Yellow with smallish head. Restrained bitterness in the aroma, balanced.with crystal malt and grass. Nicely balanced flavour, grass and graininess are overcome by a big crisp maltiness. beeracoon (514) - - OCT 13, 2012
Small white head. Yellow colour. Bitter aroma. Very fruity and lightly bitter taste. Spicy palate. Good one. Paserge (6) - Warrington, Cheshire, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2012 does not count
Perhaps it’s because I associate this pils with such a lovely part of the world do I enjoy drinking it so much! Not as distinctive or dry as many a pilsner but a good all round performer even though it appears to have lost some of its edge of late.

UPDATED: SEP 30, 2015 This ubiquitous, typically sweetish Southern German pilsener in its national cult bottle is every supermarket’s or Döner shop’s cooler choice and thus a forced quencher whenever thirsty in and around the Black Forest metropoles and BW-environs, stretching out to the Swabian-infested bouroughs of Berlin, into Leipzig and Dresden nowadays. Dry yeast and sweet honey malt with a metallic finish. At times unpleasant paper-cardboard and boiled vegetable aftertaste that drowns out a lot of the fair-quality zesty Tettnang (both pellets and extract) profile. Overhyped, yet solid Pils with actually a fair bit of character - just not the sweetish character I prefer in a Pils (cf.: neighbour Waldhaus for a supreme natural hop, unfiltered version of the same SW-sweet Pils recipe). +0.4/Originally rated from bottle and tap 2013, rerates 2014. // Rerate from local draught: this is a fine and elegantly hopped PIls from tap, alas little of this delicacy seems to survive the bottling line-- Draught: 3.5 vs. bottled 2.7. // Rerates: coming to terms with the elegant balance this pils strikes between lieblich SouthWestern tastes and Nordic pils bitterness. On tap the Tettnanger really shines. ladnewton (2035) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2012
Bottle from corner shop in Berlin, Germany on 28th September 2012. Slightly yeasty hoppy aroma. Grassy hop in-mouth, sharpish citrus toward the end with hoppiness fruit and tanginess in finish. Zingy with a fair amount of body.

Regular pilsener , light, clear golden, long finish and a bit citric. All in all unremarkable. Idiosynkrasie (7963) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 26, 2012
500ml bottle. Clear golden colour with average, firm, frothy, white head. Grainy, grassy aroma. Taste is initially minimally tart grainy, a mineralic touch takes over in the middle part, strange dry, grassy, "spelty" aftertaste. Bibendum (117) - ITALY - SEP 21, 2012
Classica beverina pils tedesca. Spiccano le note maltate e prevale un finale amarognolo. Ottima ber lunghe bevute MADpalace (219) - Budel, NETHERLANDS - SEP 12, 2012
Clear citron-yellow with very thin collar. Smells like pilsener (and found out that this beer just is a pilsener) with some citron freshness. Taste is mild with flavours of wood. dinkle50 (1531) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 8, 2012
Pale golden pour with a nice head. Aroma of grain. A little hop for balance. The taste is very clean. Good balance. Very easy drinking with a light sweetness.
