FROTHINGSLOSH (7621) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 21, 2017
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bright yellow color with a huge soapy foamy yellow-white head that lingered and left minimal lacing. The aroma was grassy, perfumey and crisp. The flavor was grassy and grainy with a bit of grape. Medium length finish. Medium body. Meh

UPDATED: MAY 6, 2017 Crystal clear straw pour with light typical pilsner bready aroma. Big frothy white head reducing quickly. Very pleasant taste which is consistent throughout. Well balanced. Fine and subtle palate. Creamy mouthfeel. Simple easy drinking no frills quality beer. Transports you to a German ale house.

flying_pig (1544) - SCOTLAND - APR 25, 2017
500ml Keg at Weihenstephaner Beer Hall, Berlin (4.60):
Another excellent beer from Weihenstephan and up there with some of the best pilsners Ive tried, mainly due to the fact that the beer looked good and had an excellent palate; the taste and nose werent bad either but nothing was really a standout from them. The beer was incredibly easy to drink with an excellent balance from the start and some nice sweetness at times that worked well with the subtle bitterness that featured throughout the beer. Its a beer that could probably have benefited from being just a touch stronger, particular with the nose but it was very pleasant from the start and one that Id definitely have again.
