3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Pale greenish-golden coloured, slightly hazy; deceptively strong sweetish-aromatic-hoppy nose; mild, but distinctive bitter-sweet flavour, soft MF; lingering, soft, sweet-malty and finish with a good injection of noble hops. A very good Pilsener..........

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
The aroma is a bit yeasty and lightly malty. Notes of citrus, honey and apple.
Moderately malty and lightly sweet up front. A touch tart, sweet and bitter on the backside. Medium-bodied with a slightly oily, but mostly watery mouthfeel. Fizzy carbonation. Lengthy, mostly dry and grassy finish. Drank the beer at about 65 degrees. Probably about 10 to 15 degrees too warm. At proper temperature, the finish is probably much more crisp and clean. Just a guess. Not a pils fan, even in the heat of Summer. Fairly pleasant drinking... which is as far as the style allows me to go.
This crystal clear, straw colored beer has a large frothy white head that is mostly diminishing. Leaves a great lacing.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml bottle (BeerAngel.de)
Pale gold, small head. Light fruity citrussy aroma. Crisp carbonation, refreshing palate, short of watery. Taste a touch papery, not as sweet or fruity as the aroma would imply. Fairly drinkable though.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle, as Marke Weltenburger Pils) Clear, pale golden colour with a moderate foamy blond head. Herbal, slightly grassy hop aroma with a soft grainy malty background. Medium-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a crispy carbonation. Grainy and herbal hoppy taste on a well-balanced level; finishes with a rather mild bitterness but also with aromatic herbal and slightly floral hops. Well-done Pils, brewed in Regensburg.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ home picked up @ Wilburís Fort Collins. Iíve never seen Weltenburger in Fort Collins but the bottles that have shown up in Denver were less than satisfactory. I think Iíve had this one time and that was at Kelheim. Pours a fairly clear golden appearance with a touch of haze and a nice white head. Big herbal pils, cracker malty, fairly dry, lightly mineralic aroma. A touch sweet but fairly dry, pils malty, straw, moderately herbal hoppy flavor. Easy drinking and one of the freshest German Pils Iíve had in Colorado in quite a while. May have to pick up a couple of more.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 mL bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear pale yellow color with a very faint haziness. Large head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of pale bready malts, faint grassy hops, biscuity notes and a faint caramel sweetness in the finish. The taste is bready malts, caramel, raisin and faint grassy hops. Medium bodied.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (235C1202). Pours with a pale yellow golden hue, great clarity. Fluffy white head that lasts and leaves good lace. Aromas are of bready, grainy, pilsner malt. Nice malty richness, low DMS notes, some what strong mineral character. Quite a bit of hop on the nose. Seems pretty fresh. Herbal, grassy, noble character. Smells pretty solid. Malt seems to be the slightly dominant aroma. Clean yeast wise. Flavors are bready, malty. Light metallic note. A very dry and strong bitterness. Lightly grassy. Some lingering pils malt hay like qualities. Crisp. Very clean. Quite fresh. Bitterness is slightly out of balance as far as drinkability is concerned. Good malt though. Lively bubbles, crisp, clean, dry. Light bodied. Good and remarkably fresh tasting.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2013 500ml bottles, rating adjusted June 2013.
Clear gold with a quick white head.
Sharp, semi-sweet dry cracker malt.
Some saaz hop resemblance.
Not a lot of hop juiciness.
Definitely shows the pellets.
Mild laundry detergent / soap notes.
Medium-light body; low sweetness; medium bitterness.
Texture too coarse and grainy for me.
Still one of the German pilsners in rotation for me at home in Colorado, if I can find fresh bottles that havenít seen much light.
