Slightly sour and bitter taste. Clear golden yellow. Mild clean finish. Disappointed in this one compared to other offerings from this brewery.

Reviewed 12/23/2012. 11.2 oz bottle into a pilsner glass. A: Pours a medium straw color with great clarity. The head is a two finger white color with nice retention. The head retains more strongly away from the glass, creating a ’floater’...usually a sign of a hoppy beer. Intrigued! S: Very well hopped, which I always like. Tons of grassy, zesty noble hops overpower - in a good way - the pale malts. T: Light malt sweetness gives way to pure grassy hop goodness. Simple, but it works here. The only real complaint I have is that the finish isn’t quite as balanced as I like. As such, it’s a bit less drinkable than it could be. Having said that, it grows on me. M: The carbonation grants this a coarse, tingly sensation on the palate. It’s not entirely bone dry on the finish, either. If anything, it’s more a pils to savor, rather than one to chug. O: I feel that pilsners - when they’re done well - provide a great example of simple refreshment in lieu of water. This is one I feel that stacks up nicely. It strikes a middle ground between the intensity of Prima Pils and the delicacy of Pilsner Urquell.

Nekronos (4213) - Xalapa, MEXICO - DEC 9, 2012
INteresting as all weihenstephaner ones. NIce to drink and not much graspy as many german Pilsners, but this one is from the south. Nice foam too.

3.2
mansquito (7148) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Whole Foods, Bowery 33cl ($3): Pours a light golden with a rather long-lasting head. Aroma is grassy hops, grass, vegetables, and dust. Taste is mildly hoppy. Bitterness sustains throughout. Aftertaste is rather mild. Easy to drink of course. Has a nice mouth feel. Rather crisp. Subdued sweetness.

3.3
Quack-Duck (9540) - Down South, GERMANY - NOV 4, 2012
bottle from Bierzwerg. Clear pale golden yellow, large white head. Lovely hop aroma, resiny and grassy. Shy but solid malty base with lost of good grassy and resiny hop flavours, slightly floral.

chinchill (5396) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 2, 2012
.3l serving in pilsner glass at the brewery in Freising. Light yellow gold with a sizable white head. The head is durable and leaves loads of sticky lacing. Both the aroma and flavor are far more hoppy than malty, and the beer leaves a long lasting flavor of (Noble?) hops. Light body but not watery. Medium+ carbonation. O: a fine, light feeling, light colored, but quite flavorful pilsner.

2.4
sajuuk (28) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 31, 2012
This beer pours as a light yellow, bubbly clear liquid with a slick minimal head. The aroma is of hops and slightly of hay. The taste is bitter and very slightly salty. This is a light bodied beer with a slightly watery texture, some carbonation and a mainly bitter finish. Overall I think this is the most ’normal’ of the range from this brewer.
