UPDATED: OCT 23, 2016 It is a good pils. We feel the hop and the beer is not heavy. The problem is that you say pils and the people say is not a good beer. The colour is yellow but transparent. The carbonation is right. This beer is perfect with a good meal with meat. The taste is well balanced, the last time that I drank this beer, it was when I went in this beautiful village of Aying, the bitterness is just perfect, malt, a bit watery, there is a herbal side typical from this kind of hop. I recommend to the people to go directly to the village, it is more nice than the restaurant in the city, you go there with the S7, it takes 40 minutes.

Had this at Ayinger and between Forschungbrau, Andechs and Ayinger it came it a third (which is liking saying who was better: Mickey, Willie or 'The Duke'. If you go to Munchen, stop in Ayinger (they even rent rooms and the food is great). superspak (6004) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - JUN 10, 2017
330 ml bottle into lager glass; no bottle dating, but is a recent import release. Pours crystal clear pale golden yellow color with a 1 finger dense and fluffy white head with awesome retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of cracker, bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, herbal, pepper, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance of pale malt and earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of big cracker, bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, herbal, pepper, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate herbal/grassy/spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of cracker, bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, herbal, pepper, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Incredible robustness and balance of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; with an awesome malt/bitterness balance, and zero astringent hop flavors after the finish. Moderate dryness from bitterness and carbonation, increasing through the glass. Perfectly clean lagering, with zero yeast notes present. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, crisp, and moderately grainy/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is awesome. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.3%. Overall this is an amazing German pilsner! All around incredible robustness and balance of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. A highly enjoyable offering, and perfect example of the style. Best in the style I have had yet. dwyerpg (6410) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - SEP 17, 2010
Looks fine, smells fine. this is a pretty tasty pils. Light, a good hop presence and bite and quite dry as well. Tasty and sessionable.
