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".

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.

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.

Not bad, not great. Let it sit out of the fridge for a few minutes before opening. Poured with a medium sized, fine, white head that mostly subsided soon and a little lace. Color is a clear, straw yellow with some small bubble trails. Aroma is malt, grain, hop, fresh cut grass, and a hint of skunk. Flavor is clean, similar to nose, malt stands out and so does the carbonic acid. Body is good and crisp aided by good carbonation for style. Finish is like flavor and has some length. Serviceable beer. Would work as session.

Light looking beer with a slightly fruity flavour rather reminiscent of an English summer bitter, but it is most definately a pilsner in aroma and appearance.

nuplastikk (5371) - 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.

I agree with jbrus. The aroma remindes really of the aromas of a brewery. Taste has good notes of aroma hop, fruity, light bitter. Very good pils

0.5l bottle courtesy of and shared with heavy whose mother brought it from Austria (thanks!)
Poured a slightly gilded pale yellow colour with a small white fluffy persistent head. Yup, this one is definitely different from the most. A light but quality agrumey hoppy nose, some maltiness. Hersbrücker? Should be. The same hopiness is echoed in the tastem with a soft body that ends up being dry near the end. A tasty (if a bit light), quality pils!.

[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.
