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

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 17, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2010 A clean, bready pilsner with a champagne-like malt-carbonation-bitterness balance. A firmer hop character would make this legendary.

Bubbling, clear, straw hue underneath a thick, white meringue. Honey, baguette and muskmelon aromatics combine sweetly. Pleasantly dry with a crisp acidity and softly prickling bitterness. Medium-light body, slick texture and buzzing carbonation. 50 cl bottle, best before 13.04.2011.

shrubber85 (8772) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAY 16, 2010
Tap. Creamy malt and grassy hops aroma. Clear golden yellow color with nice head. Moderately bitter grass hops with light creamy malt finish. Unique hop forward German Pils.

Skinnyviking (7595) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 6, 2010
Draught. High creamy lasting white head. Clear yellow body. Good barley malt aroma. Highly carbonated fairly bitter barley malt flavor with a nice dry note. Long aftertaste.

jonno (2345) - JAPAN - APR 10, 2010
Not as crisp and hoppy as I was hoping for. Premium euro lager with not much going on. Considering the rest of the range from weihen this was a let down. Give me a ever anyway.

Habanero (3084) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - APR 10, 2010
Cask. Golden, clear body with a nice, creamy white head. Nose of light malt and hops. Flavour with hops, grass and notes of soft malt and citrus. Medium to light bodied. Pleasant mild, bitter finish. Crisp but not the best Weihenstephaner.

TheDog (555) - 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 (2731) - 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.

fonefan (38081) - VestJylland, DENMARK - FEB 3, 2010
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 (419) - 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.
