Hazy golden color with floating particles. White foamy 3 finger head lasting around 5 minutes. Strong legs with subtle activity.

Faint aromas and flavors of grains with floral and herbal spices. Sharp and crisp taste of pleasant bitterness.

Light slick body with some nice carbonation. Well intensified but short finish, ending with slightly dry bitter mouth coating.

Overall : Average pilsener that is slightly too watery and lacking in flavors.

I was recommended this by one of the guys who works in the local beer store. He told me he had this in a gas station in Belgium. I decided to give it try and was blown away. It pours a light yellow with a foamy head.
It is refreshing, and almost feels hydrating.

16.9 oz can from Whole Foods. Pale golden yellow with a foamy white head. Taste of sweet cereal grains and freshly baked white bread up front. Floral hoppiness along with a grassy backbone takes over. The carbonation is lively. The body is light with a dry finish. The flavor is well balanced, creamy yet crisp and clean. An exemplary pilsener.

If BMCs tasted like this I might not be so into craft.

16 fl oz. can, with no apparent canned on date or freshness information on the can. Acquired a single can of this stuff as part of a mixed six pack at the local Binny's.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - It pours a pale golden yellow body with one and a half fingers of foamy white head with nice staying power that leaves behind excellent scattered webbed lacing. Looks very nice, considering the style.

S - A fairly one dimensional, sweetened grainy aroma. Corn, wheat, & husky.

T - Taste follows the nose - sweetened grains / corn / husks, with a touch of bready pilsner malt, crackers, and a faint herbal hop presence.

M - The feel is crisp, smooth, grainy, and clean. Light-bodied and easy drinking.

Overall, an average, albeit very drinkable representation of the style from Stiegl. I'm more interested in their radler creations, but this one is worth a look as well.

Purchased at the LCBO for just under $3.00 for a 500ml can. Served at 4deg C in a draught glass.

A- Opens well and pours a small head that is gone in 30sec. Medium gold color. Clear

S- Has some goodness here. Lots of malt. Fairly hoppy for a German pilsner

T- Has a bit of bottom end flavor. Not a Bud but close. Has a body that can stand up to a nice BBQ hamburger so that means the malt can stand on it's own. Not a lot of hops though but this is not a beer for that. Pilsner's are not my thing

M- Has a bit of creaminess to it that is enjoyable.

O- Pretty good but will only buy if North American beers like Bud or Millar are only available. Too expensive for what it is takes down the overall rating as well.

Food Pairing

This nice little beer went well with..... BBQ hamburgers. Nice regular ground beef no spices BBQ'd slowly watching out for those nasty flame ups.

Enjoy

Clear yellow colored beer with a smallish white colored head.

Smells mild and of hay with a floral and fruity hop aroma. Mostly I get saffron and herbs.

Starts out malt and yeast with a grassy aftertaste. Medium level of bitterness the grassy hop gets stronger as you drink it. Basic Pils taste it hit all the right points.

Mouthfeel is OK.

Overall a good solid pilsner that is certainly worth a try.

Crisp, light clean pils. I keep these for a warm day and my BMC pals. Never disappoints.
