adnielsen (10490) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 11, 2013
Bottle @ home picked up @ Wilbur’s Fort Collins. I’ve never seen Weltenburger in Fort Collins but the bottles that have shown up in Denver were less than satisfactory. I think I’ve 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 I’ve had in Colorado in quite a while. May have to pick up a couple of more.

pivnizub (10186) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - APR 12, 2007
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..........

leaparsons (9949) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2004
Bright yellow/gold in colour. Aromas are sweet grain with zesty citrus notes. Flavours are also grain with soft malts and some citrus bite. I was reminded of lemon sherbert sweets. Quite floral hops are evident but this lacks bitterness or dryness on the finish. A refreshing pils.

DuffMan (9611) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 17, 2010
Bottle. Bright gold, clear, robust frothy white head, good retention and early lace. Pale cereal grain aroma, grassy and bitter lemon accents. Clean pale malt backbone, nice husky grain flavour with a grassy bitter hoppy finish. Solid quality pilsener.

MoritzF (9448) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - MAR 1, 2007
(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.

MartinT (9411) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 2, 2010
My Bottom Line:
This quenching Pilsener provides elegant herbal hoppiness within discreet barley sweetness for a pleasant but unmemorable pint.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sticky head of foam garnishes the misty pale blond.
-The malts could definitely be crisper.
-The soft frothiness of the carbonation is engaging.
-A light noble hop bitterness is accompanied by barley sugar.

KyotoLefty (9405) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 4, 2011
Bottle. Grainy, malty aroma with grass and cardboard. Quite pale yellow color. Malty, with grain and cardboard. Undistinguished. Would like to try it fresh on tap.

bottle, bought at Weltenburg. Clear pale yellow with agreen glow, large and creamy white head. Resiny hoppy nose. Light-bodied, crisp and clean, lots of resiny-grassy hop flavours ith a touch of hay on a solid malty background. Delicious.

3fourths (9150) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 2, 2008
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 haven’t seen much light.
