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

ThisWangsChung (826) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Reviewed 12/23/2012. 11.2 oz bottle into a pilsner glass. A: Pours a medium straw color with great clarity. The head is a two finger white color with nice retention. The head retains more strongly away from the glass, creating a ’floater’...usually a sign of a hoppy beer. Intrigued! S: Very well hopped, which I always like. Tons of grassy, zesty noble hops overpower - in a good way - the pale malts. T: Light malt sweetness gives way to pure grassy hop goodness. Simple, but it works here. The only real complaint I have is that the finish isn’t quite as balanced as I like. As such, it’s a bit less drinkable than it could be. Having said that, it grows on me. M: The carbonation grants this a coarse, tingly sensation on the palate. It’s not entirely bone dry on the finish, either. If anything, it’s more a pils to savor, rather than one to chug. O: I feel that pilsners - when they’re done well - provide a great example of simple refreshment in lieu of water. This is one I feel that stacks up nicely. It strikes a middle ground between the intensity of Prima Pils and the delicacy of Pilsner Urquell.

Abijen (2338) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - APR 28, 2016
Goud helder bier met een goede witte schuim kraag. Ruikt hop, fruitig. Iets te fruitig. Smaakt als een pilsner, muf, hop.

Classic pils - clean and crisp, slight bread and perfume in the nose. Slightly sweet and ever so slightly bitter flavor.

DavidAust (167) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 14, 2016
500ml bottle. Straw gold. Well carbonated, good crisp clean mouthfeel and palate. Good for the style - just not my favourite style. But for a hot day or BBQ with mild seafoods - all good.

weihenweizen (2832) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - FEB 24, 2016
On tap at P&P Charleston. Clear golden with small white head. Aroma is light malt, light body, low carbonation, and good small-bubble lacing. Taste is light malt and light soapy hops. Pretty bland.

Grzesiek79 (3775) - Radom, POLAND - FEB 9, 2016
Many thanks for this beer to kevnic2008. piwo swietnie wygladajace ladna zlocista barwa piana trwala i puszysta. Mnostwo babelkow. Zapach kukurydzy słodkiej, jabłka i trawy cytrynowej. Smak lekki orzezwiajacy lekko slodowy i lekko gorzki. Ogolnie jest sporo lepiej niż przy ostatnim piwie od Weihenstephan po którym się bardzo rozczarowałem. Klasyczny i jakościowy Pilsner

Not exactly a great beer for some grand analysis but I would definitely drink this at the beach happily. Drinkability is very high. Straw gold color with not much of a head. Lively carbonation with streaming bubbles buzzing up towards the top rather nicely. Light bodied with a slightly bready aroma that doesn’t do much. The malt imparts a gentle sweetness to it that the hops can’t overcome in bitterness. The aftertaste is very clean with seemingly low bitterness.

Douberd (4300) - 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.

HuskerTan (1420) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - DEC 7, 2015
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.
