look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Straw color; big, white head.
Smell: Some very light grass, hops
Taste: Overall fairly balanced between malts and hops; Starts with a slightly bitter, grassy taste but develops into a more level, perhaps biscuity ending.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium body. Medium carbonation, besides the big head; refreshing but lacks any kind of a “kick”. A rather oily aftertaste.
Drinkability: An OK, refreshing beer but it’s failed to impress me all 3 times I’ve drank it.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Look: Pours a pale straw color, half inch head that lasts about a minute or two.
Smell: Grain, grass, very light citrus.
Taste: Well balanced and clean. Slight malty sweetness comes at the end with a mild hoppy bite. Very drinkable and refreshing.
Mouthfeel: Feels a little thicker than I had expected, but still crisp and light.
Overall: Its a tasty beer. I would buy it again for a hot day, but wouldn't search it out specifically.

330ml bottle. Footed Pilsner glass. Enjoyed on jun´12. Pale straw color. White , rocky, crown shows good retention. Floral, mildy malt, aromas & piney touch. Crispy with subtle citric touch upfront. Clean earthy bitterness lingers into the finish balanced by moderate maltiness. Smooth palate. Light to medium body, lively carbonation.

A: Pours a pale straw color into a pilsener glass with a two finger white head. The head recedes fairly quickly and leaves mild lacing.
Pretty label and bottle with gold foil over bottlecap.
S: Yeasty, citrus and biscuity malt aromas.
T: Crisp, grassy, citrus, lemon, peppery, and slight hop bitter dry finish.
M: Light body with very active carbonation. Refreshing and crisp.
O: Delicious and crisp. Glad I picked this up while in Speyer. Would pursue again given the opportunity. A fine German brew.

Nice one, finishes a bit bitter which I like. Very clean look, taste, and smell. Crisp pils that is a beer produced for the people, by the people - Wurzburg Stadt. Can't find it on tap (zum fass) around here, but the local getrankte markt has it all the time.

Pint, poured into a huge, tall Rothaus handled glass at The Cask Pub and Kitchen, London.

This is one of the best Pilsners on the market (also known as Tannenzäpfle when in small bottles), crisp, sharp and refreshing it really does hit the spot if you are wanting something to brighten up your drinking day. Not sure what sets it apart from other German Pilsners, I’ve had enough over the years: it’s just the whole package I suppose, nothing spectacular or really different about it, it’s just right on all counts when talking about this style of beer. The head does stay longer than most of its competitors, but other than that I can’t put my finger on why it should be put on a pedestal above the rest

330ml bottle bought from BeersofEurope.co.uk

Poured a pale straw yellow colour... slightly off white head (with a hint of grey) poured quite loose and frothy then faded fairly quickly to almost nothing... only the faintest trace of carbonation... some light lacing...

Aroma - Good citrusy and grassy hops to the fore, sweet biscuity and grainy malts, quite peppery, some marzipan notes, juicy fruits (lemons, grapefruits, pears and light mangoes), floral honey, cut wet grass and hay, faint caramel...

Taste - Good blast of earthy, citrusy and peppery hop bitterness, spicy juicy fruits (grapefruits, sour apples, pears), light biscuity malts, some sweet floral honey, grassy, sweet grains, lightly perfumed, quite herbal, some saltiness, light traces of chalk...

Feel - Quite sharp and dry... Light body... An extremely quaffable and sessionable pilsener...

Overall - An excellent example of a Pilsener - as good as i've had... recommended..
