This Pilsener is refreshing, dry and crisp. It pours a nice yellow tone with high carbonation. Head is high with good retention. I enjoyed this in a hot day, so I find it very proper for thirst quencher. Nice beer, not the greatest but I can drink two or three easily.

Tall half-litre bottle: BBD 15 Feb 14. Bought in a local cheap supermarket (B&M) and poured into an embossed 'Cobra' pint glass at home on 18 Dec 13.

Pale golden, bright and clear, very clean looking: on top a large white foaming head.

A hop bite to the initial taste, some hop esters in the smell, grains also. Better than a lot of the 'mainstream' German lager/pilsners in both aroma and taste. Once into it you realise It is sweeter than a lot of the well known German beers in this style, which is maybe why I've enjoyed it so (my sweet tooth coming through again).

Refreshing and somehow wholesome in it's make-up. Evokes memories of happy times in Nurnberg and Germany in general.

A 500ml bottle with a BB of Feb 2014. Acquired a little while back from my local B&M. The bottle says Pils on the front label, and states that this beer is 'Kaltgehopft'.

Poured into a tulip pint glass. A clear golden hue with medium carbonation. Yields a large head of creamy white foam that lasts for a couple of minutes before subsiding. Aroma of grassy, spicy hops with hints of light malt, pepper and faint fruitiness. More depth than the average macro lager.

Tastes of light malt and leafy hops, with a crisp bitter finish. Notes of grass/hay, subtle spice, mild grain, earthy yeast, a faint fruitiness and a hint of stewed hops. Dry, followed by a piquant bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth and tingly, with peppery hop oils stimulating the palate. Good body for the style, but a shade undercarbonated. Mildly astringent, accompanied by an aftertaste of leafy, grassy hops, yeast esters and faint malt.

Rather nice - a tasty German pils and probably the best bottled version I've encountered over here. Looks good, while the aroma and flavour have a delicate hop character that suits the style perfectly. Decent body; could be more effervescent. The dry-hopping has a discernible impact on the flavour. Goes down all too easily - worth sampling if you come across it.

A: Big soft white head, straw yellow color, almost no carbonation. Pilsners are vibrant not dead. However, the head is phenomenal.

S:Very clean with some grass notes. Correct to style.

T: Grassy grains, some spicy hops, and sweet pilsner malt.

M:Smooth and watery. Dry back finish. no carbonation.

O: Not bad not great. This good drinkable beer. Not the best Tucher product.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: Very very light and clear straw yellow color with a medium to rich carbonation that forms a medium head that dissipates not too fast and maintain a permanent layer of small and compact bubbles.

S: Good aroma, malts and some hops also, with not many defects or incorrect variations such as too much alcohol.

T: Full malty body, very classic not very complicated but very straight as high should be.

M: Very refreshing and easy drinking beer, with a medium lasting ending not very bitter nor sweet with a little dry sensation.

.5L, in Germany, best before 7/30/11.

Standard Pils pour: effervescent, clear yellow-gold, with an above-average eggshell head and very good retention and lacing.

The aroma is earthy, lightly spicy, and of moderate hop dankness.

The flavor is just dandy and clean. This is a well-balanced and well-crafted Pils. Grainy malts combine with a woody-spicy hoppiness and a tea-like bitter finish. The mouthfeel is smooth and soft, with fine medium carbonation.

Well, what'd ya know? Another well-made Pilsner from Germany.

12 oz into a pint

A - Pours a light golden to almost straw color. Head formation is light. Slightly hazy at times.

S- Pilsner malt all the way - sweet but yet grainy and astringent. Is there an easier style to judge?

T - Starts off with the strong pils malt bite. Turns to a more bitter and balanced flavor through the addition of some yeast breadiness. Some of the bitterness becomes overbearing at times. Strong retained pils aftertaste.

M- Light to moderate body. Beer is light, but the carbonation brings it back. Clean finish.

D - Easy and manageable ABV. Smooth drinking. Flavors get a bit wearing due to the strong bitterness at times.

Crystal clear beer with just a touch of yellow discoloration. It looks like lightly steeped chamomile tea. A standard German head rises two fingers in a soapy white tower of foam.

Smell is lightly grainy with some Nobel hops in the background. Weak and watered down but not gone.

Taste is smooth and clean sticking to the Pils style. A stable malt structure with a delicate bitterness to the finish.

Just a simple good clean beer. Why mess with something as perfect as water, grain and hops. Tucher is a perfect example of a Local German Pils. Clean, crisp and refreshing.

Golden yellow, lots of carbonation, and a full, frothy head; everything looks normal except the head, which is much healthier looking than I'm used to; (canned Sept. '07, so this is more than a year old beer); some healthy lacing left

A bit grainy, but not a whole lot of aroma; after it warms, aroma becomes bigger with bread notes appearing

Taste & Mouthfeel
First thing that strikes me are the hops--I can actually taste them! That's especially remarkable considering this is a year old (making me a believe out of cans). In addition to the hop bitters, there's some other bitters either coming from either the mineral content in the water or the yeast; it tastes somewhat sulfury, but not over-the-top or bad like say Heineken; body is light and smooth, with a slightly oily texture; malts become noticeable after it warms

A nice pilsener with character. I will definitely drink it again.

bought in beijing. imported by the same company as several of the other german brews i've had over the past couple months.

500ml can

clear, light golden straw color. decent head soon fades to scarce wisps and a thin ring. lacing is very nice however.

aroma is a bit faint, but you can pick out some noble hops, a subtle maltiness, and maybe bread or yeast.

palate brings a little more flavor. a decent mix of noble hop spiciness and bitterness, with a surprising amount of malt presence, esp. given the light color and muted aroma of the beer. in the end, the bitterness is pretty dry and does have a slight dominating effect on the other flavors. maybe a trace of overcooked veggie or DMS? well, it's just borderline, so not really noticeable unless you overthink it...

feel is ever so slightly watery, but smooth. the carbonation is very prickly, almost overdone, but acceptable, and depending on the mood, can be refreshing, i think.

ok, but not something i'd deliberately look for again

A golden beer with a thin head.

Smell is light malty with a little grainy smell, which reminds me of opening a big drum of barley. There is a slight green vegetable smell in the back.

Taste is light and appears to be mostly pilsmalt, light and a little grainy. The beer has a very minor fruitiness and a little vegetable. Body is thin and drinkability is good. This beer is clean and non-offensive, but nicely brewed.
