This stuff is good in bottle but quite simply great on-tap if you can get it.

Served in a pint (568ml) nonic glass in The Saint, Stockbridge, Edinburgh

On tap this beer is still very refreshing but a lot of the sweeter and fruitier notes which hide in bottle format come out to play here.

As a result of this beer being pulled from handpump rather than tap the beer wasnt very carbonated. This played with my mind a little as you expect a clean and fresh pilsener to have a bit of light carb to it. This didnt effect the quality of the product though and rather it made it quite interesting.

It proved that you can make a clean and refreshing lager without the carbonation ripping off your tongue!

If you like this on bottle try to get it on tap its a totally different beast

Nearly no head and what is there settles to a single layer of rim bubbles. No lace at all. Deep straw color and crystal clear.

Fruity with an undercurrent of unmated, untoasted barley. Very light hop.

Better hop in the taste. This is a spritzy beer with subtle complexity. Relatively dry, but there is a fruitiness as well. The hop comes on with force in the swallow. The aftertaste provides a flowery mouth. The body is light as one would expect for this style.

330ml bottle bought from GapWines, Belfast...

Poured a light amber colour... white head poured pretty big and foamy then faded to decent frothy layer which was maintained throughout by a good steady stream of carbonation... some light patchy lacing...

Aroma - Some caramel mixed with biscuity malts, peppery and grassy hops, light candy sugar, doughy bread, light almond nuttiness, some spicy tropical ripe fruits (orange, light peach)..

Taste - Good strong peppery and grassy hop bitterness, biscuit malts, juicy fruits (pears, orange), some soapy traces, very light toasted bread, light floral honey sweetness, faint chalkiness, some graininess...

Feel - Crisp, sharp and dry... Light body... A very quaffable pilsener...

Overall - A good clean crisp flavourful lager... One of Brewdogs best offerings

Wherein lies the 'juxtaposition' in this brew? In the northern European production of a central European specialty?

This beer pours a slightly hazy pale golden orange hue, with one finger of creamy ecru head, which leaves some decent thick spidery lace around the glass in its wake. It smells strongly of crackery grain, and bitter, floral Saaz hops. The taste is quite in line - crisp, crackery, bready malt, a bit of lemon pepper, and leafy, bitter noble hops. The carbonation is on the low side of moderate, the body medium weight, smooth but for a bit of expected prickliness. It finishes quite dry, the zip and crispness setting you up for the anticipation of the next sip.

A very enjoyable hoppy pils, up there with the best of the German and Czech offerings I've experienced. Maybe it's just the freshness, tho - best before Oct 28, 2011.

330 ml bottle, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 4.9%. Golden colour, moderate white head. Moderate carbonation in the glass. Pleasant aroma of fruity and grassy hops, notes of grapefruit. Zesty flavour with fruity hops (Amarillo), citrussy notes, ending in a formidable burst of bitterness, lingering into the long aftertaste. An excellent lager!

Pours bright gold with bronze highlights and a thin white film that trails. Honeysuckle malts and cut grass hops on the nose. Straight pale malts up front with slight golden syrup, followed by hay, coriander and slight orange blossom hops. Sharp metallic finish, tight spicy hop linger. Light, super crisp, dry.

Just about the driest lager ever. Given the minimum of English malts and what tastes like some very Burton-y water, this lets cutting hops and knife sharp finish shine through.

Probably the most assertive Prima-type pilsener you'll find outside the US and different enough from Trashy Blonde to compliment nicely.

A 330ml bottle with a best-before date of Nov 2011. Label features the usual modern Brewdog branding; the contents are described as a juxtaposition pilsner.

Poured into a Sam Smith's pint glass. A pale golden colour with slight haziness. Considerable carbonation and a thick fluffy head which lasts for a few minutes before fading away. Smells of light grainy malt and hops.

Tastes of golden malt and has considerable bitterness for the style. Lovely fruit and grass notes from the hops; this is a prominent component of the flavour. Smooth, astringent mouthfeel with some tingling from the carbonation. Leaves a pleasing bitter aftertaste. Tasty and very drinkable.

An excellent beer - not sure how true it is to the traditional pilsner style but it is very nice. Much more flavour than your average lager. Would definitely have this again.

Though not quite the Platonic ideal of pilsner picturesqueness, this would stand out in a lineup of other light lagers, somewhat darker than average and crowned with a nice, satiny crop of ivory foam. Big botanical nose that might appeal to gin drinkers, with juniper, mint, orange blossom, and even a bit of bay saturating the milquetoast malts. Crisp and hoppy on the palate, well balanced and blah blah blah it's good, but this doesn't taste like a pilsner. With its hint of diacetyl, over-toasted malts, and herbal hops, this is more like an English golden ale shot through a pilsner lens. The crispness is there, the sprightly carbonation is there, but not the perfectly yeast-free focus of a truly good pils. Plus it is ever so slightly too thick. This is a good beer, and an interesting one, one I wouldn't mind drinking a six pack of - it just has a bit of an identity crisis.

The pour is a clear light golden color with a tall white head. Typical pils aroma of biscuit malt, cracker, and light hops. A nice yeast note, mild esters, and floral hop aromas. Lightly sweet, too. The flavor has just a touch of grass to go along with the floral hops. Bread, biscuit, and cracker malts give a soft sweetness. Light yeast and some hints of apple esters.
