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

Palme (3639) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 29, 2011
Tap @ Weihenstephaner Restaurant, Berlin. Pours a bright yellow golden body with a big two-fingersized white dense head. Nose is slightly sweet and mild. Reminds me of newly whipped cream with strawberries and some vanilla hints. Light bodied and lively carbonated. Tastes slightly hopy and citrus with a thin hopy metallic and lemon-peel aftertaste. Nice enough.

On tap. Very nice beer. Aromas of leaves, honey, a hint of butter, and also nuts. Taste is sweet, with bitter notes, and average length. Palate is oily, with a thin-to-medium body. Yellow, with a frothy head.

Pyobon (1260) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 27, 2011
Bottle. Poured slightly hazy golden with good dense white head. Fairly subtle pleasant hoppy aroma. Medium body with nice dense carbonation. Flavour starts with a hint of exotic fruit giving way to a crisp bitter finish. Overall a very nice beer (although I wonder how much this was influenced by it being a shockingly hot day...)

beardfear (87) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 2, 2011
500ml bottle into a Kwak glass. Pours a clear, pale straw colour with white head and mild carbonation. Mild aroma of hops, cereal and fresh bread. Crisp, clean taste; a touch sweeter and with less saaz hop bite than your average pilsener. A bit low on character but very refreshing.

beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, DENMARK - DEC 9, 2010
Bottle. Pours a clear yellow color with a frothy white head. Aroma is of grassy hops, cereal grains, sweet and biscuity malts. Flavor is fairly bitter with notes of grassy and citric hops. I also get the sweet and biscuity malts along with a metallic note and some of the cereal grains. The body is light with a crisp and slightly dry mouthfeel. Overall a solid Pilsener.

lusikka (7650) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 10, 2010
500 ml bottle. Rated @ 21.5.2010.
Pours a pale golden colour with a medium white head. Pale hops on the nose with medium maltiness. Very basic Pilsner taste with maltiness and mild hoppiness. Light/medium on the palate with a stinging mouthfeel and a slightly dry finish. Nothing special.

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2011 Weihenstephanerin pilsneri on kullanvärinen olut ja sen vaahto on selkeästi valkoinen. Tuoksultaan olut on ruohoinen, voinen ja hennon hunajainen. Maussa on leipäistä mallasta, voita ja hieman ruohoa. Jotain koivunlehtimäistäkin on läsnä.
