Golden-yellow and bright, with 32 bitter units and quite hoppy compared to most of the other Pilsners our Weihenstephaner Pilsner comes up with a distinctive aroma of hops with a pleasant bitterness. This combination provides a balanced mix and guarantees great enjoyment. Brewed according to our centuries-old brewing tradition on the Weihenstephan hill.

From estucerveza. At lunch, with fried potatoes + eggs + san jacobo. In Teku glass. Probably the best pilsener ive tasted. Super fresh feeling grassy hops and was bottled in 22 Jun. Really refreshing, clean and pretty looking

I love this beer/ Great golden color. Great Aroma. Great flavors. This beer is wonderful. You just can’t beat the Germans when it comes to Pilsners...unless you’re Czech!

Pint bottle with date code of 7164 which means (unless I am mistaken, PLEASE let me be mistaken) this beer was bottled sometime in April 2014.
That’s right. Triangle Wine of Morrisville, N.C. sold me a beer that’s almost nine months old at full price. Well this happens with imports but hopefully not generally to this extent.
Anyway...
Into a Sam Smith Nonic!
A: Light brassy gold color with turbulent carbonation producing a prodigious rocky head of tight white. Excellent retention and lacing
S: Grassy hops on the front of the nose, with a wisp of white bread following. Great smell.
T: Much like the nose, the taste hits the tongue with grassy straw hop notes. Finishes with a balance of bready notes of more sourdough than white. Pretty dry. Delicious.
M: These people are the masters of body, carbonation and mouthfeel. Light silky body with relentless but gentle carbonation. The mouthfeel of this is directly on par with champagne. Excellent.
O: The embodiment of elegance in a beer. Simple, expertly executed and a hallmark of the style.

NOTE: If anyone notices that I have misread the date code please let me know and I will immediately retract my comment.
This beer is still excellent regardless of when it was bottled.
