Berliner Pilsener
,5l can

This beer should not be confused with the Berliner Kindl Pils, as any good Berliner will tell you. This is Berliner Pils, the one with the gold label. It's a basic pils, not unlike so many out there, which probably utilizes less expensive grain and hops and spends less time lagering.

Appearance: Clear, golden, average bright white head with average retention and lacing.

Smell: Unfortunately, basic "beer": the grain doesn't shine, and doesn't really come of as grainy or bready of ever sweetish; and the hops are dull and non-descript.

Taste: At least it's well balanced. It could certainly be more polished, but it delivers a firm blend of malt, dull hop, and stiff bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light in body and crisp with a median carbonation.

Overall: This is a workingman's beer. If it was an American lager it might be Miller High Life or Pabst Blue Ribbon. There are no faults to it, but it lacks pizazz.

Berlin is awash with this Pilsner: has it taken the best of 'Berliner Kindl' and 'Schulthesis Pils' from the 80's before the wall fell, or is it an all new super-brew made with the cheapest ingrediants available?

It's not the former: it's a basic golden, bright Pilsner with all the usual attributes; but nothing to stand it apart from all the rest. Crisp? Yes. Clean? Yes. Refreshing? Yes, but is it interesting? No.
