Ein sehr elegantes rezentes Pils süddeutscher Brauart. Glanzfein, strohgelb mit stabilem feinporigem Schaum serviert in der Krameliten - „Pilstulpe“. Die spezielle Glasform verstärkt die citrusartigen Aromanoten die durch den Hallertauer Aromahopfen erzeugt werden. Die deutliche Bittere ist erst im Nachtrunk zu spüren. Lehnen Sie sich zurück und geniesen Sie es vor dem Essen oder zu einem Salat. Stammwürze: 11.5%. Formerly known as Donau Pils.

When it’s called a Pils, it sould be a Pils! Sounds logic and you might think why is he stating this? Well, because a lot of German Pilseners, especially the big mass produced ones have moved very far from the traditional Pilsener character. Especially when it comes to the bitterness. A lot of those beers show IBU figures around 20... far too low for a classic Pilsener. Not this one! The aroma is a nice balance between crisp, grassy hops and toasted bread, not over pronounced but clearly present. The same applies to the taste where the lean and elegant body turns into a nice dry finish. IPA addicted will tell you that there are no hops, but this is what a Pilsener should offer. A light, fluffy hop bitterness in a easy drinkable beer.

Clean crisp German Pils. Nothing fancy and true to the style. Nice and drinkable.

oh6gdx (23912) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 29, 2015
Bottled. Yellowish golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is floral, grassy, some slight salty notes along with mild grain. Flavour is grassy and herbal along with some grains and mild bready and biscuity malts to it. Fresh, but nothing that special. Good thirstquencher though.

Klassisches Gebräu mit einem leicht derb-herben Hintergrund und schon ein klein wenig an Hopfen im Aroma. Trinkbar, recht einseitig, aber ganz ok.

Bottle from Pinvinzub - thank you, Günther! The beer has got a clear golden colour with an steady head and crisp body. Aroma of hops and grass. Taste of hops, light malt, grass and citrus fruits. Refreshing and crisp. Solid Pils.

MoritzF (9015) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - NOV 13, 2011
(bottle, 33cl) Clear, pale golden colour with a blond and dense foamy head of medium size. Sweet malty and delicately herbal and sweaty hoppy aroma. Bitter-sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with an almost crisp carbonation. Slightly cardboardy malty taste with a good dash of herbal and subtle fruity hops, unfortunately getting slightly metallic towards the bitter-sweet and slightly papery finish. Not completely bad but also not very good. 03.XI.11
