The king of the beers - Unique in the taste. The Premium-Pilsener of highest quality.

Admittedly, I only have limited experience with true pilsners. I did enjoy this though. It is clean, dry and hoppy. Aromas are grassy, herbacious and distinctly different from any others I’ve experienced. Crystal clear straw color with a large, white head. Great thirst-quenching ability.

Admiral (524) - Schnecksville, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 7, 2002
Nice NW German dortmund-style Pils. Hops are grassy-herby, with nice bitterness. Good head retention. Smelled slightly skunky, but tasted OK.

smmaaren (522) - NORWAY - OCT 12, 2014
On tap at restaurant in Albir, Spain. Clear golden colour with a big white head. Typical pilsener- style beer. Pleasent with grilled food.

Pershing (517) - Garland, Texas, USA - SEP 11, 2010
Clear gold with a small white foamy head. Moderate amount of carbonation to fit the style. Floral-grain aroma. Slightly bitter on the palate. Finishes a little dry. A perfect example of a Central European Pilsner.

AWMiller (512) - Mansfield, Texas, USA - SEP 22, 2011
This brews pours up a clear yellow/amber colored body with a nice frothy head (not a thick one but nice enough!). Wonderful scents and flavors of hops and robust malts. The body is very light with just the right amount of carbonation. A nice German pils indeed!

Wulfstan (509) - California, USA - APR 22, 2008
This is another wonderful German pilsner. It’s deep gold with a medium, creamy white head that steadily shrinks to a thin, permanent top. The aroma is a solid, full-bodied pilsner with a lot of sweet grain, hay, herbal hops. It’s fruity and aromatic. The taste is nice fruity grain, honey, apple, a light but persistent pein-herb flavour, grass, a light fruity-honey sweetness dominated by the hop flavour and bitterness. Compared to Bitburger, the grain flavour is weaker, with more of an apple quality, and the herb character is about the same in strength but the flavour is different.

hobsch (505) - Cologne, GERMANY - AUG 4, 2013
Bottle 0.33l steini. Typical german mass market Pils. Average carbonation, average bitterness etc. Nevertheless still the best of this stuff.

delnoche (503) - Alamogordo, New Mexico, USA - AUG 22, 2009
33cl bottle poured into a footed pilsner. Sparkling gold with ample white head. Aroma is grassy hops and skunk. Flavor is metallic and bitter. Finish is the same. Not good.

EnSiFeRuM (501) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 23, 2008
Canette de 500 ml. La bičre se présente avec une robe dorée-soleil surmontée d’une mousse blanche fugace. Au nez on découvre des arômes de céréales, de jus de pomme et de houblon frais. En bouche le corps est mince. La bičre nous révčles des saveurs de grain, de pomme et de houblon.

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 19, 2005
Can - malty, crisp, fresh tasting pilsener. Refreshing and clean. (Sounds like I’m writing an ad here) All in all, there’s no reason to load your fridge with the mors popular imports - Heinie, Becks - when this fine pilsener is now readily available.
