UPDATED: FEB 21, 2011 500ml can. A very good pilsener, very smooth mouthfeel and excellent taste of fresh lemony, springy hops, Der Koenig der Biere? Maybe not, but it beats the shit out of Budweiser. ____________________________ 12 oz bottle, I’ve also had this from a can and it was pretty good. It pours a deep gold with a nice big white head. One of the better smelling pilseners, this is the definition of a balanced traditional pilsener in the nose. It is one of the more flavorful pilseners, it is nicely balanced, not the best flavor, but good. It’s a great pilsener, maybe better out of the can too which is rare.

Luvystypotables (1523) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - JUN 28, 2016
Nothing special, nothing wrong, aroma of grain and grass, pours a clear golden color with a foamy white head. Medium body, light bitter taste with hints of grain and grass with a bitter finish. Typical of the style and well worth drinking.

The Köpi or König Pilsener is a straight up no nonscense Pils. It does exactly what it says on the tin. It is bitter it is herbal, it takes 7-8 minutes to pour properly. A good but not excellent beer.

En billig tysk pilsner. Den har en skarp humlet smag, der til at starte med virker noget i overkanten, men da de oftes kommer i halve liter, så vender man sig hurtigt til det. Den bliver faktisk helt behagelig og rund, uden den syrlighed som nogle billige pilsnere har.

phfyysik (524) - Tartu, ESTONIA - APR 28, 2016
Pours golden with white head. Aroma is malts, hay, grain, some fruits. Taste is quite same. In the end some hops and after taste is again sweet and oily. Nice, but quite average beer.

floydslip (326) - Washington DC, USA - APR 25, 2016
Light straw colored beer with a bright white head. Nose of lemon, cereal grain, and slightly musky hops. Flavor is fairly typical for the style with a slight grainy sweetness initially followed by a mouth coating bitterness, although it’s not particularly strong. Refreshing and drinkable, but nothing noteworthy.
