3.78/5  rDev +7.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance- very light gold with a white as can be bright head. Carbonation bubbles dance to some fast paced techno music. Moderate lacing when poured. When finished leaves a handsome lace witch is great to look at when burping.

Smell- lemon crisp hops. Very citrus character present. Some wet fern leaves in the back.

Taste- round with sweet grain, good amounts of hopy crispness witch was delicious. Bitter big chewy flavor.

Mouthfeel- watery with a good amount of carbonation.

Drinkability- very easy to drink. The bright hop offers no discomfort.


A good pool side drink, especially with the flip cork so when not attending your beer you can keep the bugs out.

3.15/5  rDev -10.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

The beer was poured into a pub glass.

Appearance: The beer poured a clear golden yellow coloration. There was loose bubbling carbonation rising to the top of my glass. The head was about an inch thick off white coloration. The head had good retention. Thin rows of lacing remained on the glass.

Smell: I got a kind of corny freshly mowed grass smell off the beer.

Taste: The beer had a slightly biscuity flavor. There was a bit of grassy hoppyness to the beer finishing.

Mouthfeel/ Drinkability: The beer was light bodied with ample carbonation. This is an ok sessionable beer.

3.38/5  rDev -4%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Bottle Inspection: 11.2 fl oz. $1.99 at the 19th hole in Harker Heights, best before 06.10.06 (sampled 03.25.06) Imported by Noble Union Trading LTD Co., Houston, TX 77098.

Aroma: Very faint light grain and corn notes, touch of toast and smoke.

Appearance: Clear deep gold, edge or amber, good finger of white fading head.

Flavor: Clear, clean lager with a slight peppery twang. Some buttered biscuit notes. No skunk from the clear bottle!

Mouthfeel: Full carbonation, light body, slow fading coat, maybe a touch of oil.

Overall Impression: A Mexican style lager from Germany? Enjoyable and interesting, but not one I’d crave.

This is the third of four Flensburgers I have available to me, yet thisone so-far, didn't stand up and say "Wow." I mean its a good little Dort to be had, it steps back to that typical german taste and mouthfeel.
It poured an impressive pure, clear gold with good carbonation that offered no fizz but plenty of frothy, pillow-like head stuff. Lace was abound that ringed and clumped to the glass.
The aroma was grassy and hay. The taste heald that grassy hop note with abit of dry stainless steal. Thats what threw me off for this comes in its cool, clear, swingtop bottle.
Drinkability was ok and the mouth feels dry and metalic at the end.
Bottle color may matter, I really liked the Pils, it comes in a brown bottle, where thisone is clear.

Cool 11.2 swing top green tinted bottle pours a clear golden color with a big white fluffy head that leaves a good lacing in my glass. Skunky aromas, light bready, cracker and lemon flavors. Medium bodied with a really nice soft mouthfeel, finishes dry.
