I drank this from the bottle into a mug in Weisbaden.

The beer pours a light clear gold with a big nice white head with gold retention and lacing.

the aroma is light hops.

The taste is very light with hops, but some water.

The mouthfeel is light but its very drinkable.

Was a gift from a friend that I found quite refreshing, didn't have a lingering bitter note just a little on intake. The head was medium size white foam with a short duration. I would have again which for me is a lot, I'm a stout kind of guy but this pilsner was remember able.

Poured from a .5L Swing top to a pils glass the liquid is light gold, or not quite that dark with mild carbonation. The head is a bit small and the carbonation is a tad off yet is shows very nice lace.

The smell is sharp and hopy, bready.

The taste is ok as well a good pils mostly bitter.

The mouthfeel is ok nice body but the carbonation could be better.

The drinkabilty is ok I really wanted to like this brew more but it comes up just short of that in each catigory.

Bought in Spangdahlem AFB, Germany.

Brought a rack of this to Paris with a few buddies, didn't have a glass to pour it out in.

Smells of peppery lemony flowery goodness. For some reason I kind of like the smell, even though I know it's nothing special.

Has a bitter taste on the back of the tongue
and a Sour finish with hoppy tones the entire way through.

The mouthfeel is very thin with not much going on.

Overall a drinkable beer, no regrets bringing the rack of this to Paris.

Had this over lunch in a little tiny corner restaurant/hotel i Stutttgart. We were the only people in the place, but it made for a pretty pleasant experience.
It poured a little darker than expected, but still a golden yellow color with a medium white head.
Very mild hoppiness and almost no malt. Not much going on
The taste was grassy and floral with very mild malt if any, and a little hoppy. Nothing special here.
Light bodied and although refreshing and crisp, nothing to write home about.
Overall pretty mediocre.

For this beverage to be called "Meister" Pils is an overstatement. The aromas were a little bland, but detectable with lemony hops and a freshly mown lawn character.

The appearance was a little dull too. The head was a little thin from the get go, and dissipated quickly to thin lacing.

The taste wasn't too bad. Just a typical lemony hops character with a decent malt balance.

Overall this is a decent beer, but not a master of sorts.

Deep gold color, white fluffy head, a lot.
The smell is very light, light hop, and light camomile.
Average dryness, and average bitterness, delicate and pleasant hop. Malt base.
Anyway, drinkable.
Light to average in body. Herbal aftertaste, average bitterness, lightly pungent.

BB 09-09-05. Great and overwelming head, snowwhite and thick as cream with a beautifull and clear golden brew underneeth. Nose is fine also, for pils very malty but also green from hops and lilte almond note. Taste is dry as a pils should be, litle empty before a good and plesant bitterness comes in that is little hanging. The emptyness of taste hurts mouthfeel litle but is still more then OK. Good sessionbeer that's plesantly drinkable and has a fresh note.

3/5  rDev -7.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Clear golden color with a small white head.

Smell: Hoppy smell

Taste/Mouthfeel: Some what balanced flavor between the malt and hops, with the hops winning out in the end. The aftertaste is full of hops, but isn't overwhelming. The mouthfeel is thin with lots of carbonation.

Drinkability: This is a truely average brew. It is neither smooth nor harsh. It is neither well balanced nor does it let either the malt or hops take a prominent position. In a way this beer might be more of a Munchen Helles than a Pilsner.

Brown flip top bottle that when popped emitted a wonderful tettanger aroma. Poured a clear medium golden with a frothy head that didn't stick around too long. It was crisp, clean and refreshing, but almost a medium bodied finish. It is apparent that this is high quality and follows the purity laws. SUPERB
