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.

EithCubes (5207) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 30, 2013
Bottle. No nose, hazy light yellow-golden body with a bright white head. Medium body smooth with low bitter and stale, tangy grain, light noble hops and a fresh bit of woodsiness. Not the cleanest.

Shaney (2425) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - JUL 29, 2013
Hellgelbes Pils mit schlankem Malzkörper, angenehmer Würze und grasig-hopfigem Abgang. Guter Standard eines klassischen dt. Pilseners.

fishonmyplane (500) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - JUL 27, 2013
Just enough hops to add bitterness & some interesting spice notes in the finish. Grassy, and a little grainy. Malts are smooth & in the background. The definition of a session beer.

bartlebier (2491) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JUL 26, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2013 Draught@Gasthaus Roter Ochse, Seßlach Jul2013. Decent enough pale thirst-quencher, bot not much of a match against (or after) the 2nd Hausbier on tap, Seßlacher Kommunbrauhaus’ Hausbräu. Still feels artisanal with some character, but more of a gentle sessioning Helles than a Pilsner, even by Bavarian standards.

canary dog (685) - Rutland, Vermont, USA - JUL 20, 2013
Rich and lingering Noble hops accentuate this pils. Middle notes are a touch sweet, although it still pulls off the crisp finish of a Bavarian pilsner. Full mouthfeel. An excellent Bavarian pilsner.

Embrouille (2831) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 8, 2013
Bottled 50cl. Courtesy of kevnic2008. Pale malts and spicy hops throughout. Grainy. Clearly above average.

MadRobin (2306) - Silver Spring, USA - JUN 30, 2013
On tap at the Hotel Meisnerhof in Erlabrunn, Germany. Clear, effervescent, bright golden yellow with a 3-finger white head and excellent lacing. Aroma of grain, pilsener malt, yeast and grass. Taste of grain and pilsener malt. Medium body and medium carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Berard (430) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 24, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 9, 2013 Draft. This is a great German lager and one of my all time favorites. Pours light yellow with thin white head. Great flavor for a lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Patrickctenchi (4627) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAY 14, 2013
Pours slightly hazed medium gold with a soapy white head. Scent is sweet grain, malt, bread, a little citrus. Taste is peppery bread, slightly herbal bitter. Very crisp and tingly....tasty.

Beautiful clear, golden pour with ample creamy head. Subtle aroma of bread, grain and a bit of herbal hoppiness. Smells just like good German beer should. Drinks clean, crisp, and refreshing. Begins moderately sweet with lightly toasted malts and finishes crisp and slightly bitter with a nice herbal hop. A Little hit of spiciness and lemon zest. Great pilsner and makes me want to go back to Germany. I wish well-made lagers would get rated higher on this site.
