Poured this 12 oz. brown ceramic flip-top bottle into a plisner flute. Bottle was dated 7-10-06. Pop-gun "pop" when opened.
Body was a crystal clear pale golden-yellow. Head was very tall and required waiting a few minutes in order to pour the remaining beer into the large glass.
Smell was of crisp, clean grains. Leafy hop aroma. Very appetizing. No skunkiness.
Taste was sweet, rich malts and raspy noble hops. A great combination and an awesome pilsner representation. Bitter, crispy, dry finish.
Mouthfeel was smooth and rounded, yet zesty and scrubbing at the same time. Medium carbonation. Very nice, what I hope for in a Euro pilsner.
I am sad that I only purchased one. Extremely drinkable, perhaps my new favorite pilsner. I will search for this one.

This is one of the best German Pilsners that I have ever had and I have had a lot of them. Overall smell is clean with some herbal hops mixed in. The taste has a lot of flavor and with herbal hops that bitter it up very well. Very balanced with a malty sweetness but I really like the hops. Overall hop profile makes this beer an amazing German Pils. One of the best I have had and I don't think that it gets the respect that it deserves b/c most reviewers don't get it fresh. Try this one.

After trying hundred if not thousands of beers from all over the world, I have noticed that certain countries/regions do certain styles better than almost everyone else. In my opinion, the Germans do the pilseners best, and this is one of my favorite German pilseners.
Pours a lovely yellow with a thin white head with the smell of any and everything you would want from a pilsener. In taste, both hops and malt are extremely prevalent yet balanced and the carbonation is medium which compliments the balanced ingredients quite well. Mothfeel is maybe a bit too thick and smooth for a pils, but even though it is the beer's worst quality it is still quite good.
Been drinking this one for years and I still get excited when I get my hands on this one.

11.2 oz. bottle poured into pilsener
(01.04.15 best by date)
L: clear as water, light yellow, very pale with a thick marshmallow of a head, over 1 inch of pure white that sticks and laces and is making me tear up -- THIS is a beer! bubbles continue to cascade up through the column and keeps a thick skin on top ... so much foam. not a hint of amber.
S: grain ice cold; a hint of grass; opens up into some nice bready malt notes as it warms
T: perfect balance of sharp hop bite and sweet bready malt ... very green grassy spicy hops; lightly toasted barley -- really tastes good even when ice cold (taste is there before the nose opens up)
F: perhaps just a hair light, watery ... otherwise, fantastic -- plenty of carbonation and enough weight
O: those German purity laws rock! LOVE this brew, and while it's just a twinge over-priced, this brew is going into my permanent rotation. it's simply what beer should be about -- no gimmicks, nothing tricked up or blinged out, just water, barley, hops and yeast in perfect concert

It is my third beer Flensburger, I enjoyed it after humiliating to caifanes in sudden strike. In the appearance theres a brilliant golden color, thin head of foam that look like cotton; the smell is citrus, some essences of orange and plum; in the taste, first is sweet malt with an earth hoppy end, very tasty; the mouthfeel is bitter and sweet, with a ligneous of wood, very refreshing, body and medium gasification; in the drinkability is the best flensburger than I have tested, good to enjoy with food or alone.

Appearance: Clear, pale yellow. Copious amounts of carbonation are present. Thick crop of bleached white head. Lacing is great. I'd give this an even higher rating in this category if the color was more "golden" in nature.
Aroma: Biscuity malts. Doughy malts. Herbal and floral hops. Nice blend. I like sniffing this one.
Taste: Solid bready, biscuity, crackery like malt base. This is speckled with pleasant spicy, herbal, hay-like hop qualities. Nice combination of hops and malt.
Mouthfeel: Solid level of carbonation. Gives a good "scouring" of the palate. Medium-full body. Alcohol is unnoticeable.
Drinkability. I find great pleasure in finding new (to me) examples of good pilsners. And this is one of them. This would be great with a variety of foods as well as on the back patio on a hot summer (or spring) day.

Pours a golden straw, as clear as an unmuddied lake of deepest summer. Dense white foam fills the glass, then gradually settles to a solid rocky head that forms big sticky patches of lace. Saaz and hallertau nose with a pilsener malt background -not very strong- but a nice honey aroma comes through as it warms. Pale and crisp pilsener flavor that hints at sweetness. Spicy saaz and noble hop bitterness in the aftertaste with a surprising lack of dryness; these flavors remain strong into the finish but never become overpowering. The carbonation is mild and the body is thin, making it very easy to swig on.

Got this cause the bottle was foxy as all hell. Clear golden color with a big rocky white head. Leaves a lot of lacing. Smells "noble." Tastes creamy with a noble hop finish that gives it a nice dry finish. Enjoyed this one. Should try their other beers.

Poured into a small stein glass. Crystal-clear straw-gold color with lots of fine bubbles and a huge, frothy head. Aroma is faint at best, just a light grainy malt. Excellent flavor, though. Good initial malt, with substantial bitterness and a delicate floral hop flavor. Very dry finish. Light bodied.
Except for an unexceptional smell, this is a very good German pils, on the bitter end of the spectrum.

Another pleasant surprise in my mug tonight. This pils pours a very pale golden color with white head. Nose is clean with some herbal hops in there. Palate offers a nice dose of flavor though with herbal hops that bitter it up nicely, balanced with a gentle malt sweetness. Overall hop character makes this beer what it is. No skunk in the bottle either. Extremely drinkable.

Flensburger Pilsener has a thin, white head and a hazy, yellow appearance, with some lacing, streaming bubbles, and little brown flecks floating about. The aroma is of sweet, cracker, barley malt, and the taste is similar with some paper and a nice, fairly strong hop bitterness in the middle-to-end of the sip. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Flensburger Pilsener finishes crisp, clean, easy drinking, and mostly dry. Overall, this is really nice.

The beer poured into the glass clear pale straw with a white frothy head which lasted very well to lace the glass.
The aroma was malty. The malt presence even had a fruity aspect of golden raisins. Some light spicy hops were notable.
The flavor was malty with a crisp lightly spicy hop presence. The malt was balanced by a strong bittering, but still came off with a raisin depth of character.
The finish was dry with lasting spicy bittering long and growing stronger into the aftertaste. The body was medium with a moderate carbonation level. Quite a crisp and drinkable beer, a nice malty presence and a strong hop backbone.
12 ounce flip top bottle.

A beautiful pilsenser pale yellow with a two finger fluffy white head. The head lingered nicely and left a thin layer of foam after several minutes.
The smell is sweet and bready.
I really like the taste, a slight bitter start with a mellow smooth finish.
This is a delicious easy-drinking beer. This bottle from my regular trading buddy and I would consider picking up a case in the future.

Faintly sweet aroma full of pungent spicy and floral hops. Big, fluffy, bright white head left fine strands of lace. Transparent, pale golden beer holds clouds of briskly rising bubbles. Taste is full of tangy floral hops with a mild bitter bite throughout. Lightly sweet and fairly crisp beer. Mouthfeel is light, but the hops keep it from getting too watery. A delicate, refreshing Pilsener.
