The Grieskirchner Pilsner is the flagship of the brewery Gries churches. Anyone who has tasted the bitter delicate hop aroma once, will not easily be persuaded to an alternative.

Through its delicately tart hop aroma is very digestible. The Grieskirchner brewers affectionately call it their "Zechbier".

12 ounce bottle from some mediocre, smelly liquor store in Rockford that isn’t worth remembering. Pours a rather dull dark amber-gold into my König Pilsener glass at slightly above fridge temperature, leaving little head...aroma is mostly malty (biscuit - light sourdough), I don’t get the DMS that some others have mentioned; it’s pleasing enough but nothing special....rather sweet, bit of honey, reasonable malt presence at the front though it thins out quite a bit at the finish, little hop character noticeable...drinkable enough but forgettable.

It’s funny, I was drinking this regularly a couple of years ago, wasn’t rating stuff, wasn’t really looking out so much for new beers, and I was fairly happy with it. It came from a different - and more reliable - beer purveyor, but still I suspect some of it is just me, and rating. Rating makes one more critical - THINKING about it, rather than just swilling it down; and even though I had rated thousands of beers, it’s easy to get out of the habit of thinking critically. Easy to loosen one’s standards when one isn’t focusing on the same things. We could apply such standards to far more things we experience in life, and we would generally be better off I think.

JPDIPSO (5519) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 11, 2016
Clear lighter straw color with a diminished white head. Dry malt and grassy hops aromas. Why is the first quaff of the day always seem better than what it might actually be. The first sip brought lightly toasted malt, sweet pale malt and a nice balance of bitter/acidic hops. Later sips bring out some watery areas, with grainy to doughy parts. Still a decent warm weather quenching type pils. 7/10

Pours a rolling rock colored clear and pale, with a thin white head. The aromas are sweet, light grain, and a tad skunky. The taste is fairly dry, watery, and very smooth. This is a very subtle & refreshing pilsner, almost like a very clean light beer, and just what the doctor ordered after cutting some grass. Overall light, refreshing, subtle, and smooth with little to offer personality wise, but highly drinkable and good. It’s amazing to me, how similar this is to an American mass produced lager, or even light beer, but how much more points it gets for being an import.

It is not the best pils not the worst beer. The color is typical for a pils with an average carbonation and thin foam. There is the hop as usual and for a pils is really malty, there is something heavy, at the final note.

Senka (1044) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 14, 2016
33cl. Clear golden with decent head. Aroma of fresh hops as should be. Slightly sour, bitter and not so sweet. Medium bodied, with creamy feel to it. Not tangy, but rather smooth. Carbonation is superb. One of the best Pilseners in a while.
