Michcio (756) - Gdansk, POLAND - MAY 22, 2017
Barwa złota, klarowne, piana biała, niezbyt obfita, ale się trzyma. W aromacie słodowe, kukurydziane, ale jeszcze nie kukurydza z puszki. W smaku słodowe, zbożowe, nuty słodu pilzeńskiego. Goryczka średnia, nieco zalega, trawiasto-ziołowa. Wysycenie średniowysokie, ciało nieco poniżej średniej, dobra pijalność. Klasyczny niemiecki pils, daje radę, ale bez szału w sumie.

rodsquad (201) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - MAY 12, 2017
Bottle from Beerhawk. Pours clear gold with plenty bubbles and a white head with good lacing. Light nose but what is there is citrus fresh. Taste has the gentle citrus and pine freshness. Theres a sweet caramel middle and a green earthy finish. A classic crisp sharp sparkle with a light body. It does nothing to turn the world on its head but it does everything it should do brilliantly. Fresh and crisp and beautifully balanced.

Scipio (1002) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - APR 29, 2017
Pours a clear, thin looking yellow with a full white head. The aroma is subtle, containing grain, grass, honey, and straw, with the grain being the main impression. The taste has some bitterness. Floral hops are big in here, but there is also the presence of a heavy grain flavor to counteract it. Undertones are bread, corn, and hay. Minimal floral aftertaste. Light in body, average carbonation, and thinner in texture. It would be difficult to recommend this one.

superspak (5397) - Michigan, USA - APR 13, 2017
500 ml can into lager glass, best before 12/7/2017. Pours fairly crystal clear medium golden yellow color with a 1 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of cracker, white bread, lightly toasted biscuit, light honey, herbal, light pepper, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of cracker, white bread, lightly toasted biscuit, light honey, herbal, light pepper, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/grassy/spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of cracker, white bread, lightly toasted biscuit, light honey, herbal, pepper, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and balance of pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance; and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from lingering bitterness, increasing through the glass. Very clean on lager flavors, with minimal yeast notes present. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, crisp, and fairly bready/grainy/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.8%. Overall this is a very nice German pilsener. All around nice robustness and balance of pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. Very flavorful for the low ABV, and a spot on style example. A very enjoyable offering.
