Würzburger Hofbräu Premium Pilsner has been the undisputed market leader in its core area of Lower Franconia for decades. It is brewed from the very best raw materials; it is elegant and delicately bitter in taste. In terms of sales focus, this beer comes top of our list. The classic visual appearance of the product is a defining element of our overall brand, Würzburger Hofbräu, and therewith of our company's whole image.

BBD 2/16. Pours a clear golden. World class head volume, retention and lacing. Outstanding light pilsner nose. A touch of noble hops and hints of lemon over a subtle grainy biscuit. Light medium body with a smooth texture. Superb carbonation with a nice burst of effervescence in the middle a finely bubbled rush in the finish. The flavor profile is almost world class. It is moderate in intensity, slightly complex and perfectly balanced. It begins with a slight noble hop flavor, more herbal than spicy, that flows into a mild subdued bitterness. The middle allows a light grainy biscuit to achieve balance. As the finish approaches, lemon notes are evident. The finish is crisp.

Light straw-colored beer with a medium fizzy bright white head. Nose of sweet corn, hay, and cracker. Flavor is mildly bitter with some lemon and a touch a sweet malt to buttress it. Well-balanced and not complex, this is a quality pilsner, although not my favorite style.

330 ml. bottle, shared at brew club. Pours a thin, poorly retained white head, over a clear yellow (SRM 3) body......nose is Pils malt, hints of cereal, light hops....taste is slightly sweet with Pils malts, finishing with light bitterness.....mouth feel, light body, no alcohol, high carbonation. This is a fairly typical German Pils. BJCP 8/3/15/4/7

Maker: Würzburger Hofbräu (Schörghuber), Würzburg, Germany *** Beer: Würzburger Hofbräu Premium Pilsener (on tap, 500ml) *** Style: Pilsener *** ALC.VOL.: 4.9% *** "Würzburger Hofbräu Premium Pilsner has been the undisputed market leader in its core area of Lower Franconia for decades. It is brewed from the very best raw materials; it is elegant and delicately bitter in taste. In terms of sales focus, this beer comes top of our list." *** Colour: Deep golden yellow, clear; medium white head. *** Nose: Floral hops and lemon, some malt; no bread nor plaster notes. *** Texture: Medium body, active carbonation, still a bit watery. *** Taste: Bitter hops, floral notes and lemon at the start; malts for balance in the background. More bitter in the middle, even with some pinewood notes and herbs. Bitter hoppy finish with lemon, malts. Lasting bitter aftertaste. *** Impressions: Polished, excellent Pilsener type beer without the woeful wet plaster notes that mar industrial Pilseners (Warsteiner et al). Agreeable lemony note throughout.

Draft from a few days ago I forgot to rate. A solid, balanced Pilsner. Very drinkable and great with dinner. I'd get it again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
