This is my favorite pilsner. I was stationed in Bitnurg from 1980-1984 and lived very close to the old brewery. I remember the smell of the hops throughout the downtown and the remarkable taste of a fresh draft or a stubbe. Have had the imported bottles, not the same. But I kknow this is a top quality beer.

I’m very surprised to read high marks for this bland fare. Is this a case of their doing something different to the exported variety? I did not like this beer much - a sad metallic little brew without much flavor - but I had some out of one of those mini kegs here in Michigan.

I would simply sum this beer up as being the best beer I have ever had the pleasure of drinking. A fantastic beer from a fantastic place. A shame more outlets here in the UK don’t stock it. Fortunately I friends in Germany who supply me with mass quantities for my personal consumption. Smooth and herbal with a sublime after taste, trouble is you just want more and more... Tastes even better on tap.

I’ve had much better samples on tap than from this bottle. Almost as sturdy but this doesn’t seem as clean as the tap beers of the same brand.

Nothing special, better than the industrial beers here, but not as good as many of the micros.

UPDATED: JUN 26, 2004 Light golden colour; rich herbal-hoppy nose; very dry; very bitter with a long, herbal finish. Light-bodied but full of flavour. Great German pilsner, and such a mistunderstood beer.
