fishonmyplane (505) - 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.

Grumbo (1198) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2016
Bottle from a small beer orientated shop which I happened to walk passed in Frankfurt en route from Naiv to my hotel. Pale golden in colour win a small white head. Aroma of sweet corn, lightly malted, light hop. Medium sweetness, no detectable bitterness. Light/medium body, sticky texture, quite light carbonation. Finish is smooth with a light caramel sweetness. A bette than average Pilsner.

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.

JBPortland (1477) - Newport News, Virginia, 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.

sinfull (1376) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JAN 10, 2016
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.

Piw (780) - Rüsselsheim, GERMANY - DEC 19, 2015

3fourths (9059) - 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 (1324) - 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.
