A truly great Pils, a little maltier and more ‘Bavarian’ than the rest. The 6-packs are brand new for the American market.

felsenpils (170) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 12, 2013
This is a fine example of a Bavarian Pilsener. NIce bright golden color, great foam retention, good bitterness and a bit of a hop aroma. NIce and soft and clean, you can drink it by the bucket. This is one of the beers that American microbrewers never get right. One of the finest Pilseners imported from Germany.

33cl bottle. Pours clear pale gold with a creamy white head. Aroma and taste of pils malt, hay, corn, skunk notes. Light body. OK.

floydslip (383) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 11, 2017
Clear straw colored beer with a thick foamy bright white head. Nose of tea, funk, and corn. Flavor is a bit watery and bland with some sweet cereal grain, wet cardboard, and mild musky hops. With medium carbonation and light mouth feel, this is a fairly non-descript beer.

weitz15 (569) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 7, 2017
Golden yellow pour, not much head. A little skunky on the aroma as well as the taste. Mild grain finish.

chinchill (4751) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 30, 2016
On tap at the Pour Taproom in Greenville, SC. Appearance: very light and pale golden body with a decent white head with some lacing. Aroma: weird. Stronger than expected. Unusual and hard to describe, but a bit dank. Flavor: mild but bolder than the watery appearance suggests. Hop dominated with some caramel. Feel: -light body with medium carbonation. Overall: distinctive.

mile (3914) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 25, 2016
Bottle. Light golden, small to average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate, malty - lightly grainy and lightly sweetish aroma, light herbal hoppyness. Body is light to medium, malty - lightly grainy and lightly sweetish flavor, light herbal hoppyness. Finish is average, malty - lightly grainy and dryish/lightly sweetish with light herbal hoppyness. Nothing wrong - nothing special. Could be drier with more bitterness (if marketed as "truly great pils").

puboflyons (3328) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 24, 2016
From the 11.2% bottle. Clear, straw yellow pour underneath a modest white foamy head. The aroma brings out a good toasted malt and bread character with a little soapiness and some cut grass. Light body. Toasted malt character for sure in the flavor with a clean and crisp grassy hop finish. Refreshing on a 85 degree day. It is a Pilsener and pretty straightforward.

Moravius (1238) - Beijing, CHINA - JUL 16, 2016
Dose (50 cl) aus dem Sanlitun Friendship Store, Peking. - Goldgelb, klar, üppige Schaumkrone. - Geruch sehr hellmalzig-süß mit zu milden, schwach floralen Hopfenaromen, etwas kalkig. - Antrunk überwiegend malzsüß mit Weißbrot. Die schwach zitronige Hopfenherbe ist sehr zurückhaltend. Ganz schwache Gummi-Anklänge. Mild rezent, weich im Mund. Im Abgang schwach krautige Herbe. - Malzbetontes Pilsener des bayerischen Typs mit sehr schwach ausgeprägter Hopfung und ein wenig billiger Anmutung. Trotzdem sehr süffig.

snoworsummer (5462) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 19, 2016
Draft at the Gnarly Barley. Pours hazy dark gold with a fizzy off white head. Tastes like pale malts, faint corn, booze, and light beer. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like sweet corn, pale malts, and bread.
