Steffan (104) - WALES - OCT 7, 2017
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.

3.5
Cunningham (8246) - 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

4.2
gripweed57 (2793) - 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.

3.3

JefVerstraete (3546) - Oosterzele, BELGIUM - JUL 17, 2017
Bottle from Gourmeo24. Clear golden colour, white foam. Best Before Jan 2018. Skunky, wet dog, sweet malts, oxidized. Very bad pilsener, something went wrong?

3.4
tmrmwel (2204) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 16, 2017
Bottle, one month before bbd. Pours clear, pale yellow, with a big creamy head. Aroma is zesty herbal hops, with grassy and citrusy notes, as well as malts with cereals and toffee. Creamy body, with soft to average carbonation. Flavour is crisp, zesty hops, with herbs, floral and citrusy notes, as well as malts with cereals and toffee.

3.9
MNAle (216) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 26, 2017
Aroma, grass, bread, earthy. Pale bright polished gold with small rising bubbles to a thick creamy white head, lacing down the side of the glass. Gorgeous looking. Smooth, substantial feel. Bready malts and pils yeast dominate the initial taste, balanced with bittering in the middle and into the dry finish (light bittering by American craft standards, but just right for a German pils).
