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".

Bottle. Light golden colour with a weak thin white head. Aroma of grasses and hops. Taste is typical mass-produced Pilsner.

16erBlech (23) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - AUG 13, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2014 0,33l bottle. I’m not a big fan of Pils, too dry and bitter and therefore not very drinkable

kdm1984 (650) - Missouri, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Aroma: wow, no skunk out of the bottle despite green bottling! Amazing. Not much to smell here until it’s poured into the glass where the unmistakable and pleasing aroma of noble hops becomes apparent. There is also a bit of grass. Flavor: again pretty mild at first, but then there is a little hop bitterness in the finish. Very clean. Reminded me a little of Warsteiner, but a little more refined, if not quite as flavorful or popcorn-y. Nice pils. Took a risk getting a six-pack of these without sampling beforehand, but I’m glad I did. Will work very well for the summer especially.

Saeglopur (307) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - APR 25, 2014
Bottle. Clear, pale golden body, with a big, frothy, white head. Aroma of grains, hay, grass, honey. Taste is a bit watery, with grains, bread, herbs, honey. Mouthfeel is light, slick, with a low carbonation and it finishes medium bitter, with grains and herbs. Average Pilsener, nothing special.

MarkoNm (503) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - MAR 18, 2014
Pours out a typical golden color, clear, and topps the glass with an average white foamy head that goes away rather soon. The aroma is again nothing special. There are some malts and some (sweet) grains present. The tatse naturally follows the nose. Sweet start, followed by balanced body coming together with mild (only just) bitterness. Nice, drinkable, ordinary.

Lightrider (307) - Bristol, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Bottle into an ale glass. Aroma is a lite hoppy grass. Pour is a honey color with a white head. Taste is a warm malt bitter. Finish is a crisp bitter.

cazort (516) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Very malty yet light bodied and crisp. I found this to be extremely peculiar; this is the first Austrian Pilsner that I’ve tried and it was completely unlike German or Czech Pilsners in aroma. The aroma had a strong maltiness, suggesting of sourness, and strongly reminiscent of an Oktoberfest, but slightly more grassy. Yet the body was light and the mouthfeel crisp. The flavor was less bitter than I was expecting but still moderately bitter. Enjoyable and I’d drink again--unique in character and I can see craving this particular style of beer; most beers that are this malty in aroma are on the heavier side.

tmoreau (2380) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - SEP 22, 2013
12 oz. green bottle poured to a Czech-pils glass, displaying a hazed, light gold hue, with white, sudsy head froth that diminished rather quickly to a bubbly film, but left a lasting amount of patchy lacing. The aroma presented a strong lager nose that was Pils malt, some husk-like scent, and a bit of graininess. Light bodied, the lively carbonation accentuated the noticeably earthy, dry, and lingering hop bitterness, and finished in like fashion. Amazingly, no green bottle skunk! Sessionable, crisp, and pretty clean.

mile (2969) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 21, 2013
Bottle. Light golden, small to average and mostly diminishing head. Light to moderate malty and lightly sweetish aroma, faint metal and faint hoppyness. Body is light to medium, malty and lightly sweetish, light grassy hoppyness. Finish is short to average, malty and drysih, ligh metal and light grassy hoppyness. Dryish and bit watery pils with notes of metal.

Cuso (4429) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 31, 2013
Tap. Golden color with huge white head. Malty aroma. Malty taste with hoppy bitter finish.

bierkoning (10163) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2013
Tap. Blonde. Apple and soft grassy notes in the aroma. Thinnish. Soft grassy flavor. Uneventful, but acceptable pilsener
