3.23/5 rDev -9.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 4
Presentation: Served in a 0.5l branded mug at Restaurant Leibniz-Klause in Berlin.
Appearance: Pale golden/yellow beer with an ample creamy foam lace.
Taste: Quite herbally with a faint dose of anise in the back. Thin, low sweetness. Hops takeover with a coarse, earthy, rindy, citrus peel flavour that builds to a semi-astringent level. Dry finish.
Notes: An okay pils. Some of the flavours seemed a bit odd though, out of place and balance ... or rather forced. Especially the hops -- hop extract?
Used this beer to wash down my plate Königsberger Klopse ...
Serving type: on-tap

3.68/5 rDev +3.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Presentation: 11.2 oz green long neck bottle with a freshness date on the front label. This is one of those durable glass bottles that are reused.
Appearance: Pale yellow and crystal clear with a light webbing of white lace all the way down the glass.
Smell: Grassy hop, honey and herb in the aroma … quite clean.
Taste: Light to medium in body with a bold crispness. Big accent of hops, noble hops without a doubt … very soft but not with out giving a spicy herbal bitterness first. A little thin on the malt but it makes up ground with a pale bready flavour and snappy graininess. Finishes on the dry side with a clean grainy and hoppy palate.
Notes: Definitely a thirst quencher pils, light enough to suck down on a very hot day while sweating at the bbq grilling some turkey sausages to pair with the next Jever.
Serving type: bottle
