A soft malty aroma and the radiant gold-yellow colour give evidence to its sunny temperament.

Pils

The unique landscape of our Black Forest produces a first-class quality of water which we use for our beers: this water, fresh from the springs of the nearby Glaswald nature reserve, is as soft as velvet and boasts a unique smoothness which develops a sparkling character in our fine, hop-based Pils. The special appeal of the Alpirsbacher Klosterbräu Pils lies in its pale colour and its typical tangy flavour – which it gets from the fine aromatic hops and selected summer barley. Lovers of pure natural beer of the Pilsner type recognise its natural sparkling character and its invigoratingly refreshing taste at the first sip.
