Poured a gorgeous golden color with a two finger white head that stuck around for almost the entire glass and a wonderful amount of bubbles. An excellent looking pilsner. Scents of crisp lager yeast, grainy malt and flowery hops. A very crisp and clean aroma, a nice classic pilsner scent. Flavor begins with a crisp combination of herbal and floral Noble hops and some nice grainy malt. Moves into more herbal and floral flavors, some more dry grainy flavors and a slight hint of sweet pilsner malt. Finishes dry with a nice hit of floral and herbal Noble hop flavors. Aftertaste is floral and herbal Noble hops. A very nice, simple, one-note, clean flavor profile, just like a pilsner should be. It is refreshing and pleasant. Mouthfeel is light bodied with moderate carbonation and a semi-drying feel. A good, crisp, clean and refreshing mouthfeel. Very true to style. Overall this is an excellent German Pilsner. It is crisp and clean in aroma, flavor and mouthfeel, as the style should be. It isn't complex at all, but for this style that is a good thing, and for a nice refreshing lager it is amazingly well done.

Stiegl-Pils has a thick, foamy, almost permanent, white head, a mostly clear, somewhat bubbly, golden appearance, and very heavy lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet, biscuit, barley malt and grassy hops. The flavor is the same, with a nice, sharp, but not harsh, hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and slick, and Stiegl-Pils finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, and highly drinkable.

Re reviewing this as I happened to receive a can as a gift. Wasn't impressed last time Itried this but wondering how this will grade out with a full review. 500 ml can poured into a pint glass.

Appearance - Clear dark golden color that is rich looking as far as pilsners go. Few effervescent bubbles and 1 + fingers of head white head with pretty good retention. Very golden color is worth reiterating and some sparse lacing is left around the glass.

Smell - Grassy notes, some grain, aromatic yet subtle. Pretty good for a Pils.

Taste - Clean and refreshing, some light grainy flavors that don't linger on the tongue through to the aftertaste. Clean but a bit bland by Pilsner standards.

Mouthfeel - Low carbonation, medium bodied and very nice in the mouth overall. Good feel.

Overall - Note a bad pilsner, but I don't see how this is vastly better or worse than most. Although in retrospect this was better than I had remembered it.

A: clear gold, 1/4" white head w/ no retention - disappears almost immediately... nifty-looking art deco style label.... dumb green bottle

S: immediately strikingly similar to Heineken.... champagne-like aromatics.... old grain, oxidation.... typical honey-ish malt aroma from older Euro lager bottles

T: as expected.... mild sulfur overtones.... oxidation not as bad as anticipated.... healthy pop of hop and carbonic bitterness up front, lasts part way through the aftertaste.... lightly grainy-sweet.... overall, dominated by yeast character, champagne notes

M: really clean, moderately dry... some residual slickness, film left on palate.... mild effervescence

O: all about the bottle label? i don't know why you'd want to drink this otherwise.... tastes like Heineken or any other similar pale Euro lager
