Best before: 10/05/2013
Consumed sometime in November and reviewed from notes.

Appearance: The appearance is fairly typical for a pilsner - a clear, pale golden body topped by a large white head. The head lasts quite well and leaves some nice lacing as it recedes.

Smell: The nose is quite simple, but clean and quite pleasant. Notes include: Pale grain, a light lemony note, some grass and a little sweetness.

Taste: As with the nose, the flavour is simple yet clean. The finish displays a solid bitterness and is lightly dry. Flavour notes include: Pale grainy malt, grassy hops and a hint of honey sweetness.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, with a medium-high level of carbonation.

Overall: Flensburger Pilsener is a nothing mind blowing, but it is clean and refreshing and perfect for a hot summers day.

Dense foam dissipates fairly quick. It smells grassy hops and malt secondarly. Medium carbonation with tiny bubbles. Pilsener true to its kind. Bitter taste well balanced. Not so dry finish enhances drinkability. Overall a good beer, reliable but with no thrills.
