a pilsner with good flavor. The germans know pilsners and this is no exception. An excellent thirst quencher.

I am not a fan of pilsner, but I drank Paulaner Pils for a whole evening and I think this was because it avoids the dry, musty taste we (in Britain) might associate with pilsners like Holsten Pils and Becks.

Not terrible, but more like an IPA than a pilsner to me. Poured nice color with decent carbonation. Head evaporated rather quickly, and lacing was almost non-existant. I would not seek this one out again, but would not turn it down if offered either. A bit over-rated and over-priced.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Roasty toasty, for a pils. Pillowy, meringue-like stark white head. Vapid, sickly straw-yellow color. Fortunately, it tastes much better than it looks. Piney, spicy aroma with a hint of cedar also. A bit sweetish at the end, but a solid malt flavor.

A good pilsner. Rather heavy body for a light-colored lager. Medium carb with classic tall head. Hops come through dry and bitter.

Not a bad little beer. Sort of a light version of an American pilsner such as Victory Prima, and smaller mouth feel and less malt than I remember from Urquel draft years ago. Best part occurred before I even tasted the beer. Good nose, and a great classic yellow beer with a huge white head. Good bitter finish.

This was yummy, and just the right amount of bitterness and bite. Extremely cold clean and crisp. A little bit too light overall, I would have enjoyed it more had it been more full bodied, but overall very enjoyable.

Not much head, but more than I've found in most Pilsners; nice crisp taste, but just a little too bitter for me.

This is indeed a very classic pilsener. It is bitter and perfectly balanced with hops and malts. Quite dry and well-balanced.

Very pale yellow color topped by a thick white creamy head with good lace. Slightly sweet yet skunky aroma with a slight hoppiness. Bitter hoppy flavor with a slight woodiness and a bitter finish. dry and light bodied.
