Other Information

Veltins Pilsner is a bottom fermented pilsner that appears bright gold in colour. It has an aroma of citrus, herbs and nuts on the nose and a dry, perfectly bodied taste on the tongue. It uses spring water from the mountain it is situated at the base of to create a beverage of utmost refreshment.

Brauerei C & A Veltins opened its door in 1852, bought by Clemens Veltins, having taken over the Franz Kramer brewery. It was named after Clemens twin sons, Carl and Anton, who would go on to succeed Clemens and become the owners of the brewery in 1893. It is still in Veltins hands today, with Susanne Veltins taking over the brewery in 1994. Over the years the name has gained a big reputation and is now on the front of the stadium for Bundesliga team FC Schalke 04.

  1. One of my favourite pilsners

    My local sells this on draft, but I also order from beers of Europe and have tasted this in Germany on several occasions. A really light citrus flavour with a hint of nut, it is slightly tangy but I like that taste. I probably buy this beer more than any other. Highly recommend.

  2. Maximilian Evans

    A great tasting pilsener with a well deserved good reputation. Would recommend to anyone looking to buy a German pilsener.

  3. Andy Nichols

    Nice classic tasting pilsener. You certainly wouldn’t be disappointed to be drinking it. There is however nicer tasting more balanced pilseners out there in my opinion.

  4. Steven Allen

    Malty with a hint of bubblegum flavour, dry white wine after taste, would appeal to the Heineken drinker but not as acidic , as the lattet!

  5. Chris

    Couldn’t get a taste for it, unbalanced taste for my liking. Too much going on, couldn’t taste any citrus or nut notes.

  6. Laura Scotland

    Crisp and refreshing

  7. Mike London

    A real go to. Not overly complex but lovely when well chilled. Yes none of the exotic hop taste that seems to be all the rage at the moment. Just a classic crisp dry classic volume pilsener.

  8. Derek B

    Crisp and refreshing when well chilled.

  9. Gareth Roberts

    Light refreshing Pilsner a classic taste and familiar to German and Czech Drinkers.

  10. Jambojim

    Great service again and Veltins is one of my favourite beers when i travel in Germany

  11. Craig Cannell

    A crisp and easy drinker . My go to beer when living in Germany in the 80s. A good starter Pils for those unfamiliar with German beers.

  12. Evelyn Pepper

    Excellent company, selling excellent and difficult products to buy in U.K.
    They never let you down, even when the product you want is out of stock they manage to get it to you as soon as possible. We have dealt with them for some years now and won’t change. A big THANKS to ‘Beers of Europe’.
    Veltins is a delicious Pilsner which we first learned of in Ratingen and have continued to enjoy ever since.
