Rothaus Pils 5.1% 5 Litre (8.8 Pint) Mini Keg


Experience Rothaus Pils at home with an authentic mini keg


An outstanding German Pilsner from Rothaus, one of the most respected and admired German beer brands in the world.

Made with the purest, softest spring water from protected sources in the beautiful Black Forest mountain region of South West Germany, Rothaus Pils is a uniquely pure and flavoursome German beer.

The best aromatic hops from Tettnang and Hallertau as well as local malt made from summer barley and the purest spring water from the Black Forest give Rothaus Pils its uniquely fresh and tangy taste.

An absolute ‘must try’!

Tasting Notes

“Truly a standard in Pils production. The perfect balance between playful southern German sweetness and a clear bitter northern German taste.” - Oliver Wesseloh (World champion beer sommelier)

Appearance: Very fine, long-lasting, bright white head. Nice, clear light gold.

Aroma: The nose registers a fresh Alpine meadow. Very fresh, invigorating aroma. Quite subtle in the background: gentle notes of grains and yeast.

Flavour: Starts with a quite lean body that becomes almost creamy thanks to its good effervescence. Very light notes of malt and caramel come through that maintain a balance with the noticeable, but never overwhelming bitterness. The taste gets thinner and fresher toward the end. The freshly mowed meadow comes through again and a slight bitterness pops up to say: I’m still here, too. A subtle bitter aftertaste, but never overwhelming or scratchy.

Special aspect: The fine-tuned compilation of aromatic hops and local malt from spring barley lend the Pilsner its uniquely zesty and fresh flavour.
