15th Sep 2013.

Dumpy 33cl bottle taken on the patio of my Ste Maxime hotel after I'd brought this over the Alps with a few other beers.

Typical Pilsner look: bright, clean, clear and golden.

No smell worthy of note: gets my standard 3 for a non-smelling lager/pilsner.

The taste was a let down too, dry and bitter, which was fine, but the metallic feel the flavour gave off was very nasty, almost didn't finish it. The beer was well in date and it had settled in the room fridge for two days before opening, but I wasn't impressed.

Serving type: bottle

look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 1.75 | overall: 2

Gold can poured into a small 8 ounce O'Hara glass. Pale gold with a flurry of rising bubbles, a fluffy head of white foam that rises above the rim, forming sturdy crags and peaks. Head lasts for a bit.

Smells like swill, sulfuric lager yeast and bland wet cereal grains.
Watery insipid feel, club soda, soggy wet grains, slight astringency. I drank a PBR right after this and it was so much cleaner and drinkable. This has too much astringency and blah papery grains in the taste to be decent a session beer.

2.13/5  rDev -25.8%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Purchased from the Kaiser's in Berlin.

Served slightly chilled.

Pours a crystal clear straw yellow with a quarter inch white head that dissipates after ~1 minute down to nothing.

Aroma begins with noble hops, but then changes to a raw graininess as it warms.

Taste is an extremely light balance of earthy noble hop flavor and again that raw grain flavor. Very watery.

Mouthfeel is watery with very little carbonation for the style.

Overall, mediocre at best. A disappointment compared to other widely available offerings here in Germany.
