Nothing special here but nothing wrong either. Has a a straw yellow pour w/ a good white head that leaves a little lacing. The aroma is straight skunk but in a decent way. The taste is actually clean & crisp & not all that bad for a pilsner. Easy drinking & rather nice on this summer evening! chinchill (5025) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 15, 2015
11.2 oz bottle served in wide mouth glass (from notes)
A- Golden yellow; slightly darker than many pilsners. Ample white head with good retention.
S- Strong aroma for style. A lot of pilsner malt with grassy and earthy notes, and some hop presence.
T- An amplified pilsner with somewhat stronger flavor than average. Clean finish.
M- The mouthfeel is light with a good amount of carbonation.
D- The drinkability is good for a pilsner, but I definitely prefer a good Czech pils. Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 29, 2005
Bottle. Golden colour with a big white head. Hoppy spicy aroma and a hoppy spicy bitter dry taste. Medium body and a bitter dry finish. omhper (25160) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 3, 2006
[Bottled at Københavnske Øldage] Clear golden, no head. Surprisingly malt sweetness tops grassy hops, and the mouthfeel is rounded rather than crisp.
Bready malt dominates. The finish is reasonably bitter though. Not the most pilsnerish german pilsner, but a good beer.

Bottle. Pours a nice golden colour with a big good lasting white head. Fresh hoppy and fruity aroma with malt. The flavour is fresh and hoppy with a good fruitiness and maltiness, bit of pine and some sweetness. Fruity hoppy well lasting finish. Good pilsner.

(Bottle 50 cl) Courtesy of yespr. Slightly hazy golden with a dense, white head. Fresh, floral nose. Medium body with lightly sweet and somewhat rustic malt accents. The finish has a solid hop bitterness. 140308 sirPino (883) - Zawiercie/Sosnowiec, POLAND - JUL 29, 2008

Bottle brown, 500 ml
Appearance: Pours a bit hazy with some micro sediment floatingin the body surface, body colour is bright golden, carbonarion visually is gentle, head is initially small, frothy, slowly decreases to minimal, slightly off - white, rather no lacing.
Aroma: Graphite, some gentle accidity, mineral nose, chalkyness, maltyness is hidden somewhere at the background and mainly dominated by herbal hoppyness, a bit hars but not as aromatic as in ’Hacker - Pschorr Pilsener’. A bit milky with some interesting nutty - woody hints, earthy, soily hops.
Flavour: Earthy hoppy nose, soil comes at front, than comes nicely pronounced bitterness on palate with still existant aromatic nose and decent grainy aftertaste, very well balanced between all the ingredients. A traditional, pure Classic German Pilsener being brewer according to the unchanged, old, traditional receipe. Some notes of cardboard and paper, dustyness and soilyness, saltyness dur to hops and carbon dioxide, barley grains. Sharp bitterness strenghting itself coming towards finish. Finish duration is very long, citruses, lemon, grapefruit.
Palate: Body is light, texture is very dry with sharp hoppy bitterness, finish feel is chalky, grainy, dusty, dry.
Süßer und hopfiger Geruch. Aromatisch-süßer Start, dessen Niveau sich durchzieht bis in den Ausklang. Hier dann ein wenig herber. Untypisches und eher süßes Pils. Trotzdem ganz nett, irgendwie.Test vom 11.1.2009, Gebinde: Glasflasche Drake (13741) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 22, 2012
Bottled sample at the Top of the Hops Festival, Charlottesville, Organic version. Aroma of clear pale amber color with a thin frothy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of sweet grainy malts and honey. The taste is herbal notes, grainy malts, honey and some toasted bread. Medium bodied.
