Aroma is bready malts and a tinge of hops. The flavor is similar to the aroma with a dry finish. Not really great but decent enough for a session.

Pale, brief frothy head. Dry papery taste, not exciting at all. Not bad, but very dry.

4/16/12. 12oz bottle. Skunk hits the nose as soon as the top is popped. Ugh. Super clear light golden (very light golden) pour with a small off-white head that fades and laces a tiny bit. Huge skunk in the aroma with grainy pils malt, hay, and a touch of a hop bite. Grainy, bready flavor with a bit of corn chips and a zesty hop bite. Meh.

Hangover (1110) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - OCT 15, 2011
Crystal clear yellow pour with a fluffy white head. Strong aroma of grain and hay. High carbonation, active mouthfeel. Flavor is grassy with grain/hay. Strong aftertaste. This is pretty true to style and is pretty good except for the rough finish.

330 ml bottle at home in Germany and picked up at Wasanas. Pours the normal bubbley Pils gold color with a fast to go white head. Aroma is strong pils like hops. Taste is great example of a good crisp German Pils. Ending is a bit bitter for my taste but a very well made Pils.

Koelschtrinker (16429) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 21, 2011
Starker hopfig-herber Geruch. Frischer Antrunk, recht hopfig, der schnell in eine knackige herbe umschlägt. Im Prinzip so, wie ich mir ein Pils vorstelle, leider auch minimal muffig, geht aber in Ordnung. Bitterer, gleichzeitig auch frischer Nachgeschmack. Nicht das süffigste Bier, aber knackig herb, gut! Test vom 13.4.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,9,8,10,11,9 - 9,10

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2011 I really liked this the first time I had it, but subsequent encounters have left me wondering why.
Aroma is very metallic with some pale malt and a hint of noble hops.
Taste is also very metallic up front, with leafy hop bitterness in the swallow, and peppery noble hops in the finish. Malts are barely detectable. I find that brewing with hard water seems to put a harsh edge on the hop character of the finished beer, and I definitely get that here. This may help Bischoff stand up against rich saucy foods better than other pilseners, but for me, makes it less enjoyable alone.

Bottle. Poured a clear golden color with a moderate frothy white head that lasted and had good lacing. Moderate grass hop aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture soft carbonation. Medium grass hop bitter flavor with a medium bitter dry finish of moderate duration. This beer met my expectations.
