Fürst Carl Pils

beer in glass with huge head and bottle
Fürst Carl Pils

Brewery: Fürst Carl Schlossbrauerei
Town:
Ellingen
Style: Pils
Color: light golden

Head: white, rocky, lasting

Nose: grainy, light hops

Body: medium

Palate: balanced, grainy, underlying hops

Finish: clean, semi-dry, semi-bitter

Served: from a bottle bought at the brewery

Impression: I was surprised this wasn’t on tap at the brewery but a happy tradeoff for the Märzen. So, it was nice to pick it up in their bottle shop to bring home. Pouring their beer at home reveals their soft character, especially compared to the overly fizzy pours I got there. Good looking Pils with a massive rocky head and some grain in the nose. It’s a bit fuller bodied than your average German Pils but has the typical dry clean quality. I miss the fruitiness of the Helles and of other Franconian Pils but it’s true to form with a clean semi-bitter finish which I could drink more than one of.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
