plop...A hugh pillowlike head that fades to shaving cream.A northern german pils at it’s finest!Herbal aroma coupled with plenty of hops makes this a benchmark.I can still taste the beer in my mouth 5 minutes after finishing it.If you like the pilsner style,you will love this one.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - APR 1, 2006
Draft at Grenzkrug, Aventoft. Lovely bready malt nose, with a distinct and crisp hop aroma. Pale yellow body with a rocky white head. Bready malt flavor, with a dry and light herbal hop flavor, light bitterness in the end. Very refreshing.

auderale (605) - Minot, North Dakota, USA - MAR 18, 2006
Pours a light golden with a small to no head. Had a spicy malt aroma to it, with a bitter herbal finish. Not a bad pilsener.

Very nice classic German pilsener brewed by a brewery nearly located to my home. Nice aroma and flavor plus a great appearance, including a long lasting head.

33cl bottle: poured light yellow with a medium white head. Herbal hop aroma. Flavor is crisp, clean with a mild bit of grapes and hops. Light apple. Very tasty.

Bottle. Pours with a huge white, creamy head. Amazingly clear, very pale yellow beer. The overall appeareance is simply beautiful. Aroma is floral, herbal hops, as it suits a Northern German Pils. The palate is really pleasant. The flavor sensation begins with a powerful load of finest hops, even more complex than in the aroma. Then you feel a fizzy carbonation and get hints of citrus and fresh hay, after which comes a crisp, dry malt. The finish is endless, on the bitter side, but again very pleasant. A wonderful Pilsener!

EithCubes (5247) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 6, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2006 Second update. Swing-top. Very pale yellow pour - almost clear. The head is a thing of beauty, rocky and fluffy white. Grassy nose, herby, slight floral hoppiness, expecting bitterness. Taste is medium-bitter and hoppy with hay and spice, slight metallic note to start. Lasting, bitter aftertaste. Medium body, can get quite creamy. Rating hasn’t changed, it’s been a consistently good brew each time. Now, if only Flensburger can get away from the tinny hop extracts...this could be a masterful Northern Pils.

Flensburger Pilsner pours to a beautiful, bright, golden color with a bright white head, and a good bit of carbonation. The clarity of this beer is really brilliant, and this might only apply to beer geeks, but it really is a thing of beauty to look at. The nose on this beer is fantastic with lots of vibrant, herbal, grassy aromatics that invite you in. The palate on this beer is fantastic as well, with really crisp pilsner malt flavor on a smooth, round, clean body. Flensburger Pilsner finishes with more crisp malt up front, then ends with a very dry, herbal hop bitterness that lingers on the tongue. This is a flawless example of German Pils and is lager brewing at its best. Sold, clean, delicious, drinkable beer. Das Flenst is a beer you will want to drink a lot of, and I could see myself pounding this beer with impunity. Its hoppy and crisp character, make it a perfect match for a number of classic German dishes, and spicy fare as well. Personally I would not match this one with food. This is a great drinking beer. Sure beer goes great with food, but sometimes you just got to drink beer, and forget about what food goes with it.

From a 12 oz. distinctive shaped Flensburger flip-top short brown bottle with a "Best Before" date on the back label, 07/10/06, that I going to assume is a euro calendar date. Made a very good appearance, poured the palest clear golden with a large foamy, rocky white head that reduced to thin cake-like lacing with a great deal of ringed sticking. Had a big grassy hop aroma with an underlining sweet bready maltiness. Good carbonation and a slick, smooth light bodied mouth feel, good drinkability. Very tasty, sweet bread maltiness, a mild dry grassy hop bitterness and a dry, crisp sweet malty finish, very smooth and balanced overall.
