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.

The overall rating of 46 sickens me to the point that I can’t see straight. Let me guess, if it had an obscene amount of american hops, a colorful (or better yet, shiny holographic) logo, and came from Colorado or California it would be a 98. Right? Come on! Americans have recently produced some impressive beers from all styles, but NOTHING like this. Probably the second best beer in existence after Jever Pilsner.

This is a great beer to enjoy with friends. I love the flip top. It makes it so easy to open without needing an opener..

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!

Definitely one of the best tart pilsners from Germany. You need to get used to the aroma and palate but once you like this type of beer you enjoy every mouthful.

A great and stable, creamy head. Hoppy, om the herbal side. Long lasting bitter finish. One of the best german pilseners.

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.

Very pale with nice white foam. The slightly "metallic" tone in the aroma is a precursor of the dry and crisp flavour. A perfectly balanced north german pils.
