TYIB Goes Global: The Germans

Though we did not have a ‘traditional’ Get Blitzed Day, we did have a Get Blitzed Week. Despite the consumption of infinite litres of bier, we attempted to capture as much information on the imbibed beverages. Below is our collection of insights, stories, and reviews of some of the best beers found in Berlin!

WARSTEINER PILSNER

Beer: Pilsner
Brewery: Warsteiner Brauerei
Style: German Pilsner
ABV: 4.8%

We wasted (pun intended) no time getting started, and our first review was on the plane, courtesy of Lufthansa, member of the Star Alliance. We managed to acquire three of these on our transatlantic flight, in order to truly appreciate this “premium German beer” (well, to truly appreciate how generous the Lufthansa flight attendants are with booze). While perhaps not the best German Pilsner we have tried this month, Warsteiner puts forth a wholly drinkable, well-carbonated beer, with the expected Euro lager yeast and graininess of a German Pilsner. Certainly worthy of trying up on an eight-hour flight.

AIRBRÄU JETSTREAM

Beer: Jetstream
Brewery: Airbräu Munchen
Style: German Pilsner
ABV: 5.0%

TYIB tip #43: If you have a layover in Munich (which is likely if you fly anywhere on Lufthansa–I once had a layover in Munich when trying to get to Madrid), find Airbräu, the brewery/biergarten in the Flughafen München Franz Josef Strauß. Not only do they brew their own beer on site (in the airport), they have a full menu of Bavarian treats and a stellar line-up of beers on tap. The Jetstream, the first beer we tried, is an unfiltered German Pilsner. It had a gorgeous straw body, and was refreshing and crisp, with a robust citrusy hop and grain flavor. This Airport Pilsner was one of the best German Pilsners this month.

AIRBRÄU KUMULUS

Beer: Kumulus
Brewery: Airbräu Munchen
Style: Hefeweizen
ABV: 5.4%

On a mission to try the entire run of Airbräu beers during the extent of our meager layover, the Kumulus, a hefeweizen (wheat beer), was next on the docket. In a rush to drink as much as possible (we do not recommend this tactic before you know what gate you have to run to), we had to drink it on the fly without a photograph or a full review. However, our image-negligence is not indicative of the quality of this beer. The Kumulus is as light, creamy, and fluffy as its namesake, with a clove and banana/bubble-gum presence generally found in hefeweizens.

AIRBRÄU MAYDAY

Beer: Mayday
Brewery: Airbräu Munchen
Style: Dunkelweizen
ABV: likely 5-6%

We sadly had to put this one down pretty quickly, but it was sehr easy! The Mayday, a dunkelweizen (dark wheat) is one of Airbräu’s seasonsal brews, appropriately tapped on May 1st. Brewed with dark barley malt, the taste is a little bit spicy and a lot of bit banana/malts, kind of like a fruity cereal. The medium, low-carbonated feel accentuates this flavor profile. If you find yourself in Munich in the early summer, celebrate May Day with a Mayday. And if you’re not, look out for Airbräu’s other seasonals: Aviator (Doppelbock), Festbier (Oktoberfest), and Krampus (Winter beer).

AUGUSTINER LAGERBIER HELL

Beer: Helles
Brewery: Augustiner Bräu
Style:
Helles
ABV: 5.2%

Whenever I go to Germany, my Nummer Eins  priority is to find the Augustiner Lagerbier Hell IMMEDIATELY. This is one of my favorite German beers of all time, as evidenced by the above photo. In fact, this is one of the highest rated/regarded helles beers in the world. Augustiner is the oldest brewery in Munich (1328!), and has been upholding the Bavarian Reinheitsgebot (“Purity Law”) of 1516 with every beer produced. The Lagerbier Hell is the sublime balance of its three ingredients…water, hops, and barley malt. It’s perfectly carbonated, perfectly balanced, and perfectly incredible. There’s a reason why there are many Yahoo! Answers entries asking, WHO WILL SHIP ME THE LAGERBIER HELL. The answer? No one. Go to Germany.

(After a little research, there appears to be one bar in Philadelphia (St. Steven’s Green) that has it in bottles. Here are the directions: DIRECTIONS TO LAGERBIER.)

https://theyearinbeer.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/beeruse9.jpghttps://theyearinbeer.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/beeruse9.jpghttps://theyearinbeer.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/beeruse9.jpghttps://theyearinbeer.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/beeruse9.jpghttps://theyearinbeer.files.wordpress.com/2012/06/beeruse-copy.jpg

AUGUSTINER EDELSTOFF

Beer: Edelstoff
Brewery: Augustiner Bräu
Style: Helles
ABV: 5.6%

A wee more sweet than the Lagerbier, the Edelstoff is what Augustiner calls an ‘exportbier’ and is expectedly slightly more alcoholic as well (as beers labeled ‘EXPORT’ generally are). Brewed with the “nobelest materials,” the Edelstoff is nearly as amazing as its brother, Lagerbier. The additional sweetness throws the perfect balance, though. Nevertheless, it’s crisp, with a sweet malt and floral hop flavor,  and just a little bit of spice. If you want a taste of Augustiner’s second best, take a trip out to Brooklyn for a bottle, or Valhalla in Hell’s Kitchen for an exceedingly overpriced one.

https://theyearinbeer.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/beeruse9.jpghttps://theyearinbeer.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/beeruse9.jpghttps://theyearinbeer.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/beeruse9.jpghttps://theyearinbeer.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/beeruse9.jpg

BERLINER KINDL PILSNER

Beer: Pilsner Klassik
Brewery: Berliner Kindl Brauerei
Style: German Pilsner
ABV: 4.6%

It shouldn’t be a shock to hear that Bavarian beers are superior to a vast majority of non-Bavarian beers. This is further proved by the Berliner Kindl Pils, a pretty subpar Pilsner produced by Berlin brewery Berliner Kindl. Sure, the 1902 brewery is essentially a fetus when compared to the 700-year old Bavarian breweries, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to purchase the Berliner Pils over ANYTHING made by Bavarian brewers. I will add the caveat that we tried the Berliner Pils while watching Eurovision in Prenzlauer Berg, so maybe we mistook the bitterness of the beer for the bitterness we felt when the Buranovskiye Babushki only took second place. Or, it’s just subpar.

CHIEMSEER HELL

  

Beer: Chiemseer Hell
Brewery: Chiemgauer Brauhaus
Style: Helles
ABV: likely 5.0-5.4%

Chiemgauer Brauhaus is located in the Chiemgau area, which is nestled in the foothills of the Alps and surrounds the Chiemsee lake. Just in case you were wondering, because we were wondering. Anyways, Chiemgauer Brauhaus puts forth a helles to rival the Lagerbier Hell! It’s exceptionally well-carbonated, light, refreshing, and tastes like Germany (i.e., German malts) in a bottle. If I could keep my fridge filled with the Chiemseer Hell, I would. But I can’t, as this might be one of the most obscure Bavarian beers.

https://theyearinbeer.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/beeruse9.jpghttps://theyearinbeer.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/beeruse9.jpghttps://theyearinbeer.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/beeruse9.jpghttps://theyearinbeer.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/beeruse9.jpg

ROTHAUS PILSNER & TANNENZÄPFEL

Beer: Tannenzäpfle Pils
Brewery: Badische Staatsbrauerei Rothaus
Style: German Pilsner
ABV: 5.1%

Oh, meine liebe, Rothaus Tannenzäpfle (which means “little fir cones” in German). Rothaus’ Tannenzäpfle Pils is, hands down, the best German Pilsner. Ever. It tastes like biscuit dough, if it was a sweet, zesty, herbed, pine biscuit. It is downright disgusting just how refreshing and put-backable this little 33cl treat is. It is no surprise that there is a cult following surrounding the gold-foiled beer.

KONIG LUDWIG WEISSBIER

Beer: Weissbier
Brewery: König Ludwig
Style: Hefeweizen
ABV: 5.4%

After walking the depths of the Tiergarten, stumbling upon a small biergarten at the edge of a lake was the perfect context for enjoying König Ludwig’s Hefeweizen. König Ludwig, also known as the “Mad King” and “Fairy Tale King,” is most famously associated today with the construction of Neuschwanstein Castle and the patronage of Wagner. Many associate his madness and creativity with the modern wealth of Bavaria, inadvertently creating a massive tourism industry in the area. Indulge me for a second, but das König also commissioned a partial replica of Versailles, a quirky Wagner-influenced Venus Grotto, and numerous Moroccan and Turkish-themed rooms. Oh! The beer! Yeah, König Ludwig’s Hefeweizen is fit for a mad, whimsical king: it’s rich, creamy, smells like bubble gum, and oozes sweet bananas and cloves. If you’re looking to try it, just look out for a six-pack with an image of The Castle on it.

https://theyearinbeer.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/beeruse9.jpghttps://theyearinbeer.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/beeruse9.jpghttps://theyearinbeer.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/beeruse9.jpghttps://theyearinbeer.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/beeruse9.jpg

ALSTERWASSER (“Oops”)

Beer: Alterwasser
Brewery:
Style: Radler
ABV: –

As most German beers consist of three simple (yet noble) ingredients, we can imagine that beer-drinking life MUST get a little tedious from time to time. Their solution? Dump a number random drinks into your beer. German beer mixed drinks include the Radler (half lager, half “limo” or a Sprite-like beverage), Diesel (half lager, half cola), and a Colaweizen (half hefeweizen, half cola). And then there is what we ordered by accident…the Alsterwasser. Imagine our surprise, thinking we were about to review a fresh German Pilsner. Upon first taste, we almost did one of those comical sip-spit-spray shticks. The Alsterwasser is similar to the Radler, except a Pilsner is used instead of a Lager. Excuse my German, but it was DAS SUCK. Instinctively, I wanted to devise some sort of tourniquet to stop the flow of this sodabeer. But alas, we drank the Alsterwasser anyways, if only to relay just how terrible it was.

VELTINS PILSENER

Beer: Pilsener
Brewery: Brauerei C. & A. Veltins
Style:
German Pilsner
ABV: 4.8%

The Veltins Pilsner is a solid non-Bavarian German Pilsner. More on the bitter end of the Pilsner scale, Veltins is an alternative to its sometimes-too-sweet Bavarian counterparts.

https://theyearinbeer.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/beeruse9.jpghttps://theyearinbeer.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/beeruse9.jpghttps://theyearinbeer.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/beeruse9.jpg

ANDECHSER HELL

Beer: Helles
Brewery: Klosterbrauerei Andechs
Style: Helles
ABV: 4.8%

To be honest, this Helles is pretty unmemorable. It has a thin body with great carbonation, but that’s all that we commented on at the time. Apparently it earned itself three pint glasses, though!

https://theyearinbeer.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/beeruse9.jpghttps://theyearinbeer.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/beeruse9.jpghttps://theyearinbeer.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/beeruse9.jpg

BUDWEISER BUDVAR

Beer: Budweiser Budvar
Brewery: Brewery Budwesier Budvar
Style: Czech Pilsner
ABV: 5.0%

While Budvar is not technically a German Pilsner (it is in fact a Czech Pilsner), it was sorely overlooked during our Pilsner month and we did drink a number of them while dancing to 1970s disco in a 9′ x 10′ bar in Kreuzberg. Budvar (or, Czechvar in the USA…read about the naming CONTROVERSY here), is considered to be one of the best Pilsners in the world, and we’ll jump on that bandwagon. The highlight of BudCzechvar is the unique hop flavor dervied from Saaz hops–it’s piney, earthy, and spicy. These flavors aren’t overpowering, though, and are balanced by the biscuity, doughy Moravian malt. While always better closer to the source, I guarantee that you will not be disappointed if you pick up a 6 of Czechvar.

FLENSBURGER PILSENER

Beer: Pilsener
Brewery: Flensburger Brauerei
Style: German Pilsner
ABV: 4.8%

And last, but not really least, the Flensburger Pilsener. After meine leibe (Rothaus), Flensburger’s Pils is the best German Pilsner this month. It is exceptionally crisp and balanced, with a surprisingly full herbal, grassy hop flavor, tempered with a bready malt taste. While consuming countless Flensburgers didn’t help my ping pong game that night, it did expand my appreciation for German Pilsners.

Sly Fox Pikeland Pils

Beer: Pikeland Pils
Brewery: Sly Fox Brewing Company
Style: German-style Pilsner
ABV: 4.9%

 Serving Style: Can
Glassware: Pint glass
Drinking Establishment: The Old Bay, New Brunswick, NJ
Primary Consumer: Ally
Consumption Companion: Joe from the George St. Co-op

——–

OVERALL RATING:



Sight: Clear straw yellow, with a 1-finger head that recedes rather quickly.

Smell: Sweet, like Gummy Bears, or apple cider, with grassy and metallic notes as well.

Flavor: Not as sweet as it smells.  Mostly the grassy flavor comes through, with a very mild citrus note and a slight hop aftertaste.

Feel: Syrupy mouthfeel.  Low carbonation.

Concluding Remark: I really wanted this Sly Fox Pilsner to taste like a Gummy Bear, but it doesn’t.  Not even a watered-down Gummy Bear.  In fact, it doesn’t really taste like much.  It has maybe a slight taste of cider, but weakly so.  However, as Joe remarked, there’s no strong flavor, but it’s not necessarily offensive.  And it comes in a can, and as the Oskar Blues Brewery tells us, that’s a pretty good thing.

And on second thought, maybe Gummy Bear-flavored beer would be kinda gross.

Brooklyn Pilsner

Beer: Brooklyn Pilsner
Brewery: Brooklyn Brewery
Style: German-style Pilsner
ABV: 5.1%

 Serving Style: Bottle
Glassware: Pilsner glass
Drinking Establishment: The Fant Mansion
Primary Consumer: Ally

——–

OVERALL RATING:



Sight: Clear golden yellow, with 1 1/2 finger off-white head that quickly settles to a thin layer of bubbles.

Smell: Yeasty, sweet, and citrusy.

Flavor: Earthy, almost smoky, taste with a bitterness that lingers in the back of the throat.  Some mild sweetness.

Feel: Light mouthfeel and carbonation.

Concluding Remark: Brooklyn’s take on the Pilsner is no frills.  Although the aroma implies a sweet beer, the taste is more bitter and savory.  It’s nothing flashy, but it’s light and enjoyable.  It’d be a good beer to pair with a meal that you don’t want to be overpowered by your alcohol.

Tommyknocker Alpine Glacier Pilsner

Beer: Alpine Glacier Pilsner Lager
Brewery: Tommyknowcker Brewery
Style: German-style Pilsner
ABV: 5.1%

20120516-232742.jpg

 Serving Style: Bottle
Glassware: Pilsner glass
Drinking Establishment: Kerensa’s Apartment
Primary Consumer: Kerensa

——–

OVERALL RATING:



Sight: Dark golden body with a two finger iridescent white head with sparkly bubbles.

Smell: Berries, grain, and spicy hops.

Flavor: Sweet cereal taste, with flat hops and water. It tastes like a big glass of tap water with a bit of bitter hops.

Feel: Medium body with lively carbonation.

Concluding RemarksTommyknocker’s Alpine Glacier is deceiving–there is very little “Alpine” in this brew. It’s a true American Pilsner hybrid: it takes the simple yet delicious Pilsner flavor profile and douses it with hops. It actually tastes more like an American Pale Ale (although it’s a lager), likely because there’s no discernible presence of lager yeasts or traditional Pilsner malts (like Munich malts) or Pilsner hops (like Saaz or Noble). While it’s fine and drinkable, this is absolutely NOT a traditional Pilsner. If I wasn’t rating this on the style, I would give it a 2.5.  It’s kind of bitter, definitely watery, but if you’re looking for a new take on a Pilsner, I guess you could try this one.

Victory Prima Pils

Beer: Prima Pils
Brewery: Victory Brewing Company
Style: German-style Pilsner
ABV: 5.3%

 Serving Style: Bottle
Glassware: Pilsner glass
Drinking Establishment: The Fant Mansion
Secondary Consumer: Ally
Primary Consumer: James, Ally’s bro-in-law

——–

OVERALL RATING:



Sight: Slightly cloudy golden yellow.  Fluffy white 1-finger head that recedes to a smattering of bubbles.

Smell: James says it smells like a Bud.  Unfortunately, yes, it does have that generic beer aroma.

Flavor: It tastes much better than it smells–a clean flavor of hops, with a bitterness that lingers on the back of the tongue.

Feel: Crisp, with moderate carbonation.

Concluding Remark: This Pilsner from Pennsylvania’s Victory Brewing Company is pretty straightforward–clean, crisp, and smooth, with hops dominating the flavor profile.  Nothing too flashy or exciting going on here, but the Prima Pils is a decent representation of that classic Pilsner taste.

Hofbräuhaus Traunstein Fürstenpils

Beer: Fürstenpils
Brewery: Hofbräuhaus Traunstein
Style: German Pilsner
ABV: 5.1%

 Serving Style: Draft
Glassware: Stein
Drinking Establishment: Zum Schneider, East Village
Primary Consumer: Kerensa

——–

OVERALL RATING:



Sight: Clear, golden body with a huge, white, pillowy head.

Smell: Earthy, metallic aroma.

Flavor: Overall citrus and coppery taste that quickly fades to a watery aftertaste.

Feel: Watery with high carbonation.

Concluding Remarks: I’ll be brief, as I’m out and looking forward to putting this one back with a few bretzn ASAP. Hofbräuhaus Traunstein, a 400-year old brewery in the heart of Bavaria, is impossible to find in the US. Unless you take a trek (ein bissen reise) to Zum Schneider, the best German bar in all of New York City. Zum Schneider is the exclusive provider of  Traunstein in this United States. If you need more reason to visit Zum than simply checking out a rare German brewer in the heart of Alphabet City, let this Fürstenpils do the talking (and you do the drinking). The Fürstenpils style, as explained by the brewers, is a “specialty beer with especially refreshing bubbles and a fine head.” I would have to agree that this Pilsner IS especially refreshing and DOES have a fine head. All in all, it’s a very balanced German Pilsner with pleasant notes of hops and citrus. Traunstein says that this Fürstenpils is “a must for a discerning quality of life.” Yeah, sure. Oh, hell with the snarky comments, this is a solid Pilsner, and I’m going to order another pretzel.

Coney Island Mermaid Pilsner

Beer: Mermaid Pilsner
Brewery: Schmaltz Brewing Company
Style: German Pilsner
ABV: 5.0%

 Serving Style: Draft
Glassware: Pint glass
Drinking Establishment: Mel’s Burger, Morningside Heights
Primary Consumer: Kerensa
Secondary Consumer(s): Lisa, Architect Extraordinaire

——–

OVERALL RATING:



Sight: Cloudy blonde body. Where’s that famed fluffy Pilsner head?

Smell: Some citrus and wheat aromas. Faint waft of Munich malts.

Flavor: It has a generic wheat flavor, with a brief hop note at the end. There’s bit of a sweet spice in it, too, maybe honey and clove.

Feel: Thin, almost creamy, with full carbonation.

Concluding Remarks: Coming off a high from finishing my last final EVER, this beer was not one worth celebrating with, sadly. While a fan of supporting local businesses, I would have rather taken the hour-long subway down to Coney Island and picked up some Russian Baltikas than spend $7 on Schmaltz Brewery’s Coney Island Mermaid Pilsner.

While all in all a balanced brew, it’s like the hop and malt characters cancel each other out and leave behind a fine, albeit boring beer. As the first German-style American Pilsner of the month, it has set a very low bar.

Pinkus Organic Unfiltered Ur Pils

Beer: Organic Ur Pils
Brewery: Brauerei Pinkus Mueller
Style: German Pilsner
ABV: 5.2%

20120502-164809.jpg

 Serving Style: Bottle
Glassware: Pilsner glass
Drinking Establishment: Kerensa’s apartment
Primary Consumer: Kerensa

——–

OVERALL RATING:


Sight: Cloudy, bright, soft yellow body. Upon first pour, there’s a huge white head that settles to a centimeter brim.

Smell: It smells like an explosion of Munich malt with a note of citrusy zest. It reminds me a bit of a Helles, which should be no surprise as this style was modeled after it.

Flavor: It doesn’t taste quite as delicious as it smells, but the Munich malts and light Noble hops are quite pleasant. There are also subtle notes of metallic and lime. Decent flavor at the fore, but there is absolutely no aftertaste. The only flavor that lingers is carbonated water.

Feel: Very thin, almost watery–yet creamy–body, with high carbonation.

Concluding Remarks: Our first Pilsner of the month is a German! So take note of the German characteristics now and notice the difference between it and the Czech Pilsners we will inevitably review. Also, Pinkus’s Ur Pils is in fact a “ur pils,” or in German, an “original pils.”  In this case, the “original” style refers to the fact that this beer is unfiltered, as modern filtration techniques were not part of the original brewing process. Pilsners are not usually unfiltered, so this Pilsner has an uncharacteristic creaminess and cloudiness that is associated with other unfiltered brews, such as the Hefeweizen.

All in all, this Pinkus’ Ur Pils is veryyyyyy easy to drink, but won’t knock your socks off. It tastes like a malted seltzer with a spritz of Noble hops. I’ll give it props for being organic, but I’m not about to go spend another $4 for a bottle. Well. Maybe once more.
