Bottle. Pale beer with a steady white head. The aroma is yeasty and malty and the flavour is malty, yeasty and dry. Overall a pleasant beer.

Hopfen Konig Pils pours to a very bright, pale golden color with a thick white head, and a good bit of carbonation. The clarity on this beer is beautiful, you can literally see right though this beer. The nose on this beer is fantastic. Very fragrant, zesty, herby/grassy hop aromas flood the nose. The palate is crisp and clean with good pilnser malt flavors on the tongue. The body on this beer is very smooth and round, making for a very drinkable beer. Hopfen Konig Pils finishes with good pilsner malt flavor up front, then finishes with a wonderful, snappy, herby/grassy hop bite that slightly lingers. This is a well done example of German Pils from one of Austria’s best breweries. It has a wonderful crisp and clean malt palate, and of course those signature Saaz hop notes in aroma, flavor, and bitterness. This beer would make a wonderful aperitif beer to get the appetite going, and would pair well with sea food or foul dishes. I would match this beer with a nice grilled piece of fish with lemon pepper butter.

Marko (4144) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 23, 2005
This poured a pale pee yellow colour, but with a beautiful medium/big thick white head that went away slowly leaving tons of beautiful lacing. Hoppy aroma with some honeyish malt and skunk (green bottle...). The taste is a bit of a letdown then. Hoppy, yes, with a bit of that malt, but all in all, metallic. Ok hoppy aftertaste. This would be quite a nice little pils if not for that metallic feeling. A bit basic, but far from bad.

oh6gdx (21752) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 14, 2005
Bottled. Yellow colour, mediumsized white head. Hops and weak vegetables in aroma. Flavour is also mainly hoppy and grown in the finish. Hoppy hayish aftertaste with some sweetish hints. Wellbalanced, and quite nice. Indeed name is ok compared to product.

Golden color, decent white head. Dry woody nose. Saaz hoppy flavor, long bitterish aftertaste. Good Urquell-copy without diacetyl touch.

A decent pilsener, one that I was pleasantly surprised to find sitting in my local bottle shop. One would normally not find a pilsener at this time of year ( I would expect), but this’ll do! Pours light and golden, lot’s of bubbles. Very cheery! Flavor is sweet, yet somewhat grassy, overall a pleasant surprise.

Roli (405) - laval, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 16, 2005
Pale Blonde colors. Skunky smell at first. It had a little something that I like. Sweet and refreshing. Very smooth and balanced finish. Interesting pils.

rederic (3200) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 10, 2005
Pale yellow hue, with a frothy white head, at the opening of the green bottle, the skunky smell was emerging, with a floral hops, pale malt aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a sweet crisp pale malt, maltiness accent leading towards a little hop bitterness finish.

sayravai (4677) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 7, 2005
(Bottled) Pale golden color with a smallish, quite firm head with some lace. Smoothly grassy-hoppy, a bit buttery aroma with toffee notes. Moderately malty but dry, softly buttery-toffeeish-hoppy flavor. Slight presence of alcohol can be felt, but not in a very bad way. Medium-bodied, quite crisp palate with balanced carbonation. Classy and very balanced. A quality pils, but lacks that something special to make it exciting or even interesting. Well, maybe that’s not even the purpose here - it will most certainly please 99% of the population.
