3.93/5  rDev +12.3%

11.2 oz green stubby bottle straw yellow color frothy white head and a patchy light lace. herbal, grassy, clean hop aromas. first taste was slightly sweet then herbal and grassy then strong hops. mouthfeel smooth, light, carbonation is a little light but overall not to bad a beer. higher abv helps make up for less beer in the 11.2 oz. bottle.

I was a little scared about the green bottles but I took a chance on a sixer and came out ok,pours a clear straw/yellow with a nice looking head that took awhile to settle,aroma was a little sweet with a nice grassy note that lingered well.Taste was sharp and hoppy very lemony and of freshly cut grass with a firm dry malt backbone.A very nice pils slightly skunked from the green bottle but alot of the nice traits came thru,man I would love to try this fresh or from the tap.

2.7/5  rDev -22.9%

Appearance – Light yellow in color with a frothing head.

Smell – Lovely and light hop aroma that was a little on the musty side.

Taste – This Pils was a little stiffer than most. The hops came across a little too citrusy for my taste.

Mouthfeel – Very fluffy and smooth. This light-bodied Pils felt good in between the cheeks.

Drinkability – The funny citrusy taste, especially at the finish, ruined this one for me.

3.33/5  rDev -4.9%

Presentation: 11.2oz short and stubby green bottle. Bottled on date on the back label.

Appearance: Extremely pale yellow, bright and clear with a thin creamy, sticky pure white lace.

Smell: A near pungent, yet oddly soft, nose of distince Saaz hops. Biscuity grain in the background.

Taste: Smooth and creamy mouthfeel, with a light body and thin texture. Hops are pretty intense with a sharp, spicy, salty, lemony/rind-like character and near puckering bitterness. Light flower flavours. No malt sweetness is perceived. Slight cooked veggie flavour creeps in as the beer warms (DMS) -- hint of adjuncts? Crisp and dry with a grainy feel to it. Finish has pleasant herbal flavours all over the palate.

Notes: I wasn't overly impressed by this beer, but I did like it. It lacks balance in the malt department, and goes big on the hops. Still a decent beer and its hop character certainly stands out amongst the standard Pils on the shelves these days.

Thanks to Dane @ B. United for the sample.

Served in a tulip at Novare Res

Has a big big creamy white head the beer is pale golden in color

The aroma is mostly pale malts with a slight hint of noble hops but very slight

The carbonation come upfront and reveals a pale malt and biscuit the taste of hops shows but is not prominent.

4.13/5  rDev +18%

Pours a clear piss yellow with good fizz and a nice stark white head that lingers quite well by style standards and leaves nice white lacing.

Nose is skunked grain with evidence of euro hops.

Taste is pretty damn nice for the style. A good lagery graininess and crispness takes center stage. There is a noticeable hop presence, although I wouldn't call it strong for the style. A crisp finish, and a tiny bit of dirty malt lick.

Mouthfeel is ideal for the style, maybe a tiny touch too viscous. Carbonation is dead on.

Drinkability is, as is common for the style, where this beer shines. Definitely one that would be easy to slam at the company picnic in july.

Overall a good pilsner, aside from being a bit skunked, and a good representation of the style. One i would be happy to slam in the summer heat, and would buy more of if not for the fact that bitburger is half the price, and a bit better IMO. Although, a nice beverage.

3.65/5  rDev +4.3%

Nearly invisible pale straw, rippled with gas bubbles feeding a meager white cap.
Nose is tinged with sulfur, and laid with white bread and lemongrass.
Begins with a crisp- albeit flaccid- malt assertion via saltines and communion wafers. There is also a wavering vegetal sweetness, like creamed corn. It fades and the middle is brisk and clean, as the hops begin their reign. It's all about saaz, with its clear lemon notes, and duskier grasses.
The body is appropriately light, semi-gaseous, and tight. It's fairly tasty and drinkable. A minor flaw or two mars what could otherwise be a stallion of a pils.
But at the asked price, I'll gladly grab, say, a Bitburger or a Paulaner or a Dinkel Acker every single time, and have a goodly amount of spending cash left over.

4.33/5  rDev +23.7%

The bottle pours a clear gold body with fast rising streams of tiny bubbles that support a short head of densely creamy bright-white foam. The head holds well but eventually drops to a thin, creamy collar and surface covering; and it leaves sheets of lace down the glass. The aroma is distinctly malty with a touch of floral hops. Very nice! Its medium body combines with a very fine and moderate carbonation to create a mouthfeel that starts lightly crisp but becomes moderately creamy and quite smooth as it warms. The flavor displays a rich, grainy maltiness that's well-infused with floral & gently spicy hop flavor (Saazer?) and well-balanced by a firm bitterness. It finishes short and dry with a lingering malt and hop bitterness. Extremely well done! The malt expresses a full graininess - no adjunct is used - and it seems to fall towards the Munich Helles style. It's well balanced but the hops are clear in the aroma, flavor, and bitterness. Well worth seeking out!

Picked up a bottle from the bargain bin at Sam's Quik Stop. Green bottle + bargain bin = classic skunky aroma, right from popping the cap. Poured a clear golden with a flash of a small white head that disappears quickly. Upon further inspection, nose is skunk and a touch of classic German lager yeast. Nice pilsner taste, with notes of yeast, sharp hops, and a touch of lemon. Body becomes foamy towards the back of the mouth. Taste of Rather dry finish. I'd imagine this is a pretty solid beer when its fresh.

4.08/5  rDev +16.6%

Poured form a 12 oz. Bottle to a pilsner glass. The liquid is a cloudy bright yellow with good carbonation. A nice white 2 finger foamy head lasts well, but leaves very little lace.

The smell is a nice and pleasant malt with some hops coming through.

The taste is very interesting, a nice citrusy twang, bready malt but not much bitter until the bite in the finish

Mouth feel is thin, good carbonation, a nice little bite in the finish.

Drinkability is very high, very interesting and a bit more complex then most pils, very easy to drink & refreshing. Prosit MK

3.48/5  rDev -0.6%

Poured from the bottle into a tulip pint glass. Green bottle.

Straw yellow, and GREEN body. This beer has a green hue? who would have thunk it! A thick and clumpy white laced head, falls slowly, lots of clumpy lacing. Just the faintest of small rising tiny carbonation bubbles.

Slight skunk, a nice smell of honey and grass. Malt sweetness, luckily this isn't too far gone but it's definitely been hit. Too bad, if this wasn't skunked I think there's some real nice qualities that are now fighting for prominence.

Palate seems to match the nose. A nice honey sweetness in the mid palate, with a real solid coating. Not much sense of carbonation either. A good density. Not very crisp though for a pilsner.

Overall, not bad, very easy drinking with a good feel as the best part, just with this wasn't as compromised.

3.03/5  rDev -13.4%

11.2 oz GREEN bottle from the coop for about $3.50.... poured into my Sam Adams shaped glass.

Short lasting head left big bubble lacing atop a very pale yellow brew.

Aroma is spicy and metallic hops .. bready.. and possibly skunky.

Flavor is bit metallic bitterness with pronounced pale malts.. big metallic finish with alot of skunk in the middle.. reminds me of a green bottle Beck's. Too bitter with not enough middle ground.

It's bad when the best compliments I have for a beer is the Mouthfeel.. good for the style and perfect carbonation..

Really nothing great.. I don't know if it is the green bottles.. but this one is funky and borderline skunky.. and has an aspirin metallic overtone that is impossible to overlook.. I would love to try it fresh.. but this one is not something I will ever buy again in Boise.

3.9/5  rDev +11.4%

Clear straw yellow under a dense, pillowy white head. Smells of clean, spicy noble hops and grain. Very crisp and grainy - true to style all the way through. Medium-light and crisp.

Nothing wrong with this pilsner...clean, crisp, and refreshing, the way it should be.

3.75/5  rDev +7.1%

appearance: The pour into the pilsener glass creates a .25" white head that soon recedes. The beer is a somewhat hazy, golden hay color.

smell: The light pilsener malt gives just a little hint of sweetness, and notes of light, bready grain. A floral, moderate noble hop aroma is also present.

mouthfeel: The carbonation is on the lower end of the high range, and smooth. The body is a moderate light.

taste: Bready grain, a touch of light fruit sweetness, and a moderate hop bitterness for balance. Bitterness lingers along with some grainy notes, finishes dry.

drinkability: A pilsener should have at least good drinkability by nature, as this one does.

The bottle was part of a "German Beer Hall Tour" mixed pack I received from my dad for Christmas.

App: Golden, very bubbly, nice head.

Smell: Mild, pilsner scent.

Taste: Smooth for a pilsner, not your typical bitter pils. The taste, the smoothness, is what really separates this brew from others.

Mouthfeel: bubbly, but doesn't have that carbonated feel to it.

Drinkability: As smooth a pilsner going down can be.

Overall, this is one of my favorite Pilsners. Einbecker just plain makes good brews. You can't really go wrong with one.

Poured from an 11.2 ounce short bottle a light straw hue with a two finger creamy head. There was very good retention and sticky lacing.

The smell was a strong spicy hop. An aroma I look for in an authentic German Pils.

The taste featured a grassy and lemony twang that blended nicely with the light and crisp biscuity body. Spicy aftertaste.

The mouthfeel was clean and dry.

Overall a superior German Pils. Authentic in taste and aroma.
