Undoubtably the best beer in the world and has held the title in 2010. This alpirsbacher pilsner is, i promise u the best beer you will ever have the pleasure of drinking, even from the bottle. Tasty, crisp, refreshing, sinkable, everything you want from a beer, you have to try it to believe it. Import some or go to the black forest. U wont regret it. If they sold it elsewhere the family of brewers would be millionaires.

Quite strong hop paired with a malty, nearly litte sweet tase. Malt is dominating the aftertaste. A very good one.

bartlebier (1760) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - JUN 5, 2012
German pilsners being what they are in a culture largely lagging behind, I find this SouthWestern pils, normally a bit sweeter and maltier than a lot of the north-german ones to really go out on a limb for taste: really fruity hops on the nose, floral aroma with agreeable sweetness. I really taste the quality of the ingredients in this one and find this beer currently underrated. Somewhat uneven mouthfeel could be improved to make his a, if not world, then surely European-class pils with loads of unexpected tasty charm instead of standard bitterness.

A very good Pils. Mildly in the taste. Softly refreshing taste. Very Good.

Took me by surprise as this is much darker than the usual pils.Plenty of body with a lingering slightly fruity aftertaste. My only reservation was that it was more gassy than most German pils but apart from this slight criticism I would highly recommend.

Bought this in a grocery store in Stuttgart because of the funny label. But inside was a quality pilsner that hit on all cylinders- a nice balance of hops and tart malt with a hint of sweetness made this one a great find.

crossovert (7443) - Illinois, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Bubbly crystal clear pale golden colour with a nice head. Smell is herbs, slight pine, and slight sulphur/minerals. The flavor is very solid for a pils, this is a newly-imported beer and has flavors of mineral, grass, herbs, and bread. It is nice.

Frank (2889) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 3, 2014
This is a tasty pils w/ an old timey label featuring a monk. This means it is everything you want in a pilsner minus drinking it by the mass in a springtime biergarten. This pours a perfectly clear golden color with a nice looking but relatively short lived head of mixed bubbles. The nose doesn’t really impress me that much, just a bit of yeast dough and and some herbal hops but this is an exceptionally crisp and drinkable beer regardless. It’s dry but still has a soft malt presence which is emphasized by gentle carbonation and it finishes clean on the tongue w/ some lingering bitterness and a touch of lemon zest. As it warms, a bit of sweetness develops and it takes on a mouth-filling quality while still staying nice and light on the palate. This is really a great example of a difficult style to nail. Find some time to enjoy one if you like beer.

nuplastikk (4439) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 16, 2014
500ml bottle. Pours a classic filtered yellow-tan. Big frothy white head, steady. Grassy noble hops and classic brewhouse aroma. Pretty solid Pils, perhaps a touch lighter that some of its German brethren. Biting dry hops and a very clean malt backbone. Quite an enjoyable beer.

Bottled(330ml). -quite nice pilsener, slight citrus and flowery flavours, dry and hoppy but a little bit watery finish
