COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Der Klassiker! 1956 von Leonhard Hofmann kreiert, das erste Bier nach Pilsener Brauart im Aischgrund. Für Liebhaber hopfenbetonter Biere. Sehr dünn gemaischt, um nur die „edlen Stoffe“ aus dem Malz zu ziehen. Kalt vergoren und klassisch kalt gereift. Hellgoldene Farbe mit feinperliger Kohlensäure. Eine Sommerwiese frischer Düfte. Im Antrunk weich und voll (ein Bier, das uns die leeren Hopfenwässer, die lange Zeit gebraut wurden, vergessen lässt), angenehme Rezens, im Nachtrunk erfreut die feine Hopfenbittere den Gaumen! Ein wirklicher, „Aischgründer Klassiker“ entstanden durch traditionelle, handwerkliche Braukunst! Malz: helles Pilsner Gerstenmalz, Hopfen: Hallertauer Nordbrauer, Hallertauer Tradition, Wasser: weiches Brauwasser aus unserem Brunnen, Hefe: untergärige Bierhefe, Stammwürze: 11, 8 %, Alkohol: 4,9 %.

Steffan (48) - WALES - JUL 6, 2016
Aroma of lemongrass, appearance typical of the style, decent 1.5 finger head. Smooth bitter taste and easy in the mouthfeel. Quite a malty creamy pils which gives off some grapefruit. May have drunk it at a temperature above what it should have been but this is a class pilsener with quite a lot of complexity.

Moravius (1063) - Beijing, CHINA - MAY 22, 2014
Flasche (50 cl) von Hopfen & Malz, Berlin. - Sattes Goldgelb, leicht trüb. - Im Antrunk wunderbar grasig-scharfer Hopfen mit leichten Zitrusspitzen. Saftiges helles Malz. Durchschnittlich rezent. Für ein Pilsener recht kräftiger Malzkörper. Leicht mineralisch. Im Abgang grasig-herber, leicht harziger Aromahopfen. - Musterhaftes süddeutsches Pils mit besten Hopfenaromen auf solider Malzgrundlage. Kein simpler Durstlöscher - dafür hat es zuviel Körper - aber ein Genuß.

ThirstyBird (2566) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2014
Pours clear deep yellow with a full fluffy white head. The smell is moderate malt sweetness, toasted, mildly hoppy, citrus and grass. The taste is similar to the nose ending with a sweet malt & grassy hop balance ending dry. Light+ body - a bit slick with soft very fine carbonation.

McTapps (6421) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - AUG 18, 2013
Bottle. Pours out in a clear golden colour with steady head and medium body. Awful nose of sweat and acid. Taste of fresh hops, acid, grass, citrus fruits and light barley. Floral hints. Very sour-bitter finish with big dusty and boring elements. Below average, but refreshing.

MichaelAwesome (6377) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 18, 2013
Zu Beginn recht süffig, efrischend mit brotigen Anklängen, danach etwas dumpfer, recht metallisch und etwas derb. Ganz ok als Erfrischung.

3fourths (9059) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Bottle from Getränke Kistner in Forchheim.
Straw yellow with a small white head.
First aroma impression: lemon oil hops, starchy / husky pilsner malt.
Citrus flower and mild herbal green spiciness.
Waxy lemon lip balm.
Clean, bright, zesty, juicy, very expressive aroma and flavor.
Medium-high bitterness; off-dry sweetness.
Quenching acid; smacking, crisp minerality.
Even so it has some limpness to the body, some wateriness.
Lemon oily residue in the finish.
Surprisingly good batch, or just surprisingly overlooked by a lot of people?

SirRepsol (158) - Cologne, GERMANY - MAY 15, 2013
from bottle. pours a clear yellow colour with a two-finger rocky white head that quickly fades away. aroma of floral hops and herbs with a slight amount of toasty maltiness and skunkiness in the background. light body, watery mouthfeel and average carbonation. the hopfen gold is characterised by quite a good balance of sweet and bitter notes and a taste that is definitely above that of your average german pilsener. highly drinkable session beer with some grassy and bready flavours and a pleasent bitter aftertaste, but nothing more...
