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".

Not all that good, but at least it was cheap. Pours light golden with little head. Smells of feet and stale grain. Tastes of water and grass. Crisp.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 14, 2012
Poured from a green bottle, this has a golden body with a short white head and has a grainy, sweet aroma with a touch of grassy and floral hops. It’s medium bodied and a bit oily. The flavor is pretty sweet and the hops take on a moderate earthy bitterness. The finish is dry and dirty.

adnielsen (10374) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 18, 2011
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilburs, Fort Collins, Colorado. Somewhat hazy, light golden appearance with a small white head. Lightly floral/grassy hoppy, grainy pils malty aroma. A little watery and a bit thin. Light grassy, floral hoppy, light pils malty flavor. Disappointing.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle. Light straw yellow pour with a smaller white head with decent lacing. Aroma is a little bit floral, and some funky pils malts. Lighter palate. Taste is not unpleasant - sweet malts, floral/herb, and a touch of hops to make it a little interesting.

Pours a clear and pale yellow beer with a white head. The aroma is malt, straw and notes of hops. The flavor follows the nose with a higher level of hops. The palate is dry with sweetness and some bitterness. Overall a beer below average.
