  1. Schultheiss Pilsener

    This is the beer proffered by the Berlin infantry brigade stationed in Berlin since 1945 until they left the city it is also admired by tourists from all over the world it is just at the top of German brewed pils golden fresh and satisfying THE TASTE OF BERLIN it is my personnel favourite and I recommend it to all but don’t buy to much leave some for me

  2. Stujago

    Definitely agree with the previous review. It’s a lovely lager. A quintessential German pale lager. Very clean, crisp, smooth and balanced flavours. And most importantly, tasty! Lovely texture and the fizz is great.

  3. Allan

    Highly recommend – nice pilsner with a perfect head if poured properly.

    Tip: pour into a cold rinsed glass (ideally 0,3l size) max for an authentic taste.

  4. John Fullarton

    First discovered this beer whilst being based in Berlin as part of the Army. In my opinion, one of the best beers from Germany and a reminder of 2 happy years spent there many years ago.

  5. Robert Rickard

    Superb pilsner. Highly recommended. Only the Germans can make such great beer.

  6. Andy Nichols

    Tasty smooth balanced pilsener. Not too harsh and very drinkable. Well worth a go!

  7. Jim

    Really enjoyed this. Lovely crisp, dry Pils – can’t go wrong. Recommended session ale.

  8. Marcus Wellings

    Great tasting beer no after taste really refreshing
    Highly recommended

  9. Dean Griffiths

    A really nice tipple of a Pilsner. Smooth and crisp and preferable to the other offerings I’ve had from the Berliner Kindl brewery.

  10. Paul C

    My first beer from the Berliner Kindl brewery.
    Not disappointed.
    A crisp, sharp and beautifully dry Pilsner.
    A smooth and balanced texture with spicy aftertaste.

  11. Christopher Ingram

    This is by far the best beer to be bought in Berlin! Unfortunately it seems fewer places in Berlin are selling it on draft. My wife, who is not a big beer drinker, is like a beer monstyer when we visit Berlin, and now whenever I have it at home. Superb taste, with no after-taste that can be found in too many beers. Goes down too smoothly, lol! If you have never atsted German beer, try this first – it is like the true ‘Golden Nectar’!

  12. Richard Allen

    A classic pils. A lovely balance of bitterness and hops. Nice carbonation and just the right amount of aftertaste. Very drinkable.

  13. Chris

    Light bodied, medium carbonation, lovely smooth, spicy and bitterness throughout. Slightly dry Pilsner but still very nice!

  14. Christine Saunders

    nice smooth easy drinking beer

  15. Paul Boniface

    A lovely pils, light bodied, clean tasting and very easy to drink.

  16. Hew Herbert

    Schultheiss Pilsener takes me straight back to my Army days in Munsterlager German where it was one of the local lagers,light on the palate and drinkable at any time of the day especially with a barbecue complements the food very well I recommend this to try for something slightly different.

  17. Jim Brown

    A great German Pilsner, highly recommended. Order was easy and delivery punctual.

  18. Anthony Hall

    I tasted my first Schultheiss way back in 1972, whilst serving with the Royal Military Police, and stationed in Berlin, the ‘home’ of the beer.
    Whilst shopping on here I saw this beautiful beer for sale, and immediately ordered a few bottles. Arriving a few days later, it was warm, so in the fridge, it had to go. Back in 72, the bottles were the small dumpy the new ones larger and holding 0.5l. The first trial was bliss the bier tasted the same, but a little fizzier, but it went down a treat. This modern-day version is just as good as the original, a really great bier, light and easy to drink anytime of the day, have converted several friends into drinking this excellent Bier. Another order on the way!

  19. John Evans

    I have had many an argument with Schultheiss beer when serving in Berlin many years ago, and she won every time! It is a lovely smooth, refreshing Pilsner with a good head, especially when drunk ice cold, and it is wonderful to be re acquainted with it trough Beers of Europe.

  20. John May

    Just like being back in Berlin except that the bottles have changed shape from short and stubby to tall and elegant. The taste has not changed though – still excellent.

  21. Kevin Flynn

    A very refreshing beer, tastes just as good now as when I first tasted it over 40 years ago. Ordering is really easy and delivery is extremely quick.

  22. Michael Moore

    Another quality bier, every bit as good as those from Bavaria!

  23. Milan Macurak

    Another example of a perfect German beer brewing. Clean and smooth with a nice finish without any aftertaste which I love with Pilsener type of beers. Another one: anytime and anywhere.

  24. Kris

    Fantastic clean and crisp German pilsener

  25. David Davies

    Beautiful pilsner. Brings back lovely memories of my time in Berlin in the 70s. We drank a lot of this beer in the pubs and bars of Berlin.

  26. Barrie Taylor

    New beer tried. Not disappointed, lovely crisp light beer

  27. Jamie K

    A very smooth, clean and refreshing beer. I bought three bottle and instantly regretted not buying more. A well earned reward after a hard days work

  28. Mike Brandwood

    I first tasted Schultheiss in 1967 as a young squaddie stationed in Berlin. The memories the taste brings back priceless, and just as good as it tasted way back then.

  29. Steve Shadwell

    This is one of my favourite German beers coming out of Berlin. Nice, smooth and easy to drink.
    I shouldn’t really be posting this as someone else might buy some leaving less for me.

  30. JL

    Superb example of pils and highly prized. Heavy on the hops all the way through and a refreshing bitter finish that has you reaching for another. Clean, looks fantastic in the glass and a treat. Love it.

  31. Raymond Housley

    A true German beer with a smooth finish and very refreshing without being too sharp like some beers which will be to most tastes. Not bought since 1978 in Berlin and it has not changed, although the bottles are bigger now.

  32. Waine Wilkins

    Nice beer I will buy this again. Swift delivery
    Witch was left in my safe place. Well done Beers of Europe

  33. David Beckham

    Not bad, drinkable. Lingering aftertaste
