3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2007 Bottle (12/06 production). Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, bread), moderately hoppy (herbs, flowers), with a hint of honey. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Third rating over five years, and still a good pils (whereas a lot of Paulaner’s other products have gone downhill).

Not one of the best German pils but satisfying. Good balance - nice head retention.

looks too much like an american standard, but the flavor is suprisingly good.

Aroma is very similar to Warsteiner. Crisp, clean taste and mouthfeel leads the taster to expect something fuller. But instead, the flavor and body is relatively weak. Slight hoppiness and vague malt sweetness. In the end, it still maintains fresh, clean demeanor. Tastes like the magnificent Pilsner Urquell, except with half the flavor and body.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A wee bit better than some of the Dutch counterparts(Brand, Oranjeboom, Leeuw, Gulpener). Overpriced in the states!

Tried this one during a beer tasting event. I am going to drink one again and re-rate it.

Had a couple liters of this at the Addison Saucer. I already knew about the beer being spectacular but after a few liters I have a whole new respect for it

Mild traditional stink, light, clean, crisp and clean burning. If I were forced to drink pilsener for the rest of my life, please let it be this. Leave it to the amazing Bavarian Catholics to perfect the Pilsen style.

I don’t normally go for Pils - but this was surprisingly pleasant!
