Drank this many times over a number of years, normally in the same bar, here on the Mosel: this is a few words from a beer today (21st Sep 2013).

Sat watching the world go by on a sunny afternoon in Cochem Cond: 04 litre glass of Pilsner 'Vom Fass'. Looks as good and inviting as any German Pilsner in it's correct glass: bright, clean and clear, on top a full and lasting head of pure white foam.

Not a lot of aroma: in fact the usual score of 3 I give a non-smelling Pilsner/Lager.

Taste wise it scores better: Mild malt front with a good solid hop centre and finish, crisp and sharp feel to the mouth. Could easily have drank a load more, but a wine session was on the cards, so had to move on.

Nice, clean, and a bit of a sharper after taste for a generic Pils (over here). Frankly, I only grabbed a case as they offered a .5 liter krug (stoneware mug) with the nicely priced kist (case). I am not disappointed with the relatively clean taste, but not a lot of character. The pour does not produce a strong "blumen" (head) with a medium level of carbonation. The mouthfeel is good with a hoppy after taste,... but a clean finish. If on sale, then I'd buy again - I love the krug!! Not too sure this would travel well to North America

Had this on-tap at a local pub in Kirn, Germany not far from the brewery.

The color is a nice golden hue with a full head that lasts well. The smell was a light pleasant grain aroma. The taste had a hint of sweetness and a clean bitter finish. It has a medium body that is clean and refreshing. This is a very drinkable beer. Another nice brew from the Pfalz region.

On tap at the Tyrolean Inn in Ben Lomond. Poured into a nice Warsteiner seidel. Attractive golden color with a creamy white head displaying good retention. Aroma is cereal grains and a light floral hoppiness. Flavor is full for a pilsener but still refreshing and drinkable. Grains and a light sweetness with a vaguely metallic finish and minor bitterness. Solid pilsener.

Kirner Pils pours to produce a decent bright white head, which is about a finger a half thick. The body is typical pilsner of ultra clear and gold body.

Aroma is pleasant with a fresh mown hay quality and huskiness. The typical lemon zest aroma is detectable too.

Taste wise this is more than on par for the style: bitter hops is in the forefront with sweetness in the middle, and then a clean bitter finish.

Crisp light and refreshing is all I can say for this brew, a great sessionable beer!
