Brewed according to ancient Bohemian recipes and left to mature with a prolonged aging process, the Hirter Privat Pils has a different taste than a typical North German pils.

The soft mountain spring water used for brewing this GMO-free, non-pasteurized and purely natural specialty beer comes from the Hanslbauer spring in the water protection area directly opposite the brewery, underlining the beer’s pure, aromatic hop note and typical taste.

The Hirter Privat Pils is highly fermented, resulting in a naturally slender taste that beer connoisseurs often refer to as “semi-dry”. Slender on the palate, the beer has a harmonious, bittersweet finish. However, the delicately bitter note is never overpowering, but reveals its typically soft character as an integral flavor element. Another characteristic is the mild carbonic acid structure, which ensures optimum flavor. 12.3°

Kita (1914) - Koper, SLOVENIA - OCT 16, 2016
Bottle, 0.50l. Clear pale golden color with medium creamy white head and sparkling appearance. Aroma is grassy, grainy, dusty and a bit citric. Taste starts light to medium sweet grainy and rich malty, following is refreshing grassy and a bit medicinal, mouthfeel is crisp and dry, while finish is medium bitter. Light to medium body, thin texture and lively carbonation in palate. Proper pils with clean but quite rich taste...

hauxe (445) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - SEP 11, 2016
Pours clear gold from the bottle and leaves a creamy white head that lingers for the duration. Grassy, floral aroma. Taste is a touch honey sweet, with a light bitterness arising near the end. Makes an impression that is at once soft, crisp, and harmonious. Pretty good for a pils.

0.5 l bottle from a random gas station. A slightly above average pilsner; grassy hops in aroma and grainy malts in taste. Short finish, light body. Have had many worse.
