Beautiful fluffy head on pour, and nice strong malty aroma. This is going to be good, right? Taste is weak and watery, unexpected as it smelled so good. Nothing is left on the palate either, so I makrked it down for that. I was posed for something great, and got just plain mediocre....

Flasche (Würzburger Hofbräu Pilsener, 33 cl) vom Bahnhofskiosk Würzburg. - Goldgelb, blank. - In der Nase etwas strohig-muffige Malzsüße und billig anmutende krautige Hopfenherbe. - Im Antrunk deutlich muffiges Malz und kräftige aber geschmacksarme krautige Hopfenherbe. schlank Gut rezent, schlank, leerer Körper. Trockener Abgang mit üblen muffigen Aromen (Sägemehl?) und nicht zu schwacher aber billiger krautiger Bittere. Längerer, leicht chemischer Nachtrunk. - Mieses Pilsener, durch ranzige Hopfenextrakt-Fehlaromen ruiniert.

JBPortland (1446) - Portland, Maine, USA - FEB 8, 2016
On tap from 5L mini keg pours crystal clear gold with 2 finger head. Nose is crisp corn, soft grain, touch of grassyness. Taste is crisp, snappy, nice balanced medium bitterness, corn, grain, potato, wheat bread, crust. Finishes with nice lingering balanced bitterness, all the earthy grain, touches of light grassyness and faintest hints of citrus you want from a pilsner while being overall balanced, refreshing, and superbly drinkable.

Good , classic pilsner. Golden color . Surprisingly weak head as for German beer. Malt and grass in aroma. Taste follows the aroma with refreshing, hoppy bitterness.

3fourths (8980) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 17, 2015
Bottle best by June 2016, pours clear gold with a thin white head. Hoppy aroma is lemon, herbs, mineral water, faint soap, with quiet Pilsner malt expressed as dried crackers and toasted grain. Light bodied, lightly sweet to off-dry, moderately bitter, soft malt texture, fluffy effervescence, cleanly fermented with solid finishing bitterness and a lingering herbal-pepper-thyme quality. Lemon-y and oily and juicy and quite bitter, it’s certainly Franconian in character. The noble hop aroma and finish quality are quite good, there’s no defects at all, flavor balance is enjoyable, I just wish the aroma had more oomph.

gripweed57 (1283) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - OCT 18, 2015
330 ml bottle. Pours a light golden color with a moderate frothy white head. Nose is mostly light grain with a touch of noble hops. Flavor mirrors the nose. Some metallic spicy hops in finish. Wurzburger brews some outstanding beers including their wonderful Christmas Festbier, Julius Echter Weissbiers and Sympator Doppelbock. This pales in comparison.

tillmac62 (636) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - SEP 15, 2015
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.
