Bottle. Pours a very pale yellow with a thin bubbly head. Has a floral fragrance. Hop tasting on the front but more bitter on the finish. Light on the palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

single bottle from beers looking .. light gold .. medium foam .. standard grass hay .. quite nice, a pleasant brew, but a quick forgettable one .. . . one day i'll buy a pocketwatch and then lose it one night drinking.

12floz, no date, $2 single, pint glass. Skunked beer, but I review them as I get 'em. Straw in color, light and gritty. Beyond the skunkiness, this seems to be a decent brew. So I'll cut the point deduction in half to reflect quality if it was fresher. Beer should have clear dating! I would have passed knowing otherwise, especially considering the style. It does improve despite age as it airs out, and decent qualities are better detected.

07-11-17 // 500ml bottle shared. Clear golden, small head. Bayrisch pilsig, with sweet grainy malty body and just a light bitter finish.

mile (4052) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 28, 2017
Bottle. Light golden, small to average and mostly diminishing head. Light to moderate, malty - lightly grainy and dryish - lightly sweetish aroma, light bread and light - some grassy/herbal hoppyness. Body is light to medium, malty - lightly grainy and dryish - lightly sweetish, faint bread and light grassy/herbal hoppyness. Finish is average, malty - lightly grainy and dryish - lightly sweetish, light - some grassy/herbal hoppyness. Decently hopped but could be drier.

Grassy aroma. 1.5 finger head. Good lacing. Thin malt base to let the slightly bitter hops through. Refreshing and moreish. A pleasant lingering bitterness on the palate. Beer doesn't get much better than this.

Cunningham (8404) - Halden, NORWAY - SEP 28, 2017
Shining golden color with a fine white head. Nice mellow malty aroma. Medium body and smooth carbonation level. Balanced sweetness. Felt like a powerful Czech lager. Mellow malty, mild fruity and mild herbal flavor. Lovely refreshing stuff.
[Bottle at Zwanze -17 in Oslo, Norway]

Taking your pils on time is important. This particular medical beverage pours clear, light gold and moderate bitterness. Not quite up to the Pilsen brews of the Czech Republic but definitely easier than most prescriptions! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SinH4 (6265) - Garching b. M�nchen, GERMANY - SEP 13, 2017
Tap. Clear gold color with white head. Aroma is grainy, grassy, hopspice. Taste is earthy hopspice, grassy, a touch grainy, thin malt body. Not great.

Cerveja clara com m�dia forma��o de espuma. Notas de malte e cereais............

gripweed57 (2868) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - AUG 29, 2017
From old tasting notes. Labeled as "Weihenstephaner Edel Pils Feinherb". Clear green, gold color. Big dense bubbly head. Fine small bead carbonation. Light sweetish malt/hop aroma. Big hoppy toasted malt flavor. Very little carbonation. The sweetness that shows upfront fades quickly and becomes dry and spicy in finish. Excellent long lasting head and lacework.
