joshwilfong (1200) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - MAY 4, 2008
golden clear with white head. flavor of munich malt but the hop finish is somewhat astringent and overpowering. an unusual pilsner that really stands upon the hop finish than the maltiness

(draft @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Clear gold color with a thin white head. Aroma is very light with some sweetness, malts, grass, corn, and metal. Flavor is light and watery with some light malt flavor, a touch of dry hops and hay, and a sweet and slightly metallic finish. Watery and plain.

Clear, pale lemon yellow in colour with a frothy white head. Some lacing. Sweet aroma. Medium bodied (a little on the watery side) with average carbonation. Low to moderate bitterness. No strong flavours, some sweetness, very slightly malty. Refreshing...Not bad. - 500ml bottle.

crowderm (382) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 5, 2008
On tap. Pours a deep golden color with a very nice fluffy white head. The aroma is pretty mild, but there are some nice bitter/floral hop notes in there. The flavor is classic German pils - a very clean, very smooth floral hop presides over a solid malt backbone before fading off into a very dry, very refreshing finish. The mouthfeel is creamy yet light, supporting the flavor very nicely. Great pilsener.

blackbock (121) - Shoalhaven NSW, AUSTRALIA - DEC 25, 2007
Bottle: Having read other reviewers assessments of this beer I wasnt expecting much. However, I found it to be one of, if not the best Pilsners that I have ever tasted. It was a medium straw colour; Zero initial aroma, but an extremely clean, melanoidin flavour. Chalky finish. Hops were present, but not altogether bitter for a German-made Pils. I could drink this stuff all day.
