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

felsenpils (151) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 12, 2013
This is a fine example of a Bavarian Pilsener. NIce bright golden color, great foam retention, good bitterness and a bit of a hop aroma. NIce and soft and clean, you can drink it by the bucket. This is one of the beers that American microbrewers never get right. One of the finest Pilseners imported from Germany.

snoworsummer (4301) - 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 (4065) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2015

thirstyrabbit (1679) - 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.

Icedwarf (1134) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - AUG 19, 2015
Helder geel bier met schuim. Smaak is bitter hoppig en fris zoals pils moet zijn. Goed bier.
