DSG (12533) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - AUG 16, 2013
Bottle. Clear golden with a white head. Grainy aroma with a bit of DMS, some honey notes and a hint of cardboard. Sweetish flavor, grainy and a bit honey-ish. Finishes drier with mild bitterness, slightly spicy. Light-bodied. Somewhat drinkable when served cold, but not a good Pilsener (or maybe its just the clear bottle).

tomer (3256) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - JUL 30, 2013
Bottle, small quickly dissapearing creamy head, clear deep golden colour, aroma of herbs and rubber with a touch of honey in the back, malty candy honey flavour with a touch of fruity sourness and a medium strong herbal bitternes. Well made but not too exciting

geophagus (664) - Lubin, POLAND - JUN 23, 2013
Pale golden, clear, color, small, white, medium fast falling head. Light body, watery taxture, soft carbonation. Aroma: Pale malts, soft to medium strong, notes of fruity hops, soft alcohol. Taste: Watery, pale malts, soft bitterness, short finish with soft bitterness. Boring pale lager without big faults.

GSAP (719) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 7, 2013
Enige echte positieve is het zoetige, frisse, licht hoppige aroma wanneer net getapt. Smaak is wat vlakker en zoeter dan normale pils, slaat redelijk snel dood. Tap @ Blvd, Venlo.

darioklc (729) - Karlovac, CROATIA - MAR 8, 2013
Friend gave me this one from Amsterdam. Medium yellow color with small head. It taste like regular pilsener but with impressive teste with little sweetness. Good mouthfeel. Medium carbonation.

luttonm (5269) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Funky .33l clear bottle in Belgrade. Darker, richer orange body with slightly dead sweet honey grain aroma. Body has hints of depth and round sweetness but is quite dead in the end, some skunky cardboard. Not a terrible beer though, stronger flavor and not offensive.

ElDesmadre (3625) - Mikołw, POLAND - FEB 22, 2013
Bottle. Skunked aroma of grassy, slightly lemony hops and sweet, pale malt. The latter dominates. Crisp and light taste, moderate carbonation, moderately flavourful, with a nice balance between the residual sugars and the moderately strong bitterness. Really nice beer.

Douberd (5177) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JAN 13, 2013
Bottle at a mexican restaurant, happy to see something else than Corona and Salitos Tequila. Poured into its original glass. Nice golden yellow colour with two fingers of white thick head on top of it. Lots of activity in the glass. Looks promising. Aroma of hops, nothing to write back home too though. Taste is much beter, nice bitterness even from the begining with lots of hops. Thin to medium on the body, average carbonation. After it was brought to my table, I checked for the brewer here, and when I saw Bavaria, in combination with the clear glass bottle, I was afraid it would be another boring pils, but I was pleasantly surprised. Quite good.
