BeerGestapo (754) - Mt.Joy, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2008
(German) Pours a nice pale golden color with a dissipating white head. Aroma of grass with a hint of banana. Taste is clean with a malty flavor, there is some bitterness to the finish. Not bad, but much of the same when it comes to pilseners.

[email protected], Helsinki. Golden color, low white head. A fairly straight-forward pilsener that doesn’t do anything wrong but isn’t great either.

fiulijn (19831) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 15, 2008
Blond color. Poor head. It’s a lean and clean Pilsner, quite dry and bitter, balanced, but naturally missing any excitement. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not bad, maybe with pizza or a sandwich…

GoLdFiNgEr (111) - La Pocatière, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 12, 2008
Bière à 4,9% allemande. Cannette 500 ml. De couleure dorée, mais très claire. Légère mousse en surface, qui disparaît rapidement. Bonne gazéification. Excellente amertûme à la fin. Bonne bière de soleil l’été avec du goût.

EnSiFeRuM (501) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 23, 2008
Canette de 500 ml. La bière se présente avec une robe dorée-soleil surmontée d’une mousse blanche fugace. Au nez on découvre des arômes de céréales, de jus de pomme et de houblon frais. En bouche le corps est mince. La bière nous révèles des saveurs de grain, de pomme et de houblon.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 21, 2008
Can, LCBO, Beer #2 Jeff’s pils fest, Champions League ’08 final viewing one man party. Medium yellow, small quickly diminishing bubbly white head, thin, only one or two streaming bubbles. Mild grassy aroma that features a surprisingly fruity characteristic, along with some hay notes. Taste - sharper hops than the can of Wernesgruner that I had previous to this, but they do seem to work as well - the sort of malty body (for the pils style) and the hops do not work. And I know of no other way to describe it, but the finish in the beer tastes like when you bite your bite accidentally - that mix of blood and saliva. Gross eh? Anyway, this is not to say I didn’t enjoy it - the sharper hops make this rather refreshing and again, I am finding my second German pils of the day fuller in body than a Czech pils - so overall, ok, but I would have to say I would not buy this one again (I would buy the Wernesgruner again).

posikyle (165) - Alabama, USA - MAY 20, 2008
Pours a pale gold color, with hardly any head. Aroma is of malty grass, tastes mostly like the grass part, with a little bit of a bitter aftertaste. There are a lot better pilsners out there.

zappafan99 (463) - ASCENSION ISLAND - MAY 19, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2008 Pale Yellow..quickly diminishing head. Mild aroma of hay hops, malt, tiny banana esters. Descent palate. Brewed with soft water I think. No real complaints, no real praise..I think that would please a german.
