GBZ59 (1129) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - APR 3, 2014
Botella de 330ml. Copa Pilsner. Color pajizo y transparente. Espuma blanca, capa tupida y persistente. Trazos de miel, maltas pálidas, grano y leve aroma floral en nariz, con un sutil y subyacente toque sulfuroso. Entrada vivaz, malteada seguida por limpio amargor. Cuerpo ligero y carbonatación moderada. Textura aguada. La nota floral permanece y genera un final amargo. Reseca, refrescante y de fácil asimilación. Fiel representante del Estilo Pilsner Alemán. 330ml bottle. Footed Pilsner glass. Straw color, crystal clear appearance. White froth, close & lasting head. Hints of honey, pale malt, grain, slight floral to the nose, as well as slight underlying sulphur. Crispy & malty upfront followed by clean bitterness. Light body. Moderate carbonation. Watery. Floral bitterness lingers & provides bitter finish. Dried, refreshing & easy drinkable. Nice spot of the German Pilsner style.

An ok pilsner overall. Light blonde liquid, smells little bit metal and leave a bitter aftertaste.

I?ll have to say that German "domestic" pils is much more flavorful than what we have in the states. That said, this was more for entertainment than anything. Not really that good but after slamming a tall boy in 10 minutes I?m glad I drank it.

Slightly hazy, highly carbonated, thick head, really nice lacing. I was in the mood for a Pils and this was at a pretty low price, so I figured it was worth a shot. Floral and Grassy. Too sweet and fruity. Almost a champagne like quality. Not what I have come to expect in a Pils. Not bad overall, just not what I am looking for in the style.

This is a classic pilsner. It could serve as a baseline for the style. The aroma is both malty and hoppy. The appearance is pale with high carbonation but a thin head. The taste is excellent, rather grainy with the distinctive pilsner bite on the end and a long finish.

Lowenbrau (1937) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - FEB 6, 2014
330ml bottle from Hipercor.
In short: a hoppy pilsener.
Pours quite clear bright gold, with nice white head, poor retention, some lacing. Malty, sweet, grasy aromas. Light body, high carbonation, crispy texture. Taste is malty sweet, some honey, herbal, grassy, mild bitter. Dry finish. Correct one.
