Westmeister (2129) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 28, 2012
Bottle. Clear golden colour with a thin white head. Fresh fruity aroma with honey, grain and touch of floral hops . Nice refreshing, nonremarkable brew.

troopie (2341) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - SEP 20, 2012

CanIHave4Beers (4187) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - SEP 16, 2012
Pours a very pale yellow color with a great big fluffy white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass.

The aroma is dominated by floral and herbal hops, with a little bit of sweet maltiness, almost has that weird breakfast cereal quality, but not quite.

The flavor is very enjoyable, plenty of nice bright herbal hoppiness, lightly sweet and doughy up front but is largely dry, good clean maltiness. Pretty much exactly what I wanted it to be.

kevnic2008 (12000) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - SEP 16, 2012
Clear strawy golden yellow, medium-sized head. Malty and hoppy, well-balanced. Resiny grassy hops with hints of hay.

3.4
wxman (1820) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - SEP 11, 2012
Pours a clear pale gold with a full thick white head like eggwhites. Aroma is pale malt and newly mown grass. Taste is crisp and refreshing with the sweet pale malts dominant along with a lemony grassiness from the hops. Slight pils hop bitterness also noted. Pretty damned good example of the style which leans more Munchener/Pilsener than the typical northern German pils. Very good.

3.8
JoeMcPhee (9427) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 5, 2012
Pale straw coloured pour. Rocky white head. The nose is quite floral and spicy with a bright blast of noble German hops over a very clean, crackery pilsner malt base. Great balance with a dry hoppy finish and a peppery sort of bite. Lovely quaffable stuff.

3.2
cmonster (1000) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 28, 2012
Bottle served in a flare pilsner. Pours clear pale gold with a large white head. Good retention and excellent retention. Bright nose of light hops, sweet corn, and a slight earthiness. Light bitter, light sweet flavor. Light body, thin-oily texture, average carbonation, and a well hopped, crisp, bitter finish. Refreshing and delicious.

BigBeer45 (1532) - Michigan, USA - AUG 26, 2012
Bottle, this beer had a clear yellow gold ‘straw’ pour and made a two finger white head, this beer left nice spots and fingers of lacing on the sides of the glass, this beer had faint aromas of light malt and bread with grassy hops, there were flavors light malt and bread with some bitterness, the mouth feel was light on the palate, and had nice carbonation, a good pilsner drink.

Van de tap.Lichtblond,goede kraag. Moutig aroma. De smaak is zacht, weinig bitter. Veel body voor een pils. Wel OK maar er mocht wat meer bitter inztten.

3.4
5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Bottle:   Clear yellow, vibrant, little carbonation, moderate frothy white head, nice lacing.   Grassy nose, a little straw/hay, minor sweetness.   Similar tongue, fairly crisp, but a little mealy, more than I care for.   Clean finish, lingering dried straw/hay, light sweetness.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Okay example, but has a touch of mealiness that I dont care for in my Pilsners.
