foyle (427) - Wyoming, USA - APR 13, 2014
Poured from 11.2 oz can into pint glass. Appearance: a frothy white head recedes with moderate lacing. Color is mostly clear light golden with plenty of sediment in suspension. Light streaming carbonation. Aroma: grassy hops, yeast rolls, barley malt. Mouthfeel: light and a bit oily with a somewhat dry finish. Flavor: biscuit, fruit, raisin, white bread, grassiness and bitter herbs. Overall: very nice, would be glad to try this one again.

Erzengel (9462) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 10, 2017
Smooth mild beginning. Neutral body, sessionable with grainy hints. Long neutral aftertaste with hints of grain and not much bitterness.

1.9
Piepenhenrich (1226) - Steinbach, GERMANY - OCT 8, 2017
Once again, I don't see what makes this Lager a PIls, especially not super or - as mine was labelled - Premium. No comparison to a German or Bohemian Pils. Drinkable, yes, but nothing to get excited about.

unclefrito62 (347) - Stow, Ohio, USA - SEP 17, 2017
11.2 ounce can at lizard Copley. Light yellow with thin white head. Aroma of grains Light, smooth to drink. Average pilsner to me.

2.6
adamnowek (3283) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 1, 2017
Bright yellow with a puffy head. Aroma is a bit spicy and grassy. Taste is pretty sweet with a fairly imposing malt character. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.7
rodenbachvintage (168) - Roeselare, BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2017
oerdegelijke, eerlijke pils. Niet te zoet, niet te bitter, vlotte drinker. Beetje hoppig in de nasmaak, wat de meeste Belgische pilsen minder hebben.

3.5
ChadPolenz (1847) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - JUL 29, 2017
BBD: 1/6/17

2015 BJCP Category: 5D German Pils

AROMA: Moderate spicy Noble hop presence. Slightly skunky. Touch of lemon and honey as well. General pale malt scent with indication of sweetness. 8/12

APPEARANCE: Straw yellow hue (2-4 SRM); very clear body. Small, white foam. 3/3

FLAVOR: Medium Noble hop peppery/spicy flavor and bitterness right away. Moderately sweet malt base with a honey/lemon flavor quickly follows. Well-attenuated, clean fermentation. Hops linger momentarily, otherwise the aftertaste is clean. 13/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium-light body; medium carbonation. Refreshing and crisp. Easily sessionable at 5.2% ABV, especially in warmer months. 4/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Mostly to spec for the style, just a little mild. Fun and easy to drink, though. 7/10

TOTAL SCORE: 35/50
