This is probably one of the best value-for-money drinking beers you can get in Australia. It's nothing special as far as pilseners go, but at $15 for a six pack of 500ml cans, you really can't go far wrong. Quite watery with high carbonation and a medium, tolerably metallic hoppy bitterness. Would recommend to anyone who wants to get pissed fast and cheap but not resort to VB or XXXX Bitters.

For the money its a really good drop. $15 a 6 pack here in Australia and comes in a great 500ml can. On that front it smashed most other macro beers off the shelf.
In terms of quality its ok. Certainly brewed on a budget but there is some malt complexity in there. A touch of depth in the malt profile brings forth a late sweetness which I find good and also necessary as the hops are sharp and very grassy. A little poor quality and probably not the best saaz going around but all for the price its pretty good.
Quite a soft carbonation and almost creamy mouthfeel late in the piece. Carbonation feels a bit fine for a pilsner but not unsatisfying.

0.5 liter can into a Pilsner Urquell mug.
Yellow, transparent, white foam. Standard pils look.
The smell is clean. Sweet pils malt and a kind of nondescript hop aroma takes a back seat.
The taste is again very clean. Some malt, more nondescript hop bitterness. Light-bodied, perhaps too much so, but nothing about it is unpleasant.
A nice amount of bitterness in the after-taste leaves a tinge on your tongue, though it feels at times astringent.
Amongst the other German beers that are priced similarly in this neck of the woods, Bitburger Warsteiner and DAB mostly, this is the best. Nothing to be excited about but I'll have a few in a part on a hot summer day in Italy.
Dirt cheap too. € 0.68 / 0.5 liter can.

This lager beer is by far the best bang for your buck. It is brewed according to the German purity laws which is a trademark only German beers receive. In the original text, the only ingredients that could be used in the production of beer were water, barley and hops.
Beers that are brewed according to the reinheitsgebot are beloved by those that know their lagers. Where Belgium lager beers tend to taste watery and the Dutch give you a hangover, this is by no means the case with reinheitsgebot brewed German beers and neither with Oetinger.
The taste is fresh and the bubbles are slightly reminiscent of champagne, it bursts in your mouth and leaves a pleasant bitter aftertaste. Freshness is what keeps coming to mind when drinking this strong flavored beer served cold straight from the bottle. I am a big fan of lager beers and this one is right on top of my list. It is just as good as Warsteiner but it's incredibly cheap, only 6,99 euro per 24 x 33 cl bottles. The company doesn't do any concessions on quality, but has few personal and excluded all third party's from business to keep the prices low. And low priced beer of very good quality is exactly what i like.

A- Very light golden, perfectly transapent. Couple of finger white head, shows decent retention at first but soon recedes without leaving even a hint of lacing
S- Weak. A basic malty/grainy feel, nothing reminding of noble hops
T- Grainy crispness upfront, a hint of lemon, a touch of undifened hop bitterness, quite metallic
M- Light body, extremely high carbonation, brings life but feels almost offensive at times
O- Low quality beer. Their Export was a little better than the standard macro lager, this one is not

S - 500ml can is the only way to go, no skunk at all and more beer for your money.
A - Typical macro lager piss yellow prehaps a shade darker.
S - Light malt, no skunk, some hops, very clean
T - Just a decent Pils ticks all the boxes, taste is exactly like the smell, clean, malts not too sweet, nice hop bitterness.
M - Lots of carbonation but it not over carbonated, good zing on the tounge.
O - This is the cheapest beer you can buy in Australia and its fully imported from Germany none of this made under licence bull shite. It craps all over our local macros and I rate this higher than any Becks or Heinekein which is much more expensive. Definatly my go to session beer when i want to knock a few back. Low price and good taste = WIN in my book.
