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.

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!

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.

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

Bottle from Wasana's. Musty, malty aroma, clear golden in color with nice silky head. Flavor is more malt and bread. slight aftertaste and dry finish.
