Pfungstadter ‘Edel-Pils’ Pilsner


“The heart of our brewing art and traditionally good. Pilsner for the most sophisticated of tastes: The fine, crisp hops create a pleasant, slight bitterness. A delight for real pilsner fans.”

Glassware: Flute.

Appearance: Fully transparent golden/straw complexion with a thumb of sturdy white head atop. Good retention and lacing as it subsides.

Aroma: Brilliant. About as conventional as they come. Getting a nose-full of the gorgeous Noble hop characters; earthy herbals, mildew, grassy notes, florals and wet hay. The malt profile is super clean and bready…crusts, water crackers and farmyard grains. There’s also a subtle peppery spice to it as well. Superb.

Flavour: It holds a nice dryness, it’s crisp and also super clean. Quite earthy and green upfront with wet hay, grains, herbals and grassy notes which blend with a distinct hop bitterness that carries through the mid. It slowly tapers out and lets the earthy and spicy herbals to do their thing in the finish. Reasonable length on it too.

Mouthfeel: Crisp, clean and dry. Very refreshing, moderate bitterness, mild-moderate body and lively Co2. 4.9% ABV so it screams session-ability.

Overall: Loved it…loved every aspect of it and can’t fault one part of it. The kind of beer we have in the fridge for those times when we want something simple but don’t want to sacrifice flavour. World class stuff.
