obguthr (6178) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUL 23, 2009
Hay aroma dotted with raisins. Shimmering light golden, with a thick snow white head. Grassy hay, lemon, and light barley flavor. Cloying hints of blackberry ruin an otherwise decent pilsner. Harsh mouthfeel and overly carbonated. Lemon grass finish. With the right pour, this wasn’t half bad.

Ungstrup (36454) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 10, 2009
Bottled. A light yellow beer with a huge yellowish head. The aroma has notes of sweet malt and hay. The flavor is sweet with notes of hay and citrus as well as lighter notes of malt, bread, and cardboard, leading to a dry bitter finish where the note of hay lingers. The body is light.

3fourths (9299) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 21, 2009
500ml bottle. Clear pour. Medium soft nose of pils malt - doughy and cracker-like - very clean smelling with a faint garlic-like hop crispness. Medium body, drops off somewhat in the finish - texture is somewhat fizzy up front, more oily across the back. Simple, clean, refreshing, slightly sweet pils malt and faint hop bitterness - crisp, quiet, simple. It works.

SHIG (4952) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JAN 22, 2009
Bottle: Poured a clear and golden color with a white head. Aroma is light but full of grain and overall freshness. This pours over into a fresh corn, grass, and malt mix. This is one of the best pils I have had EVER!

kenb (1102) - Oregon, USA - SEP 13, 2008
12 oz bottle via Liquid Sol. Pours an almost clear golden with an average white head. Nose is spicy. Taste starts with a nice malty breadiness, almost a little toasty, then some nice floral/earthy/spicy hops kick in and linger long intot he aftertaste. This has a very nice balance, a good mouthfeel, perfect carbaontion and medium body. A superb Pils.

Concluding my jaunt in German beers is the Aktienbrauerei Jubilaums Pils. Other Aktienbrauerei beer’s have been modest in quality, but I still had high hopes for the Pilsener, which I anticipated would be so classically central European that no German brewer would release anything less than unacceptable. My brain knows this is untrue, but my gut has an overiding optimism. A desultory, mottled, soapy head floats on the surface of the bright yellow beer. A horde of bubbles make their migration to the top, some sticking steadfast to the side of the glass, but most do not. A sweet and semi-corny aroma drifts up from the beer, gracing my nostrils with a touch of brown sugar, a squeeze of lime and a bright and clean aroma that is so characteristic of a well crafted pils. Not a whiff of skunkiness anywhere. The flavor resounds mutely and dry, with no sugar sympathy anywhere. At first I catch a glimpse of honey, but it quickly fades into a quenching, medium-light, dry and grainy brew. The taste is absolutely crystal clear, and delicious, but neither complex nor deep. So my question is, is this the real deal? Is this a genuine pilsener? Is this like Kaiseki Japanese food where you need proper acclimation to appreciate the subtle flavors?

0.5L bottle. Pours a clear, medium straw color; bright white head with good retention and fine-bubbled lacing. Very solid, dry, and crisp aroma; toast, crackers, and some yellow fruits; nicely dry and refreshing with some mineral bitterness. Medium mouthfeel: toasty malts, breadiness, and bone-dry overall; crisp mouthfeel, with a solid presence of balancing minerals and herbal hops; as Jordan stated, not exceptionally high on bitterness or on resiny hoppiness, but very dry and refreshing and a good example. I could drink a lot of this beer; very sessionable. Medium finish: burnt toast, crackers, and a touch of cardboard and minerals.
