Aroma reminiscent of papayas, bananas etc. Pours a mellow yellow with a small head. Flavour is quite dry and biscuity. Slightly warming too, impressive for a pils. This is all around one of the best pilsners I’ve tasted.

Hoppy and vegetal aroma. Not much bitterness for a pilsner but a great taste. I call it a everyday beer.

Bottle: Drank after a visit to the Zupspitze, Pils is not that popular in Bavaria though you’ll always find at least one option but mainly in bottles (not draft). Food Pairing: Flammkuchen

500ml can from one of the only decent beer stores I know of. Pours a nice golden pilsner colour, with the classic large German white, fluffy head. Aroma: Nice and fruity, with the typical floral hoppiness. Taste: More or less the exact same as the aroma, with some biscuity malts and a surprisingly nice Noble hop bite thrown in. Nothing spectacular, nothing unique, just a nice tall refreshing glass of a German Pilsener, which is exactly what I was expecting. And in that sense, it is beautiful in it’s simplicity. Amongst other imported options around here, this one is a pretty good example of this style IMHO, and I tend to consider myself a lager-lover of sorts.

Bottle, from Beers of Europe (website). Rich, golden colour, nice frothy head, fairly fizzy. Dry, slightly hoppy flavour, very crisp. Not much of a development in flavour, but a lingering bitterness, that recedes slowly. Classoc German technology - refreshing, and flavours are balanced and dry, without being harsh.

On tap: The aroma consists of mild florals, cereal notes, and grass. It’s a transparent gold with a two finger white head that fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. There are some thin soapy rings left on the sides of the glass with each sip. The flavor starts with mild sweet cereal notes with a hint of honey. The finish has light-moderate grass and florals. It’s light bodied with light-moderate carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel.

oktober (1) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 17, 2003 does not count
I tried this classic German Pils(northern style brewed in south)and thought it was mildly carbonated,hoppy and dry tasting.Pleasant texture and aftertaste(slighly bitter),with a beautiful golden colour.Would look for this beer again.Now available in Canada.

Mullo (102) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 26, 2004
Golden amber. Fruity undertones. Good hopping. Pale malt infulence. Lots of palate. Not sure about if it was pastuerised or filtered, because of a very lightly cloudy particled appearance. Good lager style aroma, but not particularly strong.

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2003 clear golden colour, few head, hoppy, fat grass aroma, tart and bitter, very dry herbal finish - a good example of the style
