Golden-yellow and bright, with 32 bitter units and quite hoppy compared to most of the other Pilsners our Weihenstephaner Pilsner comes up with a distinctive aroma of hops with a pleasant bitterness. This combination provides a balanced mix and guarantees great enjoyment. Brewed according to our centuries-old brewing tradition on the Weihenstephan hill.

Douberd (4917) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2016
(Weihenstephaner Pilsner) Bottle 500 ml at home as Weihenstephaner Pils, served into a lager glass, ABV 5.1% Golden yellow colour on the body, clear, with lazy activity in it and a good sized but a bit thin white head sitting on top. Good retention. Aroma of malts and hay, taste follows but more clean, some grass in there too, with light bitter finish. Medium thin body, good carbonation. Nice thirst quencher and high drinkability.

Bottle. A- Corn, grains, lemon, subtle banana. A- Yellow color, clear liquid, white head. T- Grains, corn, faint citrus. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, balanced finish. O- Better than a lot of pilsners I’ve had. I like the lemon and soft banana on the nose. Which it would translate into the taste more but overall this is nice.

0,5 l NRW-Flasche aus der Brauerei Weihenstephan. Klares, hellgoldenes Pils mit einer wunderschönen Schaumkrone. Riecht hopfig, leicht würzig. Im Antrunk süß, Weizenaroma, dann nur leicht bitter. Herb-würziger Nachgeschmack. Könnte ruhig etwas bitterer sein.

A footed Pilsner glass full of Weihenstephaner’s Pils is a lovely sight. Effervescence and the snowy head make it a beer to lust over. In the aroma, you get cereal grains and earthy hops - not much, but par for the course with the style. Flavor follows the same suit yet with a more pronounced bitterness than most Pilsners. The lively appearance might make you think this beer will be spritzy. In fact, it’s extremely smooth and light-bodied. This is one you’ll polish off in no time. Good thing too since Pilsners get kinda shitty when they’re warm. Luckily, this one never got the chance to change temperature. I drank it too fast.

ciocanelu (1434) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - OCT 18, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 Clear golden color with white head. Light bready malts and some earthy hops in the aroma. Very balanced taste. You get a bit of malt and also some hops but nothing stands out. Body is quite soft for a pilsener. Not really my style of beer.

Dogbrick (11641) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 15, 2015
Bottle at Winking Lizard. Clear golden color with a medium white head that diminishes steadily to an outer ring. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of herbal hops, malt and fruit. Light-bodied with a mildly spiced hops character and notes of biscuit malt and fruit. The finish is mildly bitter with a hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.
