(bottle) Clear golden colour with a short and non-persistent foamy white head. Slightly sweet and grainy malty aroma with toasted elements and herbal hops. Bittersweet flavour, light to medium body, smooth carbonated mouthfeel. Malty, slightly bready taste with a soft early hoppy bitterness; dry and moderately bitter, light hoppy finish. Drinkable, decent and somewhat strange. User37895 (3085) - - JUL 27, 2006
Poured a straw clear color, some chill haze, nice initial head, although the retention wasn’t great. Lacing was ok. Aroma of grassy Saaz hops, some honey. Flavor followed suit, but with a crisp cleanness that was enjoyable. Mouthfeel was crisp, hoppy in the finish, a clean lager type feel. nick76 (4403) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 7, 2006
The aroma is light and has grassy and floral hops, corn malt, and a touch of yeast. The appearance is pale gold with a nice foamy head. The flavor is bitter sweet with plenty of hops and light sweet malts. The palate is thin but just right for a Pilsner. A very good example of a Pilsner if that’s your thing. blueduk (118) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUN 17, 2006
This beer was on tap at The Bier Stein and I was excited to try it. I took a big whiff of my pint: vinegar. I had never ever had this experience there, and I thought maybe my taste was gone crazy. It is a tribute to this establishment that without hesitation they took my beer and poured me another at no charge. Of course, it was immediately necessary to buy a bottle (which they conveniently had in the fridge) and rate it at home.
Mahrs Pilsner pours a hazy yellow with a thick white foamy head which hangs around for a while before leaving some decent lacing.
The aroma is powerfully hops, as you would hope, with floral and grassy dominating with some lemon zing.
Some fruitiness in the malt backbone, but the hops continue to dominate the flavor profile. The perfumes are gone and the lemon is king of the flavor profile. Some grainy cereal malt flavors tag along for the ride.
This is a very drinkable pilsener with a full palate and clean crisp finish. One of the more lemon-centric pilseners I’ve had lately, but quite enjoyable. jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - JUN 2, 2006
From a 1pt. 9oz. euro brown bottle with a bottled on date on the back label.
Made a good appearance, poured a hazy, with light amount of sediment, pilsener golden, that ripening banana yellow, with a foamy white head that settled into a thin, bubbly lacing, good carbonation.
Had a honey and lemony fruity nose with light spices and a sourdough breadiness.
A malty crisp and smooth medium bodied mouth feel, good drinkability.
Honey, lemony and faint banana fruitiness, a sour bready maltiness, a light spiciness from hops that helps frame the taste and a dryish sour malty finish.
A good pilsener from Mahrs, one of favorite German brewers, tasty and refreshing.

-The thick foam recedes to a ring around the clear golden.
-The smooth, lean body is crisp and highly drinkable.
-Finishes with a mineral touch and shy spicy hoppiness.
-Some hay converses with the polished honeyed malts.
-Both beers on gravity cask at the brewery were extremely low in carbonation and ended in a watery, mineral note.
On tap at the brewery in Bamberg and at Prohibition Pig, in Waterbury, Vermont.
A very nice golden pour, with a beautiful white foamy head. Grainey malt profile, with some grassy hoppiness. Very clean on the palate, very drinkable. jtw (1170) - farmington, Michigan, USA - MAY 12, 2006
a delightfully hazy straw color with a crown of white foam on top, being fed constantly by a tiny stream of bubbles from within the liquid itself. typical mahr’s malt profile of wet grain, but some more grass and earth than the Mahr’s Hell - slightly chemical finish which i attribute to the german hops, but despite that slight hint of cleaning agent, it’s a very crisp and clean pilsener. more assertive and still more balanced than most other pilseners.
