anstei (2358) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - FEB 3, 2017
Tap at Mikkeller SF. Pours clear golden. Aroma is strong aroma hops, grassy and flowery, some fruit. Body is medium and dry as a Pilsener should be. Not as dry as the northern German ones though, still some sweetness there. Nice bitterness though. Good.

Listigovers (1204) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 23, 2016
The aroma on this is just massive, lots of mineral and European hops, even some other scents like ginger and lemongrass. The taste is minerally, clean crisp grain, and very dry, nice lager sparkle to this beer and a long aftertaste. Very light and crushable yet so much refreshing flavour, would love to drink this again and again!

Gluggenheim (2) - Long Beach, California, USA - DEC 10, 2016 does not count
Grassy, piney, barnyardy aroma... by which I mean it SMELLS LIKE CANNABIS. I had to do some research to confirm that this is not malted with OG Kush. Smells like pot, tastes like pot - with some smooth grain body. Is this intentional? Is that why this is called California Dream? We deserve to know. Other than that, an unremarkable but competent Pilsner.

3.7
Braudog (6763) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - DEC 3, 2016
Bottle. Sexy pour, crystal-clear golden color with huge pick-marked head. Nice Teutonic aroma and Germanic flavors, I feel like I’m back in Europe. (#6444, 12/2/2016)
