Pairing beer and cigars involves finding complementary flavors and profiles that enhance each other to improve the overall sensory experience. I wrote a more detailed guide that covers generally how you should pair beer and cigars. It's definitely worth a read if you want to learn more about this.
Pilsners are known for their light and clean profile, featuring a balance between malt sweetness and hop bitterness, often accompanied by floral or herbal notes. When pairing pilsners with cigars, it's generally recommended to opt for cigars with a milder to medium body and smoother flavors. Cigars that offer creamy, slightly sweet, or nutty profiles can complement the refreshing nature of pilsners.
