Brown 33cl bottle, best before May 2009, drank Jan 2009.

Poured into a Veltins Pilsner tulip (twice).

One of the clearest pilsners I've ever seen, very, very pale yellow, not even enough colour to call it golden. The fine looking white head that sat on top after each pour soon faded to lacing and wisps, shame.

Odourless, and I mean odourless. Even as the beer warms, no aromas could be found, gets my standard pilsner/lager score of 3.

Typical Bavarian pilsner feel and taste, clean, crisp and refreshing. Pilsners are not supposed to have strong flavours that knock you about and this one is no different. It does however keep it's charactor throughout the drink, I mean it doesn't go all metalic, or tinny and the last sip is as good as the first with no nasty aftertaste.

One of the better Pilsners I've had.

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.

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.

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

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Yellow-gold color. White head, fairly thin but persistent. Bubbles rising from all over the bottom to the top (in many vertical columns).

Smell: Strong hoppy, grassy smell.

Taste: As in smell, with a non-piercing bitterness felt mostly at the back of my mouth, in a rather ..."mellow" background.

Mouthfeel: Fuller body than what I'd normally expect from a pils. Just a hint of a pinch to keep things interesting. Slightly bitter towards the end. Mostly refreshing but with an attitude!

Drinkability: You want more of it. A refreshing pils with a medium-full body that makes you think you need one more to quench your thirst.
