djoeye (3835) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 30, 2015
Look; modest off white head and very pale yellow golden body. Aroma; pale malts, spices, dusty hops. Taste; hops, good pilsner malts, spices, dark bread, wort, leading to a fruity fresh spicy finish. Smooth texture and normal to soft carbonation. Overall impression very good served chilled. [50cl brown bottle 4.9%abv BB09-10-2015 T@Ferie2015]

UPDATED: JUL 23, 2015 Half liter bottle. This was a hard beer to find. I had to special order it from the distributor and it cost me $5 a bottle! Mahr´s Bräu is a family owned brewery in Bamberg, Germany and on their website, they claim to make traditional Franconian beers, not mass produced industrial beers. Let´s find out. The beer pours a clear golden yellow with a dense white head. The aroma is malt sweetness with just a touch of hop aroma. The flavor is very clean and balanced between malt sweetness and hop bitterness and a little bit of hop aroma. The original gravity is a bit low at 11.8°P. I like this beer and it is way better than the Pilseners that the big German breweries like Warsteiner and Krombacher produce. Nevertheless, I see room for improvement here. Bump up the original gravity and the IBU´s, add a late hop addition for more hop aroma and this beer would be perfect. Mahr´s Bräu Pilsner is very good, but I grew up in Germany and the Pilseners back in the 80s were still a lot better than this.

Spina @ greenriver. Chiara limpida con schiuma non troppo persistente. Bell'attacco di malto, poi erbe e amaro bel finale molto lungo

@Santo Bevitore Pub. Pretty much a standard pilsener, I couldn’t appreciate it really. Light, malty and biscuity, maybe a bit of dust in the taste.

Ottima pils tedesca, rinfrescante e con tutti gli attributi giusti tra dolcezza del malto e amarezza del luppolo.
