look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a Carlsberg pilsner glass.

Look: The body is slightly hazy, deep straw yellow color. The head is white and foamy, it recedes to a light film. Light spots of lacing are all that remain.

Aroma: Lots of grassiness, grains, malty sweetness. A very faint banana fruitiness.

Taste: Very papery and tastes like cardboard. But banana-like flavors coat a grainy, malty body, slightly musty.

Mouthfeel: Very smooth, creamy.

Overall: Perhaps I bought an old bottle, but this just tasted too musty and papery to me. It was lacking any real flavors that popped.

500 ml bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy golden orange color with a small foamy white head with decent retention, that reduces to a ring of lacing. Slight spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, cracker, toasted biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt, earthy hop, and yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, cracker, toasted biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, cracker, toasted biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Good balance and solid robustness of pale malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester flavors; with a solid malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied; with a smooth and lightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is okay. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish. Overall this is a pretty solid Pilsener, obviously showing signs of age. Well balanced pale malt, earthy hop, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth to drink despite lacking carbonation. It was still pretty enjoyable as it stood.

Very interesting in flavor. Is a light golden color with some cloudiness to it. Taste is unique. Kind of sweet and perfumey with hints of banana, I think. It's also a bit nutty, and feels a bit heavy going down, but overall, pretty decent.

Ah, Pinkus. Pinkus Pils. Thanks to Cam and Dan for both sharing 500mls.

A - Dark yellow pour with some haziness. Plenty of rising bubbles and a nicely retaining white head. Good beer-y appearance.

S - Lots of grain, wheat, cereal, some herbal hop, kinda unfortunate cardboard note. Pretty straight up-dirty-sorta-skunked pils scent with a strange appeal to it.

T - Taste is much better, less paper. Very lager-y with grains, toasted bread, biscuity malt, also an improved hop bill with lemony and herbal flavors coming through.

M - Good spritzy carbonation and a decent body. Crispness.

O - The slightly skunky scent is a bit of a bummer but overall a pretty solid pilsner, wouldn't mind sessioning this one.

A- 500ml bottle split into three glasses with a pale yellow body. A white crown builds up to half a finger with a frothy texture. Decent head retention down to a medium ring. Lacing is spotty.

S- Lager yeast slight funk with some sulfur but just a tiny hint of it. Herbal and spicy Noble hops make up the rest of the aroma. Pils grains hinting at a light sweetness.

T- Bitterness and hops pick up quite a bit from the aroma for me with herbal, grassy and spicy notes making up a slight majority of the flavor. Pils grains, lager yeast, a hint of fruits but mostly clean and just a bit sweet.

MF- Body towards the light end with a crisp, silky consistency. The carbonation is medium-high with a moderately bitter finish.

Not a hop-bomb pilsener but there is quite a bit of character from them. Spicy and herbal with a certain crispness and mostly clean yeast.
