A truly great Pils, a little maltier and more ‘Bavarian’ than the rest. The 6-packs are brand new for the American market.

Pils in general aren’t my favorite. This very clear beer has a muted sweet aroma. It goes down clean and smooth but leaves me wanting more. Something good to wash down a bratwurst, but not something to savor on its own.

Moravius (1076) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUL 16, 2016
Dose (50 cl) aus dem Sanlitun Friendship Store, Peking. - Goldgelb, klar, üppige Schaumkrone. - Geruch sehr hellmalzig-süß mit zu milden, schwach floralen Hopfenaromen, etwas kalkig. - Antrunk überwiegend malzsüß mit Weißbrot. Die schwach zitronige Hopfenherbe ist sehr zurückhaltend. Ganz schwache Gummi-Anklänge. Mild rezent, weich im Mund. Im Abgang schwach krautige Herbe. - Malzbetontes Pilsener des bayerischen Typs mit sehr schwach ausgeprägter Hopfung und ein wenig billiger Anmutung. Trotzdem sehr süffig.

snoworsummer (4530) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 19, 2016
Draft at the Gnarly Barley. Pours hazy dark gold with a fizzy off white head. Tastes like pale malts, faint corn, booze, and light beer. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like sweet corn, pale malts, and bread.

Gubihumle (540) - Nørre Aaby, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2015
Flaske. Farven er strågul og skumkronen er hvid og cremet. Aromaen er humle, græs og let malt medens smagen er humle og malt. Er lidt mere bitter end de fleste andre pilsnere. Men netop dette er det gode ved den.

hens (736) - Tallinn, Estonia, ESTONIA - OCT 6, 2015
0.33L bottle. Light hop and white bread aroma. Pale yellow. Medium size white hat on top, disappears. Corn, vegetable soup, lightly malt felt somwhere. Quite reserved taste. Bit watery also. Bitterness is ok in finish, but that is not enough.

zacgillbanks (4375) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2015

thirstyrabbit (1710) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 28, 2015
Bottle as "EKU Pils"; 4,9% ABV. Straw yellow body, tall lasting head. Aroma has some bread and dry herbal hoppiness. Crisp and pale body. Flavour has a crisp and dry herbal hoppiness, which might not appeal to ale drinkers who expect sweet fruity hoppiness. Maybe that’s the reason this and other German Pilsners are so underrated here. But it’s a decent one.
