Surprisingly Bamberg-like. Which, of course, is a very good thing.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Bought in a supermarket in Munich central station
L: Gives a clear yellow color with a two fingertip high head that disolves rapidly.some sticky lacings on the sides of the
glass.

S: hops,lemonrinds, hopps and some herbal notes

T&F: Starts of with a fresh and fruity feel with bready notes in the background, gets hoppy in the finish with some nice herbal tones there as well. A long and good bitterness in the finish here,the balance in the hops have been done great. This pilsner have a good bite in the mouth and feels refreshing from the first sip.

O: This is one hell of a good pilsner. Basicaly all i want in a pilsner in this one. Highly recommended. I sure hope i get the chance to find this again

Pale golden blonde with a cap of delicate, lacy white foam. Smells super fresh, grassy and grainy and a little gassy. Spruce, rye bread with caraway, and lemon rind. Snappy and brisk on the palate, with just the right amount of carbonation and bitter, resinous hops to uplift the doughy malts. Just about everything I want in a pilsner.

Bottle brought home from Austria. Poured into a standard pilsner glass.

The appearance is quite nice. The beer is bubbly and golden, almost lemony yellow in tone. The head is gorgeous and enduring. It hung around with me during the course of my enjoyment.

the odors comming from this concotion are the best part of the experience. Clean? yes. Crispy? yes. hoppy? yes. malty? yes. grassy? yes. All of these are meshed together in perfect balance to what culminates with an olfactory orgasm.

taste is less sharp/balanced than the smell but above average nonetheless. The taste is of course bitter but not insultingly so like some American style pilsners. There is a showcase of other flavors that add nicely to the bitterness such as cereal grains, yeast and fruits like pear/apple.

the mouthfeel is sparkling and drying. Drinkability is off the charts.

a tremendous beer. The comparisson between this and other pilsners is night and day. after all, this is some Reinheitsgebot shit that's been perfected over many years.

Cheers to some expert friends in the area for recommending this instead of just going for the usual hell and Edelstoff (both of which I like, too). Had this at the Grossgastatte. As usual, when something is bottle-only, the locals tend to give you quite the precaution!
Pours a standard yellow-gold. The waitress gave me a perfect pour while doing 3-4 other things at once, so I don't think getting a great head is much work for this one.
While I expected one of the maltier pilsners typical to Munich, this one is far closer to the ones I had in Bamberg. Freshly baked bread followed by a lingering noble hop note that fades into just a little bit more malt in the end. Pretty hoppy, and I like how the finish isn't overly abrupt, too.
Don't sleep on this - it's just as good as their other lagers, and depending on what you want, maybe better.
The only real knock on this is that when I did see it, a 12oz bottle is often the same price as a 1/2L of their other beers. I was on a beer-centric vacation, so I didn't really care...but for a local I'd assume this is best purchased at the store.
