BlackHaddock (7329) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2014
11th Dec 2014, 0.4 litre on tap at it’s source, the Groninger Braukeller, Hamburg. Poured a misty amber golden colour with a white head that gave off some good lacing. Aroma came across as malty and grainy and semi-sweet in nature. The taste followed the same lines with a light sweet lead with a mini caramel feel. bartlebier (3982) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - DEC 4, 2014
33cl bottle bb07/15, HH Bierland, one of few not heftily ransomed locals. Confidently copper, sweetish roast, honey and wort in the nose turn into a rich, roasty, nutty body of caramels, roasted nuts, marzipan, taking harsh unripe chestnut and helmgrass bitterness into unstable territory, lingering as if weirdly aromahopped. Overall rather unbalanced, but with character, like some of the best of life’s companions. What an accident of a pilsner, especially a Northern one, - yet what a singular Vienna! Nothing on the label warns that this is not an actual pils, hence hard to rate true to style. Caveat emptor/imbibor. Kita (2147) - Koper, SLOVENIA - NOV 24, 2014
On tap at Gröninger Braukeller, Hamburg. Cloudy amber color with small creamy white head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of malt, wort, honey and hay. Taste starts moderate sweet malty, follows rich herbal with light bitter finish. Medium body, creamy texture and soft carbonation in palate. Sweet and tasty brew...

From a 330ml bottle in Hamburg. This is not a pilsner despite the labelling - it is more like a Vienna lager with toasty sweet caramel malts and light citrus hops on the nose and tongue. Mild dry finish. Medium bodied. Dark amber appearance with a mostly lasting foamy off-white head. OK.

Thanks to WillemsUrenkel for that one! Bottle looks simple but okay. Beer in the glass zippy, small head. Malty aroma. Starts quite malty, spicy, wheaty, light moldy-sourish. Notes of some fruits. Finish could be more balanced. Okay. Inbreak (5941) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - AUG 16, 2014

Nice very creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly sweet, light malts, weeds, hay, grass, cereal, yeast, hints of unripe banana. Taste is slightly sweet grainy, light malts, hay, cereal, grass, weeds, yeast, hops, hints of caramel. Little bitterness, slightly grainy mouthfeel. Nice.
Seltsam anmutendes "Pils", das definitv ein Wiener ist. Dabei wird es aber derart übermalzt, dass es echt weh tut. Nee, brauchen wir nicht nochmal, finde ich. McTapps (6889) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - MAR 23, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in a clear dark orange-amber colour with airy head and medium body. Aroma of hops and malt. Taste of malt, vanilla, torf, caramel andbitter hops. Bitter and light unpleasantfinish. No Pils at all.
