3fourths (9349) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Draft at the brewery in Ebermannstadt.
Classic appearance; sparkling gold with a fine white head.
Clean toasted pilsner malt aroma.
Mild to medium lemon / spice spalt hop profile.
Clean fermentation; no noticeable brewing flaws.
Soft dandelion / wildflower floral touches.
Good malt expression, rich aroma and flavor.
Enjoyable mineral / calcium crispness.
Semi-sweet; lush carbonation; good hefty malt acid.
Soft body, medium-heavy bitterness in finish.
All around solid pils, clean and bright and expressive.
Slight lemon astringency and husky malt keep it from being scored higher.

Maria (10211) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2011
The color is like clear apple-juice, and the ehad is small. The aroma has notes of malt, light butterscotch and bread. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of bread, malt, fruit, and the finish is dry – a nice one!

Kristall-König (2820) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - SEP 7, 2011
Mild-hopfiger Geruch, getreidig angehaucht. Milder süßlicher werdender Antrunk. Mittig einsetzende Bitterspur, die mit schöner Würzigkeit in den Abgang geht. Gelungenes Pils.Test vom 10.2.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche

rauchbier (3902) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2007
Tap, at the brewpub July 2005. Straw gold, good lasting white head and low condition. Low grainy malt with some fruitiness in the aroma, Slightly chalky in the mouth with a touch of sweet malt and more fruitiness before a developing hop bitterness that lingers into the finish with a modicum of grainy sweetness.

MoritzF (9974) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JUL 30, 2007
(bottle) Clear, golden colour with a medium-sized foamy white head. Medium-sweet malty and fruity nose with a tinge of herbal hops. Initially malty, slightly grainy and subtle fruity taste with moderate residual malty sweetness; more hops accentuation towards the slightly bitter finish. Clean and pleasant to drink.

ippopotamo36 (2417) - Rome, ITALY - MAY 5, 2015
On tap at King Arthur pub in Ciampino-Italy. Pours clear golden, a bit pale but vivid, frothy white cap with retention. Nose: lemony, a rough maltiness. Mouth mirrors the nose, the beer is ok but a bit too shy in my opinion. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MiP (15920) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 5, 2010
Draught at the brewpub. Mildly buttery flavour. Vinous hint. A little sweet in the finish. Low carbonation

MartinT (9932) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Straw-like cereals and herbal hop bitterness try to make you forget about the hiding DMS, as mineral edges scratch every bubble.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam tops the clear golden.
-The mouthfeel is dryish and softly carbonated.
-Hops and malts aren’t clearly expressed.
-Their beers taste like they’re trying to be a mid-sized, generic brewery.
-There are so many very good Pilseners in Germany... This is not one of them.

On tap at the brewpub.
