Looks golden in colour.
Grainy sweet inviting smell.
Tastes of sweet grain, slight bittersweet finish.
Mouth feel is good as the carbonation is low and it's smooth.
Overall really enjoyable lager and would definitely buy again.

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a Pilsner glass. The bottle was a swing-top with an appealing illustration on the label. The beer poured Light-yellow with a light head of white foam. Pleaseant typical lager aroma, malty with some straw and grass. Mouthfeel substantial but no so rich as to be heavy, with a moderate carbonation. Taste was crisp, mainly grainy and malty with hints of grass and hops. Quite dry with a slightly bitter finish. Gave an overall good impression. Unique and memorable, especially for a lager.

"Adler Koenig" means "eagle king" in german. Pours light-yellow beer with meager white head, leaving rapidly only a ring of froth. Fresh, very grainy nose of malts with a little bit of hops. Full body with pleasant delicate bitter finish. Moderate carbonation and very good common impression.

500ml bottle as seen in the pic. liked the artwork. Bought from Lamb’s Thriftway in Wilsonville OR. $4.59 Pours a clear golden colour with an initially large frothy white head. That fades down fast but leaves OK lace. Ok biscuity,malty aromas. Some sweet floral hop and a touch of dough. Not that bad really. Smooth malty semi-sweet taste..leaves a tinge of the hop in the last of the gulp. KInda weak compared even to the aroma. Its OK in the mouth.. bout average for style. OK drink, not the best but I can drink this

There is a lot of good beer to be had in Germany...this isn't one of them. Despite the nice looking bottle, inside is something unremarkable. A thin euro-lager, this has only some weak malt/grain on the nose, a thin palate with a touch of off flavors, and a finish that is not particularly pleasant to me. Sorry, there is too much good beer to try this again.

500ml bottle. Pokal glass. Intense honey aromas as cap is removed. Golden color, chill haze appearance. White froth, brief crown. Sulfur, green wood, green apples aromas, light acid on the back. Grainy & dried upfront with hints of honey. Medium body. Moderate to high carbonation. Dense texture. Low bitterness but harsh touch, malt tendency. Sweet finish & sweetish aftertaste. Boring.
