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".

RobertDale (3583) - 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.

Smells a bit skunky, and pours up with almost no head. The taste is strong, but not really good. It’s a bite with no purpose or flavor. It doesn’t taste so bad when you get to the end of the bottle, maybe you just get used to it a bit. I guess it’s not much worse than Old Style, though.

chaz01 (190) - Miamisburg, Ohio, USA - MAY 4, 2010
12 ounce bottle from beer of the month club, poured into a German Pilsner glass. According to the BOMC, although Czech often gets credit for inventing the Pilsner, the first lager beers were brewed in Austria in 1941. Clear yellow straw color with lots of thick foamy head (producing nice lacing) and many tiny bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass. Grassy, floral aroma. More grass notes with a bready, doughy (I keep thinking pretzel dough, but maybe that’s from the beer’s region) flavor. Pleasant tobacco hoppy bitterness in the finish that lingers forever. Well carbonated, light bodied with a very dry finish leaving you wanting more. Very nice session beer or beer to have on a hot day. Would pair nicely with a large pizza or maybe a cheeseburger on the grill.

PhatB420 (635) - Pittsfield, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 2, 2010
11.2oz from beer of the month club. Small lasting head gives way to nothing. Taste is tinny and boring. Straw color reminds me of an old western without the west. Taste brings nothing important to the surface, the hop and malt combo is horrilbe. This is a fine reason why pilsner, imported or not, is on the ass end of my beer spectrum. Blah.

BvilleBronc (85) - Biglerville, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 15, 2010
11.2 oz bottle pour from beer of the month cub. clear bubbly pale yellow with flimsy white head that quickly disappears. Aroma is strong on the pils malt as expected with a tinge of grape notes. Flavor is dry pils malt with the hint of tart like unripene grapes. very thin texture and a slight metallic tone in the short dry finish. Classy looking bottle though.

altonbrownd (3681) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 1, 2010
On tap in Alpbach, Austria. Golden body with small head. Nose of corn, egg and malts. Taste of dry malts. Watery, a tad sweetish. Not bad at all.

KyotoLefty (6581) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 25, 2009
Bottle. Medium gold color, good head of foam. Aroma of hops with malt. Bitter, hop centered flavor, with ok malt balance, but definitely on the hoppy side. Decent bitter finish as well. Relatively light body and high carbonation. Pretty good, but a step down from the best in Austria.

33cl bottle; Clear, pale golden colour with a short foamy white head. Slightly sweet malty and papery nose with notes of grassy hops. Sweet-bitter flavour with a tinge of metal, light to medium bodied, crispy on the tongue. Flat malty base with traces of cardboard; moderately dry papery malty and slightly bitter finish with grassy hops. Plain brew. 26.XI.08
