Das ist das beste Bier das ich kenne!! Sehr mild und klar! Die Krone feinporig, hält sich auch sehr lang!! Beermaster99 (6) - , AUSTRALIA - OCT 28, 2008 does not count
This is a fantastic beer with it’s rich bitter flavour underlined by slight sweetness. The finish is a lot smoother and fuller than other German (bitter) beer.
'badbeer' did such a good job in describing it, that I cannot think of anything else.
I live in Australia - I would kill to get this beer here! In my opinion the best pils I have ever tasted! stackmagic (1) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 6, 2011 does not count

There doesn’t seem to be anything more simple and good than relaxing in an espresso-scented cafe watching Chelsea and Arsenal of the All-London Champions League battle it out while draining glasses of fresh Rothaus Pils mere kilometers from the source. Leave it to a Staatsbrauerei, or State-owned brewery, to make a beer of this quality. The people demand it! Reminiscent of another Staatsbrauerei just East of Baden. You might have heard of it. Weihenstephan.
While the Rothaus tannenzäpfle seems a bit more solid in structure, it is difficult if near impossible to find vom fass and hardly worth seeking if you have easy access to fresh Pils--of course there is no reason why a few bottles can’t be purchased and consumed when one needs a little time alone, see. But, I was lucky enough to have an abundant supply of the Pils within two flights of stairs at the lobby bar of the Central Hotel Schwenningen. Needless to say, I ended most of my evenings there, happily snorting the open rim of the glass, incessantly sip-sipping like some crazed beer fiend who found the mother-lode. I must have been a sight. Watching the puffy white cap form quick strata as the pale-gold liquid underneath rapidly vanished. I drank from one side only to ensure I could layer the glass completely and was always hesitant to give up my finished piece of art to the tender. I did though, every time, for a freshy, billowing odors of lemongrass and honey drenched sopapillas straight from the fryer, flavored by exquisitely balanced portions of creamy malted barley and spicy hops. A most drinkable beer that washes down a thumb of Kirschwasser or a Kebap equally well, yet can stand alone if the situation calls.
From Freiburg to Rottweil and all points in-between Rothaus is the bier to seek in Southern Baden. Prima!

maybe i was under the spell of the black forest in july, or maybe it was the lederhosen clad, pink cheeked rothaus girl on the coaster smiling seductively at me, but this was the most enjoyable beer of many that i put back during a 3 week trip overseas. seemed regional - on draght all across swartzvald. felixw (1) - ENGLAND - APR 28, 2006 does not count
Bought in the Schwarzwald (Black Forest) capital Freiburg, there could be no nicer way to enjoy the mountains’ fresh spring water. Opening the bottle by crunching off the golden aluminium foil is like crunching Black Forest fir crones - no wonder they gave the pils that name. The hops-aromatic flavour persists for the whole evening, while the taste is just superb and easily makes this pils one of the best German ever. Besides the herb-like aroma, the taste is distinctly "stuffed", a bit oily, a bit malty. I would call it rather "a lager that actually tastes of something" than a bitter, which it isn’t really. Highly recommended!
