UPDATED: SEP 29, 2013 I can remember drinking König Pils as a kid in Germany. There was a chain of pubs around the country called "König City" which featured this beer. And you know, it was pretty tasty. But nowadays, it tastes like a watered down Pils with low bitterness, no hop aroma and very little body. I mean, they even admit to an original gravity of 11.3°Plato which is just a joke. Too bad really, but this is a general trend in Germany and there is no hope in sight. Clean, drinkable, but totally boring. How do you make a low quality beer, but still follow the German Purity Law of 1516? Just use less of everything.

jamaty (1152) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 17, 2015
Aspecto de pilsen típica. Muy clara. Aroma delicado a malta. Sabor agradable, sin destacar especialmente. Una buena pilsen, sin más, bebible y menos amarga que la media.

glennmastrange (2424) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUN 15, 2015
Bottle. Light to moderate grain for the malt, herbs for the hops, and faint paper in the background. Head is small, fizzy, white with no lacing and is fully diminishing. Color is sparkling clear light amber. Flavor starts lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes moderately to heavily bitter. Palate is light, watery with a fizzy carbonation and finishes dry. Light and crisp, and a tasty Pilsener

11.2 oz. bottle from old notes. Pours a clear light golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have grainy malts, some mild Noble hops, grass, light body, pretty basic and nothing to repeat.

SamTheBarrel (609) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - MAY 15, 2015
330ml can poured into a Pilsner glass. Appearance is clear pale yellow with a large off-white head that reduced quickly, leaving some lacing. Aroma of cereal, grass and mineral notes. Flavours of cereal, wheat bread and a hint of herbs. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter. Palate is light bodied, somewhat slick texture and average carbonation. König Pilsener is style typical and pretty good for what it is.
