Ahhh yes... Licher, my second all time favorite Pilsner in the world.... behind Eichbaum.
I cant even count how many cases of this beer I have drank over a 4 year time period in Bad Naughiem.
Found only in the Giessen Germany area, this Pilsner will go down smooth one right after the next... all night long.
At first, it might not seem carbonated enough, but half way through the first bottle, you soon realize it has a nice clean, crisp, refreshing taste, and the carbonation fits it perfectly. This is a typical German Pilsner, with a slight twist of a grassy type hop flavor that you will not taste anywhere else in the world. Best served at room temps or cool at around 45 degrees. HIGHLY DRINKABLE and a must try for anyone visiting Germany. and as I've said so many times at the local bierhaus, Ich liebe Licher Bier!!!

I have several of these whenever I visit my girlfriend's family in Hessen and am now a confirmed fan. To begin with, it's a good looking beer - a nice pale straw colour, a solid white head that stays till the end, and lots of lacing. It has a definite fresh, herbal aroma and taste and a very refreshing hop profile. There's also a certain something in there that I can't quite pin down but it's head and shoulders above the standard German commercial pils you see everywhere (Beck's, Warsteiner, Krombacher etc.). This is by no means the boldest tasting beer I've ever tried but it's an excellent example of the style and a cold one on a warm summer's evening is very hard to beat.

Drinkability is the key here. Having drunk several truckloads of this excellent beverage I can say it is legendary to all us boys that swam in it while serving on the Rock.

Details....use the proper glassware. It is delicate with beautiful lacing in a proper glass. Fill the mouth and drink it down, don't sip it. This is German beer at it's finest. Light, refreshing and again drinkable. Drinking just one is a sin.

Lastly, this is again German beer and truly should be enjoyed from a tap. This beer is from the Hessen state, Frankfurt area etc.. Go, find it and then you will know the truth. Licher IS one of the finest beers made. Ich liebe Licher Bier!!!

Catch up rating from notes, 2012: 500 ml Bottle picked up in Giessen area. Pours out out a clear, pale golden, with nice frothy head. Aroma is sweet malts with a bit of hoppy character. Taste is more of the grains, mildly sweet with a beautiful hops bite at the finish. Classic pils, and a tasty one to boot.

Clear straw color with white head. Aroma has the typical german bread and slight honey sweetness. Taste starts slightly sweet with a light honey flavor but finishes more bitter. Not as bitter as other pilsners though. Body is not really to style, it's medium and has a soft feel and carbonation. Not your typical pilsner but it's not a bad beer by any means.

Drinking this Licher Pils out a a one liter stein in a Biergarten outside of Frankfurt. Pairs well with fleischwurst, potato salad and a few shots of Jaegermeister and berry schnapps. Prost.

Appearance: A light golden color, with a white head.
Aroma: A non-distinct beer smell.
Flavor: A light malt flavor with a lightly carbonated , harsh finish.
Overall: This a “run of the mill” commercialized brew. The harsh finish is the “deal breaker”.
