Yellow. Classic German Pilsner aroma, with pils malt, light fruits, clove, honey, herbal, spicy and grassy hops. A very pleasant tasting Pils, especially up front and on the mid-palate. Grainy, fruity malty texture. Notes of clove, light fruits, bananas, pears and honey. The hops are subtle, which is why I liked it, grassy and herbal. The onlu complaint is the poor finish. Nontheless, this is an impressive Pilsner. dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - OCT 29, 2004
Fruity, hoppy, grassy aroma. Same goes on in the taste. This has the typical fruity Pinkus taste and it ´s starting to bore me. Nevertheless, this is a fine Pilsner of the sweet, fruity variety. Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 16, 2004
This pils pours with a pale golden body topped by a thick, white, foamy head with a good amount of lacing. The aroma is slightly sweet and fruity with a nice sweet grassy hope note. The flavor is slightly sweet and a touch bitter with a little fruitiness and a nice hayey, grassy hop note. A very nice Pilsener. Light, crisp and smooth with a little dryness.

This poured a hazed yellow color with a fairly thick white head. That went away quickly. Grassy, yeasty aroma... and I don’t pick up the latter with my schnozz too often. A mild citric flavoring with a subtle hint of spices. Slightly bitter finish. Not too impressive. mjg74 (3204) - La Mesa, California, USA - SEP 26, 2004
Pours a hazy yellow/orange color. Aroma is mostly grainy. And a little papery. Flavor is a little bitter. A little bit spicy and citric as well. Not bad but not that great.

Light hazy yellow, with a large head- fluffy and nice looking. Smells of banana and clove, along with some grassiness. Flavor is sweetly yeasty... has some kick- peppery and other spice. Decent, but nothing to brag about. bb (9790) - Alamo, California, USA - AUG 27, 2004
Bottle. Pale golden yellow with a nice white head. Yeasty aroma. Very crisp, very carbonated. A bit of spice, some yeast, some acidity, but thirst quenching - just wish the carbonation was a bit lower. Braudog (6900) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - AUG 25, 2004
Golden yellow with quickly subsiding head. Very yeasty aroma for a pils, and likewise the flavor is heavily gristy and tart, not as crisp as the best German pilsners, but this is still a fine German beer. Padron4KM (810) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - AUG 6, 2004
Pours a hazy yellow with a fluffy white head. Thin lacing.
Aroma is yeast.
Palate is thin.
Not much in the flavor dept. Kind of piney, kind of citrusy, a little sweet.
refreshing. mdi (573) - Nebraska, USA - JUL 24, 2004
16.9oz bottle Hazey, golden color, I was given a wet glass, so there was very little head, slight fruit and some grassy hops in the nose, more tart in the finish than bitter(but some bitterness) Certainly not sweet...its like I added a lemon to it, but I didn’t. Seems to have more in common with an ale, or more specifically a wiezen than a pilsner, although it isn’t a wiezen. Not a beer to look to if you want a pils(which I DID!), but it does have some interest to it.
