Golden-yellow and bright, with 32 bitter units and quite hoppy compared to most of the other Pilsners our Weihenstephaner Pilsner comes up with a distinctive aroma of hops with a pleasant bitterness. This combination provides a balanced mix and guarantees great enjoyment. Brewed according to our centuries-old brewing tradition on the Weihenstephan hill.

humpah (143) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - SEP 10, 2016
0,5l bottle from Alko. Pours clear golden colour with small head. Aroma of malts, floral notes, grass, slight fruitiness and sweetness. Some bitterness, mediumish body, not much hoppiness even for a Pils.

Monchito_IPA (196) - SPAIN - SEP 9, 2016
Una rica pilsner que tampoco tiene nada de especial, un poco más dulce/maltosa al inicio que otras y quizás menos seca que otras pilsner de referencia.

Pours a clear light yellow with a white head that leaves lacing. Nose is slight malt. Taste is malt balanced with hops leaving slight bitter aftertaste. Body is medium. 11.2 oz bottle packaged on 4/26/16 More cans! Weihenstephaner, there is nothing sacred about glass.

Slightly cloudy golden color. Lots of cereal notes in the nose with modest hop notes. The mouth has a modest sweetness, very clean and moderately hopped. Dry slightly bitter finish. Refreshing and nice

Bottle. If you love Pilsner you will love this beer. Me, not so much. Clear gold color with a large head. Bitter grains in both aroma and taste.

DraftDodger (1117) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2016
Copenhagen 6/6 2016. 50 cl bottle from Meny. Some lions, a shield and a crown on the label to signal that we are in good old knightly Germany. Pours clear yellow with white head. Settles as thin layer of foam. Moderate lacing. Aroma is quite sharp and a little bit sulfurous with a tinge of smelly socks and moldy gym bag. Light carbonation and watery palate. Flavor is way more balanced than the aroma. Sweet malts followed by nice medium bitterness which lingers in the aftertaste. It does not look or smell very good - but it does taste quite ok. Just like boiled cabbage.
