COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Through its delicately tart hop aroma is very digestible. The Grieskirchner brewers affectionately call it their "Zechbier".

Pours a straw color with lots of carbonation, and a bone white half a finger foam that sticks around. Aroma of grassy malts, some funk...typical pils. Mild hops, some lemon, and malt. A refreshing but pretty basic pils. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mile (2749) - 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.

tmoreau (2128) - 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.

MarkoNm (253) - 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.

cazort (497) - 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.

kaser (2118) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 12, 2013
Poured from a bottle at Trump Towers. Golden with a ton of floating bubbles and white head. Crisp refreshing German tasting pilsner. Nothing unique - par for the style

kirk36 (107) - Peabody, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 30, 2013
Received as part of the beer of the month 12 pack. Bitter forward and ending with a very pilsner in between. Meets the style, zesty and citrusy. Light and refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bierkoning (9832) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2013
Tap. Blonde. Apple and soft grassy notes in the aroma. Thinnish. Soft grassy flavor. Uneventful, but acceptable pilsener
