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

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.

Bottle at home. Aroma of grainy malt, hay, grass, some fruity notes, hint of hops. Flavour is slightly sweet with an above moderate bitter finish. Body is light. Fairly decent Pilsener with a good bitterness.

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 (353) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - OCT 18, 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 (10001) - 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.

JaKeAFC (801) - ITALY - SEP 23, 2015
33cl bottle from the brewery outlet. Clear yellow color, thick creamy bright white head, good lacing. Quiet smell. Aroma is malty, grainy, biscuit with light hoppiness, very lagery. Flattish taste, bit sweet body, light bitterness in the finish, can feel alcohol already. Slick texture, soft carbonation, light body, decent finish. Solid lager but not really pungent or hoppy as usually german pilseners are, but its good.
