Presentation: 12 oz green bottle with a “Best Before End” freshness date on the back label. Brewed in accordance to the German Purity Law “Reinheitsgebot” so the assumption is that this is an all malt beer.
Appearance: Pale yellow with a slim white head, very light in colour for an all malt beer and the head retention lacks.
Smell: Thin graininess with a faded hop aroma that has ghost like skunk and musty aromas.
Taste: Rolling smoothness with a refreshing crispness show that they have the mouth feel down, solid medium carbonation with a moderate body shows signs of thinness. Odd hop twang which seems one of the hallmark characteristics for this beer and beers similar in stature, faded and with a stale bitterness. Malt is quite thin with lots of grain and husk on the palate to go around, touch of sweetness though the grain is dominant. Hop twang is enhanced when the beer dries up in the finish.
Notes: This beer is right up there with Heineken and other Euro lagers that have been chewed up and spit out by the stressed brewing processes (pasteurization). It is what it is, there are better ones to choose from.
