Bottle. Clear gold beer, tiny white head. Smooth palate, somewhat dry. Carbonated bite in the finish. Mild creamy malt and then some quite bitter hop. Not a lot of hop fruit. Not too bad, a bit more oomph than most Pilsners.

Oakes (16949) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 27, 2011
Hazy dull tan. Slightly herbal, bready character. Clean, slightly spicy with hints of bread in the finish. Decently made but uneventful.

Bottle, bought @ Beermerchants.com.
Light hazy golden with a slight green hue. Big, frothy, white head on top. Fair duration. Aroma is fairly sweet, some pear, sweet malts, light caramel. Small bubbles, high carbonation. Fairly light mouthfeel but with good dryness and crispness. Flavour has good clean malts, a bit of caramel, light citric and fairly grassy with a bit of apricot thrown in. Very nice pilsner, actually.

leaparsons (10400) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2011
Bottle. Golden with an off-white foam. Aromas are biscuit and caramel malts with lots of lemon. Some green pine woody notes with apricot and yeast. Flavours are sweet grain with sharp, sour and bitter lemon. Some light floral soapy notes. A spritzy, clean lager.

gunnar (8776) - Sandnes, NORWAY - FEB 26, 2011
Bottle from Beermerchants. Pours clear light golden with a big frothy white head, disappears slowly. Aroma of dusty and cellarish malts, whiffs of citrus hops as well. Taste is better than suggested by the aroma, modest sweet malty with a well defined piney and grassy hops bitterness. Clean and dry palate. Lingering bitter aftertaste, flowers and lemons.

DruncanVeasey (8225) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2011
Bottle. Encouraged by the previous raters’ comments, I drank this after a Kernel BIPA. It held up pretty well. Chunky gold with good, streaming fizz and a fine, undiminished white foam. Lean piney aroma with a rub of orange skin, wet grass and dollop of honey. Clean and herbal with good sprucey, grassy hop; lemon and honey hints and a proper bite of bitterness to finish. Some softening biscuit and breadstick there, but the bitterness is lingering- as it should be. Not just a lager like lots of ’pilsners’, but possibly the best British pils I’ve had.

Bottle. Golden appearance with a medium head. Dry with a bitter finish. Surprisingly complex for a pils this was a pleasant surprise, Worth checking out.
