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°

felsenpils (118) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 27, 2013
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.

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

Atom (1489) - 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.

djoeye (1984) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 10, 2014
Pale clear strawy body, white fluffy deutschhh head, richhhhh lacing. Aroma; fresh grassy hops, juicy wort, caramel malts, faint sweet lemon. Taste; fresh grassy hops, bread, juicy fruity malts, some apple, some citrus. Finishes surprisingly juicy for a pilsener. Normal body and carbonation. Overall good pilsener, also without dinner.

ContemplateBeer (1608) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 6, 2014
Aroma: Light sweet grains with a lemon grass hop presence that leans towards grass. Malts maybe a little sweeter than you’d want a Pils to be. Appearance: Pale gold pour with a foamy white head that settles into a skin. Flavor: When cold, a solid balance up front with grass and lightly sweet malts; there’s a rubbery quality that develops mid-palate, which becomes increasingly more unpleasant as the beer warms. The finish is slightly bitter lemon. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, slightly bitter finish. Overall: Pretty disappointed in this; was purported to be a pretty fresh batch, but there was just something off here. Can’t recommend this to anyone. 16 oz. can.

artmcd8 (1847) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2014
Decided to branch out and try some crappy beer from over seas. Clear pale yellow pour with a slight white head. Decent lacing. Aroma is of grape skins. Taste is slightly metallic and slightly bitter. Medium high carb. Lighter body.

50cl Bottle brought from Austria, thanks dad! Clear golden colour, white head. Aroma of light-bready malts, grass, light herbal. Flavour is light to medium sweet, malty, light bready, grassy bitter finish with light herbal notes. Light-bodied. OK Pils.

Wenn Saaz Hopfen was Besonderes sein soll, dann ist dieses Piwo sicher nicht die beste Werbung fuer. Duenn und waessrig mit einer milden Malznote und ordentlich Perlung. Zum Runterspuelen einer Mahlzeit durchaus geeignet.
