Onionkid (376) - Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Bottle. Grassy and hoppy aroma. The taste is crisp and clean. Some metallic taste in there, along with a slight bit of hops and a bit of a bad aftertaste. The aroma isn’t as "smelly" as some are saying with this bottle. Overall pretty solid for a Pilsner, crisp and light enough to be a session beer. 4.9% abv.

Bierdimpfe (179) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 2, 2016
Hazy golden color with floating particles. White foamy 3 finger head lasting around 5 minutes. Strong legs with subtle activity. Faint aromas and flavors of grains with floral and herbal spices. Sharp and crisp taste of pleasant bitterness. Light slick body with some nice carbonation. Well intensified but short finish, ending with slightly dry bitter mouth coating. Overall : Average pilsener that is slightly too watery and lacking in flavors.

Hidden gems at the beer store are some of the best things about being a beer connoisseur. I picked up a can of Stiegl Pils because it was fairly cheap and I just wanted something to review. Little did I know that it would be a great example of the pilsner style.

I poured a 500ml can into a tulip glass. It seems to have been bottled in either August or November of 2015 and cost $3.79 ($0.21 per ounce).

Appearance: Beautiful white gold hue with total clarity. Carbonation visible at first. Pours to a very large, white, foamy head which retains and laces wonderfully.

Smell: Plenty of pilsner malt sweetness with a hint of graham cracker. A faint trace of lemon, too.

Taste: A good pilsner doesn’t have to be a massive bouillabaisse of flavors; simple pilsner malt and some Noble hop character is really all you need and this is a great example of that. Lightly bready with a mild sweetness up front, which is nice. Some spicy hop zestiness on the finish along with just a notion of [graham] cracker in the aftertaste. There seems to be some lemonpeel lurking in the background as well. It’s not ridiculously delicious, but it certainly is impressive and enjoyable to say the least.

Drinkability: I’m quite surprised that Stiegl Pils drinks this well since it’s rather light at only 4.9% ABV. I didn’t expect it to hold up this well (since imports like this tend to sit on shelves forever). The body seems a little beefier than you’d expect for a pilsner. Crisp to be sure, but in no way watery or overtly light-bodied. Refreshing while in the mouth with just a bit of a bitterness in the aftertaste. That it comes in cans makes it ideal for warm weather situations and for on-the-go.

RATING: 9/10
