. There are some malts and some (sweet) grains present. The tatse naturally follows the nose. Sweet start, followed by balanced body coming together with mild (only just) bitterness. Nice, drinkable, ordinary.

Lightrider (344) - Bristol, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Bottle into an ale glass. Aroma is a lite hoppy grass. Pour is a honey color with a white head. Taste is a warm malt bitter. Finish is a crisp bitter.

cazort (560) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Very malty yet light bodied and crisp. I found this to be extremely peculiar; this is the first Austrian Pilsner that Ive tried and it was completely unlike German or Czech Pilsners in aroma. The aroma had a strong maltiness, suggesting of sourness, and strongly reminiscent of an Oktoberfest, but slightly more grassy. Yet the body was light and the mouthfeel crisp. The flavor was less bitter than I was expecting but still moderately bitter. Enjoyable and Id drink again--unique in character and I can see craving this particular style of beer; most beers that are this malty in aroma are on the heavier side.
