Aromat s?odowy, do tego DMS. W smaku równie? s?ód. Niska do umiarkowanej goryczka. Nasycenie wysokie.

Metalchopz (3203) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - APR 7, 2016
4-pack of cans from a Quebec convenient store. Pours a light golden colour with a frothy white cap, good retention and creamy lace. Not completely filtered with tiny transparent particles floating around. Metallic notes in the nose. Grainy malt taste with decent pilsner-like hops. Some sweetness with the cereal, but not syrupy. The taste seems better in a glass, but the smell can stay in the can. A refreshing, inexpensive pils.

TedE (1115) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 26, 2016
330ml bottle into shaker. Grainy nose. Pale amber beer with solid sticky white head. Light carbonation. Grains dominate the taste and finish but some bitter hops shine through at the end. Robust and refreshing.

rayaron (1551) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - MAR 7, 2016
Bottle 0.5l. Clear yellowish with white head. Very light aroma with some graininess and flowers. Bitter flavor with notes of lemon and some graininess, sweetish, slightly dry. Light-bodied.

Beerheart65 (1497) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 7, 2016
Clear golden, thin white short head. Semisweet and grainy, minimal, thinly butter, bit grass. Medium body, dry, standard carbonation, medium long finish, toasted. Basic and minimal but nothing really wrong here, easy to drink, good palate.

Juggernaut84 (242) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 18, 2016
Wenn schon pils dann so! Frisch Hopfenbetont aber nicht flach oder schnöde. Feinherb und spritzig würzig und ein super Schaum. Gut!

hauxe (521) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - FEB 14, 2016
Pours pale gold from the bottle with a decent if somewhat foamy head. Calls itself the King of Beers which, in my book, is usually not an auspicious sign. Aroma is lightly sweet and malty, with some old sock, and little discernable hops presence. The hops are more discernable in the taste, which is pleasant enough, and set against a lightly sweet malty background and mild carbonation. The palate is a bit watery, which distracts from the already rather mild flavors. Decent. Boring. Not a king.

puboflyons (3238) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 4, 2016
From the 500 ml. can with an expiration date of 05-13-2016. It pours pale yellow with a lot of bubbly carbonation leading up to a lingering white foamy head. The aroma is bready, clean, and grassy. Light, easy drinking body. Overall just a clean, crisp quaffable Pilsener with toasty sweetness and mildly dry finish. I see nothing wrong with it. It depicts the style well.

sharkydodson (1302) - St. Petersburg, RUSSIA - FEB 3, 2016
the aroma is malty and herbal with shades of grain, hops and spicy grasses... the taste is clear and refreshening, malty and hoppy with notes of grain and spicy herbs... the aftertaste is bitter and dry...

Beerdrinker79 (2120) - Idaho, USA - JAN 18, 2016
Bottle from pilsner tasting, thanks Poisoneddwarf- Pours golden with small head. Aroma is grassy and lightly sweet. The taste is grassy, light hops, sweet, tastes old.
