DruncanVeasey (8226) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2012
Bottle from Arden Wines. Deep, streaming gold with a stable white collar. Aroma of grassy hop, dandelion and honey. Crisp, piney pils with grass, sherbet and papery notes. The paperiness becomes a little off-putting. Otherwise good. But not as good as the Goller. Bov (12636) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - NOV 24, 2011
courtesy of fiulijn - clear and pale golden beer; no head retention; decent flowery and herbal hoppiness; slightly oily; moderate malt backbone; slightly dry and bitter; the finish is dusty and grassy with a lingering bitterness ClubGonzo (5670) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 13, 2011
Bottle from Fenaknoken, Oslo. Pale green-ish lager body, small creamy head. Pale malts and dusty hops to the nose, hints of grains. Taste is sweet grainy malts, dusty hops and some severely spoiling metallic hints. Not the best, even for a dreaded genre like "classic German pilsener"...

Half litre Bottle, fairly large head, went quickly. Nice golden colour, not many bubbles, very clear. Slight red cabbage aroma. Tasted hints of nut as with many beers from the region. Slightly too bitter for my tastebuds. Had a lot more gas than I expected. Overall a solid pils but very much a fresh sharp tasting one. Ok but won’t seek out again. tfredvik (1941) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2011
Pours a very pale light yellow body with a rapidly diminishing medium white head, poor lacing. Faint sweet malty aroma, very subtle fruity hints. Light sweet, medium bitter and light sour taste. Medium sourish bitter aftertaste. Medium carbonation, light body, a bit metallic feel. Nah.

Bottle from MaruhnMaria (10212) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUN 18, 2011
Pale blond color. Corn-ish, paper and cereals aroma, corn-ish paper and cereals flavor; strong bitterness in this desert. Too simple.
It’s golden with a creamy, white head. The aroma has notes of flower, malt, straw and light butterscotch. The flavour has a light sweetness and the same notes as the aroma. The finish is dry with light notes of butterscotch. Koelschtrinker (20376) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 18, 2011
Süßlicher Beginn mit deutlichen Getreidenoten, erst wenig, später deutlicher malzig. Dabei immer hell und auf Süffigkeit ausgelegt. Später etwas herber und dezent säuerlich, zum Ende malziger und bitterer. Aromatisches Pils im Stil eines Lagers. 7/10/9/9/10/9

Bottle. Golden clear, nice white head. Smells of roasted malts and some fruitiness. Taste is dry and opens up with malts and caramel. The palate is also pretty dry with an intense bitterness. I really did’nt expect that hop power from a germen pilsener. Nice garza (573) - Oslo (NO), Caracas (VE), VENEZUELA - OCT 1, 2010
Pours golden with average white foam. Malty aroma, some far caramel. Hops and slight malt in the taste, some sublime swettness. Light body, average carbonation, light bitter finish.
