2015 BJCP Category: 5D German Pils
AROMA: Strong skunky smell. Mostly from lightstrike, possibly from Noble hops. Lightly sweet grainy malt base is present as well. Clean fermentation profile. 8/12
APPEARANCE: Brilliantly clear white gold (2-5 SRM). Large white foamy head. Retains and laces well. 3/3
FLAVOR: Medium spicy/peppery Noble hops and minor bitterness. Surprisingly sweet malt taste on the backend with slight graham cracker flavor. Lightstrike was immediately evident on the first swig only. Palette pretty well balanced (though lack of hop dominance could be due to age of bottle). Aftertaste is a little sweet. 14/20
MOUTHFEEL: Medium-light body with medium-high carbonation. Quite crisp, but slightly slick texture. Very sessionable at 4.9% ABV. 4/5
OVERALL IMPRESSION: Definitely on-point for a German Pils. Not bad considering old bottle. Probably amazing fresh. 7/10
TOTAL SCORE: 36/50
I’ve been drinking this Pils for a little while now, and it’s about time I rated it. I think this brew does an admirable job of offering a very high-quality, fresh, and authentic German Pils to the American market. However, a great Pils should be very sessionable, and i found that Einbecker’s initial class doesn’t really hold up after two or three cold ones. It begins tasting watery and poorly balanced. It is still quite good, but noticeably tired. This is still the best German Pils I can get my hands on, now that the superior Lammsbrau and Tannenzapfle are no longer available. It’s difficult to be wholly impressed after becoming familiar with those two titans. biir (1361) - Berlin, - MAY 31, 2017

Bottle. Clear golden looks of a typical Pilsener. Nice head. Aroma is grassy, grainy with a touch of citrus fruits. Taste is grassy, grainy and slightly fruity without being sweet. Some hoppy bitterness. Medium carbonation. Crisp, clean and easy drinking. It’s alright. wombat23 (1419) - Texas, USA - MAR 9, 2017
33cl bottle. Clear pale gold, fizzy short-lived white head. Aroma of pils malt and grasses. Taste is pils malt, grass, some apple. I would say it is tangy as noted in the description, and it is also fairly bitter for a pilsener. Decent.

(En fût à South Park Brewing): Vivement herbacé, très sec et minéral avec une impression globale de fraîcheur. nybol (2201) - DENMARK - JUL 2, 2016
En god skarp smag af humle. En fin balance i øllen, der (hvis der skal være noget galt) så er den lidt for syrlig. slowrunner77 (12051) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUN 3, 2016
Grassy and grainy nose and flavor. Typical look and feel for the Euro sub-style. Pretty average across the board, but pleasant enough. Rolex2193 (7) - - MAY 16, 2016 does not count
The Brauherren Pils of Einbeck is a refreshing Pilsener with a strong taste of bitterness and light taste of green hops. The beer really good suites the summer and it is really good against thirsty feelings. Brewed at the same brewery of the fames Bock Beer. Worth every penny. Contains hop, hop extract and malts.
Das Einbecker Brauherren Pils ist ein sehr volles Bier mit einer angenehmen Bitterheit. Enthält Hopfen, Hopfen Extract und Gerstenmalz. Das Bier ist füllig gebraut nach dem Deutschen Rheinheitsgebot. blutt59 (6564) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 9, 2016
