Poured a pale yellow with a one finger white head that dissipated quickly. Nose was faint of cereal and malt. Taste followed the nose with a bit of hop bitterness on the finish. Moderate light body and moderate carbonation. Rather unremarkable.

12oz unfiltered and unpastuerized version on draft advertised "delivered overseas in 100% temperature controlled shipping, this is German Pilsner beer at its finest and freshest."

Slightly cloudy, straw-yellow body with active rising bubbles floats a proud 1in head of tight white bubbles that settles to a persistent 1/16in cap and leaves artistic lacing.

Cereal aromas with a hint of spice blend into the flavor seemlessly.

Mouthfeel is light with no hop, or carbonation bite. Crisp and clean.

Overall this clearly beats the skunk out of a green bottle.

11.2oz can with a code of L 140 9 (May 20, 2019?) - opened on 8-18-19.
1"+ white head on a clear, clean straw golden pilsner. Long lasting head and fresh, foamy lacing.
Floral and grassy hops with a hint of bready pilsner malt. Nice noble nose.
Sweetish malt and a hint of spicy hops. Mild in flavor.
Light body and medium carbonation. Would like crisper, hoppier, and slightly more carbonation for the style.
Drinkability is high.

From the can, it pours a clear golden color with a modest white head, which eventually diminishes to a robust ring and leaves lacing. In the nose, a touch of hops. In the mouth, nicely hoppy and light malt. Nice!

11.2 oz. Can

Funny story: I live in Keene, NH and Einbeck Germany is our sister city....o.k maybe not funny.

Clear golden color, Mild carbonation, white foam, classic thin coverage, but constant. Mild lacing.

Honey soaked fresh bready malt flavor, light but smooth feel and flavor. Mild herbs and spices, old world, grassy and herbal hop kick that is pretty much spot on style.

A little hazy for a Pilsner. Slight skunk from the green bottle, otherwise Pilsner malt and some floral hops on the nose. Taste is what you should expect from a Pilsner. (German Pilsner) a little malt upfron with a strong noble hop finish. The green bottles are a problem though.

Pours clear, gold in color with 1/4 inch head. Taste is cereal, grain, and grass...and a touch of skunk Light bodied, sweet, with moderate carbonation. Makes for an above average, tasty sesionable German pils. I prefer others in the style, but this is worth a shot.

A buddy of mine stopped by the other day to lay a few of his odds & sods on me and this was among them. I am always willing to give a new Pils a whirl, even if it is a GER Pils.

From the bottle: "Seit (since) 1378".

I Pop!ped the cap on this .33L bottle & began a gentle pour into my awaiting Pilsner glass. Once a sufficient amount had been decanted, an in-glass swirl raised a brief finger of soapy, foamy, bone-white head with modest retention. Color was Straw-Yellow (SRM = > 2, < 4) with NE-quality clarity. Nose had a grassy, slightly skunky Noble hops quality. Mouthfeel was a bit thin, kind of watery. The taste was a bit sweet with a breadiness from the malt to go along with the grass & hay flavors of the hops. Finish was semi-sweet, a bit sweeter than I would prefer from the style, but still a pleasant drink.

Poured from a green 11.2 oz. bottle. Has pale yellow color with a 1/2 inch head.v Smell is of grains, grassy, a bit skunky, damn green bottle.Taste is grains, lemons, malts, a bit grassy, refreshing. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a pretty good beer.

Appearance - light straw colored beer with white head

Smell - skunk, grains

Taste - cereal, grains, cracker, biscuit, hint of lemon

Mouthfeel - medium bodied, higher level of carbonation, slight grain sweetness upfront, some bitterness on the back end

Overall - wished this didn't come in a green bottle, as this is prone to skunking, overall still a pilsner worth a try

Price Point - $ 1.99 /11.2 oz bottle

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a crystal clear light golden color with a small white head. The aroma is a mild hop scent with some grass or grain added. The taste is a rather big hop flavor with some citrus and salt added. A good Pils.

Very nice Pilsner beer. Tried it side by side with the Weihenstephaner Original, and it was a close call. Ultimately Weihenstephaner beat it out in my opinion, but not by much. To be honest, I think this beer is sometimes skunked due to the green bottle. But when tried fresh, this is right up there with the best pilsner's in the entire world.

Green bottle..

Straw gold, 1" head of foam, great lacing.

Grainy-corny nose with noticeable hop bitterness, typical aroma you get from a green bottle=light struck but not severely.

The hops are bitter, grassy. The malt is sweetish, grainy. The beer is more bitter than sweet. Should be an achieves that.

On the high end of light bodied, perfect carbonation.

The brewery makes some tasty brews and this is no exception. Reasonably priced too. I like.

330 ml bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy bright straw color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon, cracker, bread, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness; with a very slight bit of skunk presence. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Nice balance and solid robustness of pale malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Flavors are quite clean with no obvious skunk notes in the taste. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and fairly crisp mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish. Overall this is a good German pilsener style. All around good balance and solid robustness of pale malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth to drink. A pleasant and enjoyable offering.

(bottle code L125652 F03 - poured into a fluted pils glass)

A: crystal clear yellow-gold liquid, faint jade highlights... open, fizzy head on pour, falls out to thin dusting of bubbled atop... no lace

S: lemon peel, mildly sulfurous lager yeast... wet, leaf-like hops... fresh, doughy dinner rolls... overall, mild intensity of aromas - kinda reminds me of Beck's

T: notable malt presence, enveloped in a coat of delicately bitter hops with a leafy, tree bark note to them... lingering, inner citrus (lemon/lime) peel tang and bitterness, perhaps a touch coin-like metallic... toward the end, the bitterness becomes delightfully more assertive, achieving a pleasant (marginally top heavy) balance with the pale malt and faint skunk, before trailing off a bit in the final few sips

M: light-medium, dumpy roundness... beautifully crisp, dry flow and finish even without a hell of a lot of sizzle from the carbonation

O: surprisingly hoppy and nearly fresh tasting despite the green bottle and questionable handling care... I could sell this as a special, however, I wouldn't go above and beyond to recommend

Poured from the bottle into a tulip pint glass. Green bottle.

Straw yellow, and GREEN body. This beer has a green hue? who would have thunk it! A thick and clumpy white laced head, falls slowly, lots of clumpy lacing. Just the faintest of small rising tiny carbonation bubbles.

Slight skunk, a nice smell of honey and grass. Malt sweetness, luckily this isn't too far gone but it's definitely been hit. Too bad, if this wasn't skunked I think there's some real nice qualities that are now fighting for prominence.

Palate seems to match the nose. A nice honey sweetness in the mid palate, with a real solid coating. Not much sense of carbonation either. A good density. Not very crisp though for a pilsner.

Overall, not bad, very easy drinking with a good feel as the best part, just with this wasn't as compromised.

A: Pours a light golden color with a creamy head that fades to bits of lacing.

S: Aroma of grain, some malt and bit of citrus and skunk in the background.

T: Taste is slightly tangy, with a mild sweetness. There is a mild bitterness and a clean finish.

F: Light body and smooth.

O: Another run of the mill German Pils. Would drink again if offered one but would not go out of my way for one.

Third of a litre on draught.

A: Golden, clear, large thick looking head which faded fairly quickly, some lacing clung to the side of the glass.

S: Fresh noble hop aroma.

T: A high in IBU Pils, gave way to hints of honey and finished bitter.

M: Crisp, moderate carbonation.

O: Took something from Jever Pils and Keesmann Herren Pils, which fits as it’s between the two places.

11.2 oz green stubby bottle straw yellow color frothy white head and a patchy light lace. herbal, grassy, clean hop aromas. first taste was slightly sweet then herbal and grassy then strong hops. mouthfeel smooth, light, carbonation is a little light but overall not to bad a beer. higher abv helps make up for less beer in the 11.2 oz. bottle.

Served in a tulip at Novare Res

Has a big big creamy white head the beer is pale golden in color

The aroma is mostly pale malts with a slight hint of noble hops but very slight

The carbonation come upfront and reveals a pale malt and biscuit the taste of hops shows but is not prominent.

Pours pale straw yellow with a big white head. Decent lace.

Initially out of the bottle, there is big skunk here. I either got used to it or it dissipated out of the glass. Some light malt and grassiness too.

Light malt, light grain, and some grassy sweetness leading to an immediate bitter bite. Heavy handed clean bitter hoppiness. It works, but really obscures the malt.

Light bodied, with decent carbonation. A little astringent.

I liked this, but not as much as others. Some clear flaws and balance problems, but not enough where you'd drain pour. I like the clean bitterness of the hops (no pine or citric notes). This was also a little expensive for what I got, quality-wise. Won't pass, but won't pursue.

Appearance- golden yellow with crisp clarity and light white head, nice small bubbles quickly stream the glass

Smell- Faint hops and slight malty and breadiness, not an overwhelming nose

Taste- hmm interesting taste for most pilsners, definitely does lack some some of the bready malts you can get in alot of the style but it is very heavy in hops for sure, finish is a long hoppy and dry finish, flavor is overall enjoyable though perhaps not the most complex

Mouthfeel- very crisp with good amount of carbonation and overall a very dry pilsner,

Drinkability- Overall a decently drinkable and enjoyable pilsener, which was certainly more on the hoppy side for most of the style, it was good with average complexity, a decent example of the style but nothing mind blowing

Pours a pale yellor with medium, foamy head. Aroma is typical Pilsner grains and slight grassy hops. Taste is cereal and sweet malts with only a slight hop bitterness. It's a little watery and has weak carbonation, so it didn't sit very well on my palate. For as much as I love Einbecker, I was disappointed in this one - I enjoyed their Feinherb more.
