felsenpils (174) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 27, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2014 Very nice Pils. Light golden color, good head retention, nice bitter hops flavor. Just a touch of aromatic hops from a very late hop addition, probably in the whirlpool, but certainly not dry hopped later on. This is one of the few Pilseners made outside of Germany which really stands up well in the style. More character and hop taste than mainstream German PIlseners like Warsteiner, Beck´s and König. The only problem is that it is not well known outside of Austria and tends to stay on the shelf a long time. So finding a fresh bottle or half-liter can may be a problem.

330 mL bottle that is probably in the coolest shape I’ve seen in a while. It’s like a grenade waiting to happening. We enjoyed about 6 or 7 of these each among many Kalashnikov shots. It was a fascinating time at Bar Ernst Fuchs. The pour on this is a thinner clear golden straw with a thick white head that wisps down with some soapy lace left behind. The aroma is very pilsner like. There is a good maltiness to it, a cleanliness, a strong wheat, and then a hint of metallic sweetness on the finish. It’s pretty good, but it’s not my thing. The flavor is just as sweet. Definite pilsner with a light wheatiness and a strong sweet malt. It’s not terrible, but there are many better things. The mouth feel is light and watery with a soft carbonation and a lingeringly sweet malt finish. It’s just something that I can do without.

Tap en ook wel eens flesje, beide op vakantie in Oostenrijk. Veel te alledaags, vrij zwak pils. Industrieel.

500 ml bottle. Pours straw-yellow with a white head. The aroma is intense, grassy withe some malt. Medium body with a lively carbonation, medium bitterness and very light sweetness. The flavor is mainly pale malt with some light fruit notes (unripe grapes) and grass.

HopTsing (575) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - NOV 6, 2016
From backlog. Pale yellow with thick frothy head. Light malt aroma (biscuit). Buttery malt with hop finish. Light bodies. Everything one would want in a pils.

SinH4 (4759) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - OCT 23, 2016
Tap. Clear golden color with white head and a high carbonation. Aroma is mildly grassy, some citrus leafs, orange, Fruchtgummi, and a slight malty/grainy sweetness. Taste is grassy, mil malty and grainy sweetness, Fruchtgummi and citrus/orange flavours again. Clean and crisp, with a rather bitter dry finish. Solid hoppiness, solid crispness. Soft but high carbonation. Not a bad Pils at all, I think this is underrated.
