Poured a bright golden yellow with a frothy white Heavy lacing was present. I was surprised to see that the carbonation bubbles appeared scare and tiny. Slight malt and grain on the nose. Taste is sweet light malt with grass and a bit too bitter on the finish. Medium light body with light carbonation and a bit watery. Not very crisp. This is a bit more unusual than other brands that I have had.

Clear golden color with white head. Aroma is mostly malty with some fusel alcohol. Taste is grainy, malty and bready with a light earthy hop bitterness on the finish. Medium body and carbonation. Decent lager, nothing special.

Surprisingly good/okay for a German Pilsner. Smells like a märzen, tastes okay but the feeling drops a bit with some sudden bitterness in the end. Not bad at all, anyway.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Look: Clear light yellow with a decent white head that quickly dissipates into a ring.

Smell: Bready malt and a little bright hop, but with a slight skunkiness.

Taste: Malt with a bitter backing, but mostly devoid of hop flavor. A bit of straw.

Mouthfeel: Average thickness, high carbonation.

Overall: A somewhat disappointing, generic pilsner.

330mL bottle bb 6/27/19 poured into a tall pilsner glass at fridge temp 4.8% ABV. The beer pours bright, light straw yellow with nearly white head. The head recedes to a cap and leaves plenty of lacing. The aroma is equal parts bready malt and floral hops. The taste is somewhat dominated by earthy, floral hoppy bitterness up front. Towards the middle, a little pils malt shows up and then back to hops with a dry, moderately bitter finish. The mouthfeel is thin bodied, adequately carbonated and very clean. There are no yeasty or off flavors in the taste or feel. Overall, very good. I would prefer a touch more pils malt presence for balance.

Review: 0,33l Flip top bottle of Flensburger Pilsener: ABV: 4.8% vol

A beer that I spotted for sale in my local Aldi. A cheapish 6 pack.

Just love the logo. Its a boat on the sea sailing past a lighthouse. All coming in a lovely brown stubby flip top bottle. Apparently Flensburger have the world’s biggest automated bottling line for flip top bottles!

On pour get a nice golden yellow coloured beer, with a smallish white head that develops. Doesn’t look particularly great, looks just ok in fact. All goes flat very quickly, little or no carbonation. Some light lacing.

A very piercing, and very citrusy smell. The malts are found on the nose, plus the hops and yeast. Ok smell.

Taste, oh a surprise….a very unique taste there, very yeasty. Also very bitter, very hoppy, fuck me.
No, this is fucking horrible, hopped to death. I found it too hard to drink.

Can feel the alcohol, but it is not nice, far too raw, sour and harsh on the tongue. Where are the malts?

Second bottle,
That taste, too hoppy, needs something to balance that strong sharp taste as it is all too assaulting on the taste buds.

No! not enjoyable at all. Sickly. Very bitter. Ok I know pilsners are a little hoppier than regular lagers, but fuck this shite!!! This hoppy style is meant to be a characteristic of a North German Pils, but as they say in England, this is not my cup of tea, definitely not!

330 ml bottle into lager glass, best before 5/10/2018. Pours crystal clear medium golden yellow color with a 1 finger dense and rocky white head with awesome retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big cracker, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, light nuttiness/pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance of pale malt and earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of big cracker, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, light nuttiness/pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate herbal, grassy, peppery bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of cracker, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, nuttiness, pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Great robustness and balance of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; with an awesome malt/bitterness balance, and zero astringent hop flavors after the finish. Moderately crisp/clean finishing. Perfectly clean on lager flavors, with zero yeast notes present. Light-moderate increasing dryness from bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately bready/grainy/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is fantastic. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.8%. Overall this was an excellent German pilsener! All around great robustness and balance of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink; with the modestly bitter/drying finish, never aggressive. Clean and nicely rich malts, balanced noble hops. Getting a bit of Munich malt character, but this was still very enjoyable and a spot on style example overall.

From a thick swing-top bottle, this brew has a golden hue and a frothy white head. The aroma is floral, with a distinct hop scent. The taste is dry and notably bitter. There is also a pale malt undertone that is part of the beer. Firm body and mostly clean. Straightforward beer.
