on tap @ the bodega, cork. to be honest, after the first few sips, i just gulped this one down to try the Rebel Red, pretty bland, typical pilsener, no real flavor or taste, grass, wheat, etc. just bla

500ml Bottle @ Home
The Weihenstephaner Pilsner is a decent brew, certainly not the best pilsner, and leagues above other so-called ’pilsners’ I have tried. The appearance is a bit lacking, a clear yellow (a bit off, perhaps) with a fluffy white head that looks great at first but soon recedes to nothing. Typical pilsner aroma and flavour, nothing really outstanding, remarkable or bad. A bit too watery. Nice finish. I would buy it again, but I’m in no hurry.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle, poured into Weihenstephan wheat glass, big fluffy head, damn this looks good, pity the rest of it is just ok. If you can imagine the ultimate middle of the road German Pilsener, then this would not be to far off it. All the normal sweet grain & noble hop aroma. Well balanced sweet/bitter flavour, only not as pleasant as i hoped. Appropriate carbonation, though slightly watery. All in all not bad, but wont revisit

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Crystal clear pale gold pour, small head.
Grainy and biscuity malt aroma. Next to no hops. Off-putting cardboard.
Exactly the same flavours, with a harsh unpleasant bitterness.
Carbonation too high, too watery.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
The bottle looks really good, the beer in the glass also. Starts hoppy and fresh, the finish is a little bit more moldy, modest sourish. A bit unbalanced. Not bad, but also not really good!
