What an odd little gem this was. Drunk out of the bottle at a bar deep in East Berlin called "Conmux" -- which in itself is another little gem. 0,33l short brown bottle, with a ceramic flip-top lid. Freshness date on the back.

As this was in the bottle, I couldn't really judge its appearance or smell, so I'll assume it's average for the style.

Flavours consisted of a thin sweetness, slick/oily hop bitterness that lent a cheesey, grassy and skunky edged character. Quite bitter all around with notes of salt and mineral, both in body and flavour.

A very unusual, and at first, odd beer ... but the stuff grows on you.

3.64/5  rDev +2.8%

I got this at the Binny's store in Bloomingdale, IL. $2.99 for a 330ml brown bottle with a ceramic flip top cap. There is a best before freshness date stamped on the bottom of the back label. Mine is marked 8/12/14, so it's still plenty fresh.

The beer poured a mostly clear pale gold color with a 2½-finger fluffy white head that lasted several minutes. There was also a fair amount of thick lacing left on the glass.

Rather weak nose. Just picking up a little grassy hops.

Stronger than anticipated hop presence here. It's a bit bitter, but there's plenty of bready malt and lemon twang to keep it balanced. The bitterness continues to linger in the aftertaste.

Light to medium body with moderate to medium carbonation.

This is a decent German pilsener.
