The German version of the Bohemian Pilsner is an imitation of its Bohemian cousin, but has evolved as a distinctly different style due to the different brewing conditions found in Germany. Harder water created a beer style that is actually complemented by the high sulfate content of Bavarian water.
German Pilsners usually taste more bitter or earthy than their Bohemian counterparts. They are also known simply as "Pils" in Germany.
