Arrives a very pale gold. Nice foamy head with some decent enough lacings.

Very little aroma. Light grainy malt.

Again, grainy malt with a hint of bitter hops, maybe a little bit of apple, but really not much else.

Drinks fine, mouth is crisp and well carbonated, right on style. A mediocre pilsner.

A pint can courtesy of the Berlin Orchestra. Seems that travel with an ample supply and were kind enough to donate some to the local crew.

A very pale straw gold with a white head. A bit of lace. A touch of carbonation.

Nose brings a nice balance of malt and hops.

Taste is light, crisp and well balanced. This is what Bud should taste like. A highly drinkable crisp refreshing beer with real pilsner flavor. Some grassy hops with a nice bit of spice.

Feel is a bit heftier than you would think. Not water but light. With enough carbonation to make for a good quaffing.

A nice easy drinking brew. Typically German zoned and refreshing. Nice.

.5 litre brown bottle poured into my old Berliner Kindl pint straight sleeve glass. The glass left Berlin in early 1990, just after the wall came down in Nov 89. The beer left Berlin in October 2006 and was consumed in Dec the same year, dated, best before 05/2007.

I remember drinking this beer by the bucket load (mostly on tap) while living in the city, my memory is playing tricks, because I thought it was better than this.

Times change and so do our taste buds, so this review is about the new bottle and my tastes now.

Looks OK, Golden yellow, clean, clear and sparkling. Whiter than white head, which stayed.

Poured cold, so no real aroma at first, mixed herbs and wheat arrived as the beer warmed up.

Light hop flavour, wheat maybe, but dry and thirstquenching, mouthfeel is not great, but the dryness stays for a while.

Not what I remember, but a steady pilsner in both style and taste.

Bottle: 50cl; Served: Glass Tankard; Bought: Local store at Berlin .
Bitter and hoppy German Pilsener. The colour is perfectly amberish. The carbon dioxide level is just perfect (very nice mouthfeel). The foam is very firm but does not last a lot. The taste of this plzeň is just classic.
Perfect for pork ribs curry stew (at least this is what I served it with).

a bright golden beer with a creamy head that fades into a dense foam of 1/2 inch thick.

Smell of light grainy pilsnermalt with a clean bottom fermented smell. A light grassy hop smell.

Taste of a very light pilsner, without the usual sulfur, which is quite normal in a German pilsner. It appears to have some wheat notes, which round of the body and add body and grainy taste. The yeast is very light and clean. Drinkability is great.

Overall this is an average Pils except for taste and drinkability so I'll cover on the two.

taste; outstanding pilsner flavor, nice balance of all ingredients, just what one looks for.

drinkability; really tasty and smooth without being too light. No problem at all to drink all day long after a nice meal.

I really must compliment this Pils, far superior to any of the others Berlin has to offer. I never asked a local but my friends from other parts of Germany all agree to this as well.

Served in Berlin.

A: Clear blonde with thin head of fair to poor retention.

Sm: Clean barley; nothing special.

T: Slick open to standard barley body with a refreshing finish. Nothing unique or bold here, though it does satisfy in a simple fashion.

Mf: Nicely coarse, but a bit too wet.

Dr: Not a great beer, but the price is right.

The colour is yellow with a tint of gold. The high head quickly sinks down to a thin white lid, leaving some lacing.

The smell is… not very inviting. Some sweet, almost frowsy malt as well as some chemical bitterness. Earthy notes of mud are mixed with wet paper.

Wait a minute! Is this beer beyond its Best before date? No – the label says “01 08”. And I know that the (brown) bottle have been stored in a dark and cool environment both in the store and in my home.

The taste is as “skunky”: Some sticky sweet dough-like malt, hints of wet cardboard and chalk. The aftertaste got some very fragile bitter notes, saccharin sweetness and some light earthy flavours in the finish.

The carbonation is medium to weak. The bubbles are small. The liquid is watery.

The label states that this is “The classic premium beer of capital Berlin. First rate hops.”. I doubt that statement…

Pale golden colour, clear, large thick head, decent retention. Aroma was mainly Hallertau hop. Tasted an initial malty sweetness, finish was very dry, like a north German pils. Texture on the thick side, not too much carbonation, went a bit flat, smooth enough. Drinkable enough although slightly forgetable, started out like a Helles but finished like a typical northen beer.
