Yooper, have you seen Kai's video on decoction? It's a sticky thread and very interesting. I think I answered my question above - decoction is probably the difference.

They aren't all using the same grist bill. PU is made with Czech malt, Konig with German and Trumer I'm not sure what they use. Each pilsner malt has its' own charateristics. There are also differences in brewing techniques and the yeast strains.
