Brain_Parasite (70) - California, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Pours a light gold with a small white head. Aroma is sort of floral with some bready notes. A light body: flavors of honey, bread, fruits, and spices. This is the best Pilsener Ive had, though thats not saying much. Good for summertime cookouts and for those times where you want something a little more mellow.

Shit, this makes Lagunitas Pils seem downright revolutionary. Burnt grain middle, slight diacetyl around the edges, and slack, apathetic carbonation. Way too close to macro light yellow lager for comfort.

A very good drinkable German style pilsner. North Coast Brewing got this one right, would recommend.

Toasty and malty. No bitterness and unexpectedly it was almost savory. This helps to set it apart-different and not too bad.

kevinator (1985) - The Colony, Texas, USA - NOV 22, 2016
Decent for the style but nothing extra for uniqueness. Mild aromas and flavors of grassy malt with a light hops presence. Very traditional color and mouth feel.

tricksta_p (3896) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - OCT 26, 2016
Bottle at home. Aroma is grainy malt and floral notes with a touch of fruity grassy hoppiness. Flavour is light sweet and bitter. Body is light to medium. Fairly enjoyable midly hoppy floral-ish Pilsener.

trapped (2592) - New York, TURKEY - OCT 23, 2016
Bottle. Clear pale yellow with small foamy white head, faint malt aroma, medium carbonation, sweet malt taste, smooth body, abrupt finish with slight aftertaste (honey?). Very taste but nor remarkable.

cattaneopapa (350) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 22, 2016
Bottle bought back in August in San Francisco. Pours a clear starw colour with one finger of lasting head. Lacing clinging to the side of the glass. Aromas of herbs, bread, hay and grass. Taste matches the aroma with some notes of citrus. Smooth and well balanced. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Not bad.

Wolfenkopf (193) - Villa Park, Illinois, USA - OCT 2, 2016
The aroma is a bit citrusy, like a mild IPA. Theres a hint of wheat in there, too. The brew is a pale gold, very typical of a pilsner. The head is white and takes a good while to settle. The taste is primarily that of wheat with a backbeat of light malt. Its a wonderful balance. The palate is a little smacked down by carbonation burn, but it passes fairly fast, revealing a very light oily quality left on the tongue. Honestly, I could drink this all day and would choose it over other pilsners when Im in a pilsner mood.

flying_pig (1466) - SCOTLAND - SEP 28, 2016
355ml bottle from Brewdog Online Shop (2.50):
Coming through with what turned out to be quite a standard pilsner taste, this one was a decidedly average beer that started slightly sweet & was followed up by some pleasant caramel & bread malts but never really done enough to fully grab my attention. There was a nice balance to what was quite an easy beer to drink & the moderate bitter finish rounded things off well, its just not one that I thought was particularly interesting or memorable; a nice beer but definitely not one to hunt for.

stevoj (4299) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 16, 2016
Bottle at Kibroms.Average appearance, grainy aroma, comes off kind of the lager side. Lightly hopped, mild bite at the end, could use a bit more hops. Overall, not too bad, but pales in comparison to its German ancestors.
