(Bottle) Poured clear yellow. Minimal head which did last well. Aroma of noble hop. Noble hop flavours with delicate malt. Not overly sweet or bitter. Finish cleansing but not astringent. Very nice. Quack-Duck (9540) - Down South, GERMANY - JUL 20, 2007

Really nice Pilsener
aleigator (945) - GERMANY - FEB 21, 2016
Pours a bright golden color, with a huge, froth head.
Smells of slightly skunky wheat, mingling into herbal, white bread accompanied malts. Hops offer a wet leaf quality, while the malts remain pleasantly on par.
Has a higher, bubbly carbonation, with a nice, soft mouthfeel. Its body is light and refreshing, with a crisp hoppiness providing enough depth during the clean finish.
Tastes of bready malts, a hint of toffee, which opens up the palate to fresh cut grass, straw and garden herbs. The beer’s hop profile also creates a crisp dryness, perfectly balanced by doughy malts, revealing a mellow white bread quality. Finishes truly clean, dry with soft wheat and a coppery note.
Perfect, classic example for a well made Pilsener. Everything synergizes flawlessly, complimenting the herbal hops, while maintaining a great drinkability among a refreshing crispness. SinH4 (6559) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - FEB 23, 2016
Bottle courtesy of MoritzF, many thanks! Clear and deep golden color with creamy and fine-bubbled white head that dissolves into a thin white layer. Aroma is earthy-herbal hops and light biscuity malts. Taste is the same, but with a hint of an underlying sweetness. Carbonation is average, but still, the beer feels quite crisp. Bitter finish with a hint of metal, but it fits. Best German Pils I’ve ever had. Dedollewaitor (16543) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 1, 2016
Bottle @ Hopfen & Malz, Berlin. Pours clear yellow with a creamy white head. Lovely fresh straw, grass and bread. Dry, quenching bitter finish. Very good! BB 06/16. JorgeLee (2277) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2016
Bottle, courtesy of Hermann. Light yellow golden colour, nice big white head. Light crisp malt. Nice, quite dry, good hop character (bottle was claiming Perle and Tettnang) with a distinctly prickly herbal note. Lingering bitter finish. Restrained and yet characterful - moreish. JoeinDahlem (1604) - Berlin, GERMANY - SEP 8, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2017 Clear, golden, sturdy foam. Herbal-lemony nose with honeyish malt. Delicate, light, thin, softly bitter but full of herbal hop flavor. Either well balanced or lacking bite, depending on your mood. I lean toward latter but this beer is full of class.
