felsenpils (162) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 16, 2009
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2013 I can remember drinking König Pils as a kid in Germany. There was a chain of pubs around the country called "König City" which featured this beer. And you know, it was pretty tasty. But nowadays, it tastes like a watered down Pils with low bitterness, no hop aroma and very little body. I mean, they even admit to an original gravity of 11.3°Plato which is just a joke. Too bad really, but this is a general trend in Germany and there is no hope in sight. Clean, drinkable, but totally boring. How do you make a low quality beer, but still follow the German Purity Law of 1516? Just use less of everything.

Ei niin huono perusolut. Olikin ihan mukava suutuntuma ja enemmän luonnetta kuin suomalaisissa.

Not bad pilsener. Grassy hops and malt. Better than average. Have to retest for more detailed review.

thellgren (891) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 4, 2016
0.33 l bottle from Alko Hakaniemi, Helsinki. Appearance is clear and golden. This is lightly malty and actually quite light as a whole but it is also nicely hopped. Quite nice but not exceptional.
