COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 Mühlviertel region, it entices you with a bouquet of fresh hops and a distinctive bitter finish. 11.4°

UPDATED: DEC 19, 2014 Very nice Pils. Light golden color, good head retention, nice bitter hops flavor. Just a touch of aromatic hops from a very late hop addition, probably in the whirlpool, but certainly not dry hopped later on. This is one of the few Pilseners made outside of Germany which really stands up well in the style. More character and hop taste than mainstream German PIlseners like Warsteiner, Beck´s and König. The only problem is that it is not well known outside of Austria and tends to stay on the shelf a long time. So finding a fresh bottle or half-liter can may be a problem.

4/18/2015 (bottle): Grainy, grassy, crisp, and clean. Classic Austrian Pils. This definitely takes me back to my three months spent in Austria in late 2000. I still enjoy this beer quite a bit, but slightly prefer the Stiegl Goldbräu.

A real Austrian Pilsner (Pilsener?). This is getting very close to the original source, and I like it.

kaser (3791) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 8, 2015
This is getting a better rating due to the fact I am drinking it on a mountain skiing in 55 degree weather. 16oz can at Viking yurt in park city. Malty and crappy.

loubar (151) - Los Gatos, California, USA - FEB 23, 2015
16.9 oz can from Whole Foods. Pale golden yellow with a foamy white head. Taste of sweet cereal grains and freshly baked white bread up front. Floral hoppiness along with a grassy backbone takes over. The carbonation is lively. The body is light with a dry finish. The flavor is well balanced, creamy yet crisp and clean. An exemplary pilsener.

Sweet, grainy malt, and floral aroma. Similar flavor -- with more sweetness, and a sweeter aftertaste.

Atom (1677) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 17, 2014
Pint can pours a clear pale straw/yellow with a very large foamy white head. Aroma of a nice dry pils yeast and malt with spicy grassy hops. Taste of empty boring flat caramel malt with faint hops and bitterness on the finish. Really disappointed in the taste. But the aroma is almost exactly what I look for in a nice Pilsener.
