3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Pours a deep golden color with a very nice fluffy white head. The aroma is pretty mild, but there are some nice bitter/floral hop notes in there. The flavor is classic German pils - a very clean, very smooth floral hop presides over a solid malt backbone before fading off into a very dry, very refreshing finish. The mouthfeel is creamy yet light, supporting the flavor very nicely. Great pilsener.

3.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle: Having read other reviewers assessments of this beer I wasn’t expecting much. However, I found it to be one of, if not the best Pilsners that I have ever tasted.
It was a medium straw colour; Zero initial aroma, but an extremely clean, melanoidin flavour. Chalky finish. Hops were present, but not altogether bitter for a German-made Pils. I could drink this stuff all day.

Almost no aroma or taste at all. When warmed up there’s a slight hint of sweetness, maybe honey.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Shocked at the low ratings. Some people just don’t get Bavarian beers I guess. Tried this at the Weihenstephan braustubl in Freising, a gorgeous small town near the Munich airport. Came highly recommended and I forewent trying some of the other brews to sample what I was expecting to be just an average pils. This is not your average pils. Unflitered, and has a characteristic grainy and hoppy flavor. This is a wonderful, beautiful example of the style.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle and in the lager mood...sparkling gold bubbly body with thick, creamy head--near-perfect Brussels lace...crisp, light/medium cereal malts present...soft texture, light body--a tongue-to-throat swiftness...a bit weak and thin...extremely weak and fleeting in taste... I kept waiting for what the commercial description calls "character"...a yeasty finish...pleasant summer drinking but lacks a big pilsner taste...since 1040? tradition puts the overall where it is, hemming at the average while the promise of its beginning is unfulfilled.....

comming from Weihenstephaner I was dissapointed with this beer, I expected more. I think it has an extra bite compared to other pilsners flavor, but I don’t really like the extra bite.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle, a clear gold with a foamy white head. A clean aroma of grassy hops with a touch of honey for me. A clean and crisp palate, a bit over-carbonated. The flavour is very grassy. The finish was then dry and astringent.
