Drake (14332) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 27, 2010
500 mL bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear pale yellow color with a very faint haziness. Large head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of pale bready malts, faint grassy hops, biscuity notes and a faint caramel sweetness in the finish. The taste is bready malts, caramel, raisin and faint grassy hops. Medium bodied. crossovert (14128) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 8, 2011
It is a decent pils with a malty, almost spicy edge. I had it form the minikeg and it was satisfying on a hot day. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 11, 2007

Bottle. Pours sparkling light yellow with an average, frothy, white head, somewhat diminishing with fair lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (grain, hay), average hops (grass), average yeast (dough, sweat, horse blanket) with notes of vegetable and corn. Light bodied, oily texture, lively carbonation, and an astringent finish. Average duration, light sweetness, acidity, and bitterness. Bov (13354) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 14, 2009

Bottle, bought @ Ambrosetti, Berlin.Mariusz (12300) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - SEP 21, 2012
Clear, pale golden with a fine, frothy white head. Nicely hoppy aroma, grass, grapefruit, peanuts. Low carbonation, good dryness. Flavour is quite hoppy, bready malts, some spiciness. A bit earthy and peppery. A light paper-ish feel, but otherwise, this is one hell of a pils!
This is a classic and good example of a pils. Very clean and with a refreshing tart bitterness in the end. rosenbergh (11925) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 13, 2009
330 ml bottle. From Germany.
Hazy golden colour with thin white head. Hoppy, grassy aroma with some sweet lemon, like ice tea in a good way. Flavour is raw hoppy, bready and some bitterness. Very good German Pilsener. Want to have another one. madsberg (11798) - Søborg, DENMARK - APR 25, 2004
Bottled: Golden coloured. Clear. Off white lasting head. Fruits, malt and sweetness in the aroma. Malt, hops and sweetness in the flavour. Smooth. Very nice balanced bitterness in the end. Good one. hopscotch (11409) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 10, 2002
The aroma is a bit yeasty and lightly malty. Notes of citrus, honey and apple.
Moderately malty and lightly sweet up front. A touch tart, sweet and bitter on the backside. Medium-bodied with a slightly oily, but mostly watery mouthfeel. Fizzy carbonation. Lengthy, mostly dry and grassy finish. Drank the beer at about 65 degrees. Probably about 10 to 15 degrees too warm. At proper temperature, the finish is probably much more crisp and clean. Just a guess. Not a pils fan, even in the heat of Summer. Fairly pleasant drinking... which is as far as the style allows me to go.
This crystal clear, straw colored beer has a large frothy white head that is mostly diminishing. Leaves a great lacing.
