Hmm. We really overvalue these Euro pilseners, dont we? Theres nothing much to this but light grass and citrus taste, and its not particularly well done at that. Cool glass, I guess.

DarkElf (3061) - La Jolla, California, USA - APR 30, 2006
(500 ml bottle: $2.99 at Hollingshead Deli in Orange, CA) Theres no telling how old this bottle is (what does "L00016" mean anyway?), but I suspect some things sit on the shelf at Hollingshead for a long, long time, and the cardboard in this beer is telling me this bottle did some sitting. Ill try to overlook the mild cardboard flavor with this beer and focus instead on the crisp, bitter, lemony, spicy hops that quickly sends the cardboard apackin moments after each sip. Unfortunately, I just dont think Im liking how the hops taste in this beer. Mild breadiness in the finish is also a bit disappointing from what should be a clean pilsener. Body is light but not watery, with solid carbonation. Pale golden in color with a very slight haze. The white head rises to about an inch on the pour before fading to a wide ring. A few small patches of lace remain on the glass. Despite a few flaws, this beer still could have been decent had I liked the hop flavor, so Im not sure if Id enjoy this more if it were a fresher sample.

Kevster (344) - Bradenton, Florida, USA - MAR 26, 2006
Bottle: Pours a sparkling clear golden color with a medium size white head that leaves nice lacing. Aroma is malty with hints of lemon and honey. Flavor is sweet leaving a hoppy finish. This was the 1st brew I tried when I went to Europe several years back. It was much better there out of the wooden barrells in Salzburg, Austria. However, this is one of my favorite Pils I keep coming back to. Very smooth drinking!

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - MAR 16, 2006
Pours very pale gold with a large white head. Thick, bready aroma, with a big dose of sweet, earthy hops. A bit vegetal. Flavor begins with a honeyish sweetness over fresh bread. The hop taste comes in slowly and asserts itself as a grassy bitterness. Dull hop finish. Extremely drinkable.

sunevdj (4060) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - MAR 5, 2006
(33cl bottle) Pours a very pale, clear yellow with a white diminishing head. Nice lacing. Nice saaz-smell in the beginning more malty smells as it sits in the glass for a while. Dry and somewhat sour. Quite light bodied. Crispy, somewhat grassy finish. Not my favourite style... Could be worse, I suppose.

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2006
(02.18.06) On tap at Firkins, Libertyville, IL. Clear straw-colored Pils having a giant white head with good lacing. Sweet malt aroma. No discernable carbonation. Light bodied lager that starts with moderate malt sweetness and honey flavor. Finishes dry with light malt fade and faint hop bitterness. A decent drinkable light drinkable Pils, particularly good for the summer.

screigh (700) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 28, 2006
Poured a nasty looking clear/yellow color. Kind of like watery apple juice. A nice white head, somewhat soapy looking. The head calmed down but remained and some slight stickyness to the side of the glass. The first thing I noticed was the aroma. Strong hop aroma which I beleive are Saaz. Taste was a typical bland pils. I got the slightest of hop bittering in the finish.

On tap in a pub in Vienna. Nice pilsner. Nothing unexpected. Golden color, white head. Good beer.
