COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Bavarian brewers have been masters in their trade for centuries and therefore also brew excellent pils beers. Indeed it was a Bavarian master brewer that brewed the first beer according to the pilsner method in the town of Pilsen! The glimmering, light-yellow Ayinger Bairisch Pils has the fragrance of aromatic hops from the “Hallertau” region of Bavaria (only these are used in the Ayinger beer specialties!). The beer is highly fermented and therefore smooth on the initial taste sensation, but also mild and sparkling in body. Our pils is accentuated by the floweriness of the hops aroma and has a more pronounced bitterness on swallowing, which quickly fades from the taste buds. 11.8°

Marko (6383) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 14, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 14, 2018 Bottle. Fantastic crystal clear pale golden body, thick, laaaaasting white head. Almost 5. Dry hayish maltiness, some peppery hoppiness, okay. Lovely grainy, creamy notes, mild herbal and bitter hoppy touches. Excellent, drinkable lager. Not as dry as some pilses, but tasty.

Bottle. Lemon, barley malt and floral grass aroma. Slightly hazy golden yellow with nice white head. Moderately sweet lemon, barley malt, and moderately bitter floral grass/hay flavor. Good body - moderate carbonation.

"Bavarian Pils" 11.2floz bottle, no date, $1.75 unit cost, pint glass. It checks off in the wet hay/straw department. It appears with fizzy bubbles rushing up through the golden body to sustain steady, tight head. The palate is rustically traditional. This is to say it is grainy and has a mineral quality to indicate this is ain't a watered pale lager. Overall this is a balanced well executed pilsner, which it should be because it's from a reputable German brewery.

felsenpils (185) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 3, 2018
The name has been changed to "Bavarian PIls". Sample tasted on tap. Pours a slightly hazy deep golden color with a very nice and long lasting white head. The aroma is actually fairly neutral, but clean. The flavor is somewhat thin and the finish is of aroma hops and not malt. I looked up the specs and found 11.7° Plato OG with 32 IBU. The low OG is very common with modern German Pilseners and is reflected by the somewhat thin malt body. A very pleasant beer with a nice hop oil taste, but really lacking in malt body because of the trend in Germany to save money by cutting back on the malt bill. Would somebody in Germany please brew a traditional German Pils with 12.5° Plato OG and 36 IBU? Ayinger is still a private, family-owned brewery and they can do better than this.

330ml bottle as “Ayinger Bairisch Pils”. Pours crystal clear gold with a medium-sized white head. Aroma is biscuity malt, light grassy hops. Taste is dry and malty with medium bitterness.

3.7
wlajwl (7279) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - DEC 18, 2017
Aroma is German lager yeast and dryish German malts. The flavor is German lager yeast/malts, very mild fruit and a dry finish.

3.6
chinchill (5449) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 16, 2017
330 ml bottle of the 5.3% ABV "Bavarian Pils". Spicy hop aroma and flavor. Lingering spicy hops with baked bread notes. Near medium body with medium-high carbonation. Overall: excellent version of the style.

3.6
Cybercat (6423) - Georgia, USA - DEC 10, 2017
Taps clear topaz with a porcelain head. Aroma features sweet pomme and tropical fruit plus fresh malt. Flavor echoes the aroma while adding some woody hops. Mouthfeel offers fair body, lively fizz, and a malty and woody hop finish. A zinger from Ayinger.

3.8
canary dog (784) - Rutland, Vermont, USA - NOV 24, 2017
Crackery, biscuity Teutonic goodness. Some Pilsner malts creep up towards the finish and fade away against the cascading Noble hop spiciness. Very drinkable and fresh, as can be expected with any German Pils. This is not in the top tier of German Pils but it is certainly in the next one down. Enjoy in multiples.
