I thought at first that this was out of date. With a date stamp of 0804 it should be ok. Cardboard and dusty nose with a definite off taste of sour malt. A shame. I promise to re-rate when I get a fresh one.

[on tap - mcmenamins] Beautiful clear as a diamond light golden color. One of the clearest beers I've seen. Aroma is nice and hoppy, with none of the butter aromas some other Pils's go to market with. Flavor is crisp and dry and finishes with a nice noble hop bite. Good malt body. A very well done traditional German Pils.

Bottle. Average size, white head; clear yellow colour. Medium hop aroma, herbal, light malt aroma. Initial sweet and light bitter, finish more bitter. Light to medium body. Good hoppy taste.

Cool pilsner look with hardly any aroma, but a refreshing yet not that dry flavour. Overall a good lager/pilsner.

Those Paulaner dudes should really stick to making special brews. This pilsener is average at most.

Yellow color, dark for a pils though. Average pils, not more than that. Germans don't know pilsners btw, better check czech and/or polish brews.

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.
