Enjoyment of first-rate beer with a pleasant hoppy character. Straw-colored and warm amber glow, pleasantly sparkling with a dry body. Using the aromatic hops from the MŁhlviertel region, it entices you with a bouquet of fresh hops and a distinctive bitter finish. 11.4į

Draught @ beerbistro: Pours a very pale gold with an initially decent head that limps off into a light lacing. Aroma is seemingly non-existent with only a slight hint of hops to my nose. Flavour is.. well, boring to be honest. Nothing to separate it from any other german pilsener with elements of malts and saaz hops. Overly picky on my part, perhaps, but I just find these beers to be so generic and bland. Probably didnít help that I had it with three others.

From a 1 pt. 1 oz. euro brown bottle with a coded freshness date at the center bottom of back label. Poured a clear pale golden with a nice foamy white head that settled into a thin sudsy lacing. Aromas of spicy, herbal and grassy hops with a backing sweet pilsener malts. Good carbonation and a crisp, dry, creamy smooth medium bodied mouthfeel. A pleasant pilsener taste, sweet, sugary pilsener malts with a touch of grain and dry biscuits, spicy, lightly peppery, herbal hoppiness, just enough soft bitterness to match the dry crispiness from the malts, a little grassiness starts to show up towards the end of the taste and a dry biscuity, slight cereal grainy finish with a hint of grassiness lingering in the palate. A really decent tasting pils from Stiegl, this is the third lager Iíve tried from Stiegl and, so far, all have been above average, tasty and balanced.

Hereís what a pilsner should taste like. Terrific flavor - bright and fresh. With a depth so many American Pilsnerís are lacking. Full flavored without the hoppiness of a micro-brew pilsner. Great with burgers or steaks - casual or upscale.

Nothing special about this Austrian Oils except that you can enjoy it at the top of the Salzburg fortress overlooking the ALPS! Golden color with a small head. Crisp, clear and relatively hoppy. A typical Eurpoean mass produced Pils.

Canned. Gold blond coloured with a small white head and very light carbonation. Sweet hoppy aroma, very light body somewhat wattery. Finish is sweet and light bitter. An average pilsener.

Pale yellow, thick white head. Mostly a malt aroma, without much of a hint of hops. Light body, with a bit of a corn taste. More refreshing than I anticipated, given the garish can.

NosirIwont (2159) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2006
Bottle. Pours light yellow with a slight haziness. Head is pure white. Sweetish aroma with dryish hop and hay notes. Flavour is sweetish and bitter with some hops and a sharp note of something undefineable which feels slightly cloying. Finish is dryish and has slight notes of perfume and flowers. 11-07-06.

Pours a very pale gold (as pale as Bud!) almost clear. White frothy head that recedes; has a very corny aroma to the exclusion of everything else. Taste is crisp, clean, refreshing and slightly hoppy. All in all, very uninspiring. A standard Euro pils.

Hmm. We really overvalue these Euro pilseners, donít we? Thereís nothing much to this but light grass and citrus taste, and itís not particularly well done at that. Cool glass, I guess.

(500 ml bottle: $2.99 at Hollingshead Deli in Orange, CA) Thereís no telling how old this bottle is (what does "L00016" mean anyway?), but I suspect some things sit on the shelf at Hollingshead for a long, long time, and the cardboard in this beer is telling me this bottle did some sitting. Iíll try to overlook the mild cardboard flavor with this beer and focus instead on the crisp, bitter, lemony, spicy hops that quickly sends the cardboard apackiní moments after each sip. Unfortunately, I just donít think Iím liking how the hops taste in this beer. Mild breadiness in the finish is also a bit disappointing from what should be a clean pilsener. Body is light but not watery, with solid carbonation. Pale golden in color with a very slight haze. The white head rises to about an inch on the pour before fading to a wide ring. A few small patches of lace remain on the glass. Despite a few flaws, this beer still could have been decent had I liked the hop flavor, so Iím not sure if Iíd enjoy this more if it were a fresher sample.
