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

Tap at the brewery. From old notes. Quite malty, more than your usual pils, with a bit of sweetness to go along with the bitter hops and fruitiness. Good, also with a nice aroma, although a step behind the Kneitinger we had the previous day.

Clear golden with a small head. Nice lacing. The aroma is bready pils malt with some light floral hops. The flavor is similar. Nice clean pils.

50cl bottle at home. Clear golden with a full white soapy which didn’t last too long. Light to medium body with ditto carbonation and a buttery mouthfeel. Medium bitterness with some sweet tones. Malts, grain, grass and some honey. A great pilsner!

blipp (6709) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JUL 15, 2014
Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Grainy malty base, with light grassy notes and hints of sweetness. The finish could be cleaner. Not bad.

Zoret (133) - Badalona, SPAIN - JUL 11, 2014
Aromes de gra, mel, flor blanca, molla de pa... Sabors dolços inicials amb una lleugera cidesa i final herbaci.

Ernest (6597) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, cracker), lightly to moderately hoppy (herbs, flowers). Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. A clean, crisp, northern German style, a la Bitburger (but cleaner than Bitburger is today, i.e. no DMS here). Enjoyable but very by-the-numbers and ordinary.

Aroma e sabor de cereais. Amargor de uma pilsner no gole e no retrogosto. Bela cerveja para um fim de dia de trabalho duro.

Bamberg Jolly Day 3 26/01/2014. Bottle shared at the Weihenstephaner Am Dom in Freising. Aroma is nice lemony zest, some grassy hop and clean pils. Crystal clear pale yellow, with a frothy white head. Flavour is clean light pils malt, lemony grassy hop in the finish. Palate is crisp with light sweetness. Very enjoyable.

KeefOz (1098) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - MAY 30, 2014
BB 13.02.15. Poured a clear pale golden colour with a big (4+ finger) head that persisted and laced well. Carbonation moderate with large bubbles forming trails. Aroma of sweet malt, larger yeast but no obvious hops. Taste slightly malty sweetness but dominated by a sour bitterness. Light body. Crisp, light with a long mild bitterness on the finish. A nice pilsner.
