Excellent pils from Franken. Received from a friend a 2 liter flippy top growler that was expired. The beer was definitely outstanding due to the appropriate pilsner taste.

How they describe it on their website:

"Unser Spitzenprodukt aus dem Bierdorf Weißenbrunn.
Ein fränkisches Pils mit spritzigem Trunk und betonter Hopfennote."

or...

"Our top-of-the-line product from the beer-village Weißenbrunn.
A fränkisches Pils with spritzy Drinking and emphatic hop notes."

Appearance: It's a German Pils, and looks like all others, which means clear deep golden under a show white head.

Aroma: Pils malt wafts up and hits you strongly from the glass, and a slight hint of grassy Noble hops.

Flavor:
Up front: Quite a nice bit of bitterness mixed with a little Pils malt flavors, feels almost but not quite peppery in spiciness.

Middle: Again, nice bitterness bite, and some tartness with hints of circusy flavor mixed in.

Back: Yet again, a decent amount of bitterness and Pils malt flavors, sweet toasty, some light grass. Nice.

Aftertaste: Mostly Pils malt sweetness and here... hefty bitterness that borders on pepperiness.

Mouthfeel: Average soft but robust Pils feel in the mouth.

Overall: You could call this the herbste or hoppiest beers I've had from the Franken area. It really lays on the hops but I feel it could be stronger towards the Pils malt sweetness. If you like a hoppy beer, not an IPA-hoppy, but a pure Noble hopped beer with spiciness, peppery-ish, a little grassiness, and very robust bitterness, but that still doesn't even go near "over the top" and stays within a gemütlich bitterness zone, and you're needing too much pils malt sweetness, then here's your beer. It's not a Norther German Pils, for it still rounds the flavor and softens the bitterness bite with splashes of bready, toasty, dare I say crackery sweet Pils malt. mmmm, a 4.3 of 5.
