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

Strong hoppy pasteurized lager aroma. Really fine balance of malt n hops. Fantastic German pils, easily one of the best Ive had yet. Prefer the others from Weihenstephan but have to hand it to them this is a great example of the style.

0,5l bottle from Alko. Pours clear golden colour with small head. Aroma of malts, floral notes, grass, slight fruitiness and sweetness. Some bitterness, mediumish body, not much hoppiness even for a Pils.

Monchito_IPA (193) - SPAIN - SEP 9, 2016
Una rica pilsner que tampoco tiene nada de especial, un poco más dulce/maltosa al inicio que otras y quizás menos seca que otras pilsner de referencia.

damzz (464) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 26, 2016
Pours a clear light yellow with a white head that leaves lacing. Nose is slight malt. Taste is malt balanced with hops leaving slight bitter aftertaste. Body is medium. 11.2 oz bottle packaged on 4/26/16 More cans! Weihenstephaner, there is nothing sacred about glass.

Slightly cloudy golden color. Lots of cereal notes in the nose with modest hop notes. The mouth has a modest sweetness, very clean and moderately hopped. Dry slightly bitter finish. Refreshing and nice
