COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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".

[Tap] Pours a clear golden color with a foamy white head. Aroma of grassy hops and cereal malts. Fresh hoppy nose includes light citrus and grass. The taste is of grains, light malts and floral hops. Dry and moderately hoppy finish was reminicent of northern German examples of the style. Lively carbonation and average body. Fresh and tasty overall. I am a little skeptical about how good this would taste in the bottle, but I recommend the tap version.

Bought at the local liquor store, but i was surprised that there was only 33 ratings for this. The store isnt that diverse. Anyway, pours a clear yellow with little to no head. Taste is hay, grass, and floral.

Ungstrup (29084) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 26, 2010
Bottled. A light golden beer with a lazing white head. The aroma has notes of malt and straw as well as lighter notes of citrus and bread. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, straw, and bread.

hair-old (183) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 26, 2010
Alc/vol at the perfect 4.8% guarantees this will have a tart refreshing hop taste which it does.Without a doubt the BEST pils beer I have had in years.No metalic tin can taste in this brew,copper kettle smoothness at its best.Very refreshing and highly recommended,the hotter the outdoor temperature the better it will taste.Reminds me of Eichbaum Urich from 30 years ago.Pity on the green bottles which will destroy a good brew in very little time):Make sure you get some out of a light sealed case.

gunnar (5108) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUL 15, 2010
Bottle at my hotel in Vienna. Pours straw coloured with a small white head. Lots of visable carbonation. light sweet malty aroma. Bitter, hop centered flavor, with ok malt balance, but definitely on the hoppy side. Decent bitter finish as well. Light body. Ordinary pilsner.

Skyview (5150) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUN 26, 2010
Picked up a sixer at Cellars Wine & Spirits. Pours a clear golden straw colroed brew with an average size off-white head that quickly dissipates to a thin ring and some spotty lacing. Aroma of green bottle skunk at first and then a citrus and golden grain malt. Taste is slightly tart, mild bitterness with flavors of tart apple, hint of skunked citrus and some green cabbage. Finish is bitter and tart with some apple and cabbage aftertaste.

RobertDale (3309) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - JUN 12, 2010
11.2 oz bottle from Beer of the Month Club. Pours yellow with a decent white head. Slight floral hops aroma. Taste a little of the hops, a bit dry and a faint metallic taste. Nicely carbonated. OK.

skoll (420) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - JUN 12, 2010
11.2 oz bottle Pours pale yellow - medium lasting head. Aroma dominated by hops this bottle had a slight skunk aroma to it, with notes of sweet malt. Only lightly sweet flavor with a dry end, even a bit fruity. Interesting creamy mouth feel, but not as bitter as other Pilseners.

The shiny green bottle from a local Grocery Outlet. Pours gold with a frothy white head. Aroma of grassy hop. Could be a hint of skunk. Crisp. Lightly bready. Lots of hop. If there was skunk it left. Finishes fairly dry. Nicely bitter. Not the best pils, but certainly a decent one.
