I'm a huge fan of good quality pilsners. So maybe i'm biased. Also, never had this out of glass - only tap from my local german bar. But its a great pilsner.

A - very beautiful pale golden color but not super clear (which is a good sign on quality pilsners). White and light frothy head.

S - wonderful subdued pilsner malt sweetness with a bit of noble hop earthiness and grassiness.

T - I really love this beer. Totally flawless as far as off tastes go (no metallic notes or diacetyl or anything bad). You get a rich, pure, pilsner malt sweetness with cracker followed by a phenomenal woody, foresty, earthy character from the hops. I LOVED the hop character to this beer - just crazy intense yet elegant german noble hop essense. You either love that or hate it. I love that earthy, grassy, flowery, slightly piney essence. Finishes dry and soft with the hops ligering nicely - and you can tell the water used in this beer is so soft soft soft

M- nice texture! light feel, yet seems so full and a bit grainy.

D - off the charts. I could drink this beer all night long.

I loved this beer. If you love high quality pilsners you will love this too. Some beer snobs sneer at pilsners but I find them to be beautiful in their simplicity if done correctly.

I have tried this beer several times at several different places, most of them being World Of Beer.

Apperance: Served in .3 Liter Lederer Pilsner glass, which I was allowed to take home. The beer is a clear golden color with a large light head, which takes a few minutes to disappate leaving a constanct quarter inch head.

Smell: Mild sweetness, hop notes, and a bit of spice.

Taste: Very crisp and clean, flavorful malt notes, noble hops as well, earth/grass notes. None of that skunky flavor you may associate with other pilsners (ie heineken). It has a crisp bite at the end as well, which may explain the alligator logo (are there even aligators in Germany?)

All in all, this is an excellent example of a pilsner and is indeed one of my go too beers. Be aware that it does have a bit of a bite, however, a pleasant one that most should find enjoyable.

L:gives a light yellow color.clear, a decent top of head that stay there for a while.good lacings on the glass.

A: light malts.floral hops and different herbs as spices.i can sense cinnamon in small notes

T&F: starts of sweet and crisp ,the middle are more floral hops dominant.i also sense lemon rinds., I sense some notes of herbs to that are very noticable in the aftertaste, that is the one thing that I was not so impressed with. Else I find this pilsner have a very crisp mouthfeel and and very easy drinkable. Was a very refreshing taste

O: all inn all a good and thirst quenching pilsner that was easy drinking and good. Much better than a lot of other pilsner I tasted.

Lederer Pils has a very thick, white head, a hazy, bubbly golden appearance, and some glass lacing. Aroma is of spicy, grassy hops and soda cracker, and the flavor is of a similar character. Mouthfeel is medium, and Lederer Pils finishes crisp & refreshing.

Poured into a Spalter Pils glass with an initially large head that quickly faded in a matter of minutes. Most Pilseners have heads that are supposed to last much longer and be thicker. The smell is exactly that of a beer which is quite skunked and very similar to that of any other major European brew such as Beck's, Stella, Warsteiner, etc. The taste is nothing to write home about either, but it wasn't by any means terrible and like the aforementioned beers, very easy to drink.

Pours a clear pale yellow. Large amount of head fades in to fair lacing.
Smell is slightly sweet, grassy hops.
The taste is sweet malt. Smooth with some mild pepper and citrus at the finish.

This was on tap at the hotel bar where I stayed in Nurnburg...very basic beer, not awesome, not horrible. Pour was light golden, with a frothy white head. I thought the aroma was reminiscent of rye bread. The beer had a very light mouthfeel, so not highly carbonated. I didn't find the taste very strong...it wasn't watery or anything, but let's say it was very mild.

Started the drinking day at the Nürnberg Altstadtfest (visited on 26SEP09) with a Pils... a 0.3l glass for 3.20EU.

The tall, slender flute was filled with a light golden colored liquid, almost straw like. It was clear, with a steady, fine stream of carbo. Head was marshmallow white, smooth and creamy, lasted well and deposited decent lacing on the glass. Aroma was a tad bready, with lots of grassy hops and a hint of sharpness. Body was not quite medium, with lots of carbo airiness and some prickle on the tongue.

Flavor was light on the malt, with a bit of crackery sweetness present. Grassy hops were quite pleasant, being a touch flowery, too. Lingers quite well on the palate; a solid Pils.
