Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: aaronh on 02-03-2003

A German-style Pils with pale gold color and good body, this crisp, clean and very bitter beer has pronounced hop aroma and is made with the famous Hallertau hops. Kaiser Pils is brewed with triple decoction mashing. A beer worthy of an Emporer.

Just was not a fan of this one. Reminded me of a low cost beer.

Pretty average pilsner. Has some more bitterness than expected but not bad.

Poured into a pint glass. A light yellow color, just a film of head, lots of carbonation. A real hoppy smell and taste. Tasted orange zest up front with a hoppy profile, the carbonation leaving with a tingle on the tongue and a clean palette. A very hoppy Pilsner leaving a great tasting palette! Wouldn't be my favorite, but I would drink it again.

Very bitter for a Pilsner, recommended if you like the Pilsner from Northern Germany, e.g. Jever. Crisp and refreshing.
