Picked this up at Top Hops last week, not having a Pilsener in a long time and never having a beer from Stieglbrauerei before. I almost thought that this was a European Light Lager when I saw the green bottle but thankfully, this was much more solid, normal-smelling, and easier to enjoy than any beer of that style and this turned out to be a great example of how crisp and hopped a good Pils should be!

The pour to this was a nearly-clear straw hue with a moderate amount of head and just a bit of lacing. Not a lot of aroma here but the taste more than made up for it. Lots of grass, straw, and lemon with a bit of sourness in the back. Somewhat bready but not as full as a Dortmunder or as starchy as a Macro Lager or mass-market beer, but the finish was crisp without being cloying.

I never considered a beer of this style to be one for a long session but this would have fit that bill perfectly. The carbonation was just right and there was just enough of a floral and earthy feel to this to keep it light while never feeling watered-down. This was a great example of the style and maybe the best beer that I've had out of a green bottle in quite a long time.

A-Pours a straw color with a fizzy white head that dissipates quickly leaving a thin layer of foam.

S-skunky, malty, grassy-like Noble hops

T-Grassy hops (Noble) and some caramel, with a skunky flavor to it.

M-Nicely carbonated, but more on the creamy side.

D-Very drinkable as the flavor is good and it is quite refreshing.

Overally, this is a solid German Pilsener that I would recommend others trying.

Can't get very much more classic than this iteration of a German Pilsner. Tons of head & lace.

Grassy and sort of a clingy mouthfeel; I thought the nose was a little catty, but nothing that would put me off it. So much better than the Grolsch-Heineken business that too often overshadows this stuff.
