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).

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.

(Draught at Kaisla on 2008-05-09) Pale golden colour. Clear. Small medium head. Dry hoppy and bit sweet nose. Fruity and bitter taste. Boring.

harrisoni (17821) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2008
500ml bottle at Ship & Mitre April Fest 08. Gold with lasting off white head. A little bready, but good in the mouth, some lemon, hop, carbonation tingle on finish. Bit metallic, some lemon and lime. Fine pilsner.

mar (5362) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 26, 2008
pale gold pour with a thin later of white froth. german hop scent that’s slightly funky. thin on the palate but i was really expecting those hops to shine. not so much though, mainly just grass and cardboard. this would be a good beer after mowing lawns all day long.

italianjohn (3035) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2008
A solid pilsener i would definitely try again i wouldn’t say the bitterness is harsh on this like some others are saying maybe the first taste or two but its slight ..... a little sweet and smooth going down .... don’t worry about this one its a good bet cheers

ilovedarkbeer (2728) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - APR 23, 2008
Classic is right. Pours a straw color with some carbonation and almost no head. Nose is salty , grassy, sour, and a tad but skunky. Taste is salty and super bitter. Very tradition but somewhat hard to drink because of the excessive bitterness.
