Wolters Pilsener Premium (green USA bottle) has a thick, frothy, white head, a bubbly, golden appearance, and moderate lacing. The aroma, which was not at all skunked, is of soda cracker and grassy hops. Taste is of sweetness, cracker, and grassy hops. The mouthfeel is medium, and Wolters Pilsener Premium finishes crisp, clean, and refreshing. RJT

Bottle. Pours a clear yellow. Fizzly head. Bleach white. Smell is skunky, bready and yeasty. Flavor is the same. A skunky import Pils. Like a slightly more dedicated Stella or Heineken. I have to admit that it is maybe a bit pleasant. Sometimes a green-glass Pils hits the spot. This one did a little bit. Light bodied. Heavy carbonation. Watery. Not much lingering aftertaste. It is what it is.

Pours clear gold color with a 1 finger white head that faded and left decent spotty lacing. Smells of corn, floral hops, light caramel, lemon zest and light grains; typical pils nose with the malty sweetness cut by the hops which add good balance. Tastes like it smells with floral hops, caramel, lemon zest, light brown sugar, wheat bread, corn or vegetables and light grains; light, basic and easy to drink, this was thin and watery and a nice German session brew. Price point made this better overall since this pint plus bottle was only $1.50.

Can data: P17.09.14 03:32 (canning date/time?) E17.09.15 (best-by date?)

Clear, golden color with a thin, lasting, white head; lots of slowly rising, fine carbonation bubbles; spotting clumps of foam adhering to the glass. Mild cereal grain and dry grass aroma; bread crust. Pretty decent pilsner flavors-light, warm malt grain character with a well-balanced yet pronounced hop bitterness. Medium body with a mostly dry finish; crisp and clean.

A solid though unremarkable pilsner.

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #69 (October 2012):

Not half bad, unfortunately that means this beer lands in the middle of the pack and it is a pretty big pack these days. Flavors did not come off as fresh, very cooked as many green bottled imports can be. This beer seems to have lost something on the way here. As with their Fest-Bier we’d bet that from the source is substantially better … perhaps a night and day difference.

STYLE: German Pilsner
ABV: 4.9%

LOOK: Golden straw hue, great clarity, sufficient head

SMELL: Herbal, grassy, faint lemongrass, bready, cooked breakfast cereal

TASTE: Very smooth, nice crisp snap, modest hop bitterness, herbal, mineral, creamed corn, bready, leafy, quick dry finish
