This is a good, basic German pilsener. It has a dark golden color, and an average sized head. It managed to cross the atlantic with a decent amount of hops still intact, perhaps more than I generally like, but not too bad.

Innocuous looking German pilsener without the fluffy white head I had expected and desired. Aromas of innocuous German pilsener that doesn’t pretend to be anything but quaffing beer. Therein lies its beauty because its flavour is innocuous, German and pilsener-y. Perfect for quaffing, perfect for me ticking the box and moving on toward my next beer, that will be my 2,000th rating. So I say goodbye and good luck to Wolters Innocuous German Pilsener.

I think I’ve learned my lesson: any beer that proudly announces how it is brewed according to the German purity law is most likely gonna taste like low-grade slosh. And this is no exception, although at least it assertive! Huzzah! Have at you, you knave! , but it’s coppery metallicness sets my teeth on edge. Flavours of sweet green apples mixed with lime and, oh, what a surprise, corny vegetable oil at the back. Maybe if they gave the finger to the bullshit purity law they could brew a decent beer?

PorterPounder (6062) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - 500 ml can. Pours a headless light golden, sparkling yet lifeless. Aroma has some slight wet paper bag essence. a hint of saaz hoppiness. Flavor is dull and somewhat lifeless, just a hint of honey sweetness, some dusty grainy notes, some mineral water. Mouthfeel is thin and dry. Not one of Germany’s finest Pils.

This might be a touch on the mild side for some but not a bad German pilsener all in all. It’s perfectly clear golden with a foamy and large head. I get an edge of floral, noble hops in the nose and some fresh cracked malt. The floral hops really pop out once you taste it, very fresh and floral with crisp, earthy bitterness and a touch of mineral character to touch the very light malty sweetness. This is a fairly full bodied beer and nicely drinkable though I do find myself wishing for just a little more carbonation. Overall, this is a nice take on the style: good hops, malty w/o being sweet and easy to drink.

larsga (6626) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 5, 2015
Big offwhite head. Clear yellow body with strong carbonation. Fruity mealy sugary aroma with floral paper notes. Sweetish honey and flowers taste with mealy spicy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish mealy floral fruity aftertaste with spicy notes. Nothing wrong with this. Nice, straightforward lager. (0.5l can, Vinbudin Kringlan, Reykjavik. My notes give ABV as 5.1%.)

gildnerk (170) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - MAY 3, 2015
Durchschnittspils. Hellgelb mit weißer Schaumkrone. Aromen von Getreide, Mais. Geschmack etwas herb mit dominanten Hopfen und einem glatten Abgang, dennoch keinem großartigen Charakter.

high_on_hops (763) - Burlingame, California, USA - MAR 12, 2015
Pours a clearish gold with a white head. It has a faint, malty aroma and a flavor that is slightly sweet malt and biscuit up front and a crisp finish over a light body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
