Oakes (12788) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 3, 2009
@ Sandkerwa. Ceramic mug. Looks golden. Herbal hop aroma with light malt underpinning. Very herbal, earthy, mushroomy example with rich pale malts that nonetheless remain in the background.

bierkoning (10555) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - OCT 5, 2005
Malt and butter in the aroma and flavor Some hay-like hopbitterness, persisting in the aftertaste. A touch of barnyard character.

Maria (10176) - Thisted, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2008
The color is beautiful, warm golden and the head is dense and creamy. The aroma has notes of hops. Light fruit and flower and malt. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of slightly dry citrus, flower and malt. The overall impression is pleasant, full and refreshing.

Day Two of the Great Chris Meyer/Aaron Nielsen Franconian Beer Tasting in Schlitz. Prost! Fairly clear golden appearance with a white head. Rich grainy pils, thick cracker malty, thick straw aroma. Really delicious, thick pils malty, somewhat spicy, cracker flavor. Tons of flavor. Nice one!

pivnizub (9005) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAR 20, 2007
Bottle: Clear, golden coloured, mid-sized, slightly lacing white head; sweet-malty nose, with a very restrained fruity "house aroma", some hops on the backseat; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, soft MF, light malty base; sweet-hoppy finish. A pleasant, well rounded Pils..........

MoritzF (8590) - Bochum, GERMANY - APR 9, 2007
(bottle) Clear, pale golden colour with a medium-sized foamy white head. Light-sweet malty, spicy herbal hoppy aroma with a subtle honeyish fruity note, also barnyard. Light-sweet, slightly bitter flavour, medium to light body, pleasantly smooth carbonation. Initially soft malty taste with notes of honey, almost dry, slightly malty, moderately bitter finish with aromatic herbal and slightly spicy hops. Well-crafted Pilsener from Franconia.

Beerhunter111 (8273) - Hasborn, GERMANY - JAN 29, 2014
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein klares goldgelbes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch hopfig, getreidig, grasig. Geschmack hopfig, grasig, lang anhaltende Bitterkeit.

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Barely honeyed malts and subtle hopping are found in this brew’s ever-so-soft mouthfeel.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam covers the hazy blond.
-This definitely lacks the bite I like in German Pilseners.
-The water in this one is as soft as can be. A bit like Roppelt’s or Lieberth’s. Unfortunately, the lacks of hop presence makes this Pils very watery.
-Hebendanz brews are all about mouthfeel, and this one is no exception.
-Carbonation is as low as most gravity-served Kellerbiers.

Bottle at the brewpub.
