JorgeLee (2064) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2017
Bottle, Waitrose. Reasonably full light golden colour, moderate carbonation. Promising herbal hoppy aroma, appetising. Flavour doesnt quite deliver, a bit sweet on the malts, possibly a bit estery as well, and lacks bitterness and hop definition. I like a bone dry, bitter German pils and although not terrible this was not that.

500ml green bottle, filtered, from Wsitrose. Very soft and watery. Not really a beer I fancy buying again.

zacgillbanks (5078) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2016
Bottle from Waitrose, Hexham. Pale, hazy straw coloured with a disappearing white head. It has a malty, grassy and toffee flavour followed by a smooth, slight herbal and earthy finish. Not bad.

Bottled ; Why the fuck is this in a green bottle ? Its a Pils u idiots -its delicate and green bottles mess with the nuances , the texture and thus make the beers already suble character skunky ; Fuck u Waitrose ! The nose is skunky , but also bready , floral , woody ; on my amazing palate ....its is a decent rendition of a Germanic Pils , could be more bitter for greater accuracy ... notes of bread, hay, leafy hops, tangy woody pencil shaving bitterness ; DRyish accent . Dranks fine considering the retarded green bottle. !

500ml bottle BB Jan 2016. Yellow, clear, lightly sparkling, decent foamy white head, full lacing. Aroma is very light, touch of honey. Body is medium, soft carbonation, pretty smooth. Taste is soft cracker malts, a little papery, enduring musty bitterness.

Green 500ml bottle: BBD 31 Jul 15. Part of a blind supermarket Pilsner tasting at home on 18 Jan 15. Just me playing, the wife pouring! This won out of the three beers on the day. Looked good, golden, clear, clean and bright: usual fading white crown on top. Slight hop odour but no real aroma to talk of. Pleasant, uncomplicated bend of light malts and floral hops. Decent without really setting the world alight. A bog standard German Pilsner in all aspects, which means its fine.

ManVsBeer (10022) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2014
Bottle from Waitrose, Stevenage. Clear yellow-gold with no head. Not too impressed with this, the pilsner style is very understated with not a lot of flavour. Somewhat floral and grassy, it has a small chemical-like taste that makes this a poor beer.

RESULT. Got IDd buying this from the Lutterworth store having been legal for over 2 decades. I must be doing something right. Bottle drank watching the snorefest that is England Vs Norway with half a disinterested eyeball. Pours brilliant gold with a slender white head. Fine honeyed beeswax and flowering shrub aroma. Same flavour; bright and crisp with alluring fresh bread, coniferous and sappy hop. Corking bittersweet lager of a kind the Germans do best. Wish Id basketed a couple.

Bottle from Waitrose in East Cowes shared with McTapps. My first german piwo since the beginning of our holidays. And this one does not disappoint. Hay with gras, some spruce and herbs in the aroma. Malty moments combined with a decent bitter end. Well balanced carbo and high drinkability. Not bad.
