Sample at the Veldensteiner tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 4/8/11. Pours clear yellow with a huge white marshmallow head. Aroma of pilsner malt, lager yeast and crisp noble hops. Sweet malt flavor with lager yeast and crisp hops before a semi-sweet finish. ogivlado (7839) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 25, 2010

Yellow coloured, small airy white head, slight acidic vegetable nose. Sweet malty, slight hoppy and grassy with notes of corn. Short bitterish finish. Boring.
500 ml bottle. BBE 29.08.2012.FROTHINGSLOSH (7796) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Pours a clear golden colour with lazy bubbles and a white head. Aroma of grass, vegetables and light honey. Flavour of grassy hops, hay, honey, vegetables and some light metallic notes. Light bodied, dry mouthfeel and a strong, grassy, bitter finish. Overall a stuffy Pils with some disturbing vegetable notes.
I do not know what it is about these German beers but so many of them have this off flavor that reminds me of artificial grape. This one had a good deal of that. +++ Sampled from a 16.9 oz brown bottle this beer poured a very pale yellow color with a huge soapy white head that lingered and left incredible lacing. The aroma was faintly tart and tangy with notes of lemon, sourdough bread and a touch of artificial grape. The flavor was tangy lemon, artificial grape, sugar and bread. The finish was long and tangy with notes of lemon and grape lingering. Light body. Unimpressive. Ernest (7697) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 24, 2012
Head is initially large, frothy, white, mostly lasting.
Body is medium yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (grain), lightly hoppy (herbs), with light notes of metal, soap, DMS.
Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly husky.
Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, slightly metallic.
Starts out on the right foot with a sizable head, but alas, you can’t judge a book by its cover. Grainy, metallic, soapy notes detract from the hop nose, so it ends up smelling pretty industrial. Not much better in the mouth...bland with a husky and metallic aftertaste. Poor.

Bavarian beer night, just me and some bottles on 19th Aug 2014. 500ml flip-top: BBD 4th Mar 2015. Poured into an old SchlossBrau stemmed tulip glass three times. Good clear golden body, clean and bright with a solid and lasting white crown. Semi-sweet nose with a dry taste, this is a good, regular Pilsner with a pleasant feel to it. Nothing out of the ordinary, just a well made, easy to drink, refreshing beer in a style available all over the world. VastActiv (7134) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 22, 2013
