UPDATED: FEB 11, 2010 [9/7/09] Botte from pivnizub (thanks!)l at my hostel in Brussels. Clear golden color with a slowly-diminishing, bubbly, medium white head. Aroma of nice grassy hops and some bready notes. Bitter flavor of noble hops, light graininess, bread, a bit of hay-ish notes and some sweet malt. Medium-bodied. A decent Pils, woud probably be a lot better on tap. imdownthepub (14556) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2007
Bottled, flip top, 500ml, courtesy of Der Doppelbock (Sebastian). Pale gold with white head. This is a Pils with a little character, quite lemony and hoppy with also a sweetish cereal note. Soft with a vague hint of vanilla, toffee. Nice crisp finish. Reasonable. bierkoning (13355) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - AUG 11, 2004
Swing top bottle. Soft hoppy aroma with mint. Firm hopbitter flavor and afteratste, that hardly leaves room for other flavors. Well made pilsener of the Northern German type. Medium bodied. thewolf (12598) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 2, 2007
Bottle. [thanks to Grovlam]. Pours a very clear and quite pale yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is hay-like maltiness and the flavour does not expand particularly on this experience. Quite hin with a general malty sweetness, but on the plus-side, there was a surprising touch of flowery hops in the taste at the far end of the aftertaste - something I did not catch in the aroma. kevnic2008 (12000) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - JUN 23, 2012
Clear golden, no head. Bready nose with old hay underneath. Dryish with clean, chewy malt and growing late spicy hop bitterness.

Bottle 500ml @ My parentspivnizub (10619) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - APR 1, 2005
[From trade with McTapps] Pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, grain, hay and grass. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a long grassy and bitter finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2006 From the tap: Quite pale with a firm, long lasting white head; stupendous aromatic clear hoppy nose - like walking in a hop-garden in late summer; light to medium body; the initial short sweet maltiness swings to a big explosion of hoppiness before a big dry, hoppy, long and longer lasting finish. Lacks a bit a fuller body, otherwise, all You Bitburgers and Warsteiners: this is an almost perfect Pils in the north-german style !
Re-rated 8/7/06: Draught, served in a stein: Superb aroma: fresh sweet hops with a lot of resin; strong bitter flavour, but a very smootrh mouthfeel as well. An extraordinary german Pilsener ! KimJohansen (10492) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2008

Thanks Papsoe. Golden with a huge, nice and creamy head. the aroma has notes of hops, straw and malt. The flavour has a light malty sweetness, light straw and a good, slightly citrussy bitterness.
