"Neumarkt Original Pils." 5.2% ABV. 1 litre green plastic bottle with branded grey plastic screw-top acquired at a Shop and Go supermarket in Bucharest and served cold into an unbranded bierkrug there. Reviewed live. Expectations are low given the bottle format.

Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

No bubble show forms as it's poured.

HEAD: Half a finger in width. Fizzles out within 10 seconds, leaving no lacing.

BODY: Clear pale yellow-copper. Clean; no yeast particulate or hop sediment is visible.

Appears adequately carbonated. Far from unique or special.

AROMA: Pils malts, helles malts, generic malt sweetness, and cheap generic barley.

It's a subpar aroma overall, and is average in terms of strength. Can't say I'm excited for the first sip.

TASTE: Pils malts, helles malts, generic malt sweetness, and cheap barley. It's as simple a flavour profile as you'll find, and the flavours are all quite shallow.

Average duration and intensity of flavour. Largely unbalanced. Not a gestalt build, but a cohesive one.

No yeast character, alcohol, or other off-notes come through.

TEXTURE: Strangely dry and coarse, especially on the finish. Stale. Poor overall presence on the palate. Overcarbonated. Poorly executed.

OVERALL: Drinkable but subpar. Very low quality and cheap tasting. I wouldn't trifle with this swill again. There're better budget beers in Romania. This is quite poor.
