COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Slightly bitter, mild, with a fragrance of hops - our pilsner is a cut above the ordinary. A beer with character.

TheDog (537) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 30, 2010
On tap at Die Kleine Bierstube Århus. Golden clear colour with nice white head. Aroma and taste of hops, grain, grass and a bit citrus. Bitter but pleasant finish. One of the best german pilsners.

hawthorne00 (2630) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 24, 2010
Yellow-gold, an inch of white head. Grass and grain aroma. Moderate sweetness with decent but plain bitterness. Slight sourness gives it a little character. Solid but not terribly interesting.

Bottle 500ml. @ home.
Clear light to medium yellow color with a average to large, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, white to off-white head. Aroma is light to moderate malty, grain, hay - straw, light bread. Flavor is moderate sweet and light to moderate bitter with a average duration. Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is soft. [20091223]

Jade (417) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 28, 2010
Nice and refreshing, not overly special. Pours a yellowy clear colour. Lovely white head that dissipates quite quickly. Highly hopped aroma, although not overwhelming. Refreshing taste, perhaps a little watery. Leaves a slight bitter after taste. Overall, it is a pleasant beer that I would drink again.

beerfest5 (1197) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 3, 2010
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.

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

CH-303 (1533) - Fribourg, SWITZERLAND - SEP 8, 2009
Appearance: Clear yellow, bubbles. Some white head. Aroma: Hops and malt, quite standard. Taste: Nice hops and malt. Smooth. Good bitterness. Info: 330ml bottle, 8/9-2009, 206/300

Davros (2119) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 30, 2009
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.
