American Beer Distro ($4): Pours a pale gold with a head that is as good as a German pilsener typically has. Aroma of grassy German hops. Taste is somewhat bitter, but only as much as the style gets and even less so. There is a veritable malt backbone, as thin as it might be. Very German, refreshing and nice. Oh how I love pilseners. asheft (3125) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 4, 2010
Sweet hay aroma with some nice, very fresh base malt and pleasant noble hops. Clear straw appearance with a thin, white cover on top. Sweet base malt that is a touch soapy and sort of weak, but still gentle and with some herbal noble hops. Light body, medium carbonation, gentle bitter ending. bhensonb (15974) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 14, 2010
Swingtop from Half Time. Pours orange tinged gold with a 3 finger foamy near-white head. Aroma is very lightly bready with a good dose of grassy hop. Flavor is mildly bready, and quite clean. The grassy hop cuts the malt well. Going down great at the end of a hot day. crossovert (14135) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 10, 2011
500ml brown flip-top bottle.
It pours a clear, light gold with a foamy white head that dissipates fairly quickly, but it does leave some nice lacing.
The smell is pretty subdued, it has a very earthy scent, not much clarity in the hops or malt.
The flavor continues the earthy theme, this bottle is probably old unfortuneately.

Fliptop bottle from Beers of Europe poured into a pint glass. Golden lager with little fizz and a shaving cream head if not poured carefully. Very malty aroma, a little overpowering. Malty, slightly bitter taste, better than expected. A hint of nuts and has a certain sweetness. Quite fresh and nice.

Pours yellow-gold with a 3 finger, fluffy bright white head that has great retention and leaves nice lacing. Aroma is full of cereeal grain, floral and spicy hops, a bit of bready yeast and sweet hay. Flavor is more cereal grain, light fruitiness, floral and light spicy hops, a little too much malty sweetness and light planty hops. Palate is light bodied with a lightly creamy entry, moderate strength carbonation and off dry, slightly chalky finish. Decent Pils overall, a little on the sweet and fruity side though. corby112 (2813) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2012
Pours a hazy golden yellow color with a two finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Large streaks and chunks of soapy lacing left behind.
Slightly earthy aroma with spicy hops, grass and straw countered by bready yeast, light fruit and pale malt. Some sticky pine needle followed by some apple, pear and pilsner malt.
Medium bodied with a crisp, spicy hop bite that lingers over the sweeter notes and pale malts into a dry finish. A decent amount of dry, earthy bitterness that dominates the flavor. Hints of grass and straw countered by some light fruit, bread, biscuit and pilsner malt. There’s a subtle metallic presence that lingers after the finish hurting the drinkability a bit. A bit hopper than expected but pretty standard.

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. allmyvinyl (11189) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 7, 2015
500ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours clear pale gold, short-lived white head. Aromas of grass and grains, pale malt. taste is initially a little astringent, giving way to a rounded maltiness. Zlotta (4151) - Hagen, GERMANY - MAR 20, 2017
0.5 l bottle from local ’toom’, best before November 2017. Clear, golden yellow with a relatively large, foamy, dense, stable, white head. Sweetish, slightly fruity-grassy aroma of fresh grass and citrus. Sweetish, slightly fruity-grassy taste of fresh grass and some citrus, followed by a short, just moderately bitter, slightly dry and moderately grassy finish. Thin to medium body, quite smooth and moderately effervescent mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Quite tasty, very mellow, refreshing. Nice!
