Awesome Pils by the Germans. It’s expensive as hell in the US, but it;’s a wonderful beer. Had it in Germany and here and obviously it’s a little fresher and nice over in Germany, but it’s not bad here either. Needs to be cold, but not frigid and easily sipped year round.. Great stuff.

Altra birra secondo me perfetta,oltre all’Edelstoff, dell’Augustiner. Si sente e tanto già dall’aroma il luppolo Saaz. E’ fresca e vivace come birra, estremamente beverina con quel tasso alcolico leggermente più elevato delle altre pils, ma che la completa. ALLOVATE (3029) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 26, 2006

I could personally nominate this one for numerous awards because it was, honestly, the finest example of a Deutsch Pilsner I have ever tasted. It poured with excitement, the flurry of well trapped carbonation arousing a magnificent fluffy white crest that stabilised a good 2 inches thick and drabbed a wickedly fine lace down the glass. The body - the part I’m more interested in - a sparkling, dazzling yellow straw. Upon ordering this I appeared quite effeminate in light of our hosts - some Irish backpackers out for a lark - yet by the end we seemed to be quaffing a bottle each on the side of our steins of Vollbier. Aroma is so tight, so clean, and full of fresh cut flowers, finely chopped mint leaves, a heavy dose of fresh cracked pepper and a subtle mineral water edge. Dry, spicy and predominately hoppy palate, so delicate it could go up against the finest sparkling waters. A light showing of pine litters some pale malts that sit comfortably upfront. A sour edge grips, a heavy spice tails and some naughty hops wreak havoc on the swallow. Quite bitter, it draws in a surmountable amount of saliva making each sip need a follow up gulp. It finishes so clean, so bitter and so fresh it could pass as mouth-wash for desperate men needing a bit of Dutch courage - or in this case Deutsch courage. This stuck in my mind as the best, most balanced and most easily quaffable pilsners out there. It is worth a try, I don’t think notes quite describe just how good it is. Cheers!!!
Had it both on tap and in bottles. This is more intense version of helles from my point of view - more hop aroma, more sulfur in the nose. Best south german pils imho. MartinT (9932) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 10, 2011
My Bottom Line :
jonas (7610) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JUN 26, 2002
Grassy, herbal hops float atop crisp straw-like malts in this smashing dry and bubbly Pils.
Further Personal Perceptions :
-A sheet of foam clings to the pale yellow.
-Carbonation is much higher than I expected. This almost feels like champagne when sipped right after pouring.
-The finish is particularly dry; I’d like to do a side-by-side with Rothaus Pils...
-The hop character is engaging and is never overtaken by the effervescence; that is a long hop aftertaste for a Pils.
A fantastic pilsnener from Munich:
The looks are pretty ordinary, golden/yellow with a bit weak head,
but as soon as you stick your nose into the glas you will be overwhelmed by a motherload of flowery aromahops. The hops are there in the taste too, nicely balanced with a medium body.
I have to get more of theese! thedesertfox (17) - - JAN 14, 2011
on tap and 12 ounce bottles at the many augustiner beerhalls in germany. best example of pils in munich by far. ActiVesT (4) - - JUN 3, 2012 does not count
medium bitterness, lightly sour, Hops: herbs, grass. Malt: bread for sure. A bit higher in alcohol than usual pilsners (5,6%). Gustlfan (9) - GERMANY - JUL 12, 2012 does not count
Very good Pils but if its only a bit to warm then it tastes a bit boring, so drink it cold drmet (979) - GERMANY - APR 26, 2017
