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".

Ughsmash (7429) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 2, 2011
Bottled. Poured clear, pale golden with a moderate cap of white head. The aroma picked up skunk first, with honey and bready notes following.. light husky accents.. not enticing. The flavor found more of the honey plus some pale malt at the core.. much less skunk, but the hops were a bit dank.. finished shaper, with nondeScript bitterness, honey, and essence of skunk. Light-bodied, prickly, and sharp at times on the palate.. not a smooth flow.. not a good beer.

330ml Bottle: Aroma of pils malt and noble hops, with some grain too. Poured yellow/gold in color with a medium-sized, creamy, white head that greatly diminished but lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer. Clear. Sparkling. Flavor is slightly sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of Pils malt, noble hops, water, and grain. Light body. Thin, then dry texture. Average carbonation. Slightly sweet, lightly bitter, Pils malt, grain, and noble hop finish is dry. Very watery.

nuplastikk (5270) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 9, 2011
11.2oz bottle. Pale, filtered, transparent yellow-tan. Thin, soapy white head. A pretty standard Pils, and while not exceptional, still captures the style well enough. Some peppery hop bite up front, and a light doughy finish, a touch of alcohol warmth. Some buttery straw notes, but otherwise very pleasant.

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - NOV 16, 2010
[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.

hair-old (191) - 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 (6920) - 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 (5360) - 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.
